Greetings Eve Community,
Spectrum is shipping, reviews have started rolling in, and with more reviews to come, this is all very exciting!
Overall, the reviews have show-cased Spectrum beautifully, but don’t take my word for it. Check out the reviews for yourself below:

Optimum Tech | The Best 4k Gaming Monitor? Eve Spectrum Review
On the WAN Show, Linus confirmed they have the Spectrum. But they did a community poll to see if they should do it or not. 90% said yes, but I have no idea if they will get around to it or not. I really wish they wouldn’t sleep on this monitor as it is awesome like a lit of other reviewers have said. I guess it’s up to them whether they want to review it or not, but I’d be disappointed if I saw it just sitting on shelf, unopened.
Thanks for that info then.
Just gonna hope they release a review soonish then.
Taking your word for it since my trying to look through the many wan show videos didnt yield any source for when he said that, haha.
They talked about how even 10-20% of viewers who react negatively to a video can cause some serious blowback on them. I am wondering if they decided it is not worth the chance that people would react badly to it like the first video they did. Same for Hardware Unboxed as I still have not seen a video from them and know that they were contact by Eve awhile ago to get an early unit to review. I am wondering if they also decided it is not worth the trouble. Tim posted on reddit back when they were first contacted by Eve and most of the people on the thread were bashing Eve and saying they are a scam company and not to give them any PR. I thought at the end Tim was saying they may order a monitor as a normal person and not get a review unit from Eve to avoid any golden samples. Maybe they are waiting on their order to be delivered with standard delivery or maybe they will avoid reviewing it at all.
I don’t think Linus is going to review the Spectrum and if I was him I would do the same, it’s just risky. There is a serious possibility that thousands of people will buy the Spectrum because of that review and if things will be handled like they are doing now it’s going to backfire on him a lot.
Not worth the risk imo, also Eve doesn’t deserve as of now that much visibility for 2 reasons:
How they treat customers.
They could receive too many orders that will worsen this already bad situation.
