An example of a video (the accidental sound is not from the icarus): http://www.filehosting.org/file/deta...011_233255.mp4
It's black and white video. With more colors it looks worse.
The switching between the A2 and the standard mode doesn't work very well. I have to restart the device so it forgets completely the A2 mode.
Actually in the standard mode the flashing isn't that bad. There is a small delay between touching the screen and changing the view - I thing this way they made it to flash less, but the small delay is noticeable.

It seems like it is a 3188. Here

-Tried videos in youtube both in normal and A2 mode. Didn't crash and the sound was fine. In normal mode the screen fluctuates between a normal image and a ghosty one all the time (not fast enough to refresh, I guess). With A2 mode it goes much faster but you can't see the images clearly, they seem just like a bunch of shadowy images moving. I was quite impressed by it but there is no way you can watch a video like that.
Another thing is that there is no shortcut to access the volume of the device. Only from the Music app or third apps.

-I tried it with a couple of taking notes apps (SimpleNote and the one that comes with the firmware). I used both a BT keyboard and an wireless keyboard (OTG) and both work fine for taking notes. I type fast so sometimes the cursor gets delayed a little in normal mode but it was Ok.
I have also used an external keyboard to turn pages with Alreader (I miss the keys for turning pages )

Can you try scrolling some text? I have the T62D and it does that so well that I can read while it's scrolling. I can't believe they would remove something like that.

You mean scrolling inside of a pdf, for example? Using which app? I am using Perfect Viewer to read a pdf and a black and white comic and I find the scrolling to be very smooth (at least for an e-ink device).

I do more scrolling in the Calibre Companion app. The text scrolls perfectly and I can read while scrolling. The book covers look like crap which is what I would expect. I tried scrolling on a browser, and I could read easily while scrolling.

I think it should be the same here. When scrolling on my browser, if there are no images you can read the text just fine.

One thing I wold like to say about the screen definition. Even though I think it is great, I find the screen from my Onyx C67ML Carta 2 a little bit better. Fonts seem slightly "crispier" and definition also seems better.
Still, I just love my 8 inches device!

Thanks. I just realized that you said that there is both normal and A2 mode. So it can't do it automatically?

I don't exactly what you mean by "automatically" but I was scrolling without any problems in normal mode (I could read while scrolling down). Although I don't have a T62D to compare it with. If you show us a video of the T62D and its scrolling maybe we can tell you for sure.

On some devices - Onyx for example -, upon touch drag the EPD mode changes from Normal to A2, and back to Normal upon release

On the Onyx Boox Max Carta you can watch (*reasonable*) videos just (*reasonably*) fine, only the refresh seems around 8fps.
I have seen a Dasung clip where video looks even fluid (12fps? 16fps?)

Ok, now I understand. In the browser, it does change from normal to A2 and back to normal (refreshing the screen) after release, just like in my Onyx Reader.

That's true. It all depends on how you understand "reasonably". Maybe saying "no way" was too much. But I can say there is no way I can watch a video like that and enjoy. It's only my opinion though.

The matter is the purpose. My parameter is "university lessons" - check the MIT public courses for example. Although, one of us suggested "older Kurosawa", and it may even work well ; ) Roshomon did not shake much.
