Was good a few years ago

published

Doesn't have an internal app to play music or video off your HDD. Have to install VLC or similar, then has to synchronise all the data for menu. Takes days to complete if you're lucky without a corruption somewhere along the line. Can't get it to work smoothly anymore. Remote keeps disconnecting. Lastly 12 GB internal memory is pathetic. Keep getting critical low memory message no matter what I do. Impossible to get an external SSD or USB drive to act as additional memory.

always something

published

Every time they update software takes about 3 day to resolve you can not tell if it is on as it has no lights make trouble shooting more difficult. I have a 6 month old TCL TV always having issues with resolution . I have to plug into a monitor change setting to connect back to TV . told me HDMI cable was fault 3 months old works fine on every other gadget in the house not the shield . I recommend not to buy . I have tried to write reviews on other pages this is the only one I have found I can .

Good when it works

published

Ended up buying Shield after talking with a salesperson and initially it was very good with many features. Biggest fault is that it doesn't always work. It may be working fine then it doesn't turn on at all. Not sure if the issue is with the remote or the device itself. Because of this I cannot recommend.

Purchased at Harvey Norman.

The right to repair: which brands are making it easier for you to fix their products?

The right to repair movement in Australia is calling for companies to make it easier for their products to be repaired. Here are some electronics and appliance manufacturers who are starting to listen and make it more feasible for consumers to repair, rather than replace, their items.

Good but unreliable

published

What I like about the NVIDIA Shield is it has lots of features and can be customised a lot. The AI upscaling is a little bit better than some other devices. The voice commands work well and save some time. I had no trouble finding apps for the different streaming services I use.

However, it wasn't reliable. Sometimes when I turned it off then it didn't turn off the TV. Other times when I turned it on then the image was distorted and I had to restart it. And every now and then the video playback started stuttering and dropping frames. Changing the volume had some bugs too.

So I don't think it's worth it because when I want to watch something, then I just want to turn it on and play it without the device getting in the way.

Great product with only one disappointment

published

All the media you could ever need, Netflix, YouTube, Disney+, and all the free to air channels streaming apps are available
The only disappointment is that GeForce (gaming service) now isn't available in Australia

Nice product. Even better service

published

It's a nice small unit that I use mainly for plex and attaching a HDD to for local playback of huge media files. Also great that it is an android box so access to apps from there. Last week it just refused to start up though. Nvidia replaced it out of warranty which was great.
The reason for only 4 stars is that it is a little pricey and getting hold of helpdesk is very tedious in that there was no number to call but had to painfully troubleshoot with a chat.

Purchased in for $275.

Biggest Con sold in Australia as far as gaming is concerned.

Cannot use Geforce Games not available for Australia.
If all I wanted was a media player I know the MI 4K S TV BOX blows Nvidia out of the water for $90.

Great Media Player That Plays Everything

published

This is a great Android media player that can play anything you throw at it. Coupled with Kodi, it can play 4K HDR content with Dolby Atmos. It's losing one star due to its prive and it not being able to auto switch resolution to match the content. You can get around this by installing a third party app.

Purchased in at Computer Alliance for $268.
