Okay, I fixed the link in your original post (I'm a Topic Advisor, I can do that).

Response time is better with the LG and it's lighter. Those are two good things.

However the Dell has a tilt stand and the LG does not. You may find that makes a big difference. The LG has height adjustment, but I've always found a couple of old book can overcome if that feature is missing.

The link to the dell one returns an error, but could be just my location.

The resolution is a bit low for a monitor of that size, but that's what you get for under $200.

If possible I would see if there is one in store you could look at. Other than that compare the features... contrast ratio and brightness are important. Also look at warranty. They are both good brands.

LG has a minor advantage. It's my choice because you have DVI video connector and you will get a digital auto adjustment. Newly branded desktops have VGA connectors as optional these days. They have the same resolution as 22" monitors so you might be disappointed about it. This type of monitors is good for people over 50 because you can read without glasses.

Nick mentioned something I forgot to point out. Connectors... make sure it matches what you have on your computer. I can see the one has DVI, but not obvious in the other and not mentioned in the specs that I could see. You might have to go back to the manufacturer's web site to be sure.
