    TCL is coming out with a very interesting android tablet in April, it uses what they call NXTpaper. Basically it's your typical android tablet but with no backlight, it reuses natural light for its display, so they say. Hopefully this technology will gain a following and be used in more products.

    Update: I LOVE my Remarkable. It's exactly what I was looking for to take notes and journal. I'm going to look into the Blue Box glasses. I'm purchasing a pair of the moisture chamber Ziena glasses as well.

    I have the dasung paperlike and its definitely better on the eyes, however its small and only black and white, so I use it as the second screen for reading/ writing or pages that don't require colour/ video. I think they are releasing a slightly bigger screen this month.

    Alright, just keep in mind the Remarkable is almost purely for note taking.

    As far as monitors go, there’s pretty much just Dasung, and it maxes out at 13.3”. There’s also the Onyx Boox Max, which does note taking and has Android, but I’ve heard mixed opinions on it as a monitor.

    As a sidenote I have an Onyx Boox Note; and e ink most certainly helps with eye strain. To a lesser degree there is BluBlox glasses, the pure red ones, which lets me use my ipad a bit longer. These blow my old Gunnars away.

    I'm guessing the link was for the Dasung Paperlike HD.

Definitely recommend those especially since you're already familiar with EPDs(e-ink screens).
    Are you still using the e ink monitor? How is it going?

    Sadly that hasn't been the case for me. My current job requires fast multitasking which means larger monitors, and can't be done effectively without color-coded text; it's not programming but it's close.

    That said, if your job is say a writer or a lawyer, this thing sure can completely replace conventional monitors.

    About the price tags, I know, right? E-Ink panel tech is owned by a Taiwanese company with no competitors at all. Hope the tech gets adopted by many and leads to market competition.

    Thanks for your response, and great to hear, I just wish they weren't so expensive, hopefully e-ink gets more popular and prices become more reasonable! What about at work? Are you able to use the monitor at work?

    E-ink Monitors for Dry Eye?

    Has anyone tried this? I have thinking about getting e ink monitors for a while since reading my kindle seems much better on my eyes, I have looked at a few and found this one, the reviews seem very positive for the eyes.

    They are pretty expensive but maybe its worth it if it makes a difference. Has anyone tried them or have any other recommendations?
