LaCie debuts 21-inch LCD
LaCie today announced a new high-end series of LCD monitors for graphics professionals. The new 21.3-inch utilizes SA-Superfine TFT technology, which it calls "the most advanced LCD panel technology available today." The LaCie 321 Monitor offers a color gamut previously achievable only on CRT monitors, according to the company. The monitor displays 72% of the NTSC video standards gamut and features 10-bit gamma correction for smoother color gradation, DVI/VGA inputs, a high contrast ratio of 500:1 and a brightness of 250 cd/m2 as well as viewing angles of 176-degrees and up to 1600x1200 resolution. It also features height-adjustment, tilt, swivel, and pivot capabilities (requires ATI Radeon 9800) as well as a LaCie monitor hood. It is due in November for $1,700, including a three-warranty.
