LCD monitors are pretty much common in all homes, it is not often you see someone with a CRT monitor anymore. With LCD's being very common the standard seems to be 19 and 20-inch displays. If you want something larger you can go with 22-inch display, but you are still getting the same resolution so the next step up is a 24-inch display. Soyo who we don't know for making LCD's just sent us their newly released Topaz S 24-inch Widescreen LCD monitor. Let's check it out!

The Topaz S LCD comes in the typical LCD packaging we see these days. On the front there is a picture of the LCD and some specs. The front and back of the package are the same, but there are some more features listed on the side of the package.

Opening up the box we can see that the LCD is well protected by large pieces of Styrofoam and plastic. Getting everything out of the package we have of course the LCD panel, stand, DVI cable, VGA cable, audio cable, power cable, and owner's guide.
