This review is from: NVIDIA® SHIELD™ Portable
Pros: 720p Screen at 5" looks amazing
Built in speakers sound great
12ish hour battery life is ridiculous
VERY solid construction
Didn't even have to set up game stream, just connected to home network and selected my computer, started streaming Bioshock Infinite instantly.
Emulates SNES, N64, GBA, and DS with ease.
Miracast takes no set up either, i accidentally started streaming youtube to my roommate's TV with it.
Cons: No webcam
Other Thoughts: I love this thing, streaming my PC games to it while i lie in bed is great (if extremely lazy).
It is the perfect all in one emulation device as well, i have thousands of hours worth of ROMS loaded on it to play.
Pros: I have this thing overclocked to 4.7Ghz on an ASUS Z87 Pro V Edition motherboard, it screams like a bat out of hell.
Cons: The included heatsink was anemic at best but i knew that going in. If you are buying a K part you had better have better than stock cooling to go with it. I would have liked to have been able to buy this without the stock heatsink and maybe have saved another $5.
Other Thoughts: Make sure to buy a Z chipset if you are buying a K processor, otherwise you are wasting a perfectly overclockable processor on a non-overclockable motherboard.
Case - Corsair 650D
PSU - Corsair CX750M
Mobo - ASUS Z87 Pro V Edition
CPU - Intel Core i5 4670K 3.4Ghz (OCed to 4.7Ghz)
RAM - Patriot Sector 5 2x4GB 1600Mhz
GPU - ASUS GTX660-DC2O-2GD5

Pros: After diagraming out the fan placement in my case, it took about 5 minutes for it to auto-overclock my Core i5 4670K to 4.7Ghz.
Cons: Didn't come packed in $100 bills.
Other Thoughts: I love this board, i'm never buying anything other than ASUS ever again.READ FULL REVIEW
