I have been working with Eizo's CG Line since the CG21, after the 210 now the 211 is the monitor to go. It is the best I know, period.
We just got an CG241W for the studio, mainly for editing in Lightroom, but it has awful colors, much to colorful, especially the greens and reds, almost as bad as my old apple cd 23", so I wouldn't recommend that one for serious work, although a lot of shooters would be happy with it.
A friend has the old LaCie 21", it is quite nice but doesn't come close to the CG211, therfore it's a bit cheaper. I don't know about the new LaCie Screens...
So if money is not the problem, I would always recommend the CG211.
