Dasung, the Beijing-based manufacturer of e-ink monitors, has announced its plans via Weibo to create the company's largest display yet. The new model is a 25.3-inch e-ink monitor, much larger than Dasung’s existing 10.3-inch e-ink tablet and 13.3-inch portable e-ink display.

The Dasung Paperlike 253 measures 25.3-inches diagonally and has a resolution of 3200 x 1800 (approx. 3K), a pleasing step up from the 13.3-inch model’s 2000 x 1650 (approx. 2K). Like a giant e-reader, content is displayed as a range of greyscale images.

E-ink displays significantly reduce power usage since the panel only draws power when changing the image. This is a selling point for portable devices but is of little advantage against an efficient modern LCD/LED. The real value for a desktop e-ink monitor is in reduced eye strain during a full workday.

Dasung demonstrates the refresh rate using the firm's Turbo Tech by playing a video, which ends up too jittery to be enjoyable. But the demo is impressive and shows that the refresh rate is certainly fast enough for standard office tasks such as replying to emails, writing documentation, using inventory management systems etc. We doubt it would be practical to use for general computing at home, even if you avoided videos, due to potential blurring with scrolling.

Check out the company's promotional video on Weibo for an introduction to the Paperlike 253. While we haven’t previously tested one of Dasung’s monitors, there are examples in the video of office workflows running smoothly. The price is likely to be quite high since the smaller 13.3-inch display is US$1200 on Amazon.

I grew up in a family surrounded by technology, starting with my father loading up games for me on a Commodore 64, and later on a 486. In the late 90's and early 00's I started learning how to tinker with Windows, while also playing around with Linux distributions, both of which gave me an interest for learning how to make software do what you want it to do, and modifying settings that aren't normally user accessible. After this I started building my own computers, and tearing laptops apart, which gave me an insight into hardware and how it works in a complete system. Now keeping up with the latest in hardware and software news is a passion of mine.
