Very powerful, and screen is amazing, speakers are loud and clear.
Quite large for a portable.
I bought the SHIELD about a month ago, and I am quite enjoying the experience. With the latest update  you can make any android game work on SHIELD. Streaming games works pretty good, and a 4ghz network connection isn't necessarily required, as a regular connection works fine. As long as you have a decent connection to the internet you can stream games from anywhere as long your PC is on or in hibernation mode. I would recommend it to someone who has aGTX 650 ti or better, as you need one to tap the reason for purchasing it. I would also recommend it someone who was about to buy a GTX 650 ti or better, like I was when I bought it.

Innovative, allows u to play PC games anywhere
Not all PC games have Support
Does everything it is supposed to do and a bit more. I can play any game really on here. Many games require keyboard/mouse but can still be played by using the touch screen. There are apps That let u take control of your desktop so this can actually function as a computer and you can access ANYTHING from your computer from anywhere as long as there is an internet connection

Ps1 emulation!!!!! GPS!!!! Stream Pc Games! nintendo ds emulation!!!!! Custom button mapping for android in screen controls!
not an extremely powerful gpu, Not a'lot of games support the shields controls without Button Mapping, Some games are laggy
However with all of the pros and cons I mentioned, I would Highly recommend this product do to all of the things you can do with it, I've had it just over a week now and its unreal the types of things you can use this for until you actually get it in your hands and mess with it, I watched reviews on tested and they said the gamepad was hard on the wrist's which it isn't, I play this from the time i get home from work until the time I go to bed and I never found My wrist's hurt once, I never messed with this button mapping yet but it seems to work great,, Biggest seller for me is the emulators play ps1 nes snes dos mame n64 dreamcast  all in your hand at 60 fps and even upscaled hard to beat that! Thanks Ryan

-Great display
-Access to entire Android app catalog
-Playing Steam games over GameStream
-A little heavy
-Sometimes GameStream gets laggy, but it improves with each update
-Controller layout isn't as ergonomical as today's console controllers
-Depending on a game's controller support, you may still have to go to your PC to perform certain tasks
I bought this so I could play Steam games anywhere in the house, and it serves this purpose. Some games don't have full controller support, so you sometimes have to go to your computer to use the mouse and keyboard to get the game started or to quit, etc, but this issue is being worked out more and more as PC games fully support game pads.

The screen is also really nice so it can be used as a general Android device. The screen is so clear that although it might look silly to someone watching, you could read a book on it.

I didn't buy this to play Android games, so I can't speak to that experience, but it is a powerful unit, so I imagine if you like Android games, this device will run all of them great.

control like xbox360 controller
good feeling on hand
micro usb for more memory
a lot of game (android and pc)
- too heavy (579 grams)
- 5 inch 720P screen
- no charging via usb, only with ac
- expensive price
I wanted so bad this console game because i play only PC game and android game (Samsung S4 & nexus 10). But the controller feeling it a must for portable game (android).

I recommend this console for someone want to play anywhere PC game or android game!

price is a bit expensive...
