This has nothing to do with DVI/VGA. DVI/VGA is the cable/connection type (VGA = analogue and signal loss, DVI = digital nice clean signal).

The viewing angle thing depends on the panel type and the quality of the LCD screen. As someone mentioned you want to avoid the TN panel type (cheap but horrible for viewing images and impossible to color manage).

Uh, thanks for this link. I lost it long time ago...

I don't know what's a TN panel. The monitor she has is this: lg flatron w2243s http://www.kauf.ro/administrare/W2243S-PF.jpg

Re: URGENT: VGA vs DVI

I don't know the panel type of that LG monitor, but the LG W2242T-PF has a 22 inch 5 ms TN panel, so it's very possible that one has the same panel type...

Copy/pasted from a website:
* IPS (S-IPS/H-IPS) panels are generally considered the best all around panel type, but they are more expensive and very few are made. High end, expensive.
* VA (S-PVA/MVA) panels offer better color reproduction and viewing angles than TN panels, have slightly worse response times than TN or S-IPS, offer the best contrast ratios, may suffer from color shifting or input lag and have higher availability than S-IPS panels. Mid range, fair price.
* TN panels are very cheap and have the fastest response times, but suffer from inferior color reproduction, contrast ratios and viewing angles. Low end, inexpensive.

Edit:
TN panel type is fine if you want to save money and do not intend to use it for adjusting images etc. It's all up to your usage. Seeing that your GF does image retouching TN is not the panel type for her - also make sure to turn off any built-in dynamic image adjustments (like what is common in new TVs and from the wording on LGs page it might be in this dispaly as well, as that will mess things up for you if you are trying for something color managed).

Also bear in mind that whatever monitor you buy, you cannot effectively color manage without color calibration apparatus. There are a few types available such as the X-Rite EyeOne Display 2, which I use and it is excellent. In other words, with calibration done with this unit, the images I see on my monitor are nearly identical to the ones that come out of my printer.
Even though your GF might not print her work, she could rest assured that her monitor colors are true when done with proper calibration.
