Nvidia Shield TV (2019) Review 2021

The Nvidia Shield TV has always been something of an odd duck in the streaming-player crowd. The first-gen model had a clever idea — half game console, half streaming box — but a cumbersome design. The second-gen model corrected a lot of the lingering issues, but still cost an awful lot of money (up to $300) in a market where 4K HDR streamers usually go for $50.

With the new Nvidia Shield TV ($150), the company is trying something a little different. And, after having spent some time with the new gadget, I can attest that a little different equals a lot better. Once you accept the Shield TV’s strange design (let’s not mince words: It’s an oversize cigarette lighter), it can do a whole lot.
