If refresh rate and ghosting is reasonable for scrolling I could see myself using it. For movies and games I would just turn on second monitor.

Almost all of our GUI software was designed with high refresh rate screens in mind, so it can be clunky to use e-ink ones. If we had GUis based on section changing, instead of scrolling, it wouldn't be a problem. On pcs, using the page up and down keys can be a workaround, but on phones, it's complicated.
