I currently use the Q Braille, and it does work well with both my iDevices, and my computer. I do have to use the USB connection with JAWS. Bluetooth doesn’t seem to be very good. It does work, but I notice a bit of a lag when I use my display like this. I don’t know if that is JAWS related, or if it is just the way the Bluetooth connectivity works with my Windows PC.

I have the Orbit Reader, Focus 40 5th generation and QBraille. I like the Focus 40 and the QBraille. I had a lot of issues with the Orbit Reader.
Thanks for this. this is really helpful.
I’ll be looking more into these.
Orbit Research will be releasing a 40 cell display very soon. Their 20 cell is quite good. The 40 will cost about $1400.
Freedom Scientific sells their Focus 40 5th jeneration display for around $2800.
Humanware and The American Printing House for the blind have released their Mantis 40 cell display that has a TWERTY Keyboard instead of a braille keyboard for around $2500.
HIMS has the QBraille 40 that I believe is about $3200.
I hope that helps you get started.
