It should be fine. I have a Dell 24 inch LCD and Blue Ray/ HD Dvd look just great on that. Much better then a standard DVD where the monitor shows up the limitations of the DVD format.

Avoid Acer brand, it is not great. If you want a good monitor go with ViewSonic

I also have a Phillips which is ok but the Viewsonic is better.

Brands dont actually matter, the panel in the screen matters much more.
Not all Acer monitors are bad. The Acer AL2416W and AL2416Ws are good screens, they use S-PVA panels I think.

(copied from a previous post)
You can check which panel a certain screen has here:
http://www.tftcentral.co.uk/panelsearch.htm

TN: Lowest cost, worst viewing angles and colour reproduction, low image processing lag. Apparently best for fast paced gaming, worst for image editing and professsional work where colour accuracy is important. TN panels can only display 262k colours natively and use dithering to display 16.7m.

*VA (MVA, PVA, S-PVA): Middle of the road, better viewing angles and colour reproduction, typically image processing lag (as high as 64ms!). Typically best black levels and contrast. Can display 16.7m colours but unfortunately (or fortunately if you're a design professional) most newer panels of this type are wide gamut, meaning sRGB images are oversaturated in non colour managed applications. Can suffer from slight horizontal contrast shift (like TN's vertical contrast shift, but not as obvious)

IPS (S-IPS, H-IPS): Most expensive technology, viewing angles and colour reproduction almost as good as (or even better than) that of a CRT, medium image processing (between 20-40ms). Almost all are wide gamut (which is a disadvantage, or an advantage depending on how you look at it). No contrast shift, but on non NEC screens (NEC screens have what is called an ATW polariser), can suffer from a slight washed out look when viewed from extreme horizontal angles

All panel types have similar response times so ghosting is not really a problem anymore. Although some panels use overdrive, so you get a 'negative' ghosting effect, depending on the background eg on the TN (viewsonic 22") I'm using now, there is a slight ghosting trail, which isn't noticable on my IPS screen. So in this instance, TN has worse ghosting than IPS, even though the TN has a "quicker" documented (5ms for TN, 6ms for IPS) response time.
