Where are you located?
Would you like some of the REAL monitors?  They will do all sorts of 
bizarre artifacts that would be hard to emulate.  They are also perfect 
matches to the size weight, power draw, smell, reliability (or lack 
thereof), resolution (or lack thereof), etc.
Nothing truly duplicates the experience without drifting tuning, picky 
horizontal hold, a lttle flickering, etc.
I've long ago gotten rid of most of them, but there are always more 
breeding in the cracks of the woodwork.
