If it works OK, £40 is a steal for a 19" TFT. If it's a mate, can you not borrow it for a while to see how it performs/suits what you use it for? For me these things would matter - needs to be widescreen, has to have a DVI connection & reasonably low response time - 8ms or less.
I've got the 1st monitor lisa02 suggested & it's been excellent for the last 18+ months. However, Scan is doing a better monitor (by the same company?) for £94 delivered - click on the BUY link at click here for the £93.94 '19" Hannspree New York' TFT monitor.
