     I went looking for monospaced fonts some time ago and found this,
titled "Robert Crooks' Fixed-Width Fonts Page":

I don't think this has been updated recently, and many fonts are either not 
TrueType or 
not free, but it's a good starting point.  Googling for the title of this page 
got me 
(in 2 hops) to

which has sample screenshots and reviews and appears to be much more recent.

     I settled some time ago on a highly idiosyncratic combination of colors 
around amber on black (which I find the least stressful arrangement on CRTs) 
along with 
FixedSys, Terminal, Lucida Console and Courier New, two of which ain't TrueType 
- and 
Terminal (aka 8514oemt.fo_, or Terminal Font for the IBM 8514) isn't 
ISO-8859-1, so it 
requires some trickery to get it displayed in Emacs 21.1.
