E-ink monitor: the best money I have ever spent on electronics

We briefly interrupt the on-flight entertainment for an update on e-ink monitors (see previous posts here and here).  I am happy to report that during the summer my e-ink monitor worked extremely well.  Writing as I am doing now with the sun shining through my window is fantastic.  My entire summer production — including this survey on non-abelian combinatorics — was written exclusively on the e-ink monitor. I don’t think I ever felt so good about a piece of electronics since relentless market pressure forced me to abandon Amiga.

    1. Yes, it is gray scale. Some more info and pictures are on the previous posts linked. If you’d like I can send more — it was very hard or impossible for me to find information online. I don’t feel that the lack of color bothers me. More serious is the so-called “ghosting effect.” Basically, turning a pixel from black to white tends to leave a gray trace or shadow. There is a button to clear all the shadows (you can put it on a shortcut), but it takes a noticeable fraction of a second, so it’s not done automatically. Personally, I essentially never push the button. I found that the shadows don’t impede my reading and writing. In fact, I even watch videos on this monitor even though it’s not recommended.
