I Just received my Nvidia shield in the mail, the SHIELD TV not the PRO.

Whats' in the box?
Power Adapter
Charging Cable (for controller)

What's not in the box?
HDMI cable - This is rather annoying, but most people will have another one laying around somewhere.

Initial build quality impressions: 4\5
Unit does not have a very substantial feeling to it, feels rather lightweight and a little flimsy. Both the remote and gamepad have a good feel in my hands and I enjoy holding them. For what it is the build quality is adequate though, just don’t drop it.

Getting started: 5\5
Upon starting the unit you will need to setup the unit with your Google account. This can be either done using the controller or using your android smartphone / tablet. The latter, did not work for me. I received an error that something went wrong and the setup aborted on my phone. No big deal, the on screen setup is rather painless. After the setup the device will download a rather large (1.07GB) software package and then ask to restart. Upon restart the SHIELD will take you to it's main app screen.

Interface: 5/5
The main interface is very clean and very fast. Apps are laid out in the traditional tile orientation with menus being very easy to navigate.

HDR Test: 4/5
One of the major reasons I purchased this is the HDR support that it offers over other boxes. So, first thing I did was sign into my Amazon Prime Instant Video account and fire up an episode of "Mozart in the Jungle". As soon as the video launched the TV switched over to HDR settings and I was good to go.

Amazon: HDR is working.

Pretty amazing for cord cutters. Needs access to DirecTV Now, though. Google TV has a good interface and it has access to Amazon, unlike Apple TV. One issue I'm running into is I read GeForce Now comes free for three months with purchase of the Shield, but so far I'm only seeing a one month free offer. That aside, in hoping to finally only need one streaming device hooked up to have access to everything.

I've had it only for a day (the base version, not Pro). So far I love it's streaming apps. Netflix, Amazon, Plex and Sony's Ultra app support 4K HDR, Youtube, Google Movies, Vudu and Ultraflix and a few others support 4K (no HDR for those yet, rumored to come later for Vudu, Google Movies and Youtube). The Netflix app had to be updated on the Google Play Store to get HDR support.
Feels much faster and responsive than my Roku, and better than my Apple TV as that only does 1080p.
Sadly, no Google Home/Assistant support with handsfree mic yet - that apparently comes later this year, even though Nvidia has been touting it as if it's already supported. For now, you have to press a button on the remote or the controller to talk to the system. That works very well.
An annoying thing initially - accidentally touching the vertical touch area for volume control on the remote would pop up a message saying volume is controlled with the amp. I solved it in Settings by enabling CEC Audio. Now the little Shield remote also seamlessly controls the amplifier volume, and no annoying popups on the TV when that area is accidentally touched - easy to do.
The interface is fast. Launching apps, browsing content in them, playing is almost instantaneous. It supports Dolby ATMOS in Vudu. My Shield is connected to my Denon amplifier which supports ATMOS.
I have not explored the gaming aspects at all.
Improvement requests to NVIDIA:
1. It currently upscales everything to 4K. I wish it'd give an option to send content at the content's original resolution and refresh rate to the TV, and let the TV upscale it.
2. Support the TWC (now Spectrum) app for live TV.
3. Add 4K support for Hulu. My XBOX One S already does, which I use for 4K blu-rays and 4K content on Hulu.

Just received my gen2 shieldtv and I have to say nvidia took a great product and made it even better. More accurately, nvidia has continuously been making a great product better (my original gen1 was great, then nvidia kept releasing new sw updates which kept adding new stuff like HDR, vudu, plex server, etc). Shield has evolved to be our household entertainment for every tv we own – I can’t imagine using anything else at this point.

So, what has changed with gen2?
Amazon Instant Video – in 4K *and* HDR – yay! (the only content gap I had been missing).
Remote now bundled in (saves me $50). Sure, it does not have remote listening audio like the $50 version but I never used that anyway.
Much better controller – the new controller is lighter and feels better in the hand. I’ll also warn gen1 owners that it will spoil you – after using v2 controller for a bit, the v1 controller feels a little “fat”. I’ll probably retrofit all my gen1 devices.
Size – the gen2 version is almost identical to gen1 only half the size. Makes it easier to hide behind the TV (especially now that it is lighter).
New gaming interface – nvidia streamlined the way you launch games. You don’t need to remember if they are in the cloud, on your local pc, etc. You just launch the game icon from the homescreen and shield figures out where it is.
Improved gamestream – it feels that gaming is even lower latency with gen2. My guess is this is the software since gen2 is still using the TX1 chip. I’ll know for sure when I get my update for the gen1. In any case, even better gaming :)

I’m pretty excited about the new features coming as well (google home assistant, smartthings - just did a major house smartthings retrofit, and spot).
