Earlier this year we took a look at Soyo's Topaz S 24-inch display, which we found to be a pretty good consumer display. It was not that flashy and didn't have the extras that many other displays had, but it was affordable. Soyo has sent us their new Pearl Series 24-inch display, which we hope is an improvement over the Topaz S. It features a 1920 x 1200 native resolution, 500 nits brightness, 2ms response time, and a 1000:1 contrast ratio. Let's take a look...


Type: 24.0" color TFT active matrix WUXGA LCD
Optimum Resolution: 1920x1200 Native Resolution
Contrast Ratio: 1000:1
Viewing Angle: 178(H), 178(V)
Light Source: 40,000 hours (typ)
Response Time: 2ms
Brightness: 500 nits (typ)
Display Colors: 16.7 million
Pixel Pitch: 0.270mm
Frequency: Fh: 30 kHz - 80 kHz; Fv: 50 Hz - 75 Hz
Bandwidth: 135MHz


VGA(Connector: 15-pin mini D-sub): Yes
DVI: Yes
Audio: Yes


Net (W x H x D): 22.44 in x 18.23 in x 10.63 in (with Stand)
Gross (W x H x D): 25.59in x 21.61in x 9.45in


The Pearl Series display comes in basically the same packaging as the Topaz S does, just a different picture of the display and specifications. On the side there is a list of specifications.

Opening up the package everything inside is nicely protected by plastic and Styrofoam. Inside we find the display, stand, VGA cable, audio cable, power cable, and the user's guide. I really would have liked to see a DVI cable included since almost all new video cards have dual DVI ports.
