Well you will never be able to get a 30" monitor for that budget. From memory they cost approx £900+ Your only option would be to get a TV. You should easily be able to get a 720p 37"-40" TV for that price. The 1366 x 720 resolution should be fine for your purposes.

Well, you can get a 30" monitor for £700-800 these days but that's still a long from from your £500 budget and unless your website is designed for it's 2560x1600 resolution you'll probably end up with a lot of white space.

A TV or digital sign/large format screen would be a better choice as their low resolution might be more in keeping with what the webpage was designed for. Which inputs you need depends on the signal source, if it's a desktop PC then you want a digital connection like DVI or HDMI.

For a webpage? I thought s-video only carried low resolution signals.

DVI/HDMI is best if the source has it (some cheap laptops and mini-PCs don't) and VGA would be a reasonable second place but you'd have to make sure the TV accepted it's full resolution through VGA as some are apparently limited to 1024x768.

if you are using svhs cable you really don't know what quality means, try using it for a bit of web browsing then see.

32" 720p TVs are common well within your budget and will be light enough to carry round easily, don't go over board as it will get treated rough doing exhibitons.
One thing to watch if you want to optimize quality is too make sure the display device is capable of matching the monitors "native" resolution or it will not look good, a display like this has to "shout" quality(not price) or its wasted.
