Are E-Readers safe. Currently bought a Powerbook Touch Lux 3 e-Reader as it was supposed to be good for my use, and it is my first e-Reader. Now I have tried it some times, but I am feeling something in my head after short use after I turn it one. I supposed it was safe since it was e-ink display With possible to turn off the led light which I did right away when I got it. And wifi is off. Still i think its not 100% safe for me so I have turned it off after some time, and I don't want to comprimise With my Health anymore. What are your experiences or have read about how safe e-Readers are regarding to e-smog? Are there some safe e-Readers on the market for es sufferers? What Equipment can find out if an e-Reader are safe?
My total experience With Electronics is that nothing is predictable out from specifications and former experience. Something might be no problem but another Product from another manufacturer With same function size specs etc may behave "totally" different regarding ES. Just small Construction differences other Electronic parts can do a big difference. What kindle model did you use Marc. And do you know if there are other safe bmodels like kobo etc.
I may try it a couple of times more to just be sure its that bad as it seems to be and than eventually send it back to shop. Pity, e-Readers are fantastic, thousands of books in your hands everywhere..And better to read on than Smartphones but of course which I also cant handle..
The one e-reader I tried was 6 years ago, it was a Kindle 3G (6" Display with E Ink Pearl Technology).
I don't know if there are good models, as that's the only one I've tried.
But you are correct, a seemingly minor difference in a product can make a huge difference. The most recent experience I have with this is with digital cameras -- the Fujifilm X100 is perfectly fine for me, while it's replacement model, the X100s, is terrible.
Well, I've only tried a few laptops over the years, as I primarily use desktop tower computers.
And the laptops I've used are all pretty old these days, although the one I have now, the Lenovo Thinkpad X200, does run Windows 7 (which is about the latest version of Windows I'm interested in, anyway).
A previous laptop I had, the Lenovo Thinkpad X40, was even better (for me), but I think it's too old to be used today (unless you want to run Windows XP with it).
I'm sure that there are many "good ones" out there, maybe others have some suggestions.
What meters did you use to test the kindles? And did you test both magnetic, Electric field, low and high RF etc? Everything e-smog that such a Device can emit. I was feeling bad from a new "high-tech" razer deathadder elite mouse but the trifield meter didnt pick up anything...so I dont fully trust cheap meters. And did you test with the led light on?
I used the Trifield 100xe emf meter. I did not check the Electric field or RF, just the magnetic LF. I figured it wouldn't emit any RF if the wifi is off? I'll have to check Electric field and RF (with a different meter of course). With a name like razer deathadder, I wouldn't expect any better
