Does the Iliad also suffer from ghosting of previous page?

I have just joined the forum and am looking for some input on the Iliad.

I noticed that the Sony reader exhibits some level of ghosting from the previous page and started a thread on that forum ...

Is this something to be expected on the Iliad as well? I have not had a chance to see this reader as yet, so would appreciate some feedback from current owners.

Yup. Run a search on the iLiad forum for "ghosting" if you want the details.

And welcome to MobileRead!

There is ghosting, but its so slight that its very hard to see... It occurred more a few updates and now I can't see it unless I'm moving from a screen that has been very dark (is 100%) black to white... There's some ghosting with panning, but then again its not very noticable...

TBH, its not an issue...

To put it into some sort of perspective, having seen both the Reader and a iLiad screens in action, the ghosting seems comprable between the two to me.

Having a current iLiad and a current Sony the ghosting seems worse to me on the Sony.

But I can certainly make the ghosting much worse on the iLiad and speed up the screen re-draws at the same time. Each maker had to make the same call of how much ghosting vs screen refresh speed. Each can still change their mind by issuing a firmware update.

I'm glad you weighed in, scotty -- I was hoping someone who had current access to both would as my iLiad recollections are a bit stale.
