Taylor, Hertford Mature Gamer

Score 10.0/10
Good points:
Game streaming from PC is amazing. It needs some initial setup but once it's done there are almost no limits. Keyboard/mouse can be connected too.
Bad points:
Touch sensitive button sometimes turned the device on/off accidentally.

jamie, Hull Mature Gamer

Score 7.0/10
Good points:
The possibility of streaming games at 4k while also having apps is great.
Bad points:
The main downfall of this is the controller compatibility with non compatible games, even games like fire watch, need for speed and Ravel. It just didn't work. I've no idea why you can't plug in a xbox 360 controller in the back and use that instead but it won't. Also the 4k streaming isn't as straight forward as simply selecting it from your game settings, this feature is still in Beta.

Rachel, Solihull Casual gaming fan

Score 10.0/10
Good points:
Fantastic little box, big difference to the amazon tv that I was using before this. Would recommend this over any of the other android/tv boxes I have used up to yet.
Bad points:
Would have liked the controller and remote included, but can always add the remote later if needed.

Saad, Glasgow Casual gaming fan

Score 8.0/10
Good points:
1-Fast & responsive (amazing).

2-Very nice design.

3-Good built & picture quality.

4-Easy firmware upgrades.

5-Working fabulous with Youtube & Kodi.
Bad points:
1-Not supporting mouse that comes with dongles (no option to personalise the buttons manually).

-You can move the pointer around on the main screen but the buttons are not working (but inside Kodi some are working).-

2-The controller's battery life is limited (with light use about 16 hours), Nvidia claimed that it is 40 hours.

3-The touchpad is not working as a mouse (I purchased this device to use it as a tv box not just as a gaming platform.

If you want a gaming platform go for Xbox one or PS4 (or wait for few weeks to buy the new Xbox one & PS4 that support 4k games playing).

4-Very expensive accessories & no option to choose a remote rather than a controller.

5-You need to press the start button on the platform to turn the device on (if you chose to shut down rather than sleep).

(Xbox one & PS4 will start from the controller if the device is on shutdown state)

-You will face a problem if you have children & want to put it on a hard to reach place (in this case you need to put it in sleep rather than shut it down-

6-No integrated web browser (when you voice search something you will only get youtube results.
(they included apps results in the latest firmware but it's not very accurate like amazon's voice search).

7-Plex is not able to natively work with lots of extensions (You can use plex app on Kodi and you will not need to encode anything & everything will work perfectly).

But in this case you can use any other TV box if that was your aim.

7-No multi tasking (even the cheapest & slowest chinese tv boxes have a multitasking !).

Come on Nvidia!
