    Default Shield Tablets are now shipping :) Have you gotten yours?

    Many folks out there have been waiting for the release of this new tablet from NVIDIA, the NVIDIA Shield Tablet.

    Have you ordered yours? Love to hear from you and your thoughts once you receive it. Feel free to leave your comments and feedback (good or bad).

    Just received mine today. So far, I am really liking it. Will probably be getting the 32gb version next month though. I am amazed at how fast and smooth this is.

    Ordered mine the afternoon of the 29th off Nvidia's site; it shipped Thursday evening and I got it Friday morning just before noon. Really nice so far, and battery life seems to be matching my old 1st Gen Nexus 7 for casual use, and I'm not getting the huge off the cliff battery drop when playing something intense like I did with the Galaxy note 8. Only issue I'm finding so far is that the wireless performance is flaky, which others on the nvidia boards have reported as well; hopefully something a software patch can fix. Otherwise a pretty fine tablet.

    I too own an XBOX 360 and am a average to above average gamer. I think if your looking for something that will handle both worlds, being used as a tablet and also a gaming device then you can't go wrong here.

    If you do decide to take the plunge please come back after you have spent a little time with it and share your feedback

    Honestly I can't see my self playing games on it really. Maybe MTG but no full fps games or anything maybe just maybe Gta but again doubtful. I was going to get nexus 7 but this one seems like it might win

    Don't forget if you have a computer with a supporting GE Force card the tablet has options to take advantage of this like streaming games and much more.

    But as you said it does make quite the argument to consider as a day to day tablet

    This thing is sold out everywhere again. Either they pulled stock because of all the issues, sold out, or just didn't make enough.
