The LaCie 324 is a pretty expensive 24-inch LCD monitor at $1,050. But if you can afford it, it makes for a pretty good monitor for photographers and other creative professionals in graphic design and publishing.
Consider its features: The new LaCie 324 is equipped with an industry-leading S-PVA panel, which offers superb colors thanks to its wide 92 percent NTSC gamut. It also embeds a 10-bit gamma correction mechanism that minimizes banding and ensures color gradients are smoothly rendered. With its 16:10 wide-screen format, this monitor can showcase two letter-size (A4) pages side by side with room to spare for palettes and toolbars.
And then thereâ€™s its Faroudja DCDi and TrueLife video technologies which supports high definition video up to, and including, 1080p sources.
The LaCie 324 accepts four simultaneously connected computers or video sources through its VGA, DVI and two HDMI ports, and supports HDCP for Blu-Ray and HD DVD compatibility. Two of these sources can be simultaneously viewed in picture-in-picture mode.
