This review is from: NVIDIA SHIELD - The Ultimate Gaming Portable Designed for Serious Gamers
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.
