Eve delays the release of its Spectrum monitors by between 2 and 6 months

Eve has delayed the release of its Spectrum monitors in what is the least shocking news of 2021, and probably 2020. The company had originally planned to begin shipping its latest product on February 26, but now will not until April 20 at the earliest. The 144 Hz QHD model will not arrive until the 'end of Q2', too.

With the Spectrum, Eve promises that it is a monitor that offers 'more power, no compromise'. Sadly, the company is willing to compromise on when it will release its second product. The reasons for delaying the release of the Spectrum series seem valid, as a Product Manager of the company explained in a blog post. Based on our review unit alone, Eve had a lot of issues to iron out with the Spectrum before it could be considered ready for release.

This is now the second time that Eve has delayed the release of the Spectrum series from an original release date of December 2020. Additionally, Eve is also the company alleged of owing customers over US$225,000 in Eve V refunds from over three years ago. Eve has been taking orders for the next Eve V too, which will supposedly ship in Q3 2021.

According to the same blog post, the first shipping date for the Spectrum series will be April 20. Unsurprisingly, there are caveats to this date. On the one hand, it is unclear if April 30 is the shipping date from the manufacturer in China or from warehouses in Europe and the US. Eve would not confirm this, and instead stated that 'several shipping options will be offered; we will provide more details later'.

On the other hand, the new shipping date of April 20 only applies to the 144 Hz/4K model. Apparently, Eve will begin shipping the and 240 Hz/QHD models 144 Hz/QHD models on April 30 and in the 'end of Q2', respectively. By the end of Q2 2021, Eve means almost July 2021. Eve insists that 'the adjusted timeline' will give everyone concerned enough time to get everything sorted, a note on the Spectrum reservation page leaves us unconvinced. You can read the note below, which we have highlighted.

If you were considering purchasing the 240 Hz/QHD version of the Spectrum, then there is an alternative. Dell sells the Alienware AW2721D, for example. While the AW2721D is more expensive than the equivalent Spectrum monitor, it is orderable now.
