When looking for a monitor for the Expression (1) or MicroVision family of consoles you need a CGA monitor, which is an older video format that is not compatible with the current video formats (VGA_ or (SVGA).
These consoles cannot be upgraded to the new video format, so you will either need to find an old CGA monitor, or a CGA to VGA converter, or if you have certain NEC monitors (see below) you can order an HD15 to DB9 adapter cable PN: 4000B7026. Below are the specs for the video outputs:
Format Refresh Rate Connector
CGA/Digital RGB 54.5 hz Vertical 18.36 Khz Horizontal 9Pin DB-9CGA/Digital
RGB 54.5 hz Vertical 16.0 Khz Horizontal 9Pin DB-9 (MVSN, MVFX)
TTL Monochrome 9Pin DB-9
Composite Monochrome BNC
There are some additional options in getting video output out of the MicroVision and Expression 1 consoles:
