BUDGET Monitor Suggestions?

I'm looking to spend the least amount possible for a monitor (21" or bigger) that would be sufficient for a higher end amateur.
Most of what I do that goes to print is family portraits and graduation pics.
By 'go to print' I'm talking Walmart here, but you can get acceptable results on a good day.
Sadly, I'm trying to keep it under $200 if possible.
If anyone can make some recommendations, or at least tell me what to avoid, I would greatly appreciate it.

Thanks Pictus. One reviewer on Amazon loved it and gave it 5 stars.
The other, a 20 year photographer, hated it and gave it 2 stars.
I saw $165.47 and fell in love. I may get that one.
