This one looks nice, PM. click here Although at 20% APR it might be cheaper on a credit card. I have used Novatech many times (not finance though) and they're very good.

If you have a monitor that you are replacing save up the money you would be paying on finance and you'll be able to buy a much better one when you reach your target.
£10 a week for 20 weeks is £200 + the 20% you'd be giving to the finance company gets £240 worth of monitor. The time will fly by and you can stick it to the bankers.

Just to add the Philips 240BW is £240 approx. is 24" and 1920 x 1200 res.

How about getting a 0% credit card such as the Virgin one.Order from where you like and should you be unfortunate to have probs you are also covered by the credit card company.

The Set-up & Operating Charges make such deals very expensive. It'll cost you roughly double the price.

If you can wait and save up you'll get a much better screen for the money.

If you need one urgently it might work to pick one up dirt cheap second hand and save for a real replacement.

(When my ancient CRT died I was wondering whether my next computer will be desktop or laptop, so didn't want to invest in a major new monitor, and got the one I'm working from now from Cashconverters for about £30, and it wasn't the cheapest in the shop.)

Dabs does "buy now pay later" with an arrangement fee, and as long as pay up in good time, you won't incur interest. If you leave it, it's nearly 30% APR, so you'd need to plan ahead and save for it. click here

I'd have a look in a local PC shop and see if they have secondhand monitors for sale. Should see you through until you can afford a new one.
