If you are a Linux user editing with Vim in the console, you can put the following in your vimrc to have a nice non-blinking block cursor like in an xterm:
if &term == "linux" set t_ve+=^[[?81;0;112c endif
Note that the ^[ above needs to be typed like this: <CTRL-V> <Esc>.
See Documentation/VGA-softcursor.txt in the kernel sources for details about this escape sequence.
