LCD displays with IPS panels typically cost more than their TN counterparts. That said, the $1,250 asking price for LaCie's new 324i display is quite a bit higher than one might expect from a 24" IPS model. But this is no ordinary LCD, at least according to LaCie.
The 324i has been designed with graphics professionals in mind, and it features a 10-bit P-IPS panel that can reproduce a claimed 102% of the NTSC color gamut and 98% of AdobeRGB. Other specifications include a 400 cd/m² luminance rating, a 1000:1 contrast ratio, and a grey-to-grey response time of 6 ms. You won't find any 16:9 love here; the 324i has a 1920x1200 resolution that provides 11% more pixels than a 1080p display.
As one might expect, the 324i has a highly adjustable stand and good selection of inputs, including HDMI, DisplayPort, and DVI. A component input is included alongside RCA audio jacks, and there's also an integrated two-port USB hub. If you're interested, you have at least a week to find a buyer for one of your internal organs. The 324i isn't yet for sale, but it's expected to be available early next month.
