1 out of 5 eggsworst recall fulfillment ever

Pros: its a good paperweight

Cons: I have been waiting 4 months now for NVIDIA to honor and comply with the recall of this tablet. I called them over 5 times in the last 4 months giving them more than ample time to replace the shield tablet they managed to ineptly manufacture as a make shift firebomb. I have contacted the consumer product safety commission and told them of the run around I am getting at NVIDIA. What is my next step? I feel I have no other recourse but to take them to small claims court. I will not be buying any other NVIDIA products. I cringe at the thought of going through this arduous process with one of their highend video cards.

Other Thoughts: I wish I never saw their blasted tablet

5 out of 5 eggsShield

Pros: Epic screen, very good battery life, extremely versitile, free decent stylus. Great speakers, tons of accessories. Fast processor smooth functioning OS( until lollipop).

Cons: recall, lollipop is junk on this thing so far. Used to be able to watch 1440p videos (almost perfect for the screen) and since the recall and installed lollipop given to the shield I can't even load a 1440p video in chrome in any way with or without updates. I have the probalem on my other lollipop devices so it's most likely googles fault.

Other Thoughts: It has great gaming performance and i used it for a week or so instea of a the dying gigabyte laptop i ordered, was fine with a bluetooth keyboard. Makes a great netflix stream box on wifi using the 80 dollar wireless controller makes it very nice to use on my tv.

4 out of 5 eggsOne Year Later...

Pros: So, I've had my Shield for just about a year, and it has been really great...till about a week ago, more on that later. But first i love the size and screen ratio, netflix with the front facing speakers is good, They are not Bose 301's but hey, get's the job done. The few games i have on it run well, but the ads on some of them get old fast. The pen is cool too, I use that as much for 'dabbling' as the game thing. So, overall, not a bad rig.

Cons: So, about a week ago my shield got some kind of ground-hog-day thing, as every time it starts, i get the message "Unfortunately, the process has stopped." then pressing the OK button, it dims then the message comes right back. So...kinda annoying...since this is a 'tablet' and not a 'phone'. Google...if your reading this, don't you have an Android for tablets, and an Android for phones? cause it is gonna make me never buy an android tablet again. Nvidia, can you make a "Shield" with windows...they might work longer and better, but what do i know. So, i'm looking at my screen and it shows a dead android with a ! on it with "no command" underneath. not a great way to start the weekend.

5 out of 5 eggsA Powerful Tablet

Pros: This thing is a beast compared to other tablets. I am extremely happy with my decision to purchase it.

I looked around everywhere, double checking system specs with other tablets and this is by far the best for the price.

Cons: None so far to date.

2 out of 5 eggsIt's terrible

Pros: The stylus and handwriting recognition are fantastic. Games are responsive and smooth for the most part.

Cons: I get video lag when watching movies. But the thing that makes this tablet and utter piece, is that the power button for sleep mode and power down is often unresponsive. The touchscreen is unresponsive on many occasions, and the tablet freezes up on a daily basis. I have to reboot the thing several times a day. It's been this way since I've purchased it, and when I looked up these problems online it seemed there were patches coming soon to resolve the issues.

Other Thoughts: I hate it and I wish I could send it back. If it had basic power button and touchscreen responsiveness, it would have 5 eggs.

4 out of 5 eggsHigh End Specs - Budget Price

Pros: 1) Tegra K1 - This tablet can run anything that is thrown at it with ease!!

2) Dual front speakers - Stereo - Great Quality

3) Great build quality - It feels sturdy and has held up very well

4) Lollipop

5) Great Screen especially for Netflix and Vudu

Cons: 1) The Power Button is fidgety at best... I highly recommend a magnetic case for the automatic screen on function.

2) A random restarts - I haven't tracked down a culprit for this yet...

3) The WIFI model only has 16GB internal memory...That is not enough.

The memory shouldn't be a big issue but a lot of apps cannot be moved to SD. At this point with a bare minimum of apps installed i'm sitting @ 6.4 GB...Not a strong point for a "gaming" tablet.

Other Thoughts: All around solid tablet!!!
Even with it's few issues I still would recommend this power house.

2 out of 5 eggsAlmost

Pros: Great screen.
Video performance.
Console mode ( using ethernet adpater)

Cons: Laughable wifi performance. ASUS router at home and Cisco AP at work. Tablet can seem to work with either. Says it has full bars, however cant pass traffic. Ping test to tablet shows packet loss while ipad/ HTC one show perfect connection.

Other Thoughts: Would be great if the Wi-Fi would work the majority of the time. Been hopeful a firmware/ software update would fix it. I'm not on lollipop with no sign of hope.

2 out of 5 eggsWifi performance is terrible.

Pros: Graphically very powerful. Has some interesting features like streaming games from my PC.

Cons: The Wifi on this tablet is terrible. Even when it says it has 3-4 bars, it takes several seconds to load webpages, if they load at all. Tablet drops wifi signal every ~30 seconds unless I'm within 15 feet of router AND have line of sight. Can't use this tablet in my bedroom or bathroom, less than 20 feet from my router, with only 1 or 2 walls in between. I've watched this tablet drop signal several times while using a laptop or my other tablet a couple feet away. Putting a hand over the stylus corner blocks the signal completely. Being able to stream games from my PC doesn't matter if sitting at my PC is the only place with a strong enough signal to do it.

First time I ordered this tablet, it was DOA. I should've accepted that as a sign of its quality and chosen something different three weeks ago. Now I'm once again stuck with my old tablet while I wait for my return to go through and order something that actually works.

Other Thoughts: If you only ever use your tablet while sitting in the same room as your router, and the room isn't too big, and you don't put your hand over the wrong corner, it might work.

4 out of 5 eggsBleeding Edge Ups and Downs

Pros: This device is certainly powerful. Clear screen, HDMI functionality, precise touches, large speakers and more! I've used this device as a console and a painting canvas, as well as all my normal Android utilities and games. I've even steamed the playing of the preinstalled game on Twitch.

Cons: It is not tried and true tech, there are lots of hangups and bugs hiding in different interactions (especially in slow internet or when the Wi-Fi isn't connected). The system does come with some software that can't be uninstalled (including a 1.5GB game), which shrinks the increasingly small 16GB internal storage.

Other Thoughts: A workaround for the $60 controller can be found in a USB Xbox360 controller with a micro USB converter (though the device then can't be charged). The HDMI is a smaller port, therefore will require an adapter or special cord. On my specific television, the projected screen had small areas outside my televisions boundaries that I couldn't do anything about.

1 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Enjoyed it while it lasted.

Cons: My unit died in 2 days. Would not turn on. I enjoy the tablet but I would expect that items made by 100% laser guided machines in factories would not have these kind of issues.
