Both use the same monitor technology, but LaCie has additional
circuitry for using their proprietary calibration software. If you
are not going to buy a hardware calibration device and use the LaCie
calibration software, the NEC will do the job just as well.
I have been very happy with my LaCie 19" III. The pitch is .24. Some
monitors can go as low as .18, but I have no experience with the
color quality on those. I assume you could care less about Gaming
features, but on the LaCie, modes are indeed selectable, so you would
not have to use it. Being super bright would also shorten the life of
the phosphores I would think.
