Monitor tilt - return it?

Primarily for nostalgic reasons, I want a 9" video monitor and terminal
keyboard on one of my systems. I've had the Micro-Term ACT-IVa keyboard for
some time, and recently got a 9" monitor to go with it.

When I powered up the monitor and keyboard, I noticed that the display is
slightly twisted (I think the correct term is trapezoid, where the distance
from the top of the left end of the printed line to the top of the screen is
not the same distance from the top right end of the same line to the top of
the screen - the lines run downhill slightly).

My question is - is this a tell-tale sign that indicates a worse problem is
imminent? I don't mind the slight run downhill on the screen, but if that's
a sign of worse to come, I'd just assume return the monitor and get a
different one. There is no adjustment pot that I can see internal or
external for this "twisting" effect.

Thanks in advance!
