Can anyone pls give some input in this decision

I am looking for an LCD monitor, probably 19-22"
My primary uses are
1. Watching movies (60%) - I watch from bed
2. Programming (40%)

I am guessing wide is the way to go (for watching movies).
If 19" then wide will probably be a bad idea (too few visible lines of code), so I am thinking 22" wide is the best of both worlds.
I don't really game.
My gfx card supports DVI so I would probably want to make use of that.

Looking in mid range, nothing too cheapy that I lose quality, but nothing too expensive that I will be eating toast for the next month.

(maybe the Samsung 2232GW??)

Any help would be appreciated.

i just recently got an HP W2007 20" HD LCD widescreen from walmart....for the price (< $300) i REALLY like it....i may be biased since the monitor i had beforehand was absolute junk (9 year old dell CRT monitor with a junked up color profile)...some of the reviews claim that it's not great for movies....but...we watch our netflix "watch instantly" movies on it all the time and i haven't noticed anything wrong with it...i almost prefer it over our older 27" CRT TV (again some funky color profiles there)....there's also a 22" version (w2207)
