It is definitely a good monitor if you need the features it has and are willing to drop the cash for it, however there are some good 24" monitors out there that dont cost $300.  The main selling point for that monitor is the slim bezel, so I would say if that does not matter to you then keep looking if you want to save the money.

Ah! Rly? Then what other good monitors that you will personally recommend then? I've been looking at some BenQ's monitor and they are not bad as well.. if i could get another good monitor with presumeably with good color reproduction etc then i'll definitely go for that one.. and it doesnt need to be 24inch.. 23 is viable as well

I usually suggest getting an IPS monitor, like the one you have chosen.  Their colors are often more accurate and the viewing angles are better.

 

Additional monitors include:

 

ASUS VS24AH-P Black 24"

 

Dell UltraSharp U2412M Black IPS Panel 24"

 

AOC q2963Pm Black 29"  (If you really want to spend $300+ on a monitor...)

Personally, i would recommend the same ASUS monitor that DJB recommended just because I like ASUS, but if your personal preference is DELL than i would also recommend the DELL one that DJB picked as well.
just my 2 cents. :)

I'd opt fpr the dell, but I don't think you'd be disapointed with either the asus or the dell. You probably already mentioned this, and I'm just being lazy, but what was it again that you intend to use this monitor for? Less-than-pro/prosumer photographic-intended models will still work just fine for average photographic editing needs; same goes for monitors made for gaming. Asus and Dell are both good choices.

Dell monitors, especially theh IPS, are very very good monitors. However, the expense of this, is quality. I was low on budget with my PC build, and had to resort to this really crappy 150 dollar monitor, basically, if you dragged something around, there would be a shadow image behind it.
