Not under Linux, but we've got an unbelievable quantity of NEC MultiSync
LCD1830s at work running with Matrox G400s under NT4.  And let me tell
you, I am disappointed.  I don't know about other displays, but stay
away from this one.  Ghosting, burn-in (it's like the return of the
bad-old days of CRT burn-in), pixels dropping out.  Yucko.  Stay away.
