5 out of 5 eggs Best Android Tablet? Best Android Tablet. 08/03/2014

This review is from: NVIDIA® SHIELD™ Tablet (WiFi)

Pros: - Blazing fast Tegra K1 SoC with Kepler graphics
- Great speakers
- MicroSD expansion slot
- Good battery life
- Crisp 1920x1200 8" display
- DirectStylus 2 works very well - it's easily the best passive stylus out there right now
- Stock Android KitKat with prompt updates
- Unparalleled gaming options (Android, Shield Hub, Gamestream, nvidia GRID)

Cons: - Screen color temperature a little warm. Switching to native screen space instead of sRGB helps.
- Ports are jammed too closely together. I use a 1/4" to 3.5mm adapter to connect my headhphopnes, and there's not enough room to plug in a miniHDMI when an oversize headphone jack is connected (it works fine if standard headphone jack is used).

Other Thoughts: The nvidia Shield Tablet is the Jack of all Trades, and master of several. It is hands down the best Android tablet for gamers, but even if you don't game (whether on Android, PC or Gamestream), its convergence of performance and features (microSD, DirectStylus, great speakers, stock Android, mini-HDMI out with console and mirror modes) makes it one of the most rounded and versatile Android tablets out there.

Battery life has also been impressive so far. After playing Cytus (Android game) for 3.5 hrs with wi-fi on, I still had 47% battery life. I've been holding out for an Android tablet with the right mix of features and performance until now, and nvidia checked all the right boxes with this one.

4 out of 5 eggs DDR3-1600 RAM. Works (better) than advertised 04/02/2014

This review is from: HyperX Black 8GB (2 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Desktop Memory Model KHX16C9B1BK2/8X

Pros: Motherboard detected it as DDR3-1600 RAM and ran it at 1.5V instead of the 1.65V advertised. Default timings were looser than spec, but ran flawlessly at rated 9-9-9-24 1T timings@1.5V with manual settings. No tall headspreaders = universal compatibility.

Cons: None.

CORSAIR CX series CX500M 500W ATX12V v2.3 SLI Ready CrossFire Ready 80 PLUS BRONZE Certified Modular Active PFC CP-9020059-NA Power Supply
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Modular, quiet at idle and low load. 2x8-pin PCIE power plugs. Single 12V rail. Haswell-ready.

Cons: Noisy under heavy load (~300W est.), could use a couple more SATA power plugs.

Other Thoughts: My CX500M is very quiet at idle, but under gaming loads (i5 4670K + GTX 760), the PSU fan whirrs up and become the single noisiest component in my build. By comparison, my older PC P&C Silencer Mk III 550W unit is much quieter under similar loads, and that's even with my Corsair unit in a padded case and the PC P&C in a non-insulated case. Would recommend this for low-powered builds only, for which it is a great option.
