    SHIELD TV Streaming Media Player with Remote and Game Controller is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 44.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Super Fast and Super Awesome Having owned a LOT of media players over the years, the latest was a Minix 4K player. It was great until the Shield arrived. The Shield is lightning fast at everything. The game streaming is the added bonus. Add Kodi to the mix and anything 4K plays on this device. I've only had it about a week or so but I think this will be the best media center for a LONG time. I'm yet to try other features but what I have tried is amazing. Even the gaming is great. If you need a media player that is lightning fast then this is the one you need. It is super small (the 16gb model) I went for the 16gb model (as you can add external storage if needed, all my data is on a Synology NAS)

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best streaming player I've tried. I've been streaming video since cutting cable TV about two years ago. Tried Roku and Amazon fire stick. They are both fine but each has it's own drawbacks. I decided to try the new Shield TV and am very happy with the purchase. I like the menus and it works fine with Netflix, YouTube, Amazon video and Google play. Google music is a welcome addition that the other players don't have. I recently switched from Sling TV to Playstation vue and both work fine on the shield. The remote and controller are easy to use, I found the volume sliders a little tricky, but am getting used to it. I'm not a big gamer, but am having fun with the games I've installed. Overall performance has been very good using a wired network connection, Bluetooth to wireless earphones works well, a plus over the other players. With Nvidia's track record of supporting their products I think this will keep me happy for a long time.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Exceeded my expectations I purchased the Nvidia Shield to cut the cord from cable TV. Paying $140 a month and then having increase even more just drove me crazy. First thoughts when opening the box was very stylish, sleek design. Then the hookup was simple, and the picture quality is perfect. After installing many apps and add ons I haven't had any issues with speed or quality.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Bought for PLEX, great passthrough sound I bought this to replace a 2009 Ma ini Plex Server/PHT combo that just didn't have the chops to power our 5.1.2 Atmos/DTS:X surround system due to optical line out audio. This box with HDMI video and passthrough audio did the trick as a Plex client. I did try to run both PHT and Plex server on it however and it was unable to manage without significant frame loss causing visibly stressed playback of 1080p sources. However, getting full out TRUE HD and ATMOS was pretty much worth it even if I can't migrate both the server off the Mac Mini (server stays until either Plex gets more efficient on the shield or ?)

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing device. The item is outstanding good for it's purpose, I'm only using it for it's playback capabilities, so if you are in the fence of getting it for that end but you don't think it justifies the price because you won't be using it's gaming capabilities then don't let that stop you, it's an amazing machine and it's the best out in the market just counting playback alone. Unfortunately my item got opened at the customs and it got a tiny scratch too apparently and I even had to pay taxes for the shipment once it arrived, but aside that facts using it was smoothly and I don't regret of the purchase.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great buy There may be cheaper set top boxes on the market but this is a real winner. Small footprint and sleek design and does exactly what it say it would. Only con is the lack of instructions included. You need to read online how to use it but that is pretty much everything now-a-days. You need to update the firmware when you first get it but that is totally painless and very simple to do. Best one I have had so far but also the dearest.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from It’s worth every penny I am using the Shield for streaming , I previously had one of those “cheap” android boxes for a couple of years. The Shield blows it away in every category.� A lot of Google store apps won’t work directly with the Shield so they need to be side loaded which is very simple. �This is a quality product, its worth the premium over the other less expensive options.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product so far I am yet to discover nVidia GameStream NOW, although can definitely bet to the fact that it will be good. Great experience so far with Android, but an IMPORTANT Notice: "make sure you have a quality external storage if one is use - highly preferable to use ones officially recommended by nVidia", in case one needs more than provided 16GB.
