I don't think they've ever sold a square (1:1) monitor.     Before the days of widescreen aspect ratio displays, most monitors were either 4:3 or 5:4.

You can still get a fair selection of 19" 5:4 displays, but I'm not aware of any larger ones.   I know they don't ship to you, but here's an example of what Newegg has available in these:

Does Amazon UK ship to you?   If so, this would work:

Amazon France offers free shipping to Belgium (only books, shoes or apparel): http://www.amazon.fr/gp/help/customer/display.html/ref=hp_897504_hie_lafsn/?nodeId=897504

And the 4:3 display is available: http://www.amazon.fr/Hanns-G-HX193DPB-Ecran-48-3-milliseconds/dp/B00AK1TAY6/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1387622220&sr=8-1&keywords=HX193DPB

You did not mention why you wanted this type of monitor and I am just going to throw out there that even if you used a 16:9 screen, you can still choose a resolution from your video card that is a 4:3 format and it will display fine. You will have some unused space on the left and right of the working space. If 16:9 or 19:10 screens are readily available and cheaper than 4:3 screens, there you go, and you are prepared to move up if you want/need to without replacement.

ok guys - here some answers:
garycase, as usual your selection is superb
pcelba -  your link points to the same as Garycase in UK; but thanks ayway, and the fujutsi looks fine too; ans for the bigger sizes, the Nec is a winner

techodweeb - thanks - but that is just what i want to avoid; i have space constrictions and want more on a page to avoid vertical scrolling

i'll wai a couple of days before closing
 - can i ask how you found these?  what search terms?
pcelbaCommented:
Yes, the link was intended to the same hardware but in Amazon subsidiary closer to you. :-)  I have to respect garycase is the first who answered your question.

BTW, to avoid scrolling you may turn the display by 90°. In such case 16:9 is even better chice. But I fully understand your construction requirements.
Gary CaseRetiredCommented:
nobus => given that you're trying to avoid vertical scrolling while still fitting in a limited space, you may ... if the height isn't an issue ... want to consider using a 16:9 display rotated to the vertical position ... as suggested above (in essence this is now a 9:16 display).    Many high-end medical imaging display systems use this configuration ... all you need is a display that can be rotated.
nobusAuthor Commented:
garycase; the problem is i have  about 55-56 cm height available, and there is no room for a wide screen on my "repair " table, that's why i'm looking for a rather square monitor.
if no more suggestions come in, i'll close this in the coming days
Gary CaseRetiredCommented:
Clearly if there's not adequate height you need to simply use a standard 5:4 display.\
pcelbaCommented:
Wow!  "screen on my repair table"... It sounds very interesting.

Could you please post some picture?

It is long time ago I've been working on such a low level hardware stuff... I simply don't have time to wire something because I am programming the most of the time today.
nobusAuthor Commented:
pcelba - what do you mean? what would you like to see?
it's just an ordinary screen that went kaput - i'm trying to repair it, and am informing me on a new one - in case i can't fix it
pcelbaCommented:
OK, it was just my imagination:  Some specialized repair desk for electronic devices where the screen is used for many purposes like oscilloscope, integrated PC, etc.

This page contains a picture where devices are not integrated together: http://www.astrosurf.com/luxorion/reports-buyoversea.htm

...ah  that...i had hoped for a little less than 1000$
more in the 100$ range -  and of course, even better performance  :-)
