    When it comes to monitors, buy the most expensive you can afford. That will dictate the size and the features. Now if you're on a tight budget, there are secondhand shops that will sell a 24" for around $60. The cheaper they come, the much shorter they'll last. 

    No, don't use a TV as your monitor. Text is horrible. You can use a large TV as a great secondary monitor for movies and games though.

    You can get a decent one for under $100, but I'm going to point you at a BenQ monitor, a brand known for better color adjustments.



    $120 @ Amazon, and with a -7/+5 for $2 less at Newegg.

    Highly rated IPS Panel, auto-ambient lighting adjustments.

    VGA, HDMI (1.4), DisplayPort inputs. Has built-in speakers, but usually you use external ones. It is handy to have the 3.5mm headphone jack at the monitor. Cable tucks into the base. Flicker free and Low Bluelight. 3 year warranty. Tilt adjustable, sturdy base. Resists fingerprints on the plastic. slim bezel. 250 nits brightness. 

    There are definitely other good choices, but in a basic use monitor, this has some nice features.
