This Prime Day Nvidia Defend deal makes me assume I picked the flawed damned time to purchase one other one
For the PC gamer, this yr’s Amazon Prime Day offers have been fairly stellar. There are even graphics card offers (opens in new tab), although given the relative pricing proper now we would most likely nonetheless advocate you picked an AMD card over an Nvidia one (opens in new tab). Which is a little bit of a disgrace provided that GeForce GPUs work amazingly effectively with the Nvidia Defend, permitting you to stream video games all through your house, out of your massive rig to your massive display screen TV.
The Nvidia Defend is my absolute favourite streaming gadget, and never solely is it a robust Android TV tube and an excellent PC-to-TV gaming machine, however it’s additionally one of the best ways to take pleasure in GeForce Now at 4K HDR (opens in new tab) ranges.
I really like the Defend a lot that I just lately purchased a second one to plug into my 4K projector to take pleasure in high-res motion pictures splattered throughout my partitions and play The Quarry in mighty big-o-vision. So just lately, in actual fact, that I am irritated I did not wait a bit longer because the Nvidia Defend is the most cost effective it is ever been at simply $125 at Amazon (opens in new tab) at this time.
There have been a couple of reductions on the Defend earlier than, however by no means this low. And, whereas it might be comparatively outdated in tech phrases, it is usually up to date and continues to be on the chopping fringe of high-resolution, high-fidelity streaming. Whether or not that is out of your Plex server, Netflix, or Amazon Prime.
Nvidia just lately upgraded the distant, too, which is nice as a result of the again continuously falls off my different one as my toddler calls for extra ‘boring stuff’ on YouTube and hurls it in opposition to the couch. The brand new one clicks into place making it far safer. The buttons really feel extra stable as effectively, which may solely be a great factor.
However even whether it is cheaper than ever, I most likely will not purchase a 3rd. Even when the low cost is even larger within the UK. Dammit.
