Googled it, very cool.
Looks like HDMI to me, not DVI.
Surprised you're looking at is as a server replacement. External hard
drives on a server? SAN? Dual gigabit ethernet means you could
isolate SAN from the rest of the network. Hmmm.
My wife and I are pretty happy with our 1920 x something TV/monitor
Bought the original at CostCo but had a bad remote control sensor.
Bought another at the store in SF after CostCo gave us money back (no
exchange)- they matched price.
Anyway, the reason I mention it is that it's has two HDMI inputs as
well as VGA and the legacy video inputs. 7 inputs in all. And has
high rez and many inputs for < $300.
One cool think about HDMI vs DVI and VGA is HDMI includes audio as
well as video.
I can pull up the specifics if you (or others) care.
