+ - Where are the E-Ink Dashboards? 1

fsck! writes "My office recently installed a pair of huge plasma TVs to display some metrics and graphs. They only update every 15 minutes or so, and I couldn't help but wonder, why can't this be E-Ink? I searched all over the place but couldn't find anything bigger than 9.5" (Amazon's Kindle DX). I want a >30" E-Ink picture frame with USB or WiFi. Can the Slashdot community find anything greener than these energy sucking plasma TVs that seem to be everywhere?"

Where are the E-Ink Dashboards?

  • For energy efficiency, LCD, LCD with LED backlight, or LED should be much better than plasma.

    I know that when we installed the plasma display at the office, it was selected because it was the brand manufactured by the client we were trying to impress at the time, and the plasma was substantially less expensive for the size than LED. We deemed the energy efficiency hit to be negligible, since our application only runs that display about 1 hour a week.
