Matrox MXO or Blackmagic Intensity Pro?

I just bought the Dell 2408 monitor, which I like thus far, and am looking to use it as both a second computer monitor and also an NTSC preview monitor in conjunction with FCP. Playing via S-video on my DSR-11 looks positively terrible- so what's the best solution? Intensity Pro? Matrox?

Are you just shooting DV? I opened an old DV project in FCP with Black Magic Intensity as the option for View External monitor. Over HDMI with SD footage, it scales to full frame and does not look very good. You're probably best off just to keep using your DSR-11 and to buy an Sony 14" PVM series broadcast monitor if you plan to keep shoot and working with SD. If you're going to HD, then by all means get the Intensity. Here's a little vid http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EytBy1kgFe4

Wouldn't the Firewire output of the DSR-11 look better? How is the upscaling on the Intensity Pro? There's a Black Magic Intensity Pro up on eBay bidding for $1.
