The other day I read a reddit post about the current low-quality of many gaming monitors in the market. I think it talks about many important things and concepts, so I highly recommend you to read it.
I was thinking about three aspects of this article in which the Eve Spectrum could do better than the majority of monitors in the market:
- Accept the signal from Windows HD Color and auto-switch between sRGB and P3 based on the current content in use: Right now with monitors you have to manually switch between sRGB and P3 depending on what you want to reproduce. Current TVs offer this auto-switch which allows a color reproduction as the artist intended without manual selection from the user.
- Factory color calibration: please proper calibrate these monitors from factory! I know this delays the the production of the monitor in the assembly line, but I don’t mind to pay 30-50 euros more to the workers if this assures a good calibration. I think somebody commented this before in Eve Community, but this calibration would be a way to offer unique value over the competition. This is a chance for you to make things right. Of course, if somebody does not want to pay extra for the calibration (because maybe they have a calibration tool/device at home) allow them not to pay for this.
- Offer a good local dimming experience: I read that you are focusing the HDR experience for global-dimming (in theory this will be the default dimming value of the Eve Spectrum). I know this is not a proper FALD HDR monitor, and that edge-local-dimming has its limitations, but please make sure that the Spectrum offers a good local dimming experience! According to many reviews, the ultra-ultra-wide (32:9) Samsung C49RG9 monitor with HDR1000 offers a really good HDR performance even though the monitor has only 10 edge-lit zones in such a wide format. At least with the models 2 and 3, the Eve Spectrum has 16 zones in a 16:9 format. I think we could get at least a HDR experience as good as the one that this Samsung C49RG9 offers, even though we have HDR600. Why global-dimming has to be the default dimming option for the Spectrum? I don’t get it. In which cases global-dimming is better than local-dimming? I think that maybe in content creation, but for the majority of games and videos local-dimming should be the way to go.
