What's currently the cheapest or 'best value' cheaper monitor for semi-pro usage?

Hi folks,

I'm looking to spend the least amount of money for a screen for editing photos for semi-pro photography purposes.

Features like pivoting and high response rate aren't needed. I'm not too worried about the size or movies/games.

I'm hoping to spend between £150 and £200 (160-220€) on amazon. But I can spend more.

I've been looking but there are a perplexing number of screens. Some look promising but then have "too high a minimum luminance' or inappropriate fixed gamma options (ie. no 2.2).

So far I have only one on my hit list, the

Asus PB238Q

Any advice gratefully received.
