Summary: The Nvidia Shield is a great piece of technology. I would recommend this to anyone who has a geforce card. The reason it got one stars was because it came with scratches and CRUMS OF FOOD ON IT! I kid you not, some one ate crackers over my Shield and put it in the box. I could for give that.
Summary: Works great for both common streaming providers as well as Kodi. Unfortunately, Amazon Prime streaming is not available. I was a little confused by the lack of a context menu button on the rather expensive TV remote (not the game controller), as it is common on other android tv and amazon fire tv...
Pros: Extremely fast, 4k hevc support, etc
Cons: A little pricey, no Amazon, regular (non-gaming) remote lacks context button
Summary: I got this unit mainly to play games from my beast gaming PC in my bedroom at night. The shield does a pretty good job most of the time, but sometimes it messes up requiring me to get up and reboot or troubleshoot at the PC itself when the game doesn't want to connect or start.
overall great product but dont buy it here, way overpriced

Summary: Great product but the actual price by nvidia 399$ and the tablet is on stock at nvidias website every other week or so. Do not buy it here unless the price goes down, just wait, save your money and do not support the people trying to throw you under the bus.
Summary: I got one for my birthday few years ago and played many games on it just to relax, but another amazing feature is that this has location service. I downloaded one of those offline gps from the play store and it became a gps/media center for my car.
Summary: It's a pretty darn nice joystick, although since we use Google Nexus players around the house here and was considering getting an Nvidia version of of the player which already comes with one of these, I probably should have held off buying this controller as I will have 2 of them when I do get the...
Pros: The joystick has a quality feel to it, has a built in mic for doing searches, allows you to use a "cursor" on Android, support for PC (although haven't tried), and automatically turns itself off. Oh, and amazing battery life!
Cons: I took an egg off since the manual says you can press and hold the logo button for 5 seconds or so to power it off, but I have only been able to do this once out of 50 tries. It also wasn't clear that the device won't update it's firmware unless it has enough of a battery charge to not power off ...
Summary: I really enjoyed this product. The reasons are: 1. Its very portable, meaning you can easily carry around to see movies/etc with the benefit that the screen stands on its own, its not like a tablet that you need to buy/put another case so the screen stands ups and stays viewable. 2.
Summary: Don't listen to this CNET review it sounds like the editor has gone into it, hating it from the start. This device really has the potential to do everything from gaming with the latest triple AAA titles to streaming TV channels and watching on demand content.
