NVIDIA SHIELD Portable

5 out of 5 eggs Amazing! 01/20/2015

This review is from: NVIDIA SHIELD Portable

Pros: Very fast, excellent picture quality, the most responsive and accurate touch screen I have ever used, long battery life, gamestream works good, great for browsing the web, has an extra low power cpu core for video playback, good sound quality, nice easy to use gamepad, free NVidia grid game streaming service. Also came with two free games preloaded, This thing is well worth the money.

Cons: It's a bit heavy due to the large battery. NVidia grid service does not work well for me but it's free so I can't complain too much. The battery seems to drain while in sleep mode, almost like it's still on. There was an update that was suppose to fix this but apparently it didn't.

MSI GeForce GTX 970 GTX 970 GAMING 4G 4GB 256-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI Support G-SYNC Support Video Card
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Very powerful for the price. It's roughly equivalent to a Titan or an R9 290x in performance, but uses less power. Runs cool and quiet, looks nice.

Cons: none

Other Thoughts: If you are running an AMD cpu you will probably have a bottleneck with this. I'm running it with an fx 8320 and there's a bottleneck even when I over clock. It's not a huge bottleneck but you can push more performance out of this card with a newer i5 cpu.

NZXT Phantom CS-NT-PHAN-R-3.0 Red Steel / Plastic ATX Full Tower Computer Case
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Very big, comes with a few fans and has room for several more, keeps my CPU, GPU, chipset and power supply all running cool. Has a nice shiny red finish.

Cons: Does not have a slot to put in a card reader

Other Thoughts: I was using a cheap rosewill mid size tower before I switched to this case and everything has dropped about 10 degrees Celsius in temperature. My fx 8320 runs at 45c average under load and my radeon 7950 boost runs at 50c average.
