Eve says the Spectrum’s reservation price is a time-sensitive discount
Update: The "first 500" units have been reserved, and Eve has started to increase the prices asked for the Spectrum, starting with an increase of US$10 per SKU (correct at time of writing).
Following a lengthy campaign of teasers, Eve has finally released the full details of its second device, the monitor Spectrum. It has a 27-inch IPS Oxide panel with a 1-millisecond refresh rate and a proprietary stand. These specs have been chosen in collaboration with the community of fans and enthusiasts that has been built up around this brand since its V days.
Eve has put the base 144Hz/QHD model at US$349; the 240Hz/QHD option at $489, and the 144Hz/4K SKU at $589. Now, however, it seems these prices won’t last forever. The company has stated that only the first 500 units ordered will go at these rates. Its email on this subject specifically mentioned this first price, however.
On the other hand, it is certain that Eve has said “We’re offering our first 500 buyers an amazing discount! After that our price will increase steadily with every amount of sold Spectrum’s”. Therefore, it seems the brand is adopting an extreme early-bird model with its new device. However, the buyer only needs to put $100 down now in order to secure this initial price.
Nevertheless, the optional stand still comes in at $99. All in all, if you want this new, uniquely-designed display, the best time to grab one may be right now. The reservation prices appear to remain in effect at present (correct at time of writing).
