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.
One of the only issues I had with the controller, tt disconnects itself every hour or so. I have no explanation why. After checking out some reviews online I saw that a handful of others had similar issues but not many. Possibly an isolated design flaw or just an incident myself and couple others experienced. Also, all of its features are not well documented in the booklet that comes with it and you will need to get online to find out what all it does. The "mouse pad" built into the controller is also a little useless but other than that, it's a pretty solid controller.
What I liked the most about this controller is I could plug it into my PC and use it as a gaming pad for PC games, utilizing the GeForce Experience application. From what I've read is that this will only work with an NVIDIA graphics card. Also, it being connected to Wifi Direct makes it a very snappy and responsive peripheral. I experienced no observable lag when it came to gaming with this thing.
Functionality - The controller works very well for navigating the K1, but also with playing games on with gamestream or moonlight. I notice no lag and with every game I have tested thus far it maps seamlessly. I have also used this with my remote PS4, and it worked again with no issues what so ever, I was fairly impressed. The controller has several options that work in conjunction with your K1. For instance there are volume controls on the controller, as well as a flat silver plate at the bottom of the controller that acts as a mouse. If you decided to play a game from the play store you can map buttons from your controller to said game. As an example I downloaded slither.io and mapped my left joy stick and a button for speed. You do this by pressing and holding the start button which brings up the mapping options.
Feel - The controller feels great in my hands, though I have large hands, it is a little large as for my son but he quikly got used to it, and the overall weight is enough to let you know your holding a controller but not so bad that after several hours of play it bothers you.
Look - The controller has a sleek look, that speaks Nvidia.
Life - Nvidia advertises 40 hours of continuous play. I cant speak to 40 hours but I can say that i have played it for 3 consecutive days without charge and the controller still said it was at full charge (4-8 hours each day).

First off, when the battery is low the reaction time between the controller and the tablet become longer. I was playing crazy taxi (a game that requires quick reflexes) and when I pressed the control stick, it took about a second to register, making me crash into a wall.
Second is the volume controls. Sometimes they don't work properly so if you press volume down it mutes it and if you press volume up it puts it to max.
Third and final, there doesn't seem to be a way to turn it off when you are done with it. You have to turn off the tablet to break connection for the controller to switch off.
Apart from that though, this controller is really good. Most apps recognise it instantly and it works well. Not sure it's worth £50 though, around £30 might be more suited
It's a great controller and it's quality alone is one of the best I've used.
I do however have problems with this controller. Firstly the cost. I feel that £50 for a controller is fairly pricey. Especially considering its use is almost exclusive to a tablet I paid £150 for already. I would like to see the controller nearer £30-35 region. Because I would like to buy another but I can't justify £100 to 2 controllers.
Secondly, compatibility. The controller will work wired or wirelessly with the shield tablet. I know this is what it is intended for and that's fine. When I discovered they released a driver for it to work wired with the PC I was glad. But.. The driver is only downloadable if you have an NVIDIA graphics card. That is extremely unfair that my usage of the controller is limited because of my brand of graphics card. Totally unfair.
Have it for a few months now. No issues
Battery time: played my last game end to end (Lara Croft) on one charge only
Headphone jack: great sound for immersive playing ( better that raising the TV volume!:-)
Touch pad: responsive.
Game play with game streaming: no issues. No latency.
Only con: The middle button triggers the 'OK Google' feature and it's really annoying if you touch it during game play as the game streaming is interrupted. Perhaps there is a way of deactivating this but I have[t found it yet.
