The Eve Spectrum series is a range of crowd-designed monitors which have been created with the input of PC gamers in mind, ensuring that range delivers the specifications and features that the gaming market desires. On this high-end, these screens can offer 1440p resolutions at 240Hz, a feature which appears to be a first for an IPS gaming monitor. 

Today Eve, a Finnish start-up, has revealed three monitors that are due to release in 2020, all of which use LG's 1ms IPS gaming monitor panels. These screens also deliver HDR support, and support screen refresh rates of 144Hz (or over) with both G-Sync Compatability and a FreeSync Premium Pro certifications. 

Eve's three Spectrum monitors are defined by their resolution, refresh rate and HDR support, with Eve releasing each of these displays with VESA mount compatibility, and without stands, allowing users to save $99/€99 if they already own a VESA compatible monitor arm. All of these screens are 27 inches in size. 

The first of these three Spectrum displays is their $349/€349 model, which features a resolution of 2560x1440, a refresh rate of 144Hz, DisplayHDR400 certification, and an adaptive-Sync range of 48-144Hz. This model is known as the Eve Spectrum QHD 144Hz.

Above the QHD 144Hz model is the QHD 240Hz, which ups the screen's refresh rate to 240Hz with a variable refresh rate (VRR) range of 48-240Hz, and the screen's HDR rating to DisplayHDR600. This screen uses an LG IPS panel and can deliver typical brightness levels as high as 650 nits and peak brightness levels as high as 750 nits. The screen also supports 10-bit colour (8-bit + A-FRC). 

Those who want a sharper image can opt for Eve's Spectre 4K 144Hz, which will cost $599/€599 and deliver gamers a VRR range of 48Hz to 144Hz. The screen also meets VESA's DisplayHDR600 standard and offers the same peak and typical brightness levels as the Eve Spectrum QHD 144Hz. 

All of Eve's Spectrum screens support 98% coverage of the DCI-P3 colour space and 100% of the sRGB colour space. These monitors also feature a "low-haze 20% anti-glare coating. All models also feature dual DisplayPort 1.4 inputs, a USB Type-C input (DisplayPort 1.4 Alternative video input) and a single HDMI 2.0 input.
 
Eve plans to ship its Spectrum QHD 144Hz in Q3 of this year, with the company's Spectrum QHD 240Hz and 4K 144Hz models arriving a little later in Q4 2020. 
 
I think the prices for these monitors are very good provided the quality is also good. It also looks like some webstores are offering pre-orders.

    If all 3 are LG IPS panels, these prices look delicious, presuming the middle screen before the 4K is less than the 4K.  I might take a dab at the 4K down the road if there is no other competition.  Love, love and love it!

    New era of PC gaming has began hippies😼

    Those who abuse power, are nothing but scumbags!
     The challenge of power is how to use it and not abuse it. When you abuse it, it reverses on you and it hurts you.The abuse of power that seems to create the most unhappiness is when a person uses personal power to get ahead without regards to the welfare of others, people are obsessed with it. You can take a nice person and turn them into a slob, into an insane being, craving power, destroying anything that stands in their way.

    I would buy if it were not achieved using 8bit+A-FRC.

    What in the world is a "crowd-designed" monitor? Sounds like word salad.

    Sigh. The LG 1ms IPS is a gimmick imo. The 1ms 'mode' is unusable for gaming (unless you enjoy inverse ghosting). If you want to use these panels for gaming, you have to use their 'standard' refresh mode, which is 5ms, just like all the other gaming IPS panels that have been around for several years. This is not anything special, just a new gimmick to get suckers to buy it. It also only has G-Sync compatibility, which does not actually use NVidia's G-Sync hardware at all.. it just means you can plug them into a NVidia card - yes, another misleading 'feature'. 'HDR support' is also extremely misleading.
     
    Still, if they have decent quality control, a 144Hz 1440p 27" for $350 is ok I guess, just don't believe you're getting anything special for it. Considering all the misleading 'features', I'd avoid them.

    I'm a bit skeptical about the company/venture myself. There's a lively subreddit that exists solely for people who have ordered the EVE V Laptop, but have yet to receive anything since 2017.(r/evev)

    Orly?!  That's not good.  Sometimes it's too good to be true I guess.

    Wow. Thanks for the warning. Just skimmed over some of that subreddit, that's not looking very good.

    Ouch. I put money into a crowd funding item once. It was a GPS tracking device. I received the item 2 years after I was supposed to get it, and it never worked. I will never put money into something like that again.
