A word of caution, we bought two 19" Diamond Views and they have been
less than impressive. When they function they are very good. However they
have the horizontal scan of death. What starts as a 'twitch' in the LHS
of the display (ie it jumps inward an inch and back in ~0.5sec) rapidly
becomes a complete lack of picture. Repeated returns to Mitsubishi have
*not* fixed the problem. FWIW it seems to be stable at 800x600. :-(

It may be a bad batch, but caveat emptor.
