I think the answer is here:
"Sewell claims that these USB-driven monitors have the same quality as
standard DVI monitors at displays of* up to 20-inches*"
And what about all the GPU power? Someone has to handle MPEG decoding in

As I see it, if you want low power silent box in your living room you'll
have to keep a server with cards/USBs somewhere in your basement. If I had a
