I am getting a second monitor to create a dual screen setup. I have the HP w1907v but it is discontinued. I have found this monitor. Will they be near enough the same in quality and resolution ect?

Assuming that they both use the same video adapter type, such as DVI or vga, and your video adapter supports two of those types of displays, then you should be "golden". I use two slightly different monitors on my desktop (24", 1920x1200, DVI w/ nVidia 8800GT adapter), and except that the colors are just a little different (adjustment gets them close, but not exactly the same - a typical issue actually, even if the displays are "identical"), they work great!

That said, if your adapter supports 2 monitors, but one is DVI and the other is VGA, then as long as the monitors each support one of each, then that should work also. DVI is preferable to VGA from a performance and usability perspective.
