Viewing comics on the UX180P

UK reader Dominik asked about how well suited the UX180P is for viewing comic book pages. I’m glad he included a few links to check out because I probably would’ve ended up at a My Little Pony cartoon site on my own. Imagine my surprise when the first link I clicked on began with something about burning flesh. Hmm. Not exactly a comic about rainbows, I guess.

While the images were loading, they looked very promising. I was certain that viewing comics on the UX, even when in landscape mode, would be an enjoyable experience.


But then the images finished loading.



It turns out, though, that this is just how the pages look, regardless of screen size.

Here’s a screenshot taken from a 15-inch monitor:

Changing the screen orientation made a tremendous difference and is definitely the  way to go.



Thanks for your question, Dominik. Let me know what happens to the burning flesh…
