Eve V


Eve V review: Can this plucky, crowdsourced upstart take on the likes of the Microsoft Surface Pro? The answer is yes, to a certain degree.

Good-quality screen (but not one for accuracy) ; Great value with included accessories ; Lots of ports ; Decent performance ; Backlit keyboard cover works independently

Some minor build quality issues ; So-so battery life ; Can currently only be bought direct in flash sales

A great-value convertible for anyone who finds dealing with dongles a headache.

EVE Valkyrie preview


EVE Valkyrie looks to be a swoon-worthy 3D Virtual Reality flight simulator for both the PC and the PS4. T3 was treated to an early preview

EVE Valkyrie looks incredibly promising. Developer CCP is being tight-lipped about when it's planning to release the game and what it will cost, but it has revealed players will be given several different types of craft to fly and they'll have a host...

Eve V preview: What makes the crowd-funded Surface Pro rival so special?


A crowd-funded tablet/laptop hybrid might not usually catch the eye, but clearly Microsoft feels there's something special about the Eve V. It highlighted

Eve V review: The wisdom of the crowd mostly pays off


The Eve V was designed by users for users, and while a lot could have gone wrong, very little did. It's a well-built machine considering the relative inexperience of the company behind it, and it offers solid performance and a great screen at a...

Great build quality ; Bright, beautiful display ; Comfortable keyboard ; Lots of ports ; Modestly priced compared to the Surface

Active pen isn't as precise as others ; Keyboard doesn't always perform well over Bluetooth ; Speakers sound lifeless ; Slightly heavy for a tablet PC

Eve Technology Eve V review


Solid build quality ; Plenty of ports ; Excellent display ; Great battery life ; A few unique features found nowhere else

Keyboard could be better ; Performance is held back by a low-power CPU ; Pen technology is way behind the curve ; Company's ability to deliver is uncertain

The idea of crowdsourcing a major piece of hardware like a detachable tablet is intriguing, and the Eve V is certainly designed in accordance with its community’s demands. It’s also late, meaning that some design decisions — like the pen technology,...

This Surface Pro killer compromises on performance


Crowdsourced ideas can sometimes work out really well.

The Eve V comes loaded with a fanless aluminum design, a brilliant display and a decent number of ports.

Performance isn’t as strong as some of the competition and the kickstand doesn’t stand up to the excellent one on the Surface Pro. It may be hard to get one unless you already preordered through its crowdfunding campaign.

The crowd-designed Eve V offers competitive pricing and a better feature set than the Surface Pro, but getting your hands on one will be the real challenge.

Eve V review: can a scrappy upstart undercut the Surface Pro?


Back in May, I met a young CEO called Konstantinos Karatsevidis at the Computex Taipei trade show. His company, Eve-Tech, has an unusual pitch — why buy computers from massive companies like Dell...

Great screen ; Strong battery life ; Lots of ports ; Good value

Unproven reliability ; Unconventional availability ; Heavy by tablet standards ; Backspace key says “oops!”

Beyond the rebellious marketing and convoluted back story, the Eve V is just a really good computer. If Eve-Tech can follow through on supply and reliability — and that may be a big if — I absolutely recommend it.

Eve V Review: dreams can come true


Microsoft has never had good luck with its own hardware outside of the Xbox. And when it did strike gold, the company may have suddenly decided to take things in a different direction. Rumors of the Surface Pro's imminent demise and the OEM fallout...

Bright “retina” IGZO screen ; Keyboard functions both wired and wirelessly ; eGPU support via Thunderbolt 3 ; 2 x USB 3.0, 1 x USB-C, 1 x Thunderbolt 3 ; Decent battery life

Completely flat power and volume buttons are hard to find

Eve V (m3, i5, i7) Convertible Review


From the crowd to the people. It has been about a year since the Eve V project made waves on the Indiegogo crowdfunding platform. The financial goal was achieved within a record time and finally even exceeded by more than 1800%. Now the time has come...

high-quality unibody case, robust construction ; comfortable feel of tablet and keyboard ; Thunderbolt 3 and Type-C Gen. 1 port ; good WiFi performance ; complete package with keyboard dock and pen included in the price ; keyboard also suitable for...

rather heavy in comparison ; included Type-C charging cable wiggles ; dirt-resistance of the keyboard is questionable ; performance of the m3 version is inconsistent with our expectations ; additional gains of eGPU are heavily limited by the CPU ;...

And here it is, the new people's convertible Eve V! Here is a summary of our test: The Eve V is an attractive device, but it should not be over-estimated.

Eve V review: A premium tablet designed by committee (that turned out pretty well)


Plenty of small companies run crowdfunding campaigns to raise money and generate buzz for their new products. Eve-Tech went a bit further with its new tablet. The wasn't just crowdfunded… it was crowd-developed.

Overall, the Eve V is a nice looking computer with a great screen, surprisingly decent speakers, and a $799 starting price that puts it squarely in Microsoft Surface Pro territory.
