The Onyx Boox Mira can be used with the HDMI connection as a primary or secondary display for your PC / MAC and can also screencast all of your content from your smartphone. The main selling point of this product is the 13.3-inch E INK Mobius display and it has a front-lit display. This makes reading, writing, programming and other work-related tasks much easier, because e-paper is super easy on the eyes. Today we’re giving our first look at the Mira and our impressions of industrial design and whether it’s worth buying from the Good e-Reader Store for $ 799.99.
The Onyx Boox Mira has a 13.3 inch E INK Flexible Mobius electronic paper display with 16 gray levels. The resolution is 1650 × 2200 with 207 PPI and has a capacitive touchscreen display. It has white and amber LED lights for a robust lighting experience and the warm lights are perfect for the proverbial candlelight effect. It has 2 buttons and 1 scroll wheel to make navigation easier and provide a full screen update. There is no internal processor, RAM or internal storage. It is a dedicated monitor and not a portable e-book reader or digital note-taking device.
Inside the box there is a USB-C to USB-C cable and a mini HDMI to full HDMI. The back of the Mira is silver and it also comes with a case that has a stand, when you close the case it is held closed with magnets. There are four pre-drilled holes that are used for a VESA mount. There are two rubber stoppers on the bottom and on the sides are the USB-C ports, HDMI ports, and some of the switches. The front of the device has a white frosted frame and a gray e-paper display. The screen is not flush with the frame and is recessed, which ensures a really sharp display as there does not seem to be a layer of glass.
