Valve Steam Deck reviewed by wccftech
Review Valve Steam Deck by wccftech
Verified titles play without any hassle
Comfortable for longer periods of play (if not a bit heavy)
Aggressively priced for the hardware offered
Limit frame rates and TDP to extend battery life at a single button press
Dock and expand your experience to that of a traditional computer
Linux-based Proton support handles games well, assuming they're compatible
Software support and compatibility can only continue to expand before it's in the hands of consumers
Very small selection of Verified titles available at launch
At nearly a pound and a half, this is one beefy portable console (50% heavier than a Nintendo Switch)
Battery life doesn't come close to the promised 'eight hours' for most instances
Experimentation necessary to configure many titles for ideal gameplay
Some external services and launchers have difficulty being compatible with Steam Deck
No on-screen keyboard for the Linux backend, requiring an external keyboard to set up and configure the terminal (Valve promised a patch after launch)

Review Valve Steam Deck by TestingBuddies
Unbeatable value for money.
Enough power for current AAA games
Various input options
User-friendly interface
His remarkable
Good microphones
Flexible operating system
easy to repair
Good battery life with the appropriate settings.
Average screen
Problem with the anti-cheat software in certain online games.
Access to alternative gaming platforms like the Epic Games launcher is only possible through detours.
The 64GB version does not have enough storage space for current AAA games.
The volume at full load is slightly disturbing.

Review Valve Steam Deck by Tablette Tactile
A true gaming PC in the palm of your hand.
Fully repairable and customizable machine
Can serve as a Linux tablet
Quite a lot of power under the hood.
Regular updates of Steam OS
Top platform for retro-gaming.
Limited autonomy
HD screen only
Some games are incompatible with Steam OS.
Ask for a little elbow grease to be used at 100%.
Bulkier than a classic handheld console.

Versatile uses including desktop mode
Supremely portable, extendable 3hr gaming battery
Affordable options with potential for upgrades
Over 3,000 playable titles
Fan curve patch fixed the fan whine
Long list of (especially older) games unlikely to become verified
Excludes plenty of genres if used without a dock
Figuring out gamepad layouts can be a pain
Only real plus for the higher priced model is storage size
