Nvidia Shield

The Nvidia Shield Android TV offers up 4K streaming from your favorite sources like YouTube and Netflix. It also comes with a game controller for use with Android or PC games through the Nvidia GRID system. This could be the best way to stream 4K.

Here are the parameters:

THE GOOD The Nvidia Shield Android TV streaming box offers best-in-class hardware, connectivity and gaming capabilities. It works with 4K streaming services including Netflix and YouTube. The Android TV platform delivers good conversational voice search from the included game controller. Native app selection is solid, and if you use your smartphone or tablet to Cast compatible apps, it can access most important services. The interface is lightning-fast — even with relatively complex apps.

THE BAD It’s more expensive than any other streamer and doesn’t include a remote, aside from the game controller. Native app selection is still weaker than that of Roku, Apple TV and Amazon Fire TV. The menu system seems designed to push users toward Google’s media services, and voice search doesn’t yet include Netflix. The system also suffered from bugs and crashes.

THE BOTTOM LINE While the Nvidia Shield’s 4K video and solid gaming chops make it the most potent Android TV device yet, app shortfalls and a relatively high price limit its appeal.Screen Shot 2015-07-07 at 10.55.37 pm
