I just bought the 19” ultra-sharp for my wife about two weeks ago.
It’s great! Very sharp, great color, set up is essentially automatic, and the price was great, I think I paid about $270.
I looked around on the web a bit first, and found a couple of test reports in the last few months that rated the Dell as a good unit.
One thing to Note: Make sure you look at the native resolution for whatever you buy, because you do want to use that setting, as they really do look better there than at any other. Most of the 19” models I looked at had a native resolution of 1280 x 1024, which was higher than my wife had been running on her old 19” CRT. So even though this unit has a larger displayable area, and has a better picture in every respect, her text and icons are a little smaller than they were. If that’s a concern, make sure you can look at the monitor in lower resolutions before you buy to make sure it looks ok at the lower, non-optimal resolutions. For whatever it’s worth, the Dell I bought still looked very good at both 1280 x 960 and 1024 x 768, just a little less sharp (and you really did have to look close) as it did at 1280 x 1024.
