Pros: -Super Power Efficient (165 TDP!!!)
-Quiet at Idle Quiet at Load
Cons: -Compared to 970 a bit overpriced
Other Thoughts: I have been running a MSI GTX 670 OC for almost a year in my Alienware x51 with no problems, but that card was the strongest card I could run due to my psu.
When I heard the new Nvidia Cards where going to be low powered I was estatic, so glad that this card is running great in my system, and is twice as fast as my 670.
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.
