The  pisser is the crap video cards that support them directly. I have 2 
on my work machine, and the Oxygen cards are both expensive and 
under-powered. The problem is the DVI they use isn't the 'standard' DVI. 
You can buy a multi-link adapter to use them with a regular video card, 
but last time I checked, that adapter was as much as the monitors on ebay.
