Nvidia Shield Android TV Review


Nvidia's Shield TV comes in a premium looking packaging. On the front, you will see an image of the Shield itself while on the back you will find a rundown of key features like 4K playback, the Android TV operating system, support for game streaming through GeForce NOW and voice search.


The first thing you will find in the box is the Shield console itself, which is surprisingly sleek and nicely designed.


The console itself is made from a mix of matte and glossy plastics. It is really small, especially compared to the consoles we are used to seeing.

On the bottom, you will find a sturdy rubber base as well as ventilation to ensure the hardware doesn't overheat.

Shield IO

On the rear of the console, you will find the I/O which includes the power connector, an HDMI 2.0 port, two USB ports, a micro SD card slot, a micro-USB slot and a gigabit ethernet port.


Also included in the box is Nvidia's gamepad, which hasn't really changed at all since the launch of the Shield tablet. It is fairly nice to handle but the buttons are a bit mushy and the triggers could have more of a tactile feel to them. If you aren't happy with it though you could switch it out for any other bluetooth gamepad, like the Dualshock 4.


Nvidia also offers a stand alone controller for the Shield TV that you can buy separately. This would be almost an essential purchase if you just wanted to use the Shield TV for streaming video rather than gaming.


Nvidia also bundles the Shield TV with an HDMI 2.0 cable, a micro-USB for charging the controller and a power chord with several adapters for sockets across the world. Overall, it is a well thought out bundle.

  1. I bought this device on Black Friday and I still love it and use it every day, to play games and watch movies and series in Netflix and Kodi. I actually prefer streaming over Geforce Now to playing the same games natively on my PS4 nowadays. A highly recommended buy.
