Question for people with a modern e-reader

Post by jerryco » Wed Jan 22, 2020 1:37 pm

When does it flash from white to black and back? I'm looking at a few videos and turning pages seems to be without flashing... most of the time? Settings screens seem to flash more?

Can you comment... does your e-reader ever flash the entire screen when you're reading a book?

Hi, yes I did a search on it but this answer is the best yet. Thanks WWBman.
The flashing is simply a product of the way E Ink screens work. ... It used to happen with every page turn, but now E Ink screens can turn many pages without flashing the entire screen, just the text. Over time the clarity of the text starts to degrade, so that's why the full screen refresh is still needed at times.

In the settings of your e-reader you should be able to turn on/off the refresh of each page. This is at least valid for kindle and tolino/rakuten e-readers. If you switch it off, then the screen of your reader will only be refreshed after a certain number of pages, but not each time you flip the page.

In the meantime I got excited over a certain reader, but today I was in the position to hold it and use it. The refresh is too slow for me to be comfortable. Let's wait for reader generation 2030 :wink:
