Proper scanline emulation can make it look almost 100% like a real CRT, including the glow and curvature of the screen.

The reason the black lines are there is because most games are running non-interlaced modes while the line thickness on the screen was designed for interlaced screens which had twice as many lines. On low res displays like the 1084, the scanlines would not be as pronounced as they were on high res displays - typically multi-sync ones with smaller dot pitch.
