Finding a 19" non-widescreen shouldn't be a problem but from my (quick) 
search it gets considerably harder to find a non-widescreen that's 
larger. I'd recommend this Samsung model 
http://www.ebuyer.com/product/145478 as it's 19", non-widescreen and has 
a good contrast ratio. It's also a well known brand, but if you want to 
save some pennies I've had no trouble with cheap brands (bought 
digimate, yuraku and cibox monitors for myself and friends) YMMV.
