ProCase Premium Folio Cover case
You'll love the refined feel of the ProCase Premium Folio Cover case and how well it protects the NVIDIA Shield tablet without adding a lot of bulk or weight — you'll love the price, too: under $20 for a leather case.
Its exterior is made from leather and the inside is made of a soft material to prevent scratches. The cover folds into a stand that can be secured in numerous angles for comfortable viewing or gaming. Its elastic strap closure secures the lid when the tablet is not in use — it also turns the tablet's screen off when closed and turns it on when opened.
If you're looking for a case that's made of leather, supports auto sleep and wake, and that's priced affordably, then the ProCase Premium Folio Cover case is the one you want.
NVIDIA SHIELD Tablet Cover
NVIDIA's own Shield Tablet cover is made for its tablet, so there's no question about whether or not it will fit.
It's made with a polyurethane faux leather exterior and a microfiber interior for preventing scratches. Its lid has a magnetic closure and can fold over to become a stand for a viewing, gaming, or using the keyboard.
The NVIDIA Shield Tablet cover supports auto sleep and wake, which means that when you close the cover, the tablet's screen turns off, and when you open the cover, it turns on.
If you want a case for your NVIDIA Shield tablet that you know will fit, then choose the NVIDIA Shield Tablet cover.
Poetic NVIDIA Shield Tablet Case
The Poetic NVIDIA Shield Tablet case is a heavy-duty protective case built to shield your tablet from impacts and dings.
Its body is composed of food grade silicone, which is very easy to keep clean — all you need to do is rinse it off with water and wipe it with a clean cloth. It has rounded edges that make it very comfortable to hold and a raised bezel along the edges of the screen to protect it from scratches.
There's also this other cool thing about the NVIDIA Shield Tablet case — it's got built-in channeling chambers designed to direct sound from the speakers up toward your face so that you can hear it better. Isn't that awesome?
If you're looking for a heavy-duty protective case that's easy to keep clean and that helps to direct the sounds of the speakers toward you, then the Poetic NVIDIA Shield Tablet case is a great option.
Fintie SmartShell case
The Fintie SmartShell case is a combination of style and protectiveness. Amazon reviewers love how it feels and looks, and how it protects while remaining lightweight. It also comes in a variety of colors to suit every taste.
Its cover is made of polyurethane synthetic leather, with a soft microfiber interior, and a hard polycarbonate back shell. This keeps its weight down while protecting the device from scratches and dings.
The cover turns into a stand for propping up the tablet to read, watch videos, or play games. It has a magnetic closure and will turn the tablet's screen off when it is closed and turn it back on when it is open.
If you're looking for a case that is colorful, lightweight, and protective, then the Fintie SmartShell case might be the one for you.
ProCase SlimSnug case
The ProCase SlimSnug case is slim, form-fitting, and yet protects the NVIDIA Shield tablet quite well. You'll love how its texture makes it easier to hold with one hand and how it protects the corners.
The case itself is composed of a hard polycarbonate shell back, a synthetic leather cover, and the microfiber interior. It comes in many bright colors, and when the cover is closed, it turns the tablet's screen off — when it's open, it turns the tablet's screen on.
If you're looking for a form-fitting case that is light, protective, and comes in bright colors, then the ProCase SlimSnug case is right up your alley.
Been using the Fintie SmartShell case since I got my K1. Works great and can't beat the price. Posted via the Android Central App
Same. it's the only one I can recommend.
Wish the article was relevant to a product you could still buy... Posted via the Android Central App
You can still buy the K1. Correct me if I'm wrong, but I think the dimensions of the original model and the K1 are exactly the same. Any of these cases should work just as well with the current model.
It's talking about the SHIELD TABLET K1, which is still available.
I think they are referring to the fact that the K1 is sold out everywhere and has been for a while. Only place I've seen it listed is 3rd party vendors on Amazon who are trying to capitalize on its scarcity. So while technically NVidia hasn't announced its discontinuation, it's not presently available for purchase.
Save your time and get the Fintie. The only drawback about it is it makes the volume and power buttons more difficult to press, because they're located in a fairly deep "valley" in the case.
