BIGME B251 – An All-in-One color E-Ink computer and standalone monitor (crowdfunding)

The BIGME B251 is a 25.3-inch color E-Ink monitor that is also sold as an All-in-One (AIO) PC with a 12th generation Core-i5 processor, 16GB RAM, and a 1TB SSD.

The B251 is based on the same E-ink Kaleido 3 color display with 3200×1800 resolution as the DASUNG E-Ink color monitor, but BIGME included some extra features such as a cold/warm dual front light and voice control. It’s also the first time I’ve seen an AIO PC with an E-Ink display.

This type of monitor will be close to worthless for fast-pace gaming and video gaming due to the slow refresh rate compared to traditional monitor, but it may be great for people having to write code or read text for long hours. BIGME says it provides a paper-like experience and the B251 monitor and AIO PC are suitable for document editing, stock trading, web browsing, and programming.

BIGME vs DASUNGThe price is also cheaper as the B251 is offered for $1,299, at least during the Kickstarter campaign, but the retail price should be $1,999. The All-in-One computer variant starts at $1,899 (the retail price is said to become $2,999 MSRP). Backers should expect their perks to be shipped in December 2023 or Janaury 2024 depending on the selected reward.
