Although I've never seen one, several people have told me that
some 1084 monitors work with either standard, in full colour.
Nobody has ever told me exactly how you know if it works with
both standards, besides the obvious "try it".

A few guys on #c-64 have monitors that work in colour with both
their PAL and NTSC machines.
