My Iiyama 21" CRT took two people to position it on an IKEA "Sten" unit shelf. Those were the "garage" unit shelves advertised stacked with things like car batteries or car wheels. When the CRT was eventually given away the shelf had a permanent downward bow in it. It was replaced by an equivalent LCD about 15 years ago - which was incredibly light but noticeably didn't have quite such good image contrast/quality. Quite how that CRT would compare to modern IPS screens is a moot point.
