5 out of 5 eggsShield is amazing

Pros: Great addition to any gaming computer with a GTX660 or better. The day I got it I was able to start streaming my Steam games wireless to my smart TV. Able to use it in my recliner while my computer was in the basement. Everything that was advertised worked perfectly.

Cons: Small screen and not all android games support the controller, but if you thinking about buying this to play android games your not using it for what it was built for.

Other Thoughts: something that I did not know when I bought the Shield was that their was a GRID beta for streaming games from their server in northern California. this worked very well for me and I am on the other side of the country. So it came with a few really nice games ($20+) on it their are right now 14 game that you can play threw GRID 100% free.

4 out of 5 eggsAmazing

Pros: * Very powerful for a mobile device
* Feels great in the hand
* Very long battery life
* Emulates games very well for a handheld.

Cons: The day after I had it I was using it and one of the back screws fell out while in use and I wasn't rough with it and it can get a bit hot but other than those two problems the device is very good and works amazing for what it is.

5 out of 5 eggsUnbelievable Value

Pros: -Overall just an amazing little piece of technology, and especially for the price!
-Backlit Nvidia logo shines brilliantly and has adjustable brightness.
-Feels sturdy. Control has same build or slightly better build quality than an Xbox 360 controller. Absolutely rock solid.
-Powerful quad-core processor that stomps most everything else in benchmarks right now.
-Many android games support the controller.
-Every emulator I have tried supports the controller.
-Nvidia has done a great job ironing this out!
-You will notice that it has some serious graphical horsepower for a handheld.
-Endless library of games because it's Android.
-With the most recent update, finally I can stream games from my mighty gaming PC. This is what prompted my review, as before I couldn't experience game stream without a hiccup. This most recent update seriously helped a lot... It's awesome now! Before games that had a setup screen on launch could not be launched from my Shield. Now there is a virtual keyboard and mouse integrated into streaming that allows this! The virtual keyboard and mouse also works in-game. This is awesome because many games before could not be played due to no controller support in the menus either!

Cons: -It can either be easy as pie or a hair-pulling time setting up game-streaming. Overall I would say get ready to do some work! I was lucky and had two routers and a few wireless adapters to try. Game streaming only worked with one of my routers and one of my wireless adapters. If you're having trouble connecting, it could be your router AS WELL AS the wireless adapter on your PC. My connection improved significantly when I switched from a cheap wireless N adapter to a more powerful and expensive one.

-My point is that you should experiment if you're having problems because it seems strangely picky about what will and will not work with game streaming!

5 out of 5 eggsSimply Amazing

Pros: Everything about this product is just perfect.

First of all the sound. I am somewhat of a stickler for quality audio, and for a long time been resigned to portable devices having below average volume and quality. The sound system on this device is spectacular. Usually on a portable device, if you turn the volume all the way up, its audible, but nothing more than audible. On this device, even turning the volume halfway up gets it LOUD. The audio quality is also excellent. VERY IMPRESSED.

Second, the systems design. I found the shield to be a welcome change from phones and tablets, which feel fragile and delicate. This system feels very sturdy!! It has some weight to it! Not in a bad way, you will be able to hold it for as long as you want, but it just feels so solid. Furthermore, the clamshell design makes it VERY easy to carry around without having to worry about wear and tear to the screen.

The system can also connect to the TV wirelessly with an HDMI to mini-HDMI cable, or wirelessly with Miracast. I have tried some games and they work perfectly with amazing sound and video quality.

In conclusion, the spectacular quality and workmanship of this device make me an instant fan of NVidia. I will be buying the second gen of this when it comes out, just to support the company and this platform.

Cons: Absolutely None

5 out of 5 eggsLuvz it

Pros: Awesome controller and screen combination. Can use full android market of apps and games. Also everything Ive purchased and downloaded on my android phone, once I sign in on my shield, it downloads all the games and apps I have on my phone. Also battery life is like 4-5 times longer than my cell phone battery. Buying the $40 case is a must imo.

Cons: There is none. Blah blah didn't get u a date with a supermodel, you don't own It yet, it doesn't print money or w/e else "clever" one can think of.

5 out of 5 eggsThis is great

Pros: I have a few consoles, like Nintendo DS 3D, PSP, and some Tables, Ipad and a regular Dell Streak, so far my favorite is NVIDIA SHIELD one of the reason is the unique model. People complain about is to heavy, I think is great size and good, too me people always look for the minimal to complain.

Cons: No cons.

Other Thoughts: I love the way it feel every one that think that know about technology and dont have or ear about this, they really dont know about nothing. My next NVIDIA product is the tablet. Ps: I love that i can linked to my video card that is a NVIDIA 750.

5 out of 5 eggsStop looking, click buy.

Pros: Three major reasons to buy:

1. Gamestream - Stream PC games from your Nvidia GTX 750 (or above) PC.

2. Play emulated games - Retroarch is great for this.

3. Android games - SUPRISINGLY, awesome games are being ported directly to Android for the Shield. Portal and Half-life 2! Crazy Taxi! GTA III, Vice City, and SA! These games look spectacular and Portal 2 is in the works.

The battery lasts forever when using an emulator and reasonably long when playing premium Android games.

Games look great on a TV via HDMI too.

Cons: Screen could be bigger. Given the size of the screen bezel, the screen could have been 1" bigger. I certainly would have welcomed a bigger screen.

Nvidia Shield 2 may come out soon, may cause the price of the original to decrease.

Other Thoughts: This is going to be huge for Android gaming. I've spent 3x more on Android games in the last month than I have for my last three Android phones.

There are rumors of an Nvidia Shield 2. Those rumors existed when I bought mine too. It will be awhile and I'll likely buy that when it comes out too, especially if it's based on the Tegra K1 processor.

5 out of 5 eggsBest Console Purchase Since the PS1

Pros: - Console Emulation from the Atari 2600 - the Dreamcast
(The best in class are: DraStic DS, SuperGNES, FPse (close second epsxe), reicast is works well but is still in alpha)
- Playing Android games that were built for a controller but you never had a good way to play them (GTA3 series, Don't Look Back, Riptide GP2, The Cave, Sonic CD, Crazy Taxy, Mini Motor, Rochard, Meltdown...)
- Connects to your TV with 1080p (With a micro HDMI cable you can connect it to your TV, close the lid an play in console mode. This also allows you to do Netflix/Hulu in full screen without a problem)
- Ability to connect other controllers to the Shield (with a wire, you can connect the PS3 and Xbox 360 controllers to the Shield without a problem. The 360 works best with the integrated mousing with the right stick)
- Ported computer games that you can play directly from your Shield (Portal, Half-Life 2)
- Design quality (Once I had used the Shield for a couple of weeks, I heard about connecting the PS3 controller, this way you can do multiplayer on your emulators, and I thought that would be cool. So I connected the controller and once I put the PS3 controller in my hand I could not believe how cheap it felt next to the Shield. The buttons felt cheap, the play in the joysticks felt terrible. The shield is very nice in the hand)
- Battery Life (The Shields battery life is one of the best I have seen in a portable, especially with the graphical quality it pushes out! I got stuck at the airport for over 8 hours and played on it non-stop and still had a little battery left. The remainder lasted me for most of the flight home. I don't recommend getting locked in an airport that long though...)
- Pure Android (Pure Android is pretty much the only way to go. If you have ever owned a Nexus you know what I mean. The Shield has minor tweaks to stock Android but they are all related to the gaming experience. There are some tweaks to make the right stick your mouse and the trigger your button, there is button mapping so that you can map touch screen actions/gyroscope to button presses or joystick movements but, other then that it is very similar to stock. This allows for quick updates, I have had about 4-5 updates since I purchased the Shield and it is currently on the newest version of Android.
- Sound (The speakers are quite loud, they are the best speakers I have seen in a portable device, not Bose quality but come on... seriously)
- Full articulating hinge (You can position the screen anywhere from barely open to full 180 and it will stay where you leave it, so no matter your favorite viewing angle it works great.)
- Control mapping (This is one of the keys to making this so amazing with Android games. You can map controls for just about any game with touch controls and the Shield will remember your configuration for every game you map to. Check out some videos, it is pretty much essential for a great Android experience)
- SD Card slot
- Play Store
- Grid
- Ga

Cons: - The space above only allowed 3000 characters....
- When I first got it, I remember thinking "This is heavier than I thought it would be" but now I have a hard time remembering why I thought that... Once you play it you never really think about that again.
- Not enough time to play it (you know that life thing kind of gets in the way)
- Doesn't cut toast (Well, it does, and pretty well actually, but then you get crumbs all over your screen and it gets in the hinge)
- Volume control is a little weird, you hit the "Volume" button, then some onscreen controls to change the volume appear on the right side... not a big deal but a little weird
- People probably still buy Vita's or 3DS' instead of this... those people are crazy! (For the same price as the Vita, you get all of the games your purchased in the Play Store and all of the free apps without doing anything)
- You probably should not try to drive while playing it... That would be pretty distracting.
- Once you buy one, you will find yourself needlessly wasting your time telling other people how awesome it is and that they should also purchase one... and you don't even get paid for your time...
- You will sit in front of your screen (wasting time again) trying to come up with humorous cons in a review section just to waste space

Other Thoughts: Continuation of Pros:

- Some computer card readers do not properly support a 64 gb card, so if it comes up with the wrong amount, get a different card reader. Also, to make it work on the Shield you must format the Micro SD card as NTFS and NOT exFAT (which is normally what they come formatted as...)
- Invest in a large Micro SD card, you will need them for all of the Playstation games you turned into ISO's from your collection.
- Grid is pretty awesome (nVidia is pretty much giving you 12 free (for now) pc games that you can stream over the internet on your Shield. This works amazingly well! I recommend "Gas Guzzlers" and "Darksiders")
- GameStream is neat (Gamestream is not quite as "Set it and forget it" as Grid but it is being improved all of the time. The downside is that you need to make sure that you have the right video card, processor, ram, and Wireless connection. It basically takes over your computer and allows you to see what is on your computer screen on your Shield.)
- Even without all of the stuff in this other section, the Shield is an amazing purchase. Come on, do it, it is worth it!
