Computer startup, Eve Devices was founded with the idea that smaller boutique outfits would be able to compete with the established major players by minimizing overhead and inefficiencies and crowdsourcing input on desired design and performance specs from campaign backers. After releasing its aluminum-cased Windows 10 2-in-1 tablet, the Eve-V in late 2017 under these guiding principles, the boutique tech company has now unveiled its next crowd-developed product with its all-new Spectrum monitor.
The new 27” screen is the result of Eve calling on more than 4,000 coders, gamers, designers, and other members of the brand’s community to hone in on the ideal monitor. The Spectrum is offered in three specs: a $349 1440p QHD 144Hz HDR400 with a 450 nits peak brightness; a $4898 QHD 240Hz HDR600 with 750 nits (peak), and a $589 Ultra-HD 4K 144Hz version with the same HDR600 and 750 peak nit output. All three variants utilize metal housing, LG panels, and boast a 1ms (98%) response time. FreeSync 2-enabled and G-Sync compatible, the Spectrum also features dual USB Type-C ports, 3 USB Type-A, 1 HDMI, two display ports, and a single USB-B data port. Offered with a supplementary $100 adjustable stand, the Spectrum is available for preorder with shipping scheduled for the third and fourth quarters of 2020.
