that's interesting. i'm waiting for a 1440p 240hz panel that isn't tn.

this acer doesn't seem to use the same panel as the eve spectrum qhd though.

acer: panel by auo, 8 bit, hdr400, matte,

eve: panel by lg, 10 bit (8 bit + frc), hdr600, 20% anti-glare

both mention a typical 1000:1 contrast ratio and backlight strobing.

spec-wise the eve looks somewhat better.

the anti-glare is my biggest gripe with monitors today. one would assume manufacturers would save the extra work because gaming monitors are usually at homes where one can control the light... instead they insist on ruining a crisp image by placing a coating over it. i have a glossy monitor here, an overlord korean 1440p monitor from 2014 or 2015, and an acer xb270hu (matte), and the glossy one is visibly more vibrant...

so between these 2, i'd rather get the eve. i'll wait for reviews first. there's also the upcoming samsung g7 , but let's see first if a va panel makes a usable 240hz display.

Problem is people complain about reflections so then monitor makers try to please everyone and deal with these complaints, too glossy! So they make it matte. Too matte! So their make it semiglossy. Too glossy! So they make it more matte. And so on it goes one panel to the next.
Ideal is around almost glossy but it also depends on the specific filter, some are better some worse. That way it breaks the reflections a tiny bit so you can't easily see yourself on dark scenes shown on monitor but it's not so matte that it ruins clarity too much.
Pure glossy is kind of a pain to use unless you paint your face black, wear a black shirt or only use the display with bright content.

They could also order from their panel maker both glossy and semi glossy variant, let people choose, but even from one brand to another they don't want to, they rather get the same exact panel as everyone else and refuse to risk and offer something that would allow them to stand out in some way. Or the extra for a different coating layer would be $1 per monitor due to lower volume and well that doesn't pass money grabbing of pushing costs to an absolute minimum.

Sometimes they just don't care, they will use straight out matte not even semi glossy.

Pure glossy can look wow in a showroom but not so much having to use it long term. And with higher and higher PPI it will be more and more important to move to more and more glossy.

Historically speaking, a monitor with an LG panel will be less matte and slower while a monitor with an AUO panel will be... well, the other way around. I base "historically" on virtually all reviews with response time and sub-pixel analysis from around 2015 to today.

I'll still take the extra image quality most of the time, don't get me wrong, but the AUO panel might be more relevant in the context of 240Hz. Now, if we could get an AHVA panel with as little haze as an IPS panel, that'd be great!

I can use either one but the colors are more poppy on a glossy screen vs a matte

I wouldn't trust Eve until they are in the hands of retailers and other vendors.

The Acer XF270HUA is probably still the best FreeSync monitor: https://www.amazon.com/Acer-XF270HU-.../dp/B07CY137XM

Haven't had any blinking issues with nVidia's VRR implementation of G-Sync compatible and LFC works fine also.
