I got some "Bonuses"...?

Michael W. Capehart, Amazon
7 August 2014
  • Summary: Came in better shape than advertised. Was certainly used, as it had the previous owners Google account still on it, and logged in. I wiped it right away, but a less scrupulous person could have done serious damage. Also, had a Micro SD card already in the system from the previous owner, with some... less than family friendly content on it. Wiped that immediately, then got rid of the card.

Good, not great

James E Donn, Amazon

  • Summary: I bought this to control my AR Drone, because I like the analog sticks and it will get twice the distance than with an IOS device. The Free Flight App is not fully featured, which is a bummer but not the fault of Nvidia. I tried a few of the big title Apps, and they are pretty fun. I am just not blown away by it. I noticed that many Apps have a problem connecting to Google servers to check in and I had to clear the cache on a few of them to get them to work properly.

Amazing gadget

  • Summary: I purchased this at a gamestop because i had some store credit there. Anyway, this thing is awesome. I initially thought this thing would be a paperweight when it was announced. It seems Nvidia has listened to customers and gamers and has put out alot of cool updates and things for the Shield. I got it at the reduced price of $199. This thing is very hard to pass up at that price. It's got a tegra 4 people! It has run every game i have thrown at it buttery smooth.

Impressive device

Vallian "-=V=-", Amazon

  • Summary: What I like about it: Streams certain games from the PC to the device with no lag. This is just amazing, PC power gaming right in the palm of your hands. NVidia Grid works just fine from Camptown, PA. I tried each of the games posted on it and they all worked great. In case you haven't heard of it, Grid streams PC games from a server which I believe is in California. So yeah, that's pretty wild. Controller is compatible with lots of Android games.

Nice but would make the Shield 2 a little different...

Stuff77, Amazon
21 January 2014
  • Summary: First off it's heavy, too much so. Laying in bed having a quick play of whatever makes you want to hold the Shield up in the air and the weight puts strain on your hands and wrists. Second, if only they could have gone with the Xbox controller layout and switched the D-Pad and the Analog stick somehow. With the bulk and weight it's difficult to work one for moving and the other for looking while still hitting shoulder buttons and triggers.

AWESOME!!!!!!

SPFC63, Amazon

  • Summary: This is a kick butt Android Gaming System. Only have a few Flaws with it though 1: Needs more Storage Space. 16GB???? Come on. How about 32GB or 64GB??? 2: Needs a way to have a Select Button for those Games/Emulators that require it like ePSXe, PPSSPP and others. Other than that, I love how I can make my own Mappings for the Controller for those Games that require everything On Screen which is dumb. Some Mappings are kind of hard to do or figure out though.

Heavy Hitter

JGonzalez, Amazon
19 December 2013
  • Summary: I titled this review "heavy hitter" because I think the phrase covers both my biggest complaint as well as my highest praise. Major Complaint: It is HEAVY. I know many people say they get used to its weight, but I never have. I cannot play for any longer than 2 hours, if that. However, I rarely have the time to play it longer than an hour at a time, so I'm not all that concerned with the 2 hour limitation.

Great for the equipped PC Gamer

  • Summary: You may have read other reviews about the Nvidia Shield before making it here to mine. What you'll see other reviewer's saying is that the Nvidia Shield is a nitch item. I'd have to agree with this claim. Its primarily a device to play your PC games on, and you have to own a lot of high-end hardware to use it properly. Let's talk about the requirements and about how it performs outside of the requirements.
