short of the size difference, is this a better monitor?
Samsung does make a very good monitor. I'd go BenQ strictly for size (actually, I think you'll regret not getting anything 24") but Samsung is supurb.
side by side spec comparison
i would personally never get a TN panel, but it really depends on what you're using it for. i don't think you'll find a decent sized, reliable non-TN for under $400.
also, they're both low res at 1680x1050. for this kind of monitor i'd rather get a 20" at 1600x1200, though i'm a fan of the widescreen so i might wait until 22" 1920x1200 start getting made.
as I said, get 24".

Thats what I have and I like it (bought mine ~6months ago from Circuit City for $220/$225 i think).
but i was upgrading from a 17" ViewSonic flat CRT so.. different picture all together.
Very good monitor. I've got one on my backup computer.
I love the color correction app that comes with it.
Run that app, and you're golden.
I had my 22" lcd for exactly 5 minutes, before I knew I should have got
a 24" one. So I got one of them too. For me it came down to being able to very easily run two web pages side by side. You can do that on the 22", but it gets scrunched up in there.
Btw, is there room in the initial outlay of cash to do $400?
Microcenter has the Acer 24" for $300 after a $100 rebate.
It's a tn panel, but unless you're doing things with photography or something similar, you won't care.
ALL 22" panels are tn panels. And there's been a ton of great ones made.
Fyi, the tn panels are 6 bit, vs the 8bit that most 24" panels are.
They use a compensation scheme on the tn panels that makes up for the difference, and it does work pretty good.
