Default 24-inch flat panels

Has anyone sprung for one of the new, increasingly affordable 24-inch or larger flat panels? I wonder how they are for photo editing?

I just wonder if it'll be too big? I've found a 20.1" LCD to be ideal for my work. 1600x1200 gives a lot of real estate to play with. The smaller size also means the pixels are nice and small and certainly has proved very useful and accurate for photo editing. I'd prefer another 20.1" and run a two monitor setup rather than one 24" (would probably be cheaper too).

I'm using an Apple Cinema Display 23 inch screen on my PC. Now anything else is too small Seriously, it's great for Photoshop work (and probably gaming, but I don't know for sure on that point) and other programs where you want to see more on your screen, but other programs do not fill up the screen (1900X1220). However, it does make multi-tasking nice as you can have pretty good size windows open and visible simultaneously.
