Summary: Lacie monitors are overprice and they do not stand by the warranty. I paid the extra money to get a professional grade monitor for graphic design. Unfortunately the quality was poor with several bad monitors that I sent back only to receive another problem monitor. Buy elsewhere.
Summary: As a professional Graphic Designer I have always been impressed with the quality of Lacie monitors. I bought the Lacie 324 and paid over a grand expecting a high quality image display. There were many other great monitors out there for half or less the price but I wanted the best. Unfortunately I ended up with the worst quality. I am on the fourth bad monitor that they have sent me and now they refuse to send another even though it is still on warranty.
Summary: I purchased the LaCie 324i monitor in late 2010, and it was a disaster in that it would not consistently power up. After many e-mail exchanges with company technicians, who provided sometimes absurd suggestions like "move the monitor to another location in the room," they finally replaced it. However, I had to pay for the packaging and shipment charges!
