DASUNG actually released its first E‑ink monitor a few years back. Unfortunately, it was only available in grayscale. The monitor received generally favorable reviews but failed to capture the public eye because, well, no one wants to watch videos in black and white anymore.
Now, DASUNG is back. And this time, they’re upping the stakes. DASUNG’s full-color E‑ink monitor promises a 23.5‑inch display that’s more efficient, easier on the eyes, and just as fast as standard LED and OLED monitors.
E‑ink isn’t a new development. In fact, it’s been around for more than a decade. If you’ve ever tried out an e‑reader like the Kindle, you’re likely already familiar with the technology.
The primary benefit of E‑ink is that its visuals closely resemble actual paper. That means E‑ink displays are kinder to your eyes — ideal if you spend long hours in front of a screen. Plus, they’re considerably more efficient because they don’t emit light like LED screens.
So, if they’re really so great, why has it taken so long for someone to release an E‑ink monitor?
The problem is that, until now, E‑ink has been a poor choice for the average consumer. Most displays were only available in black and white. Pages were clunky and slow. Large-screen devices were inaccessibly expensive for most. In short, the cons outweighed the pros.
But there’s been a great deal of progress in recent years. Refresh rates have improved, color displays are more common, and prices are becoming increasingly reasonable as technology develops. DASUNG’s new product is a testament to these advancements. If the monitor works as intended, it could be a game-changer for developers and designers that spend long hours in front of a screen meeting deadlines.
If you’d like to try one of DASUNG’s full-color e‑ink monitors, you can preorder one today on Indiegogo. There’s no telling how much it will cost yet. But, considering Dasung’s grayscale monitor currently sells for $1748, we can anticipate the color variant will easily exceed the $2000 mark.
