Last year we saw a couple of 13.3″ E-ink readers. Chinese company Dasung Tech used E Ink’s similarly-sized Fina electronic paper display (EPD) module to create a 1600×1200 USB monitor. It’s meant to be a secondary display and even has a detachable stand. Unfortunately it’s ridiculously expensive.
According to The eBook Reader, Dasung Tech’s display has several display modes, including one that increases the refresh rate for smoother scrolling and cursor movement at the expense of some detail.
Update: Here’s another look at the monitor courtesy of YouTuber nhoffeld’s channel:
The display is already available in China for about $970 (USD). Aside from that crazy price it’s still noticeably slow. Still, its readability and power efficiency could earn it a niche. After about four or five price drops.
