Some 30" monitors, including the Dell 3007 and perhaps the
aforementioned Apple display, have no controls at all besides power.
The Dell has two buttons which somehow signal back to the host machine
to adjust brightness settings but which do nothing on their own or if
the necessary software is not installed (at least on a Windows machine).

I assume this saves money for someone.
