I searched for a good solution after I had an eye issue that prohibited normal monitor use. After a lot of research, I found these. I am very happy with the quality and performance of these monitors. I use REVIT architectural software, and these monitors work well, since it is primarily a black/white/grayscale canvas that you work in. These are also great for using WORD & OUTLOOK for documents & email.
I try not to use the backlight feature, but I am glad that I have the option to use it on occasion. I use the warmer tone, and it is helpful in some of my ambient light settings. The monitor actually looks best with a brightly lit natural light room with indirect sunlight.
The touchscreen is a nice feature, and it works well. I find that I seldom use it with the work that I do, since I am used to primarily using a mouse for input.
I attached 2 of these monitors to a portable stand, also purchased on Amazon. I also purchased quick release VESA mounts that allow me to remove the monitors and use them in other situations with my laptop where portability is important. With my Microsoft Surface Book 3, and the Surface docking equipment, I can drive these 2 monitors even with my laptop. (I use 2 USB-C to HDMI adaptors)
THE MAIN BENEFIT: The reduction in eyestrain is huge! I did not realize how tiring the old monitors that I was using was making my eyes. When my eye issues are corrected, I intend to continue to utilize these monitors for as much work as I can.
I believe e-ink and similar technologies will become more & more popular, especially as color products are being developed. DASUNG has put together a nice monitor design with the intuitive display control buttons on the monitor. I have likewise been very pleased with the US reseller of DASUNG products, SOL COMPUTER.
I'd gotten to the point where I couldn't tolerate a standard monitor for more than an hour, and was desperate to find something that wouldn't bother my eyes/brain/attitude while writing. This monitor was definitely the answer. I am very happy with it.
I had a problem with it when I first plugged it in. After a minute the monitor would go all fuzzy. Neither I nor the seller could troubleshoot it over the phone, so I returned the monitor and got a brand new replacement. I had the same issue, so it was definitely something on my end, not due to the monitor itself. I have a Lenovo ThinkPad with two USB ports. It turns out that one is an "always on" port, meaning that you can charge another device through it while the computer is powered down. I've never done that, nor did I even know it was a feature, but that seemed to be the reason it was interfering with the signal. I tried plugging the monitor into the other USB port and it has worked perfectly ever since. I wish I could've figured that out to begin with, but I am so grateful and impressed that Chris, with Sol Computers--the seller--was willing to accept the return of a new working monitor, reimburse me for shipping, and replace it with another new one in hopes that it would solve my problem. Don't hesitate to buy from him.
It does what I want, and I have no complaints about it's functionality, but if it had bluetooth capability, it would be perfect. It's so lightweight as it is.
I am a computer science student and spend a significant amount of time on the computer. My eyes were so dried out last semester that I couldn't use the computer for several weeks. I had nausea, headaches, and blurry vision. Blue light filtering glasses helped slightly but not enough.
Wow this monitor makes a huge difference for me. I can spend hours on end on this computer without hurting my eyes. There are some cons though. It's expensive, it's grayscale (no color), the refresh rate is (surprisingly good but) not like a regular LCD screen, and the monitor is small. If you are suffering from dry eyes though, this is the best product you can buy currently imo. The screen is like reading from paper.
The tech for this product is currently patented so there aren't any competitors that can drive the price down. As of this writing (Dec 2020), I believe this is the only monitor on the market featuring this type of screen. If they come out with a larger and improved monitors over the next few years, I will be buying. Worth it!
Yes, this product is expensive. It is its the most significant negative attribute. However, it is worth it considering the quality of the item and the health benefits it provides. It is top of the line, advanced e-ink technology. It seems that no other product currently on the market challenges it. It can replace most activities that you would use with your conventional monitor. I would not watch a blockbuster movie on it, but a standard Youtube video while working is fine. If I had the authority, I would purchase one of these monitors for every worker in the office. If you spend three or more hours per day looking at a computer screen, such as writing, coding, or simply reading, this items will improve your quality of life and productivity. The innovators behind this item have earned the market's reward.
In time, the products developed from this monitor will be less expensive. The market for this caliber of item across the globe is largely untapped. Further innovation and increased scale will reduce the cost. I simply did not want to wait considering the relief from eye strain that the item offered. Even though it was a big purchase, I am glad that I did so.
If you are in a position to order the item, I recommend it. It fulfilled my expectations.
While this definitely is not for everyone, if you are light sensitive, this is a life saver. Its not especially well documented, so plan to spend some time listening to YouTube videos to figure out the configurations that will work best for you. At a minimum, turning off color filters like Flux or Night Shift, reducing motion/animation and switching either to grayscale or a high contrast setting in your OS helps. Many useful display setting options to play with for this monitor are under Accessibility. Expect to experiment with settings. I also ended up buying the Belkin HDMI to mini display port and a USB hub to get this to work with my Mac laptop. Didnt need anything extra to make it work with my work Windows laptop, and with the USB hub its pretty quick to switch between the two. It comes with hardware needed to attach it to a standard monitor arm plate and the included screw on prop arm works way better than I expected. I chose this model for the front light (and SOL didnt stock the light-only version at the time), but I ended up using the touch screen quite a bit in Windows to find elements of webpages that werent visible in grayscale. Though the cords for it are bulky, and I had to make it a case, I actually carry this around a fair bit and turn my laptop brightness to zero, using the laptop as conveniently compact keyboard and touch pad. Its made a huge difference - I can now do my data analyst job without making my headaches worse. Id eventually like to have more than one for the extra screen real estate but it turns out Im willing to do a whole lot of window moving and scrolling to avoid backlit screens. Bottom line: SOL has a great return policy - if you think you have screen related headaches, give it a shot!
Side note: I use this to watch talking head videos and tech classes on video. As long as you dont mind hitting the C button occasionally (and I dont, I find clearing the ghosting on demand super satisfying), and changing up the settings to favor speed, it works just fine to catch facial expressions and follow screen-caps and power point style presentations.
