5 out of 5 eggsIf gaming is your reason to have an android device, this might be for you

Pros: I like some of the android apps and games but utterly hate touch screen controls. The key mapping although not perfect, generally solves this issue for me.
One of the best console emulators I have tried!
Very fast and responsive. Faster than my wifes note 3
Another issue I have with gaming on android devices is they tend to get hot. Piercing heat that makes my joints ache somehow. With built in fan, Im not bothered with heat buildup whatsoever!
This thing is sturdy!
While lacking any sort of Bass, the front speakers are very loud!

Cons: An owner since 12/6/ 2013 today is when my device broke down :(

Con#1 Biggest gripe is after extended use the rubber shell cover on the handles, back and d stick tend to absorb oils and moisture and in turn get gummy and soggy... It got so bad that I had to scrape this gunk from the case.. Please use better quality rubber or none at al next time Nvidia!

Con#2 the screen feels low quality... It should have been larger and at 1080 resolution. After using Note 3 my eyes hurt looking at Shields.

Con#3 Could not get the remote play function to work properly.. Router says 5 GHz frequency (RT-N56U) Shield says and acts like its 2.4 GHz... Shame

Con#4 I was hoping Id be able to use shield as a controller for PC..
Nvidia is stingy to let us have this feature..

Con#5 After nearly a year of use my micro usb port gave out and broke. Asking on the forum for help is pointless.. No replies

Other Thoughts: Hoping to figure out how to get the usb port fixed... Its perfectly functional and a waste to get another one because of something like this... Hoping Shield 2.0 comes out that addresses many of the mentioned gripes

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.
