Posted by Carolyn Tusinski on 2023-12-12

Every tradeshow we attend, we get questions about E Ink modules for monitors. We heard you and there are choices!

I’m not one to bury the lead, so let’s start with the Boox Mira Pro – 25” with front light. And, the orientation switches from landscape to portrait – at your command!

Lenovo Dual Display

Bridging the gap between monitor and laptop is the Lenovo ThinkBook Plus Twist. Additionally, it has an E Ink color panel. The “twist” is that the display can be swiveled between the LCD face and the E Ink ePaper face. This is big!

The advantages of the dual display is battery conservation and reducing eyestrain. As we learned in the blue light study from Harvard School of Public Health, ePaper from E Ink is less stressful to our eyes than LCD or LED screens. Click here for a video.
