Eve Crowd-Develops the Spectrum Gaming Monitor

Eve have announced their new crowd-developed gaming monitor, the Eve Spectrum. It’s a stylish 27″ affair coming in three slightly different models with varying resolutions, refresh rates and brightness levels. Behind the Spectrum is the team that produced the successful Eve V 2-in-1 Windows portable device which broke Indiegogo records on launch.

Using their previous experience of developing the V, Eve have tapped into the gaming community and asked gamers what they want from a gaming monitor. Several thousand of them responded, providing a spec list that should satisfy enough gaming fans to make them put down a deposit pronto.

The Spectrum models use LG IPS panels for the screens but they come in three different configurations.

  1. 144 Hz refresh, 2560×1440 resolution, HDR400
    and 450 nits peak brightness.
  2. 240 Hz refresh, 2560×1440 resolution, HDR600
    and 750 nits peak brightness
  3. 144 Hz refresh, 3840×2160 resolution, HDR600
    and 750 nits peak brightness

All the screens have 1 ms response times and 98% DC-IP3 colour gamut. The screens rotate between landscape and portrait orientations. Full specs are here.

In addition to the glass, the Spectrum monitor double-up as communications hub with a plethora of ports, including two one HDMI, two DisplayPort sockets, two USB C ports (one with video), three USB Type A ports, a USB-B port for data back to the PC and a 3.5 mm audio jack.

People might recall that the original Eve V was a highly successful Indiegogo launch, raising 1300% of its target in just four days, setting a European crowdfunding record on the platform. As is often the case with such oversubscription, Eve did struggle to deliver but got there in the end offering a decent Surface Pro competitor.

This time, rather than going down the traditional crowdfunding route, Eve are using pre-orders, with a deposit of $100 securing a Spectrum monitor with the balance required once the unit is ready to ship. Deliveries are expected in Q3/Q4 2020.

The models will start at US$349, US$489 and US$589 (with the same pricing in euros) for the first 500 units. After that, prices will increase “corresponding to the ordered quantity”. Following Apple’s lead, the stand is extra but at a much more reasonable price of $99. As I write, I note that some prices have gone up already so get in quick!
