However, it further dawned on me that the only content I *needed* to be able to utilize a tablet for, where Amazon is concerned, are videos and music; and those can be accessed on any Android tablet. So I begun to look for a suitable replacement. At the time, I considered several tablets - the Galaxy Tab S, Galaxy Tab S2, Kindle Fire HD8, and so on. I eventually settled on, and ordered, a Galaxy Tab S, but despite being a very nice tablet, Samsung has had a reputation for barely supporting their tablets for the requisite 18 months.
Having considered the Nvidia Shield Tablet in the past, I'd been seriously interested in it, but not at the price point of $299 at the time; so imagine my surprise when the same tablet (sans stylus and charging cables) was rereleased as the Shield Tablet K1 just 3 days ago. I returned my Galaxy Tab S and ordered the Shield Tablet K1.
Put simply, I believe it is by FAR the best tablet for under $200.
Display: While not *quite* as nice as the one on the Galaxy Tab S, it's nowhere NEAR bad. Accurate color representation, very bright.
Size: It's a bit thicker than some tablets might be - 9.3mm as opposed to the 6mm or so that a Samsung Galaxy Tab S is - but not at all unpleasant to hold.
Build quality: I believe this is, aside from using last year's specs, this is where the bulk of the money was saved.Read more ›
This is a solid tablet and performer. I does suffer some issues after the Android 6.0 upgrade. I believe those will be fixed as more people use it. It comes with nothing but the tablet and a small help pamphlet. No stylus(it does work with this) and no power cord and charger. It was a cost cutting move and its just fine by me. Android 6.0 has a new feature that allows you to choose what to do with the micro sd card you plug in(this will take up to 128gb card). You can either keep it as it always has been, removable memory or you can have Android integrate it into the system memory. When you integrate it, it acts just like the system memory and will store apps, photos, music on it no differently.
This was an Amazon purchase, my girlfriend bought it for me(with my money of course), so it will not show as a verified purchase.
I was in the market for a Android tablet. I had just gotten rid of a Windows Tablet, a Lenovo 8in. It was a fantastic tablet, but windows in anything smaller than a 10 inch screen is just too much. So I started the hunt for an 8 inch tablet. A size I have grown to love for the portability and convenience. I wanted something with some kick. I have know about the K1 for a while, and I knew this was a redesign of the original. I was also eyeballing the Asus Zenpad 8s with the 4GB of memory. In the end, the tightwad in me won and i ordered this product.
First of all, I knew what i was getting. I was getting a tablet that comes with nothing to conserve money. I was okay with this.Read more ›
But if you do take advantage of the Nvidia stuff, you'll be in gaming bliss. I haven't signed up for Nvidia's service but have been able to stream many games from my Steam library without a hitch (obviously, the controller is sold separately). Even graphically demanding games like Batman Arkham knight run nice and steady so long as your network is strong (like from a dual band wireless AC router). Didn't think I'd be big into gaming on my tablet device, but I'm sold.
The only con to this tablet is that they don't give you a single accessory in the box. Nothing. Just the tablet and some warranty materials. You will need to provide your own micro USB charger (the standard for current Android devices). I didn't let this affect my review because because I have like 100 laying around the house and I was aware of the lack of charger going into this purchase.
Compared to other tablets in it's size and price range it performs amazingly well. it's refreshing to see a tablet like this come in with a high res 1920x1200 screen, especially compared to Samsung or Amazon's recent 7 or 8 inch offerings with lower resolutions. I'm mostly using this tablet for watching movies, reading comic books, and web browsing and i'm enjoying the slightly extra size over a 7 inch tablet. Even without using the Nvidia streaming technology that comes with the tablet it functions wonderfully as just a standard Android tablet. I love the stock Android UI as a frequent buyer of Google's Nexus phones, and with NVidia's promise of updating the tablet to Marshmallow before the end of the year it was another plus for me. All the other features are just icing on the cake, as i'm taking advantage of the microSD card slot for extra media storage, the front facing speakers sound great for media playback, and i've already ordered a mini HDMI cable so I can plug in to a TV when necessary.
I do have a few quirks though; initially when first setting up the tablet I had frequent apps lock up or long pauses and lag. These have subsided since then, so I'm not sure the reason.Read more ›
