to all,

i enjoy using refreshabrialle 18 and vario ultra 20 which are produced by baum. refreshabrailel  18 is great with battery longivity. vari ultra 20 is great with keyboard sa to have chords instead of using space bar. gtreat. but battery, yes. since it is also notetaker, too. both are good.


andrew, for orbit, i was told that orbit doesn't have joystick and doesn't have cursor and doesn't have navigator buttons. is that true??? if not true, i woudl take orbit as if ithey have navignavigator buttons, cursor, and joystick.  please explain to us. thank you!


sincerely,

rich

*Hi, thank you for this reply... I for many years, have not spent money on products such as Braille Displays or Printers and other high priced devices.

I read books and played a bit with the remote I Os side of it.  My only problem is, I just don’t have any idea of the others besides the Vario Ultra 40 of which I had about an hour demo with.  $4,000 scared me especially that there was around $400.00 warranty.  Too much money for uncertainty.  Again, thank you for your reply.  Andy and Shubert*

The Vario Ultra is the braille display I have. After a few months, the Micro USB port broke. After being repaired well enough, two dots have now stopped working. No, I cannot recommend this display.
