Engadget Review

The Shield Wireless Controller is a solid gamepad in its own right, outfitted with plenty of useful bells and whistles for interacting with your NVIDIA devices. But the high price tag leaves a sting since you can't use it with anything but those NVIDIA devices.

Pros
  • Feels good in hand
  • Lower latency than Bluetooth controllers
  • Clickable mousepad makes menus easy to browse
Cons
  • Mousepad is not very sensitive
  • Built-in microphone is oversensitive
  • Only works with NVIDIA's hardware
  • Must be purchased separately
