Trying to replace a GE GEL-19DV monitor - lets the user switch between a security camera system (using BNC) and connect to a computer using VGA for 1280 x 1024 resolution.

Any recommendation?

You could buy BNC to VGA/DVI/HDMI converter that would give you the possibility to buy any monitor you want.
For example check  this product on Amazon.

thanks, but I have a fear that something wouldn't work...  checking the reviews for the item you list and sure enough:

I see that the product worked for some and for some did not. Actually, VGA to HDMI conversion did not work but majority of reviews say it was working fine.

Anyway, the reviewer that could not get the converter working purchased new one - "Sewell Hammerhead VGA to HDMI Converter, 1080p" that apparently worked fine.

I have seen monitors with BNC support but those monitors were highly specialized equipment with adequately "special" price as well.

Converters' price is relatively small and getting one gives you the possibility to choose from wide range of affordable monitors.

What about these:

1. Converter cables
2. CCTV adapter box
3. Converter switch?
