NCIX Canada: NVIDIA Shield 32GB Tablet - Now Just $460 + 3 Freebies ($160 Value!)
Get it while you still can: the NVIDIA Shields tablet is currently on sale for just $459.99 and even comes with the following 3 freebies: a cover, a controller and a games coupon with a $29.99 value. Shipping is free as well.
An unlocked version of this tablet is also currently on sale at Newegg for $449.99, down from the original price tag of $499.99. It may be $10 cheaper than at NCIX but it doesn't include all of the freebies, which would have otherwise cost the following amounts:
- NVIDIA Shield tablet cover: $45.99 value
- NVIDIA Shield controller: $69.99 value
- NVIDIA games coupon: $29.99 value
Altogether, that comes up to $145.97 in savings!Let's say you were to get this tablet at Newegg along with all of these products separately, then you would be looking at a $595.96. That's without tax, so can you just imagine how much more you would have to pay?
Arguably, you wouldn't necessarily need all those items but let's face it, a cover is extremely useful and so is the included games coupon. Plus, if you plan to use this tablet to game, then the controller is a must-buy as it will significantly enhance your game play.
To get to the tablet itself though, it features an 8" screen that is 1920 x 1200 and is full HD. It also boasts 2.2GHz ARM Cortex A15 CPU and 2GB RAM.
The cool part about this tablet is that you could even transform it into a console by hooking it up to a TV and playing your favourite game that way with the use of the controller.
On PC Mag, this tablet garnered a fab rating of 4/5 stars with this as the bottom line:
If you need a tablet with always-on connectivity, the Nvidia Shield Tablet should be at the top of your list whether you use it for gaming or not.
As you can see, you don't necessarily need to be a gamer to get it. If you don't anticipate playing any games, then you could always try to sell the remote and the games coupon. You might want to keep the cover as it's flexible enough to be molded to stand in a variety of positions -- definitely very handy, especially for watching TV shows or movies!
