I need to know if there are any problems with Lacie monitors. I know of one that buzzes or has a high pitched squeal. Is there problems with these monitors? Does the sound mean it won't last? Sorry I don't know much about it but these apparently are the symptoms. I'm not quite sure of the model name. If anyone could help, I would really appreciate it.

Hmm, monitors aren't generally supposed to making "sqealing" noises... that usually applied to messed up hard drives. I don't know for sure, but I'd stay away from monitors that make noises like that. LaCie is supposed to be a top-end quality company, so that LaCie you saw must have had some issues.

Try switching resolutions-it might just be set to a strange one, with an off frequency...
You could go through the " Recommended" resolutions, then try the "All".

I have an LaCie for three years and have had NO problems whatsoever with it.

It's normal but we don't hear it with every monitor (or television set) because it is quite high in frequency. But make no mistake, every CRT does it.

For some of us, it's because we don't hear that high (everyone is different), and for others it's because the pitch of the sound in that particular unit is higher than human hearing.

My JVC TV is fairly audible to me but others don't hear it. It is related to the frequency of the video settings and usually will change if you alter the refresh rate.

i agree with gordguide. if it's the same sound you hear when you fire up your tv then you have nothing to worry about.

lacie monitors are used quite extensively in prepress environments and are marketed as such. they have a good reputation.
