People still telling you there's no 4k content? Search for 4k cameras like the AX-100, GH4, Red and Blackmagic and you'll find a wide variety of content guaranteed to mesmerize you with detail you've never seen before. Cast to the always-on device. It even wakes up your TV and switched inputs for you. If you have Kodi installed, WOL will even wake your PC up (unless you're using the Shield itself to store your content) when you try to access your media. It's a shame that Google customizes all YouTube media players and they are not consistent across devices. For example the YouTube player on my Sony 4K TV offers related videos, options to subscribe, look at video information etc. that is much better though it's not 4k. That's right, Sony gives you a 4K TV but the YouTube video is not 4k! More power to Nvidia.
The mini remote is a joy to use and worth every penny of it. Plug in a splitter and a pair of headphones for brilliant crackle and hiss free audio for two (or more). The voice recognition is scary accurate and the fact that you can leave your receiver (or TV) volume high and control it all the way up or down with the remote is brilliant. Stick that remote in your pocket as you work on something else while you follow your show or listen to music. The Spotify TV app while not perfect is a great add on for premium subscribers.
I'm going to skip the game reviews as I haven't spent too much time there. Honestly, it's like a free UHD/4K gaming console that comes with your Android TV and media center! Time to buy that Nvidia stock as they've taken their leadership in the PC gaming hardware world and are now moving to capture the entertainment and automotive industry.
What I miss: an Amazon player, a browser, optical out for 5.1 (yes Nvidia, people like me don't want to throw out a perfectly good premium receiver just because everything comes with HDMI these days).
When I first read about this Android TV Top Box by Nvidia, I was like "OMG I want it" (as to everything else that's tech...) anyway, I was so eager to have it I bought it off amazon as soon as it became available to order for $300, as I went for the Pro version model with 500GB. I made an Unboxing video here [...]
It was easy to setup, and when I was able to navigate everything within minutes. It loads fast and runs butter smooth. I got this mainly to do some old school console gaming to emulate all the Nintendo systems also SEGA among others, and of course downloading movies on this beast so that I wouldn't have to stream them all the time. (i have secret movie apps muhahahaha)
As my first week went by, I found myself over it. Until I really got into the Game streaming that Nvidia offers with it''s GRID account, that happened to be free at the time. The ability to streaming games with zero downloading was just too cool!!! YES ZERO downloading games. I could just stream as and play games as if I was watching netflix over the internet, and at 1080p 60 frames per second at that!
That was my favorite feature. Yes it does native Google Chromecasting. Plays hundreds of games from the actual Google Play Store. Even has 4K capability unlike my Xbox One or a PS4 console, while all being virtually silent and super compact stealthy build. The controller has a xbox one feel to it somewhat, but more bulky and no vibration rumble built in. It's responsive and has a good battery life but not great. You can use it while it's charging and one of my favorite features on the control is the audio jack, where I can plug in my headphones to watch or play games or music whatever audio your in will stream out from the controller jack and mute the TV speakers. So that means you can even plug a stereo system in to the jack haha for boosting sound closer to your bed or sofa!
*Thank you for the quick response. I will rerate once I get a solution from customer care. Contacting them now*
I've had two of these go out on me. Thankfully Nvidia has great customer support and doing the 2 RMAs was pretty easy and painless. My third one has been working for a week, let's hope it stays that way.
