Remote Stopped Working

I was excited to get this after the recommendation of a friend. The remote stopped working after a few days. I didn't see anywhere for a battery. I looked online and there wasn't much help - only talk about interference from a HDMI cable or other devices. I put it on the floor away from the AppleTV and DVD player...I took it to another house and attached to a TV with a different HDMI cable and no other devices. Same problem...remote doesn't work. I contacted Best Buy but it looks like they just printed a return label. I would like an exchange. Preferably they can send me one and I can return this one in the same box.

Update not good

I decided to take the product back because the update made the wifi 5 g not connect anymore even after I reset to factory default . Anyways one of the usb ports did not work even before the update and after . It is a fast box with voice command which is nice .

10X better than china android box. this is Fast and not buggy

will buy more if everything goes fine .super fast and not buggy. not lie like china android boxes. u dont know what u getting.China Android box are probably made very cheap less than dollar and sold for alot of money thats why they very slow and buggy and not HD . they just put anything on the box 4K, 8K, 10K. 4k needs lots of power

I wasted so much money on those garbage CHINA ONLY android boxes that in the end the money I wasted should've gone towards an Nvidia Shield. I broke all my crappy CHINA ONLY android boxes and threw them in a e-waste dump site. I now only have room for 1 android device. BTW the device actually does Netflix and in HD unlike those other CHINA ONLY boxes that say it does do Netflix and in HD.

Nvidia Shield Streaming Media Player

I have researched and tried many streaming devices. Non compare to Nvidia for both quality and ease of use. I find it to be the best streaming device currently available. The quality of 4K streaming is excellent. I would suggest a direct connection over WIFI for the best quality. I highly recommend the Nvidia Shield over other systems.

Buyer beware - Not gaming edition

Does not come with a game controller so it is not the gaming edition. Thus the standard edition it cheaper elsewhere. Best buy will price match if you want to buy it first in online store, then go to their location and then ask if its eligible for a price match?

Best android streaming box period!

Like the title says this is the best streaming box I have used. I was a little hesitant at first because of the price, but it really is worth it. If you are in the market for a new Android box do yourself a favour and spend the extra money on this one. You won’t be disappointed.

Best TV Box Ever!

Definitely worth buying! No China TV boxes comes close to this! Easy to setup and operate with the ease of navigation through use of shield remote. Has a very different google play interface which may confuse other android box users. This is the only reason for a 4 star rating. Side-loading media apps has to be done in order to install and create menu app shortcuts. Best used with a wireless keyboard and mouse like a Rii mini i8+ if you prefer typing out your search inquiries and browsing the net. Wifi connection is blazing fast, nearly as fast as a wired connection does. Android interface is very smooth and very much like a game console.

Best Streamer Period

can I just say re: other reviews about not receiving controller, its your own faults. do your research, the going price with the controller is more than this. but I've seen all kinds of android boxes and streaming devices, none of them can touch this.

Best Streaming device

After reading and watching multiple reviews, I was convinced to buy THE SHEILD. I would like to say all of the reviews are actually true. It is the best android tv streaming device. Fast!
