A few years ago, despite my early excitement, I passed on the Nvidia Shield Android TV box. At the time I was debating paying $200 for an android gaming system that lacked Madden or some of the other top games. But over the years I ended up not getting any of those top gaming systems (PS4 or XBOX One) because I just did not have the time to commit to playing games. And that leads me to my point about the Nvidia Shield Android TV set top box. If you are a person who want a set top box that can do just a little more than what you can do on a tablet or nexus player then this is the device for you. The Nvidia Shield Android TV is powerful enough to handle some of your top title games plus being just a little more than what the Nexus Player had to offer. I was playing Ultra Street Fighter IV and was amazed at how fluid the game play was. And for me I know that I will spend at most 2 hours a month playing games if that. So buying a ps4 or xbox would be just a waste of money knowing it will just sit on the shelf. The Nvidia Shield TV however would be a great replacement for my aging roku and nexus player, as the apps that were missing from my nexus player,ie amazon video, are present on my shield with the added bonus of a nice gaming controller. So this day I officially retired my Nexus player but frankly it was retired months ago and I could not think of a better device to take its place. For me the shield combines the versatility of a chromecast, with the beautiful UI and software support of Google, and the gaming ability of Nvidia, all in a package that is priced fittingly for people wanting just a little more while not wanting to spend money on something that life will keep them from utilizing (gaming system). Oh and you can still use it to run Kodi if you so choose. Those with the Nvidia Shield Android TV set top boxes, whether first generation or second, what are some of your recommendations as well as tips and tricks for users considering the device?
