By the way... I am pretty impressed how good the VGA + scanline mode looks on a TFT, especially in NTSC mode and in 40 char mode.
Unfortunately, both my monitors are not perfect yet for use with PAL and 80 chars - but one of them is good enough. But it looks really really amazing in NTSC and 40 chars. I hope I'll find a monitor one day that provides a similar experience in PAL with 80 chars. With a picture like that, I won't miss a CRT anymore:
I just hope I'll find a monitor with the perfect resolution in order to have uniform looking glyphs, both in 40 and 80 mode. And at the moment, in NTSC mode the picture fills the monitor much nicer (in PAL mode, the upper and lower borders are more huge):
EDIT: I guarantee that it looks even better in reality than on those photos
