These are all pretty similar, but the HP Envy 23" is the best glossy option while the Eizo EV2336 is the only semi-glossy/grain-free matte coated option, and best monitor over all since it offers the most accurate and vibrant colours (96% sRGB colour space cover vs 87-92% for the AH-IPS & AD-PLS panels aside from the HP 27CW, 25XW and 27XW).

Acer H226HQL: Glossy.  Extrahardware CZ Review (http://extrahardware.cnews.cz/recenze/acer-h226hql-barevne-verny-jemny-levny-leskly-ips-bez-pwm-test)

Acer S236HLtmjj: Glossy.  Review by =DEAD= (http://overclockers.ru/lab/57314/Odin_iz_nemnogih_obzor_i_testirovanie_monitora_Acer_S236HLtmjj.html).  It suffers from obvious overshoot ghosting.

HP Envy 23: Glossy.  Review by =DEAD= (http://overclockers.ru/lab/59100/Luchshe_konkurenta_obzor_i_testirovanie_monitora_HP_Envy_23.html)

HP 23CW: Matte.  There are no reviews, but it is PWM/Flicker free (I tested one in a store).

HP 22w:  Matte 1080p IPS with fairly accurate color presets (sRGB color space coverage amount not listed), average contrast (800:1), a fake frame-less casing with a perceived black depth reducing inner black bezel, HDMI and VGA.

Lenovo T2224dA: Matte. 
Review by Prohardver (https://prohardver.hu/teszt/lenovo_t2224da_monitor_olcso/lenovo_thinkvision_t2224da.html)

Matte 1080p IPS with a perceived black depth increasing matte grey bezel, Displayport, VGA, a 22ms delay, accurate sRGB preset mode which is limited to 86.3% sRGB color space coverage which is below average result for budget IPS/PLS panels, but normal for 21.5-23" panels.

LG 23MP67: Review by Daywalker (http://prohardver.hu/teszt/lg_23mp67_ips_monitor_50000_forint_alatt/bevezeto_kulso.html).

LG 23MP68VQ: Matte.  The LG has low sRGB color space coverage (89%, on par with IPS/PLS made before 2015; inferior to most reviewed newer 1080p IPS/PLS in terms of color accuracy and vibrancy), but is otherwise an excellent monitor.  Review by Trusted Reviews (http://trustedreviews.com/lg-23mp68vq-review).

All of the new LG AH-IPS panels are PWM or Flicker free and usually have good colour presets too.

The Dell P series monitors have a matte black bezel which increases the perceived black depth compared to the frame-less monitors inner black bezel.
