What is baby swim float NVIDIA SHIELD Android TV Pro streaming media player; 4K HDR movies; live sports; Dolby Vision-Atmos; AI-enhanced enhancement; GeForce NOW cloud gaming; with Google Assistant; Works with Alexa gift for dad?
      I've baby swim float been a shield owner since the original release baby swim float back in 2015.The NVidia shield TV is the baby swim float best in class when comes to media baby swim float streaming devices that is the most baby swim float important point that needs to be made baby swim float at the start baby swim float of this review. I base baby swim float that statement not on baby swim float opinion but fact. baby swim float I could baby swim float write five pages baby swim float of features and abilities baby swim float this device is capable of that the nearest competitor can't touch. I would baby swim float make the comparison the Nvidia Shield TV reminds baby swim float me of time when baby swim float you saw people with baby swim float large satellite dishes baby swim float in their back yard bragging baby swim float about how they could baby swim float watch TV stations baby swim float from baby swim float all baby swim float over baby swim float the world for free compared baby swim float to their neighbors who were baby swim float force fed whatever baby swim float their cable provider would baby swim float sell them. Even though baby swim float I have mixed baby swim float feelings about this release I need to make baby swim float that clear.Now with that in baby swim float mind I'll list the most important issues in this review baby swim float you should know before buying.First baby swim float - This is an baby swim float important long term issue baby swim float that can't be fixed with any software update the Shield baby swim float TV baby swim float Pro 2019 is HDMI 2.0B not the new HDMI 2.1 standard rolling out. baby swim float HDMI 2.0B is at the baby swim float end of its baby swim float life cycle baby swim float and when I saw this it baby swim float did baby swim float make me cringe baby swim float because I know baby swim float this device is baby swim float not future proof. Recently baby swim float Vizio has baby swim float announced their entire lineup of TVs for 2020 baby swim float will have HDMI 2.1 and many in baby swim float the industry baby swim float consider Vizio a baby swim float budget brand. I'm a home theater enthusiast and baby swim float I baby swim float understand baby swim float the importance of having baby swim float HDMI 2.1 baby swim float and at $199 baby swim float this is a mind numbing baby swim float let down. I'm expecting NVidia to release a hardware refresh of this device within 18-24 months at baby swim float the latest with baby swim float HDMI 2.1 and baby swim float most likely baby swim float add back the extras now missing (more baby swim float on that below.)Second - This might be a baby swim float deal breaker for baby swim float some is baby swim float the lack of baby swim float YouTube baby swim float HDR baby swim float 60 FPS VP9 codec baby swim float support baby swim float per NVIDIA'S baby swim float own website. baby swim float NVidia baby swim float has come out refusing baby swim float to support baby swim float VP9 for some unknown reason and shield baby swim float owners have been waiting over a baby swim float year for an update supporting YouTube baby swim float HDR but to baby swim float no baby swim float avail have users received it. It's confusing that Andriod's TV flagship device is lacking such baby swim float an important feature.Third - Missing items, in the box there no baby swim float longer a gaming baby swim float controller, the baby swim float shield TV remote is now missing a head phone jack (sigh) but this does seem to be trend so not much of baby swim float a surprise and in box there is no baby swim float 4k HDR HDMI cable. Yes you baby swim float read baby swim float that baby swim float right, for baby swim float a $199 baby swim float how much more skimpy can you get, baby swim float seriously NVidia baby swim float Make sure you order a baby swim float 4K baby swim float HDR baby swim float HDMI baby swim float cable. Not all cables baby swim float are equal and that has been the cause of baby swim float many of the baby swim float complaints in other reviews baby swim float I've read here. I recommend an HDMI cable that can support 22.28 Gbps of bandwidth to avoid baby swim float any baby swim float issues and baby swim float Zeskit makes an excellent baby swim float cable baby swim float sold on Amazon.NVidias website baby swim float currently lists the gaming baby swim float controller for $59.99 baby swim float which I don't recommend baby swim float you baby swim float buy (its not baby swim float that great) but on the plus side baby swim float Playstation 4 and XBOX baby swim float controllers will work via Bluetooth and baby swim float if you own the older NVidia shield baby swim float gaming controller or TV remote those are compatible too. I baby swim float tested the baby swim float headphone baby swim float jack from the original baby swim float Nvidia baby swim float shield baby swim float TV remote on the new shield and luckily baby swim float it worked but it doesn't baby swim float currently work for the PlayStation 4 baby swim float controller. There baby swim float are after market shield remotes if baby swim float you do need a headphone baby swim float jack.Since baby swim float owning my first shield since 2015 there baby swim float have been some ups and downs. baby swim float Even though NVidia has been good baby swim float with constant updates for the device over the years NVidia has not been good at listening to the community when it comes to features that are actually need like YouTube HDR. Nvida can baby swim float be extremely hard nosed baby swim float and baby swim float that last reason is why I baby swim float left baby swim float my baby swim float king baby swim float of baby swim float streaming boxes baby swim float years ago on my baby swim float older TV when I upgraded. NVidia refused to support Dolby Vision at the time. Now you can have it.Why did I buy baby swim float this deviceI baby swim float ordered the 2019 Shield TV Pro because the AI-enhanced upscaling baby swim float that experts are calling the "best they've baby swim float ever baby swim float seen." baby swim float Upscaling is usually a gimmick and current TVs and receivers do a poor job at it nearly all of the time. baby swim float The norm when reading expert baby swim float TV reviews is a recommendation to disable the onboard video upscaling baby swim float for the best picture quality. baby swim float I baby swim float can attest baby swim float the Shields A.I upscaling does make a big difference and newer TV's will see the biggest difference especially in animations. Some baby swim float examples I'll note when baby swim float looking at baby swim float a video frame paused baby swim float with upscaling turned off all baby swim float the roof shingles on top of a home blurred together/turned baby swim float on I could make out each shingle with lines between baby swim float them. baby swim float On Neflix HD source material the natural light baby swim float reflection off an actors baby swim float eyes was missing but once the A.I was enabled the baby swim float video baby swim float looked like true 4k there was natural light reflection off baby swim float the actor's pupils. One of the most baby swim float dramatic changes was an HD video scene baby swim float of the ocean baby swim float the source material was Netflix baby swim float HD with the option off baby swim float the waves all blurred baby swim float together but baby swim float turned on you baby swim float could see each ripple between the waves and baby swim float sun light shimmered off each individual wave as they baby swim float moved. HBO's baby swim float streaming baby swim float service baby swim float while watching Game of Thrones I baby swim float can baby swim float now see the wrinkles on the actors faces and snow never looked so baby swim float white and baby swim float detailed! The amount of blur this device removes from baby swim float standard HD is impressive and the detail baby swim float it adds is baby swim float just as baby swim float good! I have no baby swim float doubt Nvidia will keep improving baby swim float this feature over baby swim float time. To take advantages added to the 2019 shield you need a newer TV otherwise I find no reasons to upgrade baby swim float from even the 2015 model.The Price: - Thumbs Down - baby swim float Minus 1 starThis device is not priced fairly, baby swim float nearly 3 baby swim float years ago the same baby swim float device baby swim float released lacking Dolby baby swim float Vision baby swim float and A.I upscaling baby swim float which can now baby swim float be baby swim float had for feels baby swim float like baby swim float a baby swim float $199 upgrade fee! I have baby swim float no doubt at least one baby swim float of the previous mentioned features baby swim float could be enabled for the 2017 baby swim float shield if not both. I'm disappointed in baby swim float Nvidia because this baby swim float is baby swim float not a next gen device but only baby swim float a baby swim float minor baby swim float refresh before what baby swim float will most likely be another baby swim float release. I've read multiple benchmark baby swim float comparisons that all came to the same conclusion, if you take a 2017 shield baby swim float and 2019 shield there baby swim float is baby swim float no processing power baby swim float increase baby swim float worth mentioning not baby swim float even the slight 25% NVidia is claiming. Think about that for a second, if baby swim float you bought a baby swim float computer 3 years ago baby swim float wouldn't you expect at least a 50% speed increase baby swim float for baby swim float the baby swim float same moneyAll in all this is the baby swim float King of streaming devices and I found it nice baby swim float to baby swim float be able to switch from a baby swim float small streaming stick baby swim float with little freedom back baby swim float to the shield that has once again taken the top baby swim float spot baby swim float as the King.One baby swim float last note.I baby swim float see something concerning baby swim float the baby swim float claims the older Shield models are somehow better than the 2019 Shield TV Pro. I own the oldest baby swim float and the newest baby swim float Shields and side by baby swim float side you can't compare the picture quality or the baby swim float sound. I put away my older Shield because of the lack Dolby Vision and better baby swim float audio formats Amazon Prime and Netflix both support the previous Shield models baby swim float lack. Another issue with older Shields baby swim float is baby swim float the poor quality remote prone to baby swim float random disconnects or flat out baby swim float dying and I replaced 3 last generation baby swim float remotes myself. baby swim float The 2019 Shield has a far superior remote that baby swim float lights up when touched and if misplaced can be found by basically calling out for it to beep.4K HDR Content.

Plex Media Server built-in, 3 GB RAM, and 16 baby swim float GB storageThis is an baby swim float excellent device, baby swim float powerful, baby swim float and easy to use. baby swim float It's incredibly easy to install baby swim float and to get up and baby swim float running. Previous versions of baby swim float the software had zero baby swim float ads, which is why I bought baby swim float several shield baby swim float tv's, baby swim float but they've now updated it so that the home baby swim float screen top 1/3 of the screen or so is ads for shows/movies. You can't turn it off. There are some tedious workarounds, but they don't work baby swim float for baby swim float how baby swim float I use the device. If you had the opportunity to turn baby swim float this baby swim float off, baby swim float I would absolutely say this is baby swim float a 5 star device. They last a long time (the oldest pro we have is at baby swim float least 7 years baby swim float old at this point and still works perfectly with baby swim float zero issues), and the baby swim float remote battery also lasts pretty much forever. I'm not a huge baby swim float fan baby swim float of the pyramid baby swim float shaped baby swim float remote, but it's not baby swim float overly cumbersome to use. I do baby swim float wish that there was a way to reprogram the netflix button built baby swim float into the device, since baby swim float we baby swim float don't have Netflix and hitting the button still forcibly baby swim float opens the app baby swim float - baby swim float which then plays loud music whether you want it to or not. There are apps you can use to remap the buttons, but they don't always work baby swim float and baby swim float often crash.A couple of weeks ago, my baby swim float Western Digital Live baby swim float TV Media Player (almost 20 years old) gave up baby swim float the ghost. I had been prepared baby swim float for baby swim float this eventuality, and was thinking baby swim float I could replace it baby swim float with baby swim float a customized Raspberry Pi, the Roku baby swim float Ultra, or the Nvidia Shield baby swim float TV Pro. When the baby swim float WD Media Player died, I called a baby swim float couple of online audiophile dealers baby swim float to determine what were their options baby swim float -- and their baby swim float recommendations were baby swim float twice or more the price of the Nvidia baby swim float Shield option.I looked again the baby swim float helpful Amazon pictures and though the Shield Pro had not optical output for my much higher priced (and very baby swim float musical) DAC, it baby swim float did have two baby swim float USB ports, which would possibly work with the USB port baby swim float for my DAC. I am not very technical or baby swim float good with baby swim float hardware, so instead of baby swim float taking on what might be a challenging Raspberry PI project, baby swim float I decided to baby swim float roll the dice on the baby swim float Nvidia Shield TV Pro.It was delivered baby swim float next day, and to my disappointment, no sound came when hooked up to my baby swim float DAC. This was after baby swim float going through the settings and baby swim float enabling the USB out option.Time for additional searching on Google, and eventually I came across a post baby swim float titled "HOW TO SETUP THE NVIDIA SHIELD PRO AS baby swim float A BIT baby swim float PERFECT baby swim float AUDIO STREAMER/PLAYER." Now baby swim float there may have been other, and even baby swim float better or baby swim float easier options, then baby swim float what the baby swim float article recommended, but I did as it said, and searched for baby swim float the Sony baby swim float Music Centre in the Google Play baby swim float Store on my Amazon Fire tablet, installed an app called Side Launcher on baby swim float the Nvidia Shield Pro as well baby swim float as the baby swim float tablet, baby swim float and then sent the downloaded apk (a baby swim float term baby swim float I had not baby swim float previously heard) from my tablet to the Shield via the Side baby swim float Launcher App. With the Sony Music Centre/Center installed, I plugged in the baby swim float DAC baby swim float chord from DAC to baby swim float Shield, the Music Center recognized it and gave baby swim float me the baby swim float option baby swim float (as indicated in baby swim float the article) to allow baby swim float pass through audio. baby swim float I baby swim float then went baby swim float to play something via the X-Plore file manager baby swim float I had just baby swim float installed on the Shield.I was prepared baby swim float for no sound -- and that is what happened the first couple of seconds -- but, to my baby swim float delight, the baby swim float sound went from the Shield baby swim float to my DAC to my amplifier baby swim float to baby swim float my speakers! baby swim float This worked for files on my attached 4 hard drives baby swim float (attached via baby swim float a hub to the other baby swim float USB port available in the Shield) to my PC, baby swim float to the streaming on Youtube, Peacock and baby swim float Plex TV which used the baby swim float Plex Server on my PC for baby swim float the files there.Next steps, was to expose those 4 attached drives to the Shield so I could see them in the PC which I was able to baby swim float do with some baby swim float trial baby swim float and error, after watching a baby swim float youtube video on how to set baby swim float up baby swim float a the Shield as a Network Attached Storage baby swim float Device. baby swim float (This had taken no effort to do with baby swim float the WD TV baby swim float Media Player, but was not so easy for me with baby swim float the baby swim float Shield. I did this so I can move files back baby swim float and forth from PC to those drives baby swim float attached baby swim float to the Shield, just like I was able to baby swim float do with the baby swim float WD baby swim float Media Player.)Sound was as baby swim float good (or baby swim float better -- I couldn't, to baby swim float A to baby swim float B comparisons since the WD player was inoperable) as my old WD Media Player solution but the file manager I was using (X-plore) couldn't work with baby swim float cue files like the WD Media Player. In addition, though the baby swim float WD Media baby swim float Player didn't support baby swim float .ape files, it could sometimes baby swim float play them baby swim float and baby swim float always see them, but not so with the X-Plore app.After baby swim float more googling, I found out baby swim float about Kodi (yes, I was baby swim float pretty baby swim float clueless about all this stuff) and installed that. It also has an option for audio pass through, baby swim float which I enabled, and unlike X-Plore, I baby swim float could see the individual baby swim float tracks on single flac files that had associated .cue baby swim float files. And an improvement over the WD Media Player, baby swim float it baby swim float could baby swim float play not only baby swim float .flac files, baby swim float but baby swim float also baby swim float .ape files!So baby swim float at this point I am happy baby swim float with the baby swim float sound of the baby swim float Nvidia, happy baby swim float with baby swim float the ability to baby swim float play baby swim float my baby swim float audio files and baby swim float how well Kodi works, and even find that it has baby swim float made my baby swim float old Roku baby swim float redundant. (I baby swim float had considered replacing the baby swim float old Roku and WD Media Player with baby swim float the baby swim float Roku baby swim float Ultra, but didn't baby swim float after Roku baby swim float support indicated baby swim float that baby swim float it wouldn't baby swim float work with a USB baby swim float hub with multiple baby swim float drives -- maybe it really would baby swim float have, baby swim float but not sure it wouldn't have allowed me all the functionality that baby swim float I have with the Shield.)So at this point baby swim float very baby swim float happy with the Shield, particularly the quality of baby swim float pictures when watching streaming channels (I set the AI video enhancement option baby swim float -- baby swim float a baby swim float great feature) and most importantly baby swim float happy with the quality of the audio! It was great listening baby swim float to Gentle Giant's remastered Power and baby swim float the Glory with the sounds appearing from baby swim float multiple parts of the room (my setup is baby swim float traditional stereo but this effect happens baby swim float with two well placed baby swim float speakers) and some baby swim float Haydn Keyboard Trios baby swim float on baby swim float original baby swim float instruments (each baby swim float note of the fortepiano is so clear, baby swim float and baby swim float most importantly the humor in the baby swim float music, baby swim float so well interpreted by the musicians, is so baby swim float effectively conveyed.) At first I had baby swim float thought I had wasted $200 on the baby swim float Shield, baby swim float but after taking the time to learn baby swim float some baby swim float of what it is capable baby swim float of, found baby swim float it to be a great audiophile-level solution!

Buyer's experience:
      1: I've been a shield owner since the original release back in 2015.The NVidia shield TV is the best in class when comes to media streaming devices that is the most important point that needs to be made at the start of this review. I base that statement not on opinion but fact. I could write five pages of features and abilities this device is capable of that the nearest competitor can't touch. I would make the comparison the Nvidia Shield TV reminds me of time when you saw people with large satellite dishes in their back yard bragging about how they could watch TV stations from all over the world for free compared to their neighbors who were force fed whatever their cable provider would sell them. Even though I have mixed feelings about this release I need to make that clear.Now with that in mind I'll list the most important issues in this review you should know before buying.First - This is an important long term issue that can't be fixed with any software update the Shield TV Pro 2019 is HDMI 2.0B not the new HDMI 2.1 standard rolling out. HDMI 2.0B is at the end of its life cycle and when I saw this it did make me cringe because I know this device is not future proof. Recently Vizio has announced their entire lineup of TVs for 2020 will have HDMI 2.1 and many in the industry consider Vizio a budget brand. I'm a home theater enthusiast and I understand the importance of having HDMI 2.1 and at $199 this is a mind numbing let down. I'm expecting NVidia to release a hardware refresh of this device within 18-24 months at the latest with HDMI 2.1 and most likely add back the extras now missing (more on that below.)Second - This might be a deal breaker for some is the lack of YouTube HDR 60 FPS VP9 codec support per NVIDIA'S own website. NVidia has come out refusing to support VP9 for some unknown reason and shield owners have been waiting over a year for an update supporting YouTube HDR but to no avail have users received it. It's confusing that Andriod's TV flagship device is lacking such an important feature.Third - Missing items, in the box there no longer a gaming controller, the shield TV remote is now missing a head phone jack (sigh) but this does seem to be trend so not much of a surprise and in box there is no 4k HDR HDMI cable. Yes you read that right, for a $199 how much more skimpy can you get, seriously NVidia Make sure you order a 4K HDR HDMI cable. Not all cables are equal and that has been the cause of many of the complaints in other reviews I've read here. I recommend an HDMI cable that can support 22.28 Gbps of bandwidth to avoid any issues and Zeskit makes an excellent cable sold on Amazon.NVidias website currently lists the gaming controller for $59.99 which I don't recommend you buy (its not that great) but on the plus side Playstation 4 and XBOX controllers will work via Bluetooth and if you own the older NVidia shield gaming controller or TV remote those are compatible too. I tested the headphone jack from the original Nvidia shield TV remote on the new shield and luckily it worked but it doesn't currently work for the PlayStation 4 controller. There are after market shield remotes if you do need a headphone jack.Since owning my first shield since 2015 there have been some ups and downs. Even though NVidia has been good with constant updates for the device over the years NVidia has not been good at listening to the community when it comes to features that are actually need like YouTube HDR. Nvida can be extremely hard nosed and that last reason is why I left my king of streaming boxes years ago on my older TV when I upgraded. NVidia refused to support Dolby Vision at the time. Now you can have it.Why did I buy this deviceI ordered the 2019 Shield TV Pro because the AI-enhanced upscaling that experts are calling the "best they've ever seen." Upscaling is usually a gimmick and current TVs and receivers do a poor job at it nearly all of the time. The norm when reading expert TV reviews is a recommendation to disable the onboard video upscaling for the best picture quality. I can attest the Shields A.I upscaling does make a big difference and newer TV's will see the biggest difference especially in animations. Some examples I'll note when looking at a video frame paused with upscaling turned off all the roof shingles on top of a home blurred together/turned on I could make out each shingle with lines between them. On Neflix HD source material the natural light reflection off an actors eyes was missing but once the A.I was enabled the video looked like true 4k there was natural light reflection off the actor's pupils. One of the most dramatic changes was an HD video scene of the ocean the source material was Netflix HD with the option off the waves all blurred together but turned on you could see each ripple between the waves and sun light shimmered off each individual wave as they moved. HBO's streaming service while watching Game of Thrones I can now see the wrinkles on the actors faces and snow never looked so white and detailed! The amount of blur this device removes from standard HD is impressive and the detail it adds is just as good! I have no doubt Nvidia will keep improving this feature over time. To take advantages added to the 2019 shield you need a newer TV otherwise I find no reasons to upgrade from even the 2015 model.The Price: - Thumbs Down - Minus 1 starThis device is not priced fairly, nearly 3 years ago the same device released lacking Dolby Vision and A.I upscaling which can now be had for feels like a $199 upgrade fee! I have no doubt at least one of the previous mentioned features could be enabled for the 2017 shield if not both. I'm disappointed in Nvidia because this is not a next gen device but only a minor refresh before what will most likely be another release. I've read multiple benchmark comparisons that all came to the same conclusion, if you take a 2017 shield and 2019 shield there is no processing power increase worth mentioning not even the slight 25% NVidia is claiming. Think about that for a second, if you bought a computer 3 years ago wouldn't you expect at least a 50% speed increase for the same moneyAll in all this is the King of streaming devices and I found it nice to be able to switch from a small streaming stick with little freedom back to the shield that has once again taken the top spot as the King.One last note.I see something concerning the claims the older Shield models are somehow better than the 2019 Shield TV Pro. I own the oldest and the newest Shields and side by side you can't compare the picture quality or the sound. I put away my older Shield because of the lack Dolby Vision and better audio formats Amazon Prime and Netflix both support the previous Shield models lack. Another issue with older Shields is the poor quality remote prone to random disconnects or flat out dying and I replaced 3 last generation remotes myself. The 2019 Shield has a far superior remote that lights up when touched and if misplaced can be found by basically calling out for it to beep.
      2: A couple of weeks ago, my Western Digital Live TV Media Player (almost 20 years old) gave up the ghost.

When the WD Media Player died, I called a couple of online audiophile dealers to determine what were their options -- and their recommendations were twice or more the price of the Nvidia Shield option.I looked again the helpful Amazon pictures and though the Shield Pro had not optical output for my much higher priced (and very musical) DAC, it did have two USB ports, which would possibly work with the USB port for my DAC.

Now there may have been other, and even better or easier options, then what the article recommended, but I did as it said, and searched for the Sony Music Centre in the Google Play Store on my Amazon Fire tablet, installed an app called Side Launcher on the Nvidia Shield Pro as well as the tablet, and then sent the downloaded apk (a term I had not previously heard) from my tablet to the Shield via the Side Launcher App. With the Sony Music Centre/Center installed, I plugged in the DAC chord from DAC to Shield, the Music Center recognized it and gave me the option (as indicated in the article) to allow pass through audio. I then went to play something via the X-Plore file manager I had just installed on the Shield.I was prepared for no sound -- and that is what happened the first couple of seconds -- but, to my delight, the sound went from the Shield to my DAC to my amplifier to my speakers! This worked for files on my attached 4 hard drives (attached via a hub to the other USB port available in the Shield) to my PC, to the streaming on Youtube, Peacock and Plex TV which used the Plex Server on my PC for the files there.Next steps, was to expose those 4 attached drives to the Shield so I could see them in the PC which I was able to do with some trial and error, after watching a youtube video on how to set up a the Shield as a Network Attached Storage Device. (This had taken no effort to do with the WD TV Media Player, but was not so easy for me with the Shield. I did this so I can move files back and forth from PC to those drives attached to the Shield, just like I was able to do with the WD Media Player.)Sound was as good (or better -- I couldn't, to A to B comparisons since the WD player was inoperable) as my old WD Media Player solution but the file manager I was using (X-plore) couldn't work with cue files like the WD Media Player. In addition, though the WD Media Player didn't support .ape files, it could sometimes play them and always see them, but not so with the X-Plore app.After more googling, I found out about Kodi (yes, I was pretty clueless about all this stuff) and installed that. It also has an option for audio pass through, which I enabled, and unlike X-Plore, I could see the individual tracks on single flac files that had associated .cue files. And an improvement over the WD Media Player, it could play not only .flac files, but also .ape files!So at this point I am happy with the sound of the Nvidia, happy with the ability to play my audio files and how well Kodi works, and even find that it has made my old Roku redundant. (I had considered replacing the old Roku and WD Media Player with the Roku Ultra, but didn't after Roku support indicated that it wouldn't work with a USB hub with multiple drives -- maybe it really would have, but not sure it wouldn't have allowed me all the functionality that I have with the Shield.)So at this point very happy with the Shield, particularly the quality of pictures when watching streaming channels (I set the AI video enhancement option -- a great feature) and most importantly happy with the quality of the audio! It was great listening to Gentle Giant's remastered Power and the Glory with the sounds appearing from multiple parts of the room (my setup is traditional stereo but this effect happens with two well placed speakers) and some Haydn Keyboard Trios on original instruments (each note of the fortepiano is so clear, and most importantly the humor in the music, so well interpreted by the musicians, is so effectively conveyed.) At first I had thought I had wasted $200 on the Shield, but after taking the time to learn some of what it is capable of, found it to be a great audiophile-level solution!
      3: This is an excellent device, powerful, and easy to use. It's incredibly easy to install and to get up and running. Previous versions of the software had zero ads, which is why I bought several shield tv's, but they've now updated it so that the home screen top 1/3 of the screen or so is ads for shows/movies. You can't turn it off. There are some tedious workarounds, but they don't work for how I use the device. If you had the opportunity to turn this off, I would absolutely say this is a 5 star device. They last a long time (the oldest pro we have is at least 7 years old at this point and still works perfectly with zero issues), and the remote battery also lasts pretty much forever. I'm not a huge fan of the pyramid shaped remote, but it's not overly cumbersome to use. I do wish that there was a way to reprogram the netflix button built into the device, since we don't have Netflix and hitting the button still forcibly opens the app - which then plays loud music whether you want it to or not. There are apps you can use to remap the buttons, but they don't always work and often crash.
