I bought my Multia from DCG. They seem fine and reliable; I had no
problem getting technical information (such as jumper settings for
various resolutions of the video `card') out of them, and my Mulita
shipped with a reasonable tech. manual.

Keep in mind these `cheap' 200s are still getting on twice the
price of a similarly configured Multia. If someone was looking in the
$1000 range, they're not going to get a `real' Alpha.
