I'm thinking of buying one but as they are so similar in price and specs I'm not sure which to go for.
These are the specs that differ:

Monitor A:
Brightness: 300cd/m2
Contrast: 500:1
Response time: 16ms

Monitor B:
Brightness: 260 cd/m2
Contrast Ratio: 400:1
Response Time: 14ms

Response time better on B
Brightness and contrast ratio better on A

What do people think? I won't be using it for games but will be using it for photo editing.

there are CRT Monitors at..

£35 for 17"
£45 for 19"

I think these are a bargain and i've ordered a 19inch one. Being CRT also means the hue of the colours doesnt change as you view the screen from different angles and the graphics are sharper. Bad thing is they can be heavy.
