E-ink computer monitor

Hello all

I have no problems reading a kindle but using a computer monitor is tiring and/or migraine-inducing.

Has anybody tried an e-ink computer monitor? ie the same as a kindle screen but much bigger.

They are out there, but expensive.

Wondering if I should make the investment…,

Thanks

Gid

Can you share a link to a good example?

If they were £300 it would be a no brainier, but in the UK they are over £1k for the large ones (25”).

Thanks. It does make me wonder though, what you gain in not being subjected to flashing rasterisation, do you lose a bit because of the artifacting when things are moved or drawn? Does that annoy the brain?

For me, I spend long hours with documentation, so I don’t think that would be an issue. They are no good for graphics or video. But I assume they are as easy in the eye as a kindle for looking at text.

It’s definitely a great option.

I really enjoyed this report on the state of e-ink technology:

Very interesting technology. I wonder whether it would be better for vestibular migraine sufferers?

or anyone with a middle or inner ear condition that gets a bit sensitive.

I haven’t used e ink on a monitor but I do have blue light screen protector on my phone and work laptop which help. And on my Mac I have night mode on permanently with tones down everything and is much more comfortable. not sure if that helps?

That won’t get rid of the flashing rasterisation though (but sure, may help some people).

I do the same in regular monitor - it helps but doesn’t solve the problem completely

I got one!

Will report back when I get settled into it
