Dasung PaperLike E Ink Monitor Video Reviews


Dasung E Ink Monitor

Earlier this year we first saw the PaperLike E Ink Monitor from Dasung, and now there are several video reviews on YouTube showing it in action.

The PaperLike is a 13.3-inch E Ink monitor that connects to a computer’s USB port to use the device as a secondary display. It uses so little power that the USB port provides all the power it needs to run.

The E Ink screen doesn’t have any light source; it’s like a regular E Ink screen without a frontlight, so it provides a completely different kind of reading experience than typical LCD computer monitors.

The PaperLike features a 13.3-inch screen with a resolution of 1600 x 1200.

The display uses E Ink’s Fina screen technology, which is glass-based, unlike Sony’s 13.3-inch DPT-S1 PDF reader, which uses a flexible plastic-based Mobius screen.

The Dasung PaperLike offers three screen modes for different combinations of details and speed. There’s a manual refresh button to press when the screen gets muddy with images and ghosting.

Several pleasantly-narrated video reviews of the PaperLike monitor turned up on YouTube yesterday. Take a look…

  1. Very cool. If i could see this in a store and compare it to a Samsung Galaxy Tab S/S2 in Grayscale mode that would be great. I have found using the black background pdf readers with grayscale mode on super amoled screens to cut down eye fatigue a lot. There are ways to make a tablet a monitor, but certainly a straight up eink monitor would be preferred. 1k is a bit much, 500 and I would probably impulse buy it.
