Any problems you may encounter due to improper panning, skipping of cells, or
not showing what you want to show are results of the driver interaction between
the brailleui, the drivers for the display and the display.  Getting a new
display won't fix them.

In my opinion, the more Braille cells you can get, to a point, the
better. Then you deal with far less wrap around, and get a better feel
for what the line you are reading looks like.

Here at work, I am spoiled with a 80 Braille cell display.
