One issue with the VT525 is that you might have to experiment with a
few different LCD monitors to find one that produces an acceptable
display, especially if you want to use 132 column mode.

The last time I tried this with the LCD monitors I happened to have on
hand a ViewSonic VP2000s, a Samsung 931B, and a Dell 1704FPTT all
produced unacceptable results while an older ViewSonic VP150 did
reasonably well.
