anyone here owns one? how was your experience?

i own one and it has been a good tool for me. i read ebooks with it, play android games and emulated games especially Pokemon games in NDS. very powerful tablet. battery life is mediocre. this tablet has been plagued by issues, (QC aint reliable) .there was also a recall due to battery issues but the whole process went smooth for me. Hopefully they will update its OS to android 6.0. this might be the only nvidia shield tablet that will exist because this was not profitable to the company and maybe even cost them more due to recall. who knows.

Anyway, I don't have the Shield Tablet, but I do have the Shield Portable.

It was awesome at first... but then the appeal started to wear off. I got it setup so I could stream my PC games when I was away from home... but I never really had the opportunity/need to do that.

Still it's really cool tech!

Also, I used a Samsung Galaxy Tab Pro 8.4 for all my tablet needs tongue But it mostly collects dust because I use my phone a lot lol

JJ, you have any intent on getting VR headsets? Just curious, because I wonder if VR would work with the Shield, or if your could use the shield with a really heavy VR Cardboard :P

i dont think that technology is fully available now and i also doubt that it will be implemented for tablets (or at least for now. i dont see any real application for it and by that time there will be more powerful ones)

amazon would be fine too. you will sell it pretty fast considering it is in mint condition. how much did you pay for it originally? you could actually sell it more. depends on you really. but there are people out there who will pay for it.
