The display is generally good and as I expected. HDMI2.1 with 4K at 120Hz is wonderful with my PS5.
Illumination is fairly even for an edge-lit LCD, but black levels are a bit too light/gray, especially at the bottom of the screen there is a permanent glow.
Additionally, it would be nice to be able to adjust the position of the frame rate and crosshairs. Also, I'm very excited about the split screen mode when it becomes available.
Last but not least, a firmware upgrade option for Mac OS would be good, since not everyone is likely to have a Windows PC handy.
Still, I would definitely buy the Spectrum again.
I already had a 4K monitor. However it was a very early model and the improvement in both clarity and framerate is immediately apparent. I am happy with the build quality and the number of features and ports it supplies. I love the high framerate and on some games I can max it out on both visuals and framerate with my high end PC and its a great experience visually. Its not a five star because I consistently have issues when switching between displaying using the USB-C port with my macbook and the HDMI 2.1 port on my Windows 11 machine. Sometimes turning off the display works to fix it, sometimes I have to reboot my Windows 11 pc to HDMI input to work again. If I don't switch, everything works. If I switch to the macbook using USB-C it always works. Switching back to HDMI gives me issues. I'm not sure if it is an issue with my machine / software or the monitor.
superbe écran jolie desing et très réactif ! merci eve !
This is an extraordinary monitor, offering premium features (144Hz, 4k, VRR, 1ms reaction time, backlight strobing, 2x HDMI 2.1, user upgradable firmware, HDR, …) at a very reasonable price point. It also features the cleanest design of any high-end monitor I have ever seen.
I have no complaints, apart from some minor inconveniences:
* When turning the monitor off at 144Hz, it won't find the connection when turning back on. I have to set it to 60Hz refresh rate, then the signal is found, then I can switch it back to 144Hz.
* Sometimes, the screen starts randomly flickering. This can be fixed by switching to 60Hz and back to 144Hz.
I am likely to buy the glossy version as well.
I really like my 4k spectrum, it's proving absolutely amazing for both work and gaming.
the panel itself is good. I had some red spots in the beginning, but the disappeared over time. when screwing the pylon in the foot, it does not fit 100%, so some paint comes of at the foot which gives a tolerable but unattractive mark at the groove. The main issue is the firmware (1.04) which is very buggy and needs improvement. (slow, loading presets does not work, crashes!, missing features). Moreover I cannot get it to run at 144Hz at any of my computers although some should support it, but hard to tell if it is Spectrum's fault.
Great minimalistic looking monitor, great colours, performs great at high refresh rates, great fit for current gen consoles and high spec PCs. The only things holding it back from being perfect are screen flashing issues and sound sometimes cutting out when switching inputs, which hopefully are going to be fixed. HDR could also be improved but it is serviceable.
I purchased the monitor during the global pandemic period because I was lacking from a second screen for my laptop. I considered that the screen should be capable of both: a good working experience and a good console experience, since I already own both next-gen machines.
Despite the delays on the delivery, once I finaly got the monitor I was really happy with my purchase. I use it on daily basis, around 10h for work + a few hours a week for gaming, and those are my main points:
- Set of ports is good, I use both HDMI & DP for image, and the usb-c for hub and works well.
- Experience for changing the image source is tricky.
- it is a shame that audio cannot be extracted with a e-arc + optical and only through the jack.
- HDR, because of the local dimming, does not perform well. I like to play with subs enabled, and it completely ruins the image colors. Some huds as well.
- Flawless experience at 4K60 or even 4K120 :) The VRR works fine as well.
- Without HDR, colors and brightness are more than enough for my usage.
- The stand is TOP, easy to assemble. Even if it lacks some lateral tilt, the movement is good and stays on place (I have some extra weight on top with the lightbar and the webcam)
- Easy to update Firmware, however menus design can bee more fancy.
To conclude, as a basis for future EVE products, the spectrum is a rock solid start and a good value for money option (at least for me) when I purchased with the pre-booking discount. At that pricepoint, I don't think there are better options than ES03. I'd recomend without heasitation the monitor to my collegues that want a high-end performance at a contained price point.
My confidence in EVE as a company is now better than when I started this long journey to get the spectrum, so in case they want to expand the portolio in the future, here are my suggestions:
- DP 2.0
- e-arc HDMI & optical audio OUT
- Daisy Chain
- glossy finnish (already done by eve)
- 5K curved UltraWide 34'' option
- OLED display (1000 nits brightness)
- Full Array Local Dimming
- Hability to divide screen into multiple sources (2) and display them simultaneously.

Why not a color e-ink monitor for work (24-27")?
This is an amazing monitor!! Great picture quality and perfect for next generation gaming
I have bought this display after having already another 4K gaming monitor. First, because Eve had a very strong proposition, and second, because of its beautiful design. Today I am truly happy for having made that choice. The Eve spectrum is my main display, both for working and gaming. Great image, wonderful design and love all the connections. Listening to what people wants is a great way of building a product. Please keep it going.
Amazing experience, just some litle bug for the hdr on xbox but there some patch for fixe so, best screen ever
The monitor has issues with turning on and finding the signal. You can rarely wake your computer from sleep with a working monitor, and requires a hard reset. Sometimes you need to turn both the computer and the monitor off and on again a couple of times before you get an image. Every other week, it gets so stuck that you need to fully disconnect the power. The USB is also flaky, Even with always on, it turns off with the monitor, so you cannot use USB apparel to turn on your computer. It also has a loud high pitch beep. I've been very patient and updated all the way to firmware 1.5. I wholeheartedly regret my purchase.
great monitor very clean display only issue is with the joystick on the back
