CNET Editors Choice Video

LaCie today announces that it received a CNET Editors' Choice award for its LaCie 321 Monitor, a 21-inch LCD designed to meet the color needs of serious graphics professionals. The coveted CNET Editors' Choice award recognizes outstanding computing and electronics products that CNET Editors have determined represent the highest quality, design, and service to users.

CNET Editors' Choice winners are recognized as top products in their respective technology categories, and contribute to the standard by which all future products are judged. A key selection requirement is the difference it makes in the lives of its users, whether through innovative features, exceptional value for the price, remarkable ease of use, or a demonstrable boost to users' productivity.

CNET contributing writer Sean Captain said in the review, "The LaCie 321 is a stunning performer--one of the best LCDs we have seen."

"We are pleased to receive this honor from CNET as their Editors' Choice award has become the hallmark of technology quality and innovation, and its logo is a symbol consumers know and trust," says Daniel Mayer, LaCie Product Manager. "This is an exceptional achievement and we are very proud to be recognized for our dedication and commitment to producing the highest quality products available today."

LaCie 321 Monitor offers a CRT-grade color gamut of 72% of the NTSC (National Television System Committee) video standards gamut. With 10-bit gamma correction, 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. LaCie 321 customers also receive the LaCie blue eye pro automatic hardware calibration software and may optionally purchase the LaCie blue eye calibration sensor. Pricing of the LaCie 321 was recently reduced to $1599. More information can be found at http://www.lacie.com/products/range.htm?id=10016.
