My Dasung Paperlike Pro Arrived – What Should I Do With It?
Dasung is a Chinese startup that has so far released three monitors based on a 13.3″ E-ink screen under the brand name, Paperlike.
The third model, the Paperlike Pro, was announced last month. It features the same screen resolution as before (1600 x 1200) but on the upside the Pro works over HDMI and the screen was upgraded to Carta E-ink.
My unit just arrived today. I haven’t had a chance to really test it yet, but I wanted to invite requests.
I can confirm the technical details mentioned above, and I can also add that while the HDMI port is terribly convenient, the frequent crashes are not.
The Pro crashes about every five minutes, forcing me to press the C (for "clear") button to get it working again. (I’m going to ask Dasung why as soon as they wake up tomorrow morning in China.) While the Pro does appear to be a tad faster that its predecessor, that stability issue pretty much cancels out any gains.
It is a nifty toy, nonetheless.
What would you like me to try out?
P.S. There’s no touchscreen, one feature I would have liked to have
