- Best Android Box ever!- February 9, 2020
I had an old Android box (the Chinese ones all over Amazon etc.). I was always disappointed with its performance. It was slow at everything, even when new. I had read about the Shield TV being a much superior product and it is. It has the same storage as my old Chinese box, half the RAM and is many times faster at every task. Even its network performance is 4 to 6 times the speed of my old unit. Being a licensed product, I expect Nvidia will send out updates as well to the operating system etc. Yes, it was more expensive, but well worth it in my opinion. The Shield is so fast and stable that I really wish I had purchased it sooner.

- Speedy and Pure Android TV. No Parental Controls- December 31, 2019
The nVidia Shield TV has great specs, including built-in gigabit Ethernet, speedy processor and expandable storage. Also, the pure Android TV experience is nice. I have to say, it was not worth the money over the Fire TV that I was coming from. It does not do some of the things that the Fire TV does, that I really missed, like maintaining the last few apps that you’ve opened and parental controls. In fact, I ended up returning the device due to the lack of parental controls, which the Fire TV does well. If you are a gamer, do not have tween or teen kids and love pure Android TV, which performance to boot, you will love the nVidia Shield TV.No, I would not recommend this to a friend.
- Best Streaming Media Player- February 6, 2021
I have a smart tv, but the built in apps are all garbage. Tried other more expensive streaming devices but couldn't get used to the weird overly simplified remote. Nvidia has a great track record of supporting their devices, and this has been no exception so far. This does a great job of letting me switch between the different services I use while staying out of the way. The interface is simple to use, and there are no ads, which is a big one for me. The AI upscaling is mostly useless, it either isn't supported on most of the media I watch, or isn't noticeably better unless doing A/B comparisons. Sometimes it's significantly worse than the original.Yes, I would recommend this to a friend.
