YAMT - Yet another Monitor thread

After my recent "I want a bigger monitor thread" ... i've decided that I want a 24" monitor (to get 1920x1200 res), and being a compulsive shopper ... I need it NOW!

So ...
DELL E248WDF DELL E248WDF 24" WIDESCREEN TFT MONITOR
http://www.pcworld.co.uk/martprd/product/seo/859393
£270

Or
Samsung T240 24" Widescreen Rose Black TFT Monitor
http://www.pcworld.co.uk/martprd/product/seo/803063
£350

Will I really see much difference for the £80 difference?
Can you recommend anything else that's damn good at that size?

Only other thing i've looked at is the Dell Ultrasharp 27" ... http://accessories.euro.dell.com/sna...hs1&sku=170559
But at £600 quid, I could get two of the 24" ones and run dual head. (Besides we all like twice the head right! .... ok lame joke!).


Uses ... mainly day to day work ... spreadsheets, loads of word documents ... needing several open at a time, visio, email, web browsing.

However still want it to be respectable for films, gaming and also photochopping!
