Have to agree with aspect ratio.
At my school the White boards are 4:3 the monitors are Widescreen (16:9, not my favoured 16:10) but becuse they share the same picture the widescreen uses the 4:3 setup and stretches. Makes creating circles fun
And the IC techy doesn't like them switched to the perminent 4:3 mode the Dell screens have where it all looks good
Anyway, that setup looks poor on the screens. Look for IPS panels, they cost more. Still I use TN panels and they are still much nicer then my old CRT's on my eyes though mine are quite a few yers old now.
Quite often good to look at reviews on them and see what colour gamut or quality is like, you cannot do that in the Dixons group shops.
As for TV's I find Richer Sounds have a better display and setup.
Also for Computer screens I prefer matt and semi-matt over the shiny ones, which for laptops (diverting a bit) make it a bugger to find. either need to go Business range or Samsung it seems.
This review is somewhere to start for a nice size monitor. http://www.anandtech.com/show/6115/hp-2 ... ps-monitor
