NVIDIA SHIELD tablet NVIDIA Tegra K1 2 GB Memory 16 GB 8.0
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: - FAST!
- Display is a LOT better than people are giving it credit on other review sites, and I say this as a guy who absolutely abhors Samsung's AMOLED displays
- Feature rich! The stylus and the controller-based console/TV modes are excellently done. They aren't too in-your-face, and don't get in the way of normal operation.
- Great size and weight
- no idiotic android skin
- mini HDMI output
- decent battery life. Not great, but decent. Good enough, for sure. To be expected of gaming hardware

Cons: - quite controller-centric, and Android (as of 4.2+) does N O T play well with bluetooth controllers, so you should definitely pick up the Shield Controller to go with it
- it's bleeding-edge hardware, so a lot of things (like launchers) crash

Other Thoughts: The thing is a splendid little tablet even when it's not being used as a remote gaming machine. The $300 price tag is really nice when you consider you're getting a remote screen for your PC *and* a svelte nvidia Android tablet, too!

AuzenTech  AZT-FORTE  X-Fi Forte 7.1 Low Profile PCI Express Sound Card
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

5 out of 5 eggs The perfect sound card? 05/26/2009

This review is from: AuzenTech AZT-FORTE X-Fi Forte 7.1 Low Profile PCI Express Sound Card

Pros: I simply can NOT speak highly enough about this soundcard. It hasn't been all that long since Creative released their stranglehold on the industry, and it cannot be made more clear that this is a golden era for the sound card industry.

The sound quality of this piece of hardware is insane. I have this hooked up to a home-theater receiver and have my analog surround channels being encoded to DTS at all times, and I also have copious amounts of filtering and upconverting and such happening.

The result? I haven't been so interested in just listening to music since back in the day when Napster made music sharing ridonculously easy. It makes your music sound like new.

Then there's the gaming -- oh man is it immersive. It takes getting used to the level of immersion that this card provides. In a proper 5.1 system, the amount of separation the card provides is fantastic. It's positional enough to make you wonder "was that the game? Or is someone actually behind me?"

Cons: Drivers are large, and hard to find outside of which has a horrendously slow download speed.

Driver panels are slightly laggy, BUT contain enough functionality to make this forgivable.

Other Thoughts: Adding more pros here since I hit the text limit:

There are more bells and whistles on this card than you could fiddle with in a month. The great part is that unlike typical gadget laden systems, these gadgets have real-time sliders that let you compare/contrast real time, and choose how you want them to be -- for example, the stereo upmixer can implement a third channel, or just copy what's in the front two to the back two speakers. The former's better for movies, the latter for music.

Final thoughts? This card will MAKE you an audiophile.
