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.

We had a lightning strike at our church that seems to have affected our Soyo 24 LCD monitors. They no longer pick up the VGA source that we had going before the strike and it now tells us "Unsupported mode" on the screen when in VGA connection mode.

What does "Unsupported mode" mean, and how can we get it operating again?

on your computer changes your monitor settings, your computer may display an ?Unsupported Mode? error. This error is usually on a completely blank screen, which does not allow you to view Windows normally for troubleshooting. You can fix this issue using Windows Safe Mode and by configuring your monitor settings.
