The reflective LCD or RLCD display segment is gaining ground every day, and is even being considered as an alternative to the E Ink display. Now a Chinese company called YouriTaike has announced that it is offering a 32-inch HD RLCD display to offer buyers. The screen with the model number ET315FHBMO-1 has a resolution of 1920 x 1080 pixels and is fixed to last around 50,000 hours, which should be more than 7 years of use if used for 18 hours a day. These are certainly respectable numbers by any means.
Other highlights on the screen include a 16: 9 aspect ratio. The full color screen also has an ultra-low power consumption figure and is based on the Android platform. Without a backlight source, it depends on ambient light to be readable, and the company claims that it is readable in bright sunlight. All this makes the screen also suitable for outdoor use. Meanwhile, the ports that the monitor comes with include an HDMI slot, a network port, and a few USB interfaces.
Other benefits of the RLCD screen include vibrant colors along with high refresh rates while causing the least possible strain on the eyes. It has to do with the screen being reflective in nature, and unlike the traditional LCD or OLED screens, no light falls into your eyes. E Ink screens have typically been monochrome, though recent advances like the Kaleido 3 offer exceptional colors compared to previous efforts. Still, it is nowhere near what the RLCD is capable of. Plus, a low refresh rate happens to be another major spoiler of E Ink monitors.
In the meantime, when you return to the RLCD panels, you need a good light source to get the most out of it. In addition, the screen must be placed at just the right angle to the light source to be perfectly readable. Apart from this, the price can be another issue as the RLCD screen from YouriTaike is priced quite steeply at around $ 1500 to $ 2500.

With a keen interest in technology, I make it a point to stay up to date on the latest developments in technology and gadgets. It includes smartphones or tablet devices, but extends to even artificial intelligence and self-driving cars, the latter being my latest fad. Besides writing, I like watching videos, reading, listening to music or experimenting with different recipes. Film is another aspect that interests me a lot and maybe I will make a film sometime in the future.
