Default Nvidia Shield Unboxing and First look

Hey guys,

In the midst of working on the new show, I had some time to shoot an unboxing and first look of the Nvidia Shield.

As always, constructive criticism is greatly appreciated!

So far so good Matt. Maybe fade the music at the start and wipe your drool off the lens. Hehe.

Looks good though. Will tune in once you can give more info and impressions.

Not a bad review.. few nit picky things for me..

1) Glare off your glasses is distracting
2) Don't use scissors! Get a small knife or pre-open the stuff before you record.

Other than that.. good job.

There's an ultra high frequency noise that I hear on your video. I'd guess around 18kHz. Being sensitive to such frequencies I can't watch the video with my headphones on.

Yeah, Thought Matt was gonna blow after he opened the box.

Just updated my driver and was looking at the HW compatibility list for fun and found that streaming is supported on GTX 650's and above. So you may want to revise that.

I realized that after :)
I'll make the needed corrections and stuff when I do my follow up :)

Thanks for all the comments guys!

Looks good, just may want to try to fix the glare that shows up on your glasses from whatever screen is behind the camera as it's visible and could be distracting to some during the video.

I've figured out the Glare is actually from my studio lighting. I'm going to try to re-position for the next set of stuff i do :)
