Why go for another Apple screen when there are so many other good options? I have a Nec 2090Uxi--I paid a bit under US$800 for mine--and I'm quite pleased with it.

You may want larger but look at Nec's line of professional level monitors. Do a search on "nec multisync 90 series" (with quotes, single or double) to see what's available as they come in a number of different sizes--ahhh...found the Nec Australia professional level monitor site.

At 21" there is the 2190UXi and the 2190UXp which is a bit less expensive and the only difference I can find between them is that the UXi rotates into portrait mode but other than that, they appear to be the same monitor

Also, just recently on the ColorSync Users list, the HP monitors (specifically, the HP LP2475w and the LP2480zx) were well rated as was the Dell 2209WA which while not considered a professional model, is apparently a decent LCD because it has an e-IPS panel--apparently one should avoid "TN panel" LCDs.

Just found a CNET Austraila review for the Dell 2209WA from January 2009.

Hope that helps...
