Detailed Exterior Features
SOYO has positioned the interface buttons on the right side of the 24-Inch screen. I suppose this is going to win some people over, and dissatisfy others who want their buttons up front. Ultimately it proves to be a moot point, because the menu interface on the MT-GW-DYLM24D6 is very Spartan.
Much like the menu on this 24-Inch Widescreen LCD Monitor, the underside of the MT-GW-DYLM24D6 offers the power receptacle input, DVI and D-SUB video connections, and a single stereo mini plug.
While I clearly realize this is a product aimed for the middle market, it seems like SOYO may have really missed a larger audience by excluding component video or S-Video connections. I know some of you are wondering why I didn't lump HDMI into that category, and the reason is very simple: several high-end displays still lack the support for HDMI which makes it unreasonable to expect premium features in a budget model.
You may also notice that SOYO has decided against adding USB ports on the 24-Inch MT-GW-DYLM24D6. Certainly there is no confusion as to who this product is aimed at, which would be those consumers just breaking into the widescreen market. Thus far, the DYLM24D6 has been a no-frills widescreen monitor.
Like most everything else sold in America, this SOYO 24-Inch Widescreen LCD Monitor MT-GW-DYLM24D6 is made in the good 'ol ROC. Really though, it makes no difference to me where a product is made, so long as it is produced with attention to quality. This unit arrived without a single problem, and the picture quality was very good with no bleeding or fading at the edges. Our next section will detail some of the real-world testing I performed on the DYLM24D6.
