Plenty of graphics and scientific evidence included. Very recommended read. You can also check the resources page on this site that includes a list of recommended (unported) monitors for different budget ranges:

Unported have better bass response, keeps the cone tighter in its movements, it's a smoother motion more accurate movement. Focal Shapes are unported though have a kind of Diaphragm type thing on the side. Not sure of any others in that price range.
