I'm also very happy with the video options. Android TV has a very nice interface. The major downside right now is several key apps are missing. Vudu, WWE and a few others are coming this summer. However, I'm able to fill the gaps on most of my video services using Google Cast from my iPad.The one that will probably remain missing is Amazon Instant Video. Amazon has an exclusive deal with Sony and it will only be available on Android TV on Sony Televisions. This is a terrible policy I hope Amazon changes soon. If they do not I will drop my Prime and stick with Netflix and Hulu once my year is up. I tested out a few of the major streaming services and they are very slick on the Shield. Netflix is the fastest and smoothest I have seen on any device I have tried. I have owned Roku 3, Roku Streaming Stick, Amazon Fire TV Streaming Stick and Chromecast and the Shield is a smoother experience. However, the Shield has a monster CPU and GPU compared to those devices so it makes sense. I got rid of the Fire TV and Roku Streaming sticks as I got frustrated with how slow and buggy they could be. The Shield solves these problems. I am very happy with Netflix and Hulu and I did a 7 day trial of Sling TV and its a night and day experience on the Shield. The app is really too much for Roku and Fire TV to handle and is very clunky and unstable. On the Shield it is quick and seamless and acts just like a normal cable box with quick channel changes and smooth navigation through shows on the few channels that allow you to rewind and pause. The Google Play channel is also a huge difference compared to the buggy offering on Roku. The channel is actually usable on the Shield. I had constant buffering issues on the Roku. YouTube is also a bit slower on the Roku, but is very smooth on the Shield. I also used HBO Go, Vudu and Comedy Central through Google Cast and had no issues. The Shield puts out excellent looking video and makes it very easy to use your own library of video. I buy a lot of 1080p comedy specials through Comedy Central and the Shield has no issues displaying these through the built in Plex app over my PC. I also sideloaded Kodi and can simply hook up a HDD through USB and watch all my shows straight on the Shield with no hassles. This device is so versatile it is really amazing. This is the device the Ouya wanted to be but failed miserably at.
The only bad is the price. Its $200, but the power of the device, the versatility of it and the great controller it comes with makes its well worth the cost if you need all its features. Highly Recommended.
For my Pop it is able to handle 4k video without any stutters, and comes with KODI (XBMC) which we both know how to run, it can play the videos he makes through the high speed USB ports, gives easy use with it's built in mic. Hell even Mom can use it, and she is the farthest thing from being a tech person at all. Plus it can read NTFS so no need to format flash drives!
For me, I'm able to play games on it, without having to set up my PC, or even have it on the same network. First i'll start off with Grid: Nvidia's Grid service, worked great for us, we have it hardwired to the router, and it runs at about 25 down 15 up. I love how i can just play a game with little wait time, no install. Give it a try, then if i want jump into another game with no hiccups. Android games: I've played just a couple, Bombsquad is a fun little game, need to bring the playstation controllers over for more people. War Thunder looks amazing, and i have not had a problem on that game. Now Geforce streaming: I was playing GTA V and for it being an mobile processor actively cooled it looked great! I did experience some lag that made me have to quit the game, thinking that it might just be such a large game, i mean it's a 60 gb game that's huge! So i tried Assassin's Creed Black Flag for a little bit, also lagged. So i concluded since my PC is on wifi, I'm Probably going to have to put it on Ethernet and try again so i'll update this later. But I thought it was spectacular that i can run games over the net not even on the same network to my parents house literally eliminating my need to haul over my system.
Overall the system is killer, this isn't what i can confidently call a console, it plays games much better than anything else in it's class, but it isn't a dedicated gaming system such as a Playstation 4 or XBOX One, or gaming PC This is a bridge, a compromise, for those who have a situation like me. Where i may spend some time at my parent's house, and don't want to lug my case around. Or maybe your Wife/Husband or GF/BF doesn't like you having your PC in the living room. This can suffice, in their placement, it wont play PC games in stunning detail, but it will play them and thats what we want!! So if you're looking for the next gen console replacement you're looking at the wrong product, but if you have a gaming PC and want to play games on your TV without the hassle this is it.
What holds it back is the OS, android tv is still lacking behind a bit. But, it's not dead, it will continue to grow and mature, bringing more and more apps! The one thing that lost it's potential fifth star is the lack of supporting separate users. This to me would be such an incredible and i would think common sense feature because Android is the number one mobile operating system, and there is usually more than one person in a home, so you can have your own apps, and your own suggestions, and not have to share subscriptions, or a dropbox. This should be obvious, not sure if it's Nvidia or Google's fault but come on guys!
Only complaint is the Google play store is not the full featured one you'd find on your phone, and there are games I'd love to play on the big screen but cannot sure to this feature. They'd also have to be configured to work with the controller, and even if they did have the full play store it would be useless since the games are designed for touch screen only.
Buyer beware - Nvidia is phasing out this first generation model in anticipation of the release of the second, so sellers are gouging buyers with high prices for used product. If you are wanting to get one, check your local electronics store, or wait for the new model.
