Over the last few years I have become a big fan of the Nvidia Shield products. It started when I discovered the Shield TV which is sitting alongside my Xbox and PlayStation; it is best on the same chip powering the Nintendo Switch and is Android/Google TV-powered.
Both the Shield TV and the Shield K1 Tablet are consistently showing up in the best tv box and best tablet lists and this a few years after their release which is an achievement in itself.
Another thing that made me become a fan is the lengthy support for the devices by Nvidia (the last Portable update in July 2016, the last K1 Tablet in March 2018, and a couple of weeks ago for the Shield TV) and that’s not counting the unofficial updates created by the community at large.
It’s very sad that too few people heard about the Portable Shield and that when I searched for my dream handheld, I stumble onto it by accident. This is a device that deserves better and I really hope Nvidia will consider making a sequel to it.
