When planning to read eBooks, the Amazon Kindle eReader is the only device we recommend.
The screen is a pure LCD display without any backlighting, reducing eyestrain caused by staring at a light source.
A phone, tablet, monitor, or anything that emits or reflects light can damage eyes, especially when the device's brightness is much higher than the ambient light in the room.
Even the Kindle Paperwhite always emits light, according to Amazon.
So, if you get headaches after hours of staring at a screen, consider a different device or try lowering the brightness, increase the refresh rate (for monitors), reduce glare (light that reflects off the screen), increase the ambient light in the room, and take more breaks.

- 2K Home Surveillance Camera with Remote Pan/Tilt $71 (expired)
For the next few hours, there's a sale on the Amcrest 2K home surveillance camera.
We recommend this deal for tech savvy people, and those looking for a cheap do-it-yourself home surveillance option.
This camera has remote-control pan & tilt, two-way audio, and night vision, and can be mounted to a ceiling or wall.
We have older versions of this camera in our home (model IP2M-841W), and found it an excellent value for the price.
The day & night video quality are better than Nest, Ring, and popular consumer surveillance brands.
This camera provides a free Amcrest app for live viewing.
Tech savvy people can setup their router to "port forward" the camera for live viewing outside the house.
And, our favorite feature, motion detection can email a snapshot when movement is detected.
There are lots of confusing configuration options, such as tweaking the video quality, night vision settings, and setting up remote live-upload of the video streams to an FTP server.
It's a shame the product documentation is poor and could take some time to figure out, however, that is probably why a feature-full camera is priced at just $71.
Free shipping for Prime subscribers, or everyone gets free shipping with a $25+ order.
