Today is THE day. We are excited to finally be able to share the news you have been craving:
Eve Spectrum GLOSSY is officially HERE!
For everyone new to our crowd-development party, here is a little refresher on how the first-ever glossy gaming monitor was born:
The glossy coating is something we are very familiar with - from TVs and mobile devices. However, it has not been applied to gaming monitors yet. The implementation requires recalibrations of the production line that gaming manufacturers are seemingly not ready to commit to. The beauty of our crowd development, though, is in that provided there is enough demand for it, team Eve is here to make it happen. And we did. We got the amazing opportunity to work on an exclusive glossy project with our display manufacturing partner, LG Displays. In December, we probed your interest in a glossy screen and got your strong support to make it. In February, we officially confirmed that we will be offering glossy coating variants to our Spectrum line-up.
We sent glossy samples to TFT Central and Dave2D who independently reviewed and shared their expert feedback. Based on their test and measurements, we arrived at two main benefits that a glossy screen offers you as a user.
The glossy polarizer ensures a crisper image and that extra pop of color we all want (think more vibrant colors and deeper blacks!)
The reduced haze and clearer image of the glossy coating allow for sharper text and an overall better image quality. This will enable you to enjoy each and every small detail during your game play.
Now, it is time to spill the latest details around the product launch so you can get the glossy Spectrum on your desks.
Eve Spectrum Glossy utilizes the award-winning base of our original Spectrum and comes as an add-on you can select during your checkout process. Please note the glossy coating will come at an additional cost of 99 USD which corresponds to the additional labor associated with its production. That means that Eve Spectrum 4K Glossy will retail for 898 USD (without the stand).
We are working to get the coveted monitors to your desks as soon as possible. Since Eve Spectrum 4K is a successfully completed project and the product is steadily shipping to customers, we will be prioritizing the production and shipping of our 4K variant first. We are happy to announce that we have already secured the initial (limited) production quantity. The first 1000 Eve Spectrum 4K with glossy coating are estimated to start shipping in June 2022.
You already have an outstanding Spectrum order. Great! You want to upgrade your existing order to a unit with a glossy coating. That is totally possible! Our team has developed an upgrade policy to make the change as smooth as possible. We will be reaching out to all interested customers by email to outline what the possibilities are based on the status of your specific order.

There has been quite a discussion regarding the glossy pricing. As mentioned in our community post, the main reason for the price increase is the fixed development and LCD production line recalibration costs. In order to cover the costs over expected sales volume, we need to keep the upgrade price at $/€99 USD.
On the other hand, you are our community, and the promise we kept from the start is that early supporters and members of the Eve family get the best deals possible!
After a long internal discussion we have decided on the following:
The upgrade offer for the Glossy Spectrum will be at a reduced rate of $/€39 instead of $/€99 for the next 72 hours to give everyone who wants to see more glossy monitors out there a chance to get one at the best possible price.
We will refund everyone who has already paid, the difference in price. Our support team will take care of this for you so not need to reach out.
The limited time discount code will no longer be available as the price reduction will be directly available on the website, so for those who would like to order multiple monitors, this discount will apply per monitor.
After 72 hours we will increase the upgrade price back to $/€99.
At the end of the day, you, the Eve Community are a huge part of our business making decisions! The main thing about us is that we listen to our community! This is not done by many companies and feel this really sets us apart as we care about what matters most to you!
Now it is time to see your pretty face on Glossy Spectrum!
