Welcome to the forums!

I'd spend $250 on a really good 19" before buying a mediocre 21" any day. In my experience the price for a good 21" on eBay starts at $400. Those I've seen for less are models with poor reputations for quality or reliability, or are nearing the end of their useable life.

Thanks um i am also speaking in terms of Australian dollars on ebay.com.au so then those 21 inch monitors must be reali bad? i think they dont use the same connection to the computer as my current monitor it is a fully different one its round sort of? so its not worth it then go for a 19"?
