Expert review by:

LaCie 321

 

Excellent color fidelity; bright; advanced image-adjustment controls; wide viewing angles; plentiful inputs.

Chintzy stand that makes position adjustments difficult; no cable-management system; toll-call tech support with limited hours.

This is one of the best LCDs for people who need a monitor with precise color and shading capabilities.

LaCie 321 LCD Monitor

 

The 321 LCD Monitor from LaCie is a bright, beautiful 21.3-inch LCD aimed at professionals willing to pay the price for accurate color.

Pivots to portrait mode ; height is adjustable

Expensive

Although it ships with a hood to help block glare, this 1,600-by-1,200-pixel monitor sports other features that will catch the eye of color pros-like a 10-bit color lookup table for displaying smooth gradients and hardware color calibration via the...

"Great color and sharpness"

 

I bought the LaCie to soft proof images that I print on a Roland HiFi Jet Pro. I also purchased the Blue Eye Pro calibration device. Together, they provide me with perfectly accurate colors, so the bottom line is that it does the job I intended it to...

dead-on accurate color, cool look, ample inputs

extremely difficult to attach hood, worst documentation of any product I've ever owned, stuck pixel right in the middle of the screen

"Perfection is reality"

 

I think is the best monitor of 21,3" in the market for professionals with an acceptable price.Much more better than eizo, for example.

The best I have ever try

Perhaps the price.But It is good.

"The Best panel around."

 

I just got the New 321 LCD panel form LaCie after drooling over it for 2 months and I can tell you it was worth it. I work for a prepress company and our Lacie CRTs were old and fading. So we ordered 5 panels to replace our current Lacie CRTs. We work

It's a tad expensive, but it's still alot cheaper that a 10bit EIZO LCD panel.

"Exact same monitor as NEC LCD2180UX"

 

Everything good that applies to the excellent NEC-Mitsubish LCD2180UX applies to this monitor, because it is the same monitor.

This is the same monitor as the NEC-Mitsubishi LCD2180UX; it has simply been rebranded by Lacie and colored blue. It also costs hundreds more than the 2180UX, and is backed by Lacie's lately tarnished support reputation. NEC Europe has introduced a produc

Product Specifications

The LaCie 321 Monitor offers a color gamut previously achievable only on CRT monitors. The broad gamut of colors displayed is a wide 72% of the NTSC (National Television System Committee) video standards gamut. With 10-bit gamma correction, the LaCie 321 also provides the finest caliber of gamma control, expressly engineered for serious graphics professionals. Whereas traditional 8-bit gamma allows for only 256 tonal options, 10-bit gamma expands the tonal range to 1024, smoothing color gradation and vastly improving image precision and accuracy. In a side-by-side comparison with other TFTs this panel exhibits superior color clarity most obvious in pure white, pitch black, and saturated color areas. Unprecedented color rendering combined with excellent contrast ratio (500: 1) and brightness (250 cd/m2), and expansive viewing angles (176
