One of the famous names in E ink devices, Onyx BOOX, has introduced E ink secondary screens under ‘Mira’ series. These are special screens for your comfort and convenience. There are two different displays, the 13.3” Mira and the 25.3” Mira Pro.
During this work-from-home culture, we are spending more time than ever time in front of our computers. E ink displays can reduce eye strain significantly and you can work tirelessly.
So whether you’re working or studying on your computer a lot, you may want to consider investing in a secondary screen that will save you from unnecessary tiredness and headaches.
The only major difference between the two devices is just the screen size; the rest features are pretty much the same in both Mira and Mira Pro.
The problem with LCD or LED monitors is that they are backlit, which emits lights which causes strain on the eyes. Whereas E ink displays aren’t backlit. They pack dark pigments which work as E ink and offers a viewing experience of a natural paper.
Another problem with LCD and LED screens is that they produce blue light along with high refresh rates. This is eliminated in E ink displays. This also means Mira and Mira Pro have a lower refresh rate and your working might get lagged.
Well, Onyx BOOX has brought its software to install so that you can work with the utmost smoothness. However, the final refresh rate of Mira and Mira Pro will depend upon CPU of the computer.
Also, Mira and Mira Pro has buttons which refreshes the screen immediately to represent the latest output to avoid ghosting when scrolling faster. Mira has a square button on the coroner whereas Mira Pro has a side refresh button.
