With the Dough Spectrum, the manufacturer has introduced another display after the 4K 144 Hz monitor in September. The new model relies on an OLED panel with a refresh rate of 240 hertz and is to be offered for just 749 euros.
Dough Spectrum: The new OLED monitor in detail
The Spectrum OLED QHD 240Hz is equipped with a 27-inch QHD OLED display that exploits the full OLED potential thanks to individually illuminated pixels and a glossy polarizer. A rich black level, sharp details and vivid colors meet an adaptive refresh rate of up to 240 Hz, which makes smooth animations possible.
In addition, there is a response time of less than one millisecond. As usual, Dough has engaged extensively with its community of enthusiasts to tailor the Spectrum OLED QHD 240Hz to the needs of demanding gamers.
Like the previous models, the new Dough Spectrum relies on a glossy surface. It has a resolution of 2,560 x 1,440 pixels and reaches a peak of up to 1,000 cd/m². The typical peak is 450 cd/m², which earns it a VESA DisplayHDR 400 certification.
As is typical for OLEDs, the contrast ratio of 1,500,000:1 is particularly high, but the viewing angle of 178 degrees is also more than respectable.
Community determines connections and more
The crowd-development approach is to thank for the screen’s 16:9 aspect ratio and the practical selection of ports, among other things. In addition to HDMI 2.1, which supports the use of features like the variable refresh rates of the latest generation of consoles, the Spectrum OLED QHD 240Hz also offers a USB-C port that can be used to connect the monitor to peripherals or a laptop, for example.
In addition, the Dough Spectrum offers an integrated USB hub with two times USB-C and two times USB-A, a 3.5 mm jack and a KVM switch. A split-screen mode and picture-in-picture mode are also offered.
The monitor tilts (7 degrees down, 23 gad up) and has a pivot feature to rotate the screen 90 degrees. In terms of height, the monitor is adjustable by 122 millimeters. It also has VESA holes of 100 x 100 mm to be mounted on the wall or a monitor arm.
Add to that handy features like an upscaling mode, crosshair overlay, framerate counter, and firmware that can be easily updated.
