    What size are you looking for? Resolution? Features? Panel type? Not enough info because you basically said any monitor is fine

    Sorry, I would like to have 24 -27 inch.

    For a Software Developer, It should be Full HD

    Features ? Should get along with iMac without much trouble or requiring any third-party accessories.

    Panel Type? Whichever is in the price range but need to include those three important things above

    Thanks

    This looks amazing, seems to be the same what henrikrox already recommended. If you want smaller, then this looks cool. See this and this

    Thanks, but is there any of those will have any problem connecting to the new iMac 27.

    I heard that the iMac use a mini displayport and that can cost you even more if you buy a monitor that doen't have the port.

    You just need an adapter if it uses something else but Mini DisplayPort. There are adapters for DVI, VGA and HDMI so any monitor is just fine

    Refurbished 24" LED cinema display? Or even a 27" refurbished when they begin to pop along?

    Consider buying a regular HDTV and use a mini DP to HDMI converter. This will work well as long as you're satisfied with 1920 x 1080 output. You could get a 37 inch 1080p HDTV and still be within your budget.
