<div>I think the answer is here:</div>
<div>&quot;Sewell claims that these USB-driven monitors have the same quality as standard DVI monitors at displays of<strong><u> up to 20-inches</u></strong>&quot;</div>
<div>And what about all the GPU power? Someone has to handle MPEG decoding in hardware.</div>

<div>As I see it, if you want low power silent box in your living room you&#39;ll have to keep a server with cards/USBs somewhere in your basement. If I had a basement, that&#39;s exactly that I would do :)</div>
