This review is from: NVIDIA SHIELD Carrying Case

Pros: It holds the Shield nicely!

Cons: It costs way too much.

Other Thoughts: Not a lot of options in this dept, so the price tag is understandable if not laudable.

5 out of 5 eggs 12/25/2013

This review is from: NVIDIA SHIELD Portable

Pros: Hardware (Quad Core + Tegra 4)
Screen - Games look great
Controller - As nice as any pc/console controller I've used.
Control Mapper - Easy to setup games made for touchscreen only
Price point for the hardware is phenomenal

Cons: Limited selection of droid games actually made for this.

Other Thoughts: Gamestream can be a bit laggy - Sometimes only annoyingly so, others unplayably so - I need to test some different router / adapter combinations as this may not be the Shield's fault. Nvidia recommends wired networking for the desktop and high performance dual band router. I have neither of these, so again, may not be the Shield's fault.

Emulator selection for Android + My collection of ROMs on top of the other features makes this likely most versatile handheld gaming setup available.

Overall I am very satisfied with my purchase of this very nifty little toy.

Microsoft Windows 8.1 - Full Version (32 & 64-bit)

Pros: Better pricing/tier model than Win7
Latest software & hardware support
Once configured seems to run just like Win 7

Cons: "Start Menu" is awful (but you probably knew that anyway)
Didn't like my nearly new Wireless PCI Card. Would just randomly freeze (and I mean completely freeze. Hard Reboot the only way around it)

Other Thoughts: Some people probably like making their Desktop more like their smartphone. I am always looking for ways to make my smartphone more like my desktop. I probably could have done without this particular upgrade. YMMV.
