  • Love it!
    Verified BuyerReviewed by Bduguid - February 2, 2020

    I've had the 2017 Pro version since 2017 and loved that one. I used a Harmony remote control the 2017 Shield, TV, and receiver. I love Harmony too, but I began having issues with the TV and receiver not recognizing them due to timing. The remote for the 2019 model using HDMI-CEC allows me to control all three beautifully. One of my motivations for upgrading to the 2019 is the AI upscaling. It works great in most cases. In a few, the movie looks over detailed and a little pixellated. There is a button on the remote to toggle the upscaling. The first movie we watched was Monsters, Inc. and the detail added to the monsters was amazing.

  • Poor upscaling, 24fps judder, prime video broken
    Verified BuyerReviewed by Junglist724 - February 5, 2021

    The shield doesn't automatically change refresh rate for judder free 24fps playback, though it has a beta feature you can use to match refresh to video framerate it doesn't work in a lot of apps. If your TV doesn't take care of the judder on its own then you're gonna have a bad time. The AI upscaling is completely unnoticeable unless you increase the detail level to max and then it just looks like noise. It's completely useless. The prime video app loses sync between video and audio and the Shield also doesn't support HDR10+ even though Android has already implemented support for it. Also doesn't come with a controller like the previous model.

  • Best Streaming box I’ve owned
    Verified BuyerReviewed by nks3 - January 1, 2020

    This box is fast, has a clean and simple interface, and has all the channels you’d expect. On the technical side it works completely seamlessly with my Denon receiver and Samsung TV, the remote controls the power and volume perfectly. Im used to digging in settings to get thins to work, but the Shield Pro just worked so easily, with only basic settings adjustments. I paired a DualShock 4 and have been loving the game streaming capabilities, and I can link up to my PC in the other room. I’ve had several Apple TV’s, Roku ultra, chromecast - the Shield TV is by far the best I’ve used. I’ll be sticking with Nvidia as long as they make these.
