Excellent viewing angle ; Two HDMI ports for attaching home entertainment devices

Quirky menu system

LaCie 324i

 

For about $1,150, the LaCie 324i offers performance and ergonomic design you'd expect from a professional monitor. It includes sRGB and Adobe RGB presets, a black-level control, and color temperature, RGB, and gamma options. The 10-bit panel exhibited...

The LaCie 324i provides accurate color, deep blacks, and a host of ergonomic options.

The LaCie 324i takes some tweaking to minimize its green push. Also, for its price and size it offers less value than other monitors in its class.

The LaCie 324i is a decently priced pro monitor that performs well but unfortunately can't compete in bang-for-buck terms with offerings from Dell and NEC.

LaCie 324 LCD Monitor

 

The high price will scare away most users, but the exceptional performance and video-friendly features could be a winning combination for professionals and enthusiasts.

Exceptional video performance; 1080p and HDCP compatible; Faroudja DCDi processor; 10-bit gamma correction; 178-degree viewing angle; four video inputs; touch-sensitive controls

Too expensive for most users; some may prefer a larger monitor for the 1,920x1,200 resolution

Double your display real estate by adding a second monitor. It's a snap: Here's how

LaCie 324 LCD Monitor (First Look Review)

 

High-quality, moderately priced display also provides precise color calibration.

LaCie is noted for its high-quality displays, and the recently introduced LaCie 324 LCD monitor is no exception. A 24", wide-gamut, 16:10 LCD monitor based on a S-PVA panel, the LaCie 324 features an embedded 10-bit gamma correction mechanism that...

Review: LaCie 324 LCD

 

The LaCie 324 LCD monitor is a 24-inch display targeted at creative pros who demand a large color gamut and color accuracy; but with two HDMI inputs for consumer entertainment electronics and support for picture-in-picture technology, the monitor aims...

Excellent viewing angle ; Two HDMI ports for attaching home entertainment devices

Quirky menu system

The display setup was simple; the 324 comes fully assembled with one DVI port, and when we connected it to our Mac Pro using the included DVI cable, the display was recognized correctly and displayed its native 1,920-by-1,200-pixel resolution...

Lacie 24" 324 Widescreen Analog/Digital LCD Monitor with Software and Hood, Black

 

This monitor is a good average quality monitor for everyday use. However, it is marketed at the professional color market, and is priced that way to boot.

compatibility, easy to setup, features

color shifts, warmup time for stable color, price/performance

LACIE 24IN WS LCD 1920X1200 1000:1

 

I did not buy the LaCie calibrator, which works just on the LaCie, but instead bought an X-rite Eye-One display 2. The X-rite will calibrate all monitors, not just LaCie, so I could use it for my laptop also.

Very quick setup. Crisp, clear image, even in a room with high ambient light

None so far

LACIE 24IN WS LCD 1920X1200 1000:1

 

LaCie Monitor was defective, had to go through PCNations'' return process for over a month. I read a review before I made my purchased that returns were a major pain, that was an understatement. Although I have to give some of the blame to LaCie, they...

Return agent was acceptable, it was just that the return policy ran you through hoops

Slow, screw up return system

LACIE 24IN WS LCD 1920X1200 1000:1

 

Since you only really need change the settings when you''re calibrating, it''s only a pain sometimes. Otherwise, it''s a beautiful monitor.

beautiful monitor. very color accurate. great price

the touch sensitive buttons for the monitor settings are a real pain. They don''t always react the first time you touch them and they are impossible to see when calibrating in a darkened room, and you can''t feel them

LACIE 24IN WS LCD 1920X1200 1000:1

 

One of the final straws that lead me to purchase this monitor was finding that with several of my previous photo edits were not as good as the original image (direct from my DSLR camera) when viewed on my new 20" Dell monitor (Model 2007FP) at work....

Very bright. Vivid color. Excellent contrast. The large 24" size works well for the photo editing that I do as a hobbby

Very expensive. I can''t believe I paid this much for it, but I am secretly happy that I did. Calibration software and hardware should have been included - especially at this price
