If you like the idea of gaming on your TV in your living room the Shadow Ghost (£109.95), a new streaming box that brings the power of a high-end Windows PC to your home office or living room without any of the hardware, feels specifically made for gamers like me, those who want to play on PC without having to do any of the technical work.

Shadow Ghost works with all your peripherals and makes connections easy via Bluetooth and Wi-Fi. It supports resolutions up to 4K UHD 60Hz through HDMI 2.0.

Like the review of the Shadow service, you don’t need the Shadow Ghost to use the cloud service.

Shadow Ghost contains only the necessary hardware to log you into your Shadow account and connect your favourite accessories (gamepad, keyboard, mouse,etc.).

You just plug your power and HDMI cable and the internet cable or login via WI-FI if you like. The whole device is completely silent when running at all times, its good value for the money but only if you need it.

So for this time, I won’t give it a score because you don’t need it to use the service but it is a beautiful design device.
