Same day delivery! Safe and secure! Expect night delivery though!
Highly recommended if you have a big library of STEAM/VALVE games! I was torn between the Rog Ally and Steam Deck but eventually went with this one since I wanted a Steam Deck ever since Valve released it a year ago! Only had it for a few days, but hopefully it'll last for years and Valve will continue support!
- DID NOT INCLUDE FREE SCREEN PROTECTOR
-Lots of Deck-ready Steam games, but still also lots of unsupported ones, so you're fave game might not be ready but you can still try!
- You can hear the fan noise most of the time if you're playing graphics heavy games, but my pc is noisier so yeah, tolerable. Read and watched some reviews Rog Ally was quiet but had some issues when opening/playing games
- Loading is quite long sometimes that I thought the device already hanged, but apparently, just horrible wait time
- Not recommended for those with small hands I guess?
Deliver was fast and the packaging was well secured
