Developed with the community, Dough (formerly Eve) has launched the Spectrum display in a new 4K UHD, 144Hz version and, for the first time, a mirrored (glossy) screen option. However, the company does not inspire confidence.

The Spectrum 4K 144Hz keynote speaks to the spirit of many computer users who want a 27-inch screen with 3840 x 2160 pixels, 144Hz refresh rate and a relatively bright IPS panel including certification according to DisplayHDR 600. The reflective display option has become very exclusive in field of gaming monitors, but that would mean an additional cost of $150.

Before making a purchase, you should read the following sections, because this is not without risk.

From crowdsourcing miracle to bogeyman

Almost three years ago, Eve-Tech got attention because it wanted to offer screens that had to be designed according to the wishes of society. The first “crowdsourcing monitoring” was formed and can be pre-ordered in three versions at the beginning of 2020.

But not everything went smoothly and the company that was already involved in Tablet Eve V. They couldn’t keep their promises, also disappointed by the screen project. Eve’s Spectrum, as the screen is called, has been repeatedly delayed (due to changes too). Pre-orders sometimes had to wait a long time for their screen or still do today.

threads on reddit Titled “How do I get my money back from Eve” or months of delivery times are complained. Misery with screens has Reddit users Kirkle 8 Summarize it in great detail. According to this, Eve has already promised five new models, but has only delivered one of them so far. There are also reports of technical problems.

All of this casts a lot of shadows on Eve’s company, which at the same time Renamed to dough she has. The name change was officially justified by the fact that the name Eve could not be protected under trademark law. But the assumption is that the dirty board should be washed clean with it.

Against this background, the new screens of dough (formerly Eve) can be followed with interest, but past problems should not be forgotten before applying.
