Lee, TFT & LCD are basically one in the same, there's a pretty good explanation [DLMURL="http://www.pantherproducts.co.uk/Articles/Monitors/buying_a_monitor.shtml"]HERE[/DLMURL] & a bit more of a techy explanation HERE

Hope this helps :BLOBBY:

make sure the response time is good, it makes a big difference.

That is a good price for a 19"
scan have some on "today only" starting from £140 for 17" and £180 for 19"

@pipehouse
Response time applies generally to LCD monitors, measuring of the number of frames that can be displayed per second, the better the response time the less ghosting or shadowing.
But beware there are a few ways which you can measure response time, I've got a relisys 19" with a reported 25ms but there is no ghosting.

My advice is check out reveiws of the lcd you fancy
