NVIDIA Shield TV 2019 Review: The only Android TV box worth buying

by birtanpublished on September 7, 2020

it's been a long time coming but we finally have a new and Vidia shield TV actually there are two new models one looks just like the old one and once shaped like a tube I'm high auto with

Android Central and let's talk about what's new so the shield TVs basically been the king of streaming boxes for the last few years and it's only gotten better with the new refresh the standard 2019 model

Comes in this weird cylindrical shape that you sort of just leave on the ground it's a little clumsy but the good news is the power supply is built right into the unit this time around so you don't need any kind of external wall

Adapter something that's missing from this model there are no more USB ports but unless you have a huge media library stored on an external hard drive you probably don't need them anyway and if you do the pro model has two USB 3.0

Ports now something I really like is how they revamped the remote it's a little bulkier but it's easier to hold it runs off of triple-a batteries and there's a super handy find my remote feature that you can trigger from your phone and make

The remote start loudly beeping until you can dig it out of your couch even more good news if you're still perfectly happy with your current shield TV this remote is fully backwards compatible so you can pick it up separately and use it

With older models which is awesome so enough about the hardware how does this thing perform as a streaming box well if you've used Android TV before the new shield TV will feel instantly familiar nothing's really that new on the surface

Though there's some tighter integration with Google Assistant and the main UI curates content from your preferred streaming services which is really nice the big improvements are under the hood the shield TV supports Dolby Atmos Dolby

Vision and HDR 10 and NVIDIA is using its new Tegra x1 plus processor to enable AI based upscaling on lower res content now that doesn't mean that 1080p or 720p video is magically gonna look just as good as native 4k content but it

Does look noticeably better than other upscaling solutions out there and it pays special mind to details like hair and Rick patterns so what don't I love about the shield TV well there's no passive

Cooling which means there's a tiny little fan in there and given that you're supposed to just leave this thing on the floor by your TV stand I've got a few concerns about dust and long-term durability you also don't get an HDMI

Cable in the box which is a pretty weird omission but most people probably have one sitting around the house and these are pretty minor complaints especially considering the shield TV only costs $150 for that money you should

Absolutely go pick up a shield TV you'll be getting a dead simple polished experience with great content upscaling and even some decent gaming capabilities but simply this is the new Android TV streaming box to beat everybody thanks
