I use an Iiyama Vision Master monitor on the desktop PC - it's probably
about 5 years old now. Has PC-style VGA input plus BNC connectors, and
can be swapped between the two from the controls on the front. From the
BNC inputs it'll do seperate H/V sync, combined H/V, and sync on green.

I've never used the 19" screens, but this 17" one is of really nice
quality for the age.

I've seen them go for about 40 pounds here (which is probably about
$70?). Doubtless you can get them for a fraction of that price in the US
