can you install any app from google play like you can with chromecast? or are you locked in with what it comes pre-installed with? btw, hulu isn't worth paying for. they still don't have surround sound. they're a joke. I personally don't see anything else worth buying over a chromecast. since you can watch anything on it that you can install on your phone. I only wish it had a way to plug in the network instead of wifi. wifi is still slower than a wired connection. I do get a full 250mbps with 5g wifi but being wired still seems to work better.

This review is based on Specs but not usability. The device software is suprisingly buggy. Plex has a tonne of issues mainly due to storage detection failures (NAS and externally plugged drives). The most annoying issue is that of random reboots. One more thing the pro version is no longer available...for good. Don't take my word for it, visit shield TV forums at nvidia website and see for yourselves.

So if I have a PC that I use with my TV for media stuff, is this thing pointless for me? I love cool tech gadgets, but after watching the video my PC does all this stuff already.

If space or power consumption were an issue you could switch over to the shield and it would handle almost everything you can throw at it. Slightly less customisation than a PC of course.

Nvidia is amazing! Bought it when it first came out 4 years ago. And still I love it its my favorite, plus I love I can run all my emulators ❤️

Legit question: I own a 4k 144hz monitor and a beast PC with 2080ti - Also, i own apple TV so why should i buy Nvidia shield? I'm not really interested in spending much time in playing games at lower frame rate on my 4k tv compared to my 4k monitor so what features does Shield has that i should get rid of Apple TV and to make Shield my secondary device (sky TV is my primary device).

When is the new version 2019 ??? I'm waiting and waiting. I want to buy Shield but I don't know what to do. Wait for a new product or buy an old one from 2017.

@Herman Lenana Yes, the game stream is running very poorly. I was hoping for better results with my internet connection. I think that if it continues to bad work, I will never pay them a subscription for streaming games. Unless, it will improve once the beta test is over. But so far, fortunately, I have no problem with the operation of the device itself. It walks quickly and well.

@Akwilian Szubert It seems users have different issues but most revolve around storage and streaming. You are lucky my friend. My shield just reboots at random and it's eating me up. Nvidia contacted me proposing to ship over a new power brick. I hope it solves my issues.

@Herman Lenana Updates are made when you first start. I have no problems with the shield - if I use it as a tv box. There is maybe one, sometimes the google assistant freaks hard, doesn't understand what I'm saying to him, doesn't respond at all or writes nonsense. GeForce Now is a bigger problem. Often, various errors pop up that need to be clicked with the mouse. Or stream quality drops drastically, even though the test of my internet connection is over 500 mbp / s. But tv box working very good.

This is is the thing the nerds are fighting over? Oh please, because it plays games, grow up. The best streaming device is obviously the Roku ultra. This is its own little tool for a subset of individuals... can’t believe I wasted my time watching this.

I got one a week ago. It’s completely useless. It constantly disconnects from my 5g about 10 times a minute. Anyone know how to fix it before I return it? I’ve looked online and have tried a bunch of things suggested and nothing works. My old garbage firestick worked better than this.

How is the playback of Plex Videos specifically Live DVR Playback on the Shield if you are using a Different PC as a Plex Media Server? I know you mentioned Transcoding of Video not be optimal on the Shield. Great Review and hopefully Nvidia will launch a new Shield Soon!

If you want the best android box on the market, get a nvidia shield pro and put a SSD in it. The nvidia shield tv is a turtle compared to the modified nvidia shield pro and it has 500GB compared to 16GB. Just search youtube for nvidia shield ssd installation.

I do the amazon fire stick and I install kodi player and install streaming programs like exodus and incursion with a VPN. Firestick is now not letting me use the firestick at all with a VPN even for paid TV like prime, or anything actually. Will this box work for what I want? I heard people use this for streaming exodus and things but before I sink that kind of money into it I need to know for sure. Thanks for the awesome video. I like using my VPN even for paid TV because I don't think I should be forced to let someone watch what I do,, for a profit especially. Thanks

Can you run Plex media server offline on this? I was wanting to set it up so my older sister, who does not have internet, so she can play movies off a portable hard drive I setup for her. They have a smart TV, but the navigation though movies is horrid and there is no metadata for the movies.

I have an LG 4K smart tv and it has the apps I need. For gaming I want to collect my games physically for ever and ever so streaming doesn’t appeal to me at all, and at current speeds I would still digitally download rather than stream. Maybe in ten years.

I can tell you that the remote sucks!! Half the time it doesn’t work. I have to pop out the battery to restart it to get it working. Horrible for a device that costs so much. Plus the remote uses watch batteries instead of aaa. I’ve had as good a box that was way cheaper

Why it isn't: got this gadget to replace a htpc .... But it can't... Got an NVIDIA Shield for more than a year now and it is buggy... Buggy remote ... For someone using Plex 4k streaming, Netflix, IPTV streaming pass your way... At first glance it seems ok but in the end it remains shitty Android. Just a gadget filling nvidias pockets, even gamestreaming is not a thing.

My remote takes about 5 seconds to wake up which is highly annoying, to the point im just using my smart tv - anyone have a solution for this? I also cant get google chrome to function in PC mode not Mobile mode... not sure if there is a work around

Awesome bit of kit, only problem i'm suffering from is the occasional black screen for a second or two. Anyone else experiencing this and does anyone know a solution? Could be my HDMI cable, but can't easily access back of TV so prefer not to if there's a known reason for this black screen issue. The model i have is a P2987, bought from Amazon only a few weeks ago. Thanks in advance

@Travis Augustine yeah i have the first model from 2015 and its working like a charm. You have Steam client so you can play all the games in your Steam library. You can also stream your non Steam games from your PC to your TV. You also have some free games included in GeForce now service. And to finish you also have android games and emulators
