Eve Devices originally pitched the Spectrum as the ideal display for enthusiasts - then pushed its delivery date back until well into 2021. However, it is still posting updates to its community website as a sign it is working on getting the product to the shipping stage. The latest one claims it is crossing things off a long list of desired features, which include VRR and an inbuilt frame-rate counter.

Eve Devices is a company that touts its products as "fan-designed" answers to big names in their markets, which include the Microsoft Surface series in the case of the first- and second-generation V convertible. However, its behavior as a company sometimes raises undeniable red flags, one of which is the announcement that the Spectrum monitor will miss its shipping deadline. This has happened not merely once but twice at this stage.

The latest postponement means that some customers who ordered the 144Hz/4K version of this monitor will not get a shipping confirmation until April 2021 at the earliest, whereas those who opted for the QHD model instead are now not likely to see one until the second quarter of the same year.

Nevertheless, Eve Devices now seeks to keep these customer's hopes high with a new update about the display's on-screen software (or OSD), which the company is apparently optimizing and individualizing as much as possible.

This, according to the new post, involves the inclusion of on-screen crosshairs and a frame-rate counter, which were popular requests back when Eve collected community feedback on what a monitor should offer. The OEM has also provided the status of each and every aspect of the Spectrum's firmware.

It is still in development, although a lot of features, some of which relate to hardware such as the monitor's USB type C and HDMI ports, are now reported as working. Then again, most of the things on this list still apparently either have bugs to be worked out or are still yet to be implemented.

They include the display's variable refresh rate (VRR), as well as the function and adjustability of its LEDs and backlight. Then again, in-production Spectrum units can apparently support color-temperature presets and changes, at least.
