abunda_amazon_reviews Finally. I've waited for this device for years. Every time Apple or Amazon or Roku release a new device I cross my fingers it checks all the boxes, and they never have, not even past Nvidia devices - until now. There is always one feature missing, at least. The new Nvidia Shield finally solves the problems that kept them, In my opinion, from making it the perfect streaming box until now. The primary issues I always had with the previous versions have finally been fixed. I'm not going to review the software... you either like Android TV or not, I don't feel like I need to get into that. This is simply about the hardware. The number one thing, the remote. My goodness, why did it take so long for someone to make a good remote for a set top box? The Apple TV remote is easily the worst that has ever been made, and while others make usable remotes they still aren't great. Nvidia gets the remote right here, really right. While at first glance the triangle design may seem odd, once you hold it in your hand you realize the benefit of this shape. It feels really good in the hand. It's comfortable to hold. It's hefty and feels well made without being too heavy. The button feel is really nice. The back-light is fantastic. And, finally, power and volume buttons which didn't even take any setup to get working on my LG OLED and Sonos Playbar. It just worked. It's a GREAT remote and if you're just using a TV and the Shield it's the only remote you will need. It has CEC of course, you can use your TV remote... if you really wanted too... Secondly, they finally added Dolby Vision. Why on earth did this take so long??? For whatever reason, it's finally here. FINALLY. I was always a fan of the previous Shield but stopped using it a couple of years ago. The incredibly stupid remote and lack of Dolby Vision kept it collecting dust in my closet even though I liked the speed and features. The old Android interface was never great either but since the past few updates to Android TV it's now pretty good. And finally, the form factor. Man, what a stupid looking device until now. It's like a bunch of people got together and asked themselves how they could design the most ridiculous thing to sit under a TV. The 'pro' version still looks the same, but the smaller version is finally something sensible. Like the remote at first glance it may look a bit silly... but if you think about it, and use it, it's a genius form factor. Rather than a stick or a dongle or something that needs to hang down, sit under, stick out, be mounted etc., it's perfectly designed to plug into your HDMI on one end and power on the other, and hang perfectly behind your TV. It's really smart design, just like the remote. I predict you're going to see companies following this design... once you see it you think 'why didn't someone do this before???'. It just makes sense. It just works. Everything about the new Shield looks like a gimmick. The odd shape of the device, the odd shape of the remote. It's not.

Fixes all of the problems of past versions
Finally. I've waited for this device for years. Every time Apple or Amazon or Roku release a new device I cross my fingers it checks all the boxes, and they never have, not even past Nvidia devices - until now. There is always one feature missing, at least. The new Nvidia Shield finally solves the problems that kept them, In my opinion, from making it the perfect streaming box until now. The primary issues I always had with the previous versions have finally been fixed. I'm not going to review the software... you either like Android TV or not, I don't feel like I need to get into that. This is simply about the hardware. The number one thing, the remote. My goodness, why did it take so long for someone to make a good remote for a set top box? The Apple TV remote is easily the worst that has ever been made, and while others make usable remotes they still aren't great. Nvidia gets the remote right here, really right. While at first glance the triangle design may seem odd, once you hold it in your hand you realize the benefit of this shape. It feels really good in the hand. It's comfortable to hold. It's hefty and feels well made without being too heavy. The button feel is really nice. The back-light is fantastic. And, finally, power and volume buttons which didn't even take any setup to get working on my LG OLED and Sonos Playbar. It just worked. It's a GREAT remote and if you're just using a TV and the Shield it's the only remote you will need. It has CEC of course, you can use your TV remote... if you really wanted too... Secondly, they finally added Dolby Vision. Why on earth did this take so long??? For whatever reason, it's finally here. FINALLY. I was always a fan of the previous Shield but stopped using it a couple of years ago. The incredibly stupid remote and lack of Dolby Vision kept it collecting dust in my closet even though I liked the speed and features. The old Android interface was never great either but since the past few updates to Android TV it's now pretty good. And finally, the form factor. Man, what a stupid looking device until now. It's like a bunch of people got together and asked themselves how they could design the most ridiculous thing to sit under a TV. The 'pro' version still looks the same, but the smaller version is finally something sensible. Like the remote at first glance it may look a bit silly... but if you think about it, and use it, it's a genius form factor. Rather than a stick or a dongle or something that needs to hang down, sit under, stick out, be mounted etc., it's perfectly designed to plug into your HDMI on one end and power on the other, and hang perfectly behind your TV. It's really smart design, just like the remote. I predict you're going to see companies following this design... once you see it you think 'why didn't someone do this before???'. It just makes sense. It just works. Everything about the new Shield looks like a gimmick. The odd shape of the device, the odd shape of the remote. It's not. They actually made something that makes sense and is very nice to use. Finally, someone has.

It's not TV the way you want it.
No downloader. No browser, yes you can get Puffin, but Puffin no longer supports downloading. No accesss to anything useful in the play store. All the reasons you buy a streaming box are not in this box and it's a real hassel to get them in. With so many point, click and relax boxes out there, hard to imagine wanting to fight this thing.

32bit app only + issues with dolby vision on launch is just a dealbreaker
32bit app only + issues with dolby vision on launch is just a dealbreaker - come on, you guys basically updated it to support dolby vision and ai scale. 1. dolby vision is not working correctly with auto color space switching. lol. they released hotfix but even that is not working correctly. 2. 32bit app support is a joke when previous nvidia shield and the 2019 pro all use 64bit. i understand that nvidia did this for 2gb ram size but they should just put 3gb for the tube and 4gb for the pro. so cheap. 3. ai scale only works on up to 30fps. let's make it work properly on all fps or at least up to 60fps. 4. no youtube hdr. because no vp9.2 hardware decoding.

Crippled Hardware
This version of the Shield will not run 64 bit applications. There are several games and Apps in the Google PLAY store that are not compatible with this version of the Shield. The picture quality on my 4K set is not as sharp with shield as my Roku Ultra. The Shield will be going back to Amazon.

Very limited amount of apps that can run on this unit for the price.
Very disappointed. Borderline useless since it can not access the full play store. Very limited app access. Way overpriced for not having the capability to run all android apps. I will be returning it.

Nice improvement over the previous models
I also have the previous 2 versions of the Shield and have always been pleased with them. This one is by far the best and, to me, a great upgrade from the 2017 Shield. It is considerably faster than before, searching and responding almost instantly with a fast internet connection. Even using Wi-Fi, it tested at over 50 MBPS from a 400 MBPS wired Comcast connection. The 4K upgrading works great and on an LG OLED TV the picture quality is outstanding using the medium sharpness setting. The new remote is a huge improvement over the original and even a lot better than the after market one I had purchased to replace the goofy OEM remote on the previous version. The initial installation is the best I have ever seen. It pretty much set itself up by just entering the phone # on my Google account. I like the new form factor and just let it hang behind the Television completely out of sight. The voice command seems faster and more accurate than previously. I am not sure if there is a limit to the size micro SD car it supports, its not mentioned in the Microscopic little guide provided or on the Nvidia website. It does work with a 256 GB card, that was the largest I had available.
