Eve Devices pitches various accessories for the Spectrum monitor
Eve is a brand that prides itself on basing its products (such as its first-gen and somewhat benighted 2-in-1 PC, the V) on feedback from its customers. To this end, it claims to have chosen the specs of its Spectrum monitor on popular demand from its online community: for example, it will have a SKU with a 1440p IPS panel and a 240 hertz (Hz) refresh rate.
This product is available to order via a reservations-based ordering system, and should be ready to ship in the last quarter of 2020. In the meantime, Eve Devices has been gathering survey-based data on the type of accessories buyers might want alongside their new monitor. This process has apparently resulted in a range of popular hits, which include LED strips; VESA mounts; screen protectors; USB type C hubs; desk mats and mousepads.
Now, the brand is looking for preferences on the specs or properties those potential add-ons should have: for example, it wants to ascertain if most customers want a singular mount, or possibly one that allows for a dual-monitor set-up.
However, the structure of its latest poll suggests that only a limited number of these may be available per accessory: for example, in terms of the screen protector, there are discrete radio buttons for scratch protection, blue-light filtering and a privacy-guard without scope for a multiple-choice answer instead.
In the case of some others, such as the monitor hood or webcam rated to support Windows Hello security, the respondent can either approve of some attributes Eve has already chosen (a custom fit to block out light or inbuilt mics, for example) or reject them as accessory options altogether.
This latest post to the OEM's community website also contains potential bad news for those with Spectrum reservations or those currently considering the same, concerning the possibility of cables in the box as standard. The company has stated that they may not be in a position to include them should their apparently limited production budget have to go on other aspects of the monitor - such as its finish - beforehand.
