great catch

Ordered, knew it was worth waiting a bit, cheeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeers

bought mine when they came back in stock a few weeks ago.
superb kit... loving mine to bits.
my advice is to get a glass screen protector and a nice case. I can vouch for the nvidia one which is really nice.

looking for the stylus pen now.

Now let's hope the Shield TV comes back into stock and is not ridiculously priced.

I also bought the Nvidia case. It is expensive, but it looks great and the magnets are really strong.

This is tempered glass screen protector i bought and i have no complaints if anyone is looking for one:

Love this tablet! Always used to get buffering watching videos on previous tablets. This runs flawlessly!

Isn't this RRP? Although I appreciate it has been OOS.

Personally, I hated mine and got rid after 3 months, but some like it.

It was the RRP, but Amazon upped the price a few weeks back. £20 more or something like that.

The big issue is the Screen on Time for me. I am seeing about 4 hours of SOT, which is not amazing.

Also no Wireless AC and it comes with no charger

Thanks for this. I have bought it and now going to check it out after all the hype from the other deal.

Reading the description is sold as the ultimate tab for gamers but only has 2GB of RAM. No good for people who like to switch between games then?

I can't really comment as i just play a game at a time, and close it down when finished with it.

3Gb of Ram would be desirable though alright

I bought this recently and it's amazing, so glad I did. Got it when the price went up but did flubit on it. So if you flubit it on this price...Wow, maybe you could get it for £130?

why oh why did they make the internal memory 16GB I know you can add an sd card but seriously why?

Amazon only matched the price from other retailers, I would suggest to buy from them to keep them in the business..

eg. BT shop offers 2,1% TCB currently which is extra £3 shop.bt.com/pro…tml

Never owned a tablet but thinking of buying 1. Anybody know of anything cheaper or this about the price I should be looking at paying?

Hot - but why do they bother describing it as "4K Ultra-HD Ready" when it's only got a standard Full HD screen? Is anybody going to actually connect this up to a 4K monitor? Looks like a decent upgrade to my 7" Nexus though.

The way i think about it, is the Geforce streaming, Geforce now and games that will only play on the K1 or the Shield TV, is the icing on the cake.

You may get a Tablet for cheaper but you can essentially forget about updates.

It is a solid tablet with gaming functionality, i reckon

Can anybody recommend a decent case for this? I just got this and want a decent case for it but there's loads out there-which is good? Thanks!

Agree, coming from a Lenovo that did 11-12 hours I struggle to get 5 hours even with the brightness on minimum.

Thin side bezels are also a pain as your fingers/palm touch the screen.

I think that it's worth considering the Asus ZenPad S 8.0 Z580C at this price point...

Your missing a massive point, the Shield gets regular updates and will continue to and is designed for gaming if you have a Nvidia GPU you can stream full games to it something the Asus wont do. After owning the Zenfone 2 i wouldn't touch another Asus tablet or phone. The phone had a issue from new wouldnt charge to 100% so had to go back for new motherboard and the worst thing is updates you dont get any and the fact that this is a Atom CPU the same as the Zenfone 2 i wouldn't touch it, the shield is head and shoulders better Asus should stick to what they do best and stay away from phones and tablets. I have the Shield TV and love it Kodi runs flawlessly on it.

The only point I made was that the two devices are a similar price. I could list several attributes of the ZenPad; for example, it's higher screen resolution, that are 'better' than the Shield. However, I don't presume to know what peoples actual requirements are - so I highlighted the alternative and leave it to them to make a comparison based on their own needs.

P.S. I own two Shield TVs and run Plex - because it's much better than Kodi (for my requirements)

After a family tablet around this price point. Would this be the best option?

Ha I'm returning mine I paid £170, Amazon won't price match it costs £3.99 to return. £16.01 fellas kChing

This is worth considering

hotukdeals.com/dea…656

Lots of oomph for the money and dual boot (or just use Android)


yay, just ordered

hmm I have a pixel c and I'm tempted to buy this, help me

Ahh, I'd jump on this if the Nintendo NX didn't have the potential to fulfil my tablet needs. Waiting.
