The specs look decent. Low power consumption, nice resolution and better than normal viewing angles. Just one thing: it doesn't have HDMI or DVI inputs. If you are ok with just the VGA, then great!
Any LCD monitor under $100 is a good deal.
Check for dead/ stuck pixels before you get it off him. Make sure it has less than you can stand.

For £40 more you could get a brand new 20" or 22" 16 x 9 if you are prepared to shop around.

Huh? Nooo! No HDMI/DVI? Nah, I changed my mind. Sorry. I currently own a 17" VGA. What's the point in going 2"s more if its still VGA. I thought at least DVI will pump out good resolutions. (HDMI is not to much of a biggie, although it would have been awesome seen as my new GPU supports HDMI.)

Hmm... Hmm...

Better would Dell 1909IN or something. Its IPS and is much better than the crappy TN's available in the market!

Nah, I'm broke. So no expensive monitors. I own a Dell 17" that came with my old Dimension 5100 PC. Still useing it till today, just thought an upgrade would be some what needed now.

I was hoping to get a 24/26" cheap HDTV from ebay and use that instead. Good idea?

I would say save some and get one later. Monitors are something which you don't often change with every upgrade. So get something which would give you performance and pleasure for a longer.

The closest i could get is this (pricewise) which is nowhere near as good as the flatron.
DVI doesnt give any image benefits over VGA at the moment other than that VGA alows you to use 1:1 pixel mapping (no up-scaling).
If what you've got is below 19" then get it.
