Talk Android

The definitive Android TV experience

from Talk Android

It handles 4K video streaming, it plays a huge variety of games and supports emulators, and if you’re into PC gaming, it’s an easy way to expand your gaming setup onto the big screen. Apple can’t touch that.

The perfect addition to your audiovisual arsenal

All things considered, the Nvidia Shield is an excellent streaming box. There are other options out there for less than the Shield’s price point worth considering but, should you desire a 4K video streaming player that can handle some of your favorite games, this is the perfect addition to your audiovisual armory.

Tom's Guide

A big improvement over its predecessor

from Tom's Guide

PC gamers — especially GeForce Now subscribers — who also enjoy streaming videos and music will get a lot out of the Nvidia Shield’s robust app selection and gaming options. More casual streamers can go with a cheaper player, while console gamers should stick with a PS4 or Xbox One.

Excellent TV streamer

The Nvidia Shield is the bee knees of TV streaming devices. Compact but still stylish, this streamer makes it easy to watch TV shows and movies in 4K quality from Amazon Prime Video and Netflix on a compatible TV.

Meant for those who live on the cutting edge

from Stuff

Still the most powerful media streamer out there, only now in a smaller package. The gaming features are still great, and home automation could make all the difference when it turns up later in the year.

If you’re into media streaming and use stuff like Plex or Kodi, or subscribe to other (legal) internet TV services - then Shield handles this stuff well. Of course, you can do a lot of it with Chromecast, but the more detailed IPTV stuff needs an Android box. Since most Android boxes are cheap, nasty and slow - using a powerhouse like Shield gives you a rare luxury experience.

Walks the line between expensive streamer and cheap gaming console

from Digital Trends

There are several caveats, but yes, the Shield TV is a good 4K streamer and great way to play your PC games. Plus, it saves you the backache of dragging your gaming rig into the living room.

The best 4K media and gaming streamer you can get

from T3

I've got some reservations about who will actually want to buy the Shield TV, but that doesn't change the fact that it's a hugely accomplished product, that's only going to get better as more 4K/HDR content appears, Google Assistant comes online and, hopefully, the GeForce Now library expands.
