Can anyone recommend a low £ high quality monitor?

Can anyone recommend a low priced high quality monitor? Nothing fancy, although they all seem to be fairly thin widescreens now. Im not sure where to look online. I bought this monitor I have here second hand for £50, and its beginning to go, the screen is moving left and right ever so slightly, so i think the tubing is beginning to give up! I would like a reasonable sized screen, this one is 19", for widescreen anything similar or larger.

Obviously Im not going to get anything for £50, and dont want to opt for yet another second hand. Im assuming im looking at £100 or slightly higher for a low priced and fairly thin widescreen monitor of reasonable quality that will last? thanks for any help or items anyone has bought and/or can recommend.

There's also Scan and Dabs:

Few 19in at Scan, probably because prices very similar to 20-22in models.

I forgot to mention that the cheapest I could find myself previously was an Acer 18.5 inch widescreen from argos at £79 :-

I would probably prefer a slightly larger screen- a widescreen at around 19" would prob feel quite small. Im not sure if the base of any widescreen monitor is adjustable or not either - most likely not, but i have a shelf directly underneath my current monitor, so a large monitor (with a high non adjustable base) could be a bad choice on my part, lol. thanks for the suggestions. on a slightly different note-ive never heard of wireless 3d glasses before (bundled with monitors at to give gaming/the screen a 3d like effect)! :)

the Viewsonic 22" at £100 sounds great at, they have quite a few at this price for a similar screen size- from a fair no of manufacturers. theres a 22" Digimate monitor at ebuyer also at just over £100. ive not heard of the majority of these manufacturers before though, so Im not really sure who have good reputations, or even who to avoid, when buying a monitor! I think I will definately go for a 22", as there seems to be far less 19" out there - the prices are very similar to 22" models that it doesnt seem worth going for a smaller screen anyway :) thanks

You need to set your page setting to letter size 81/2” x 14”, as your posting is too wide and being
