Nvidia Shield Repairability Score: 6 out of 10 (10 is easiest to repair)

Durable design will stand up to regular backpack-toting.

Modular design means lower repair costs, because small parts can be replaced individually.

The Shield is an all-new type of device, and it feels like there is a lot of room for improvement in repairability. For now, a complicated interior design makes repair and reassembly difficult.

While the hinge seems sturdy, stubborn adhesive makes display repair risky, and involved disassembly makes removal difficult.

The battery is not easily accessible, and will require some tricky disassembly to replace.
