where to get a mini monitor?

I have a RAID drive that occasionally but very rarely needs to have a monitor connected temporarily to accomplish some technician-guided maintenance. Is there such a thing as a small (maybe 8") b/w monitor that I could get for this purpose? I couldn't seem to find anything shopping around on the web and thought maybe this would be something that a "traveling repairman" doing outside calls would use. The position of the RAID and it's connectors make it difficult to move in a regular size monitor from somewhere else and hook it up and, besides, it's just a hassle.

    The monitor that leew sent in the link would work great for your needs.

    Would another option be to set up Remote Desktop on the server and log in from your other computer?

    The monitors look good but I'm checking into the Remote Desktop suggestion. I'll get back.

    Although Remote Desktop would be a preferred solution, as it turns out, because of the setup on the RAID (of which I am really clueless) Remote Desktop and/or VPN is not an option, therefore I will accept the monitor answer as the right one. Thanks to both of you for your help.
