We haven't made any secret of our love for NVIDIA's SHIELD: it's simply the best stand-alone streaming gadget around. If you still don't have one, go over to Amazon for a lot today.
SHIELD, along with its minimalist remote control and excellent controller (not always included), goes for just $ 1
Note that with NVIDIA's excellent record of software and functionality updates, SHIELD makes a great gift even if you have to sit on it for the better part of a year. Although it is often sold, it is quite rare that the discount becomes so steep.
