While we've seen plenty of pixels so far this year, most are aimed at the consumer's living room or the gamer's desktop. LaCie's taking the snobbish route with its 324 LCD Monitor, however. The 1080p 16:10 display supports 92 percent NTSC gamut, 10-bit gamma correction and embedded Faroudja DCDi and TrueLife tech. Plugs include VGA, DVI and dual HDMI, with HDCP support for kicking back with some HD movies after a long day at the office. There are also three USB 2.0 ports and a headphone jack, and LaCie is tossing in the blue eye pro for automatic hardware color correction. The display should arrive in January for $1050.
