Seeking advice re: LCD monitor purchase

I am looking to buy a new 19" LCD monitor for my office. My concern is that my office is VERY bright, with both flourescent lighting above and natural sunlight coming in through windows on two sides.
I presume that I should look for a monitor with big "contrast" and "brightness" values. Is that true? Considering my circumstances, does anyone have any recommendations?
Thank you kindly.

Planar. They have better response time than many and also have a 3 year 2 day replacement warranty. My son-in-law is in IT with a software company and he installed several of the Planars in April or May. He convinced me to buy one with my new PC last month and I am very happy with it.
