Looking for the ultimate gaming monitor that will give you an immersive experience with all the essential things you use every day? It’s easy to find yourself getting lost in thousands of choices offered by many brands out there. As tech enthusiasts and consumers, ourselves, we’ve been in the exact same shoes before. That’s why we decided to take matters into our own hands, with the help of thousands of community members, and launched Project Spectrum. If you may be wondering if the Spectrum 4K 144Hz monitor is the right choice for you, we will take a look at some of the key features of the monitor and see if it is the right choice for your needs.
Screen size and aspect ratio
The bezel-less Spectrum monitor is the ideal display for gamers and professionals to view content and games that gives you plenty of space to see all the action taking place, greeting you with a screen size of 27 inches and an aspect ratio of 16:9. No wonder this is the most popular monitor size preferred by our community.
No matter what game you're playing or what movie you're watching, you'll find yourself immersed in what you’re doing, thanks to the 4K resolution with a PPI of 163. A higher pixels-per-inch above >110 gives you sharp, crisp, and clear content and texts without getting distracted by individual pixels. By the time of writing, display technology is advanced and affordable enough that we would not recommend going for “Full-HD” monitors that can only output a pixelated and noticeably lower quality look. If your budget doesn’t allow for a 4K monitor, saving up for Quad-HD (1440p)
IPS panel with HDR
If you’re looking to game, do some professional work, and watch some entertainment content, nano IPS panel, known for its accurate colors and wide viewing angles is the perfect choice for you. The Spectrum monitor also includes an impressive HDR (High dynamic range) up to 750 nits of peak brightness, which means it can display a wider range of colors, shades and brighter than standard monitors without HDR. Blacks will be blacker; whites will be whiter. Your favorite fantasy games and cinematic movies will become more immersive and realistic. The peak dynamic contrast ratio of 10 million to 1 delivers excellent contrast and color performance that most budget monitors don’t have, presenting you more realistic images and videos with better contrast and detail.
Refresh rate and response time
Most displays limited to 60Hz will display fast-paced action with a lot of stuttering. Blurring or lagging is a noticeable issue while you're gaming, especially in first-person shooter games. Variable 144Hz refresh rate means you'll be able to see all the action taking place giving you the speed when you need it most. Games become smoother, scrolling appears better, and your computer will even feel snappier without upgrading your hardware. The response time is also important for gaming as it determines how quickly each pixel can change from one color to another. Spectrum's 1ms response time results in less ghosting and blurring, giving you a no-lag gaming experience.
Tuned for Gaming
To make sure you get the most out of the monitor and play straight out of the box, we added presets tuned for trouble-free gameplay. If you’re into tweaking settings, you can also choose your own settings with extensive overdrive and backlight strobing controls. We believe it's essential to give gamers the ability to customize settings for their specific preferences, which include frame-rate overlay, crosshair overlay, and pixel-perfect integer scaling for a near-authentic retro gaming experience.
To play open-world and adventure games with colors that translate accurately, the Spectrum monitor comes factory-calibrated with 99% sRGB coverage and 98% DCI-P3 color gamut? Basically, the closer to 100%, the better. The display industry considers a display to be color accurate if its ΔE (Delta E) value is lower than <2 (lower is better). However, the Spectrum displays an average ΔE of 0.6, thanks to the time-consuming individual calibration we added to our production process. All of this effort is to make sure you receive the most color-accurately calibrated 4K monitor with vibrant and saturated colors that pop, giving you a great user experience great for gaming, and creative work like photography and editing.
If you've done some looking, you will know how hard it is to find monitors with the essential ports you need. Well, we listened to our community and added a built-in hub right behind the monitor. Spectrum currently stands as the king of ports with the most advanced port selection in the monitor market (No, that doesn't mean we support VGA). We listened to our community and they decided what ports should be included, and the functionality of the ports. The Spectrum monitor comes with HDMI 2.1, DisplayPort, USB Type-C, Type-A, and a headphone jack.
Enjoy less cable-mess, and one seamless connectivity with the built-in USB hub supporting up to 100W charging over USB-C enabling video, audio, and data with a single cable. Two HDMI 2.1 ports unlock the peak performance of your next-gen gaming gear like the PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X/S, enabling VRR (variable refresh rate) up to 120fps at 4K. The simple design completely enhances the way you interact with your display and devices while taking care of your cables out of your sight.
Matte or Glossy coating
Where are all the glossy gaming monitors? We asked the same question, and then we found out almost every gaming monitor is coated with a matte surface finish, that's very effective in minimizing direct reflections but not everyone has the same setup in the same environment. To ensure a great user experience, we introduced the world's first glossy gaming monitor. So, the choice is yours. The industry-standard matte finish minimizes distractions by diffusing reflections and is ideal when you have little control over the lights in your environment. The new glossy finish enhances your experience by providing more vibrant colors, deeper blacks, and sharper content, perfect if you have control over light sources in your room. We dive in-depth about this topic in another blog post.

The color accuracy, response time, and refresh rate make it the perfect monitor for any kind of task you throw at it. With its built-in USB hub and extra ports, the Spectrum has everything you need to connect all your devices. Choose between a matte or glossy coating that fits your needs.
