LaCie 730


We had the LaCie 730 delivered to the Lab as a possible contender for our upgrading feature (page 25)—at $5,000 and change it's certainly a comfortable fit at the high end of the price spectrum. Of course, it wasn't just the price that intrigued us....

Produced the brightest, most vibrant colors of any monitor we have tested

Lacks HDCP; only DVI and USB inputs

If the boss-man purchased this monitor for your workplace, you’d be thrilled, but if you want a multipurpose monitor for photo and video editing as well as high-def movie watching, you’ll likely want to look elsewhere. If you’re willing to step down a...

LaCie 730 review


A quality 30 inch monitor, to bring definition to your desktop from LaCie

Product Specifications

The LaCie 730 Monitor's ground-breaking RGB-LED backlight technology produces purer red, green and blue primaries, resulting in a larger range of vibrant colors previously unattainable by CCFL-based LCD monitors. It covers a remarkable 125% and 123% of the NTSC and Adobe RGB gamuts (CIE 1976), which for the first time enables a lossless color workflow. The LaCie 730's S-PVA-LCD panel technology also delivers deep blacks, high contrast and excellent viewing angles all across its substantial 30-inch diagonal. Its 14-bit gamma correction and ColorKeeper backlight stabilizer offer smooth gradient rendering and stable performance across time. This makes the LaCie 730 Monitor ideal for professional color-critical applications such as soft-proofing. It offers the closest match between captured, displayed and printed colors.
