5 out of 5 eggs Awesome Mobile Device 12/06/2013

This review is from: NVIDIA SHIELD Portable

Pros: -Feel Solid, doesn't feel like a toy or cheap
-Fast, I love my nexus 7, but this thing blazes through everything
-Flexibility in gaming options. Android gaming, emulators, pc streaming, console mode.
-Can serve as a media center in console mode.

Cons: -A bit heavy
-Awkward to carry around town
-After hours of usage, my hands become uncomfortable.
-Wished analog sticks were like 360 controller an not dual shock, but that's a personal preference
-Price, you got to pay to play, but feel that $200 would be the sweetspot

Other Thoughts: I love thing, as a tinkerer there is so much to love with the Shield. I've been able to play games varying from Dead Trigger 2 and GTA Vice city in android, to Zelda: Ocarina of time and Star Fox in a N64 emulator, to streaming Borderlands 2 and Skyrim.

Just before bed I launched hulu plus and caught up on some shows. I feel like a kid again with an awesome new toy. Looking forward to seeing what else nvidia is planning for this.

Pros: They work!
My reading comprehension sucks, because I wasn't expecting 2 of them!

Cons: So far none.

Other Thoughts: I wanted to be able to use my 64gb flash drive to hold movies for my 2013 Nexus 7.

This product solved my problem once I purchased Nexus Media Manager.

Now I can keep the memory for my nexus 7 for other stuff.

Pros: Fast card, can max out most games, except the big boys like Crysis 3 and Battlefield 4, but even those look great at high settings.

Came with free games!

Cons: Can get loud! I installed this in my Alienware x51, and since it is a slim case I did expect to have to ramp up the fan speed, but at 60% fan speed this thing sounds like a jet, lol!

Also I had to modify the fan profile in MSI Afterburner, since the stock profile let the card reach up to 100c!

Other Thoughts: Overall this thing was the upgrade I was hoping for my 1080p 60fps console killer, the Alienware x51.

I have this hooked up to my tv and this card lets me enjouy maxed out games, provided I turn up my sound system to drown out the fans.
