NVIDIA SHIELD Tablet and Controller

21423 ratings | 703362 views
My review of the NVIDIA SHIELD Tablet is here. I love my SHIELD Portable, but this is a completely different beast... Is it a cut above the Portable, or did NVIDIA stray too far from what made the original so great?

actually own both but loving the tablet for better ppsspp performance. both are fosils now so had to buy second hand. Geforce now is a great feature currently free to use the beta annnd can play lots of my steam library.. another thing to mention is battery life the portable ppisses all over the tablet for sheer gaming hours but I do have to say that I lean towards the tablet. the controller is not great but neither is the controller for the portable when compared to the xbox one controller luckily I can wirelessly sync my xbox one controller to the tablet via Bluetooth hope they make another tablet with even better specs not really feeling the shield firestick box thingy as I would just use my pc or the tablet via hdmi

All I've owned for years now is a shield tablet k1 and I can play the witcher 3 blood and wine game of the year edition. Enough said. What other tablet can you do that on?

Well, I own a Xiaomi Mi Pad and an Amkette Evo GamePad Pro 2... The Mi Pad has a lower price, higher screen resolution, worse Android updates (still KitKat WTF), better camera (but sheesh, who clicks on a tablet) and no HDMI output (I don't need that though). Being able to play Half Life 2, Portal, Trine 2, etc. is great. Android titles run well too... And for a 3 year old (soon to be 4 y/o) device that STILL RUNS, I love it. Much better than the Shield Tablet (basically coz of lower price and better screen)

The way Linus compared the Shield Tablet and the Shield Portable made it sound like an Android version of the Nintendo Switch but as two separate products with one where you can't attach the Joy-Cons to and the other has the Joy-Cons permanently attached to it.

This video has been renamed. What he is unboxing is the original Shield tablet, and its a day 0 unboxing as it was released the day this video was posted on July 29, 2014, NOT the Shield tablet k1 as the video is now titled and not released until November 2015

It's funny, Nvidia makes a tablet that can be brought on the go, or used on TV that doesn't do so well since it's a fucking tablet, and is really bad at portable gaming. Then, Nintendo makes a Tablet-like Console that solves the portable issue & isn't running fucking Android. THE FUTURE IS NOW! Thanks to Science! As much as I'm certain that other companies will no doubt duplicate the Switch, I really hope Sony & Microsoft don't try soon enough. I mean, be real here. If the "PS4 Go!" had been announced and released at the same time, or shortly after the Switch, Nintendo would have a dead console on their hands, even if the Switch did EVERYTHING the hypothetical "PS4 Go!" did far better. People are just too stupid to think.

Both ! I'd love that review sample !!! I have the portable and I'd really like to get my hands on the tablet .... 2 player with both players having their own screens on the go ? that would be soo dope. I'm a huge fan of Nvidia and they're killing it when it comes to making new obscure products that no ones ever heard of but blows them away when people see you using it.

Nice thumbnail I can even see your face on the tablet very nice...lol😂

Why the Android Version is so Old

For me Personal Computer rules. Androids (stable os) are good but not good enough concerning versatility. (anything on Android, i can do with my IBM style PC with win or linux, soo why android ?)
Tyler Newlin (1 year ago)
Wow... more than three years after watching this video on the day of upload and never guessed I'd end up with one of these. A friend of mine just gave it to me because he wasn't using it anymore and I gotta say, it's still a great tablet to this day.

So like the switch, but has games?

Tablet for sure !!!!!!! 😊

I have this tablet and I can say it is amazing. It isn't perfect though. It has random lag spikes when browsing the internet or watching YouTube and the screen has kinda bad backlight bleeding in the corners. But the performance that you get from this tablet for the price is amazing. This tablet is like a gtx 1070 in mobile form. Good luck finding anything that will run under 30fps at max settings
How much is this?

Linus, considering the Nintendo Switch and people 3D print controller holders and Ipega comtrollers (until they get a switch), can you revisit this, especially with the borderlands series and minecraft/gamestream

How can you use this effectively? Buy LTE model, buy swing arm tablet mount for your car's dash, mount tablet, play video games wherever the fuck you want or when stuck in a traffic jam. Like me!

My father for me a Shield Tablet for Xmas 2015. I appreciate the effort, since he knows I'm a gamer, but I mostly use it as a backup e-reader to my Kindle.
