Received my Nvidia Shield Wireless controller today via Amazon. Amazon shipped it very fast, which I appreciate. It came in a well packaged box with a Shield USB to Mini USB cable. Was a little disappointed not to receive another wall charger with it, but at least it came with the cable.

I have been testing out the controller, it feels comfortable and weighs about the same as a PS3 controller. It synced up immediately to the Shield Tablet, super easy.

The buttons and triggers feel good and the responsiveness is great. Was able to do very well in Super Hexagon due to the responsiveness and low latency. And if you know Super Hexagon, then you know how important a responsive and accurate input device can be.

The controller also has home, back and play touch buttons at the top along with a Nvidia button that takes you straight into the Shield hub. The volume buttons under the joysticks are nice, but can be tricky to use at first and take practice, otherwise it jumps to mute.

The headphone jack on the controller is a really nice touch, next to the micro USB port which is how you charge it. It also has a microphone which I haven't had a chance to try out yet.

My only complaint is that the touchpad doesn't track well due to the low tracking sensitivity and small track area. Also the surface isn't slick enough to prevent the friction from slowing down my thumb creating inconsistent movements.

Overall this is a very good controller, and beats trying to use a PS3/4 controller. The battery life seems to be very good, but I won't know for awhile and will update this review after testing further.

If your debating a controller for the shield tablet, and plan to play games / emulators you should do yourself a favor and pickup this controller. It will make your gaming experience easier and more enjoyable. Well worth the investment.

Quality on par with the Xbox one controller. It looks a bit bulky, but in the hand feels comfortable. Wifi direct connection is head and shoulders above any Bluetooth controller for low latency. Very quick auto connection to my shield tablet. I also love the volume control buttons on the controller - very convenient.

Finally a controller for Android with the same quality as xbox/playstation! Console mode rocks with this controller. My kids are enjoying Trine 2 (need to get them a second controller though… come on Amazon.. get more in stock!!) and I am having a blast playing HL2 again.

- Feel: It looks big but once I got it in my hands I knew right away it was going to be one of the most comfortable controllers I have ever used (including xbox1/ps4).
- Build quality is excellent. Feels really solid in my hands.
- Headset jack: This is a huge feature. It allows me to play at night without disturbing the family
- Battery life: Seems amazing and there is a battery indicator on the tablet in the status bar (saw a review that said there wasn't an indicator, which is wrong)
- Voice search when in console mode and sitting back on the couch is a killer feature!
- Touchpad: I saw some negative comments on the touchpad but it really came in handy for some games that require you to mouse over to close an ad or select a checkbox. Without it, console mode would be really difficult. For all other navigation needs the right joystick is the way to go for mouse movement for me. I don’t think the touchpad was meant to replace the joystick for mouse movement.
- Angles on the triggers are really comfortable
- Latency rocks thanks to Wi-Fi (I've had bad experiences with other Bluetooth Android controllers)

- Only con is delivery wait time. Still waiting to be able to order a second controller.

Other Thoughts:
- Would be cool if they add support for Windows PCs (like Xbox controllers)
UPDATE: They added PC support for GeForce PCs a while back

The long wait is over. Amazon has finally sent my controller.
1.The build quality is excellent. Anyone telling you otherwise is a troll. It feels solid in the hands, almost all of the buttons are excellent (except volume rocker), it pairs with the tablet on a dime, there's basically no latency.
2. TouchPad is pretty decent
3. Has headset jack right on the controller
1. I hate the volume rocker. They went with some stupid setup where you get very inconsistent volume adjustments based on how long you hold the button. Tapping minus or plus usually mutes, you have to hold them down to change the volume and sometimes it will still mute the volume by accident.
2. This controller only works with shield devices for the foreseeable future.
3. No rumble? I really wish android controllers had rumble

Other thoughts:
1. I have tiny hands, and this controller has a pretty good feel to it, despite the size.
2. Android navigation with the controller will take some getting used to.
3. So far compatibility with games has been great. It didn't do so well with angry birds, but that game plays well with a touchscreen anyways.
4. Worked well with all the shooters I've tried so far.
5. I'm ordering a second one, I'll update this review once I get to try out some multi-player.
