Default Monitor suggestion?

We are in the final year of a three-year Express Exchange agreement with Viewsonic for the P225 monitor. The monitors are OK, but we're on our third replacement. The things just go "poooof" too easily.

Anyway, we are NOT planning to continue with the P225's once the warranty/exchange is up. I'm looking for suggestions for replacements. We have workstation cubicles that have "windows" 22" x 22" in which to fit a monitor--and would like to find a model large enough to fill that space as much as possible. Cost target $800 to $1200 each. These are used almost exclusively for print DTP, mostly InDesign, Quark, Photoshop, Illustrator, Acrobat, CorelDraw...as well as some internet access. Windows 2000 Pro.

The last time we went monitor-shopping, we looked into flat-panel LCD's but came to the conclusion that although resolution and display were great, they did not render colors accurately. In the last three years, have they gotten any better with color accuracy?

Any specific model recommendations?
