Product Expert media players

Turn your TV into an all-in-one media center and game console with the NVIDIA SHIELD TV Pro. This smart mediacenter with built-in Chromecast allows you to watch your favorite Netflix series in 4K. You can also play your PC games on your TV, in HD quality. Stream games like Watch Dogs 2 and Overwatch from the special game collection from the NVIDIA super computer via GeForce NOW.

"Maybr cool for controller-gaming, but not for anything else."

Alexis Otto | 9 August 2019

  • Pros:
    Cool design
  • Pros:
    Very small
  • Con:
    Transfer of files not easy nor fast

Bought it especially to tranfer files easily from pc or laptop wirelessly to my hdd connected to shield. Incredibly cumbersome - after various fora found an option. Then it turned out to be incredibly slow. I'll be returning it.

Android box met turbo en overdrive, goed product...

Review score 5 out of 5 stars
5 / 5 stars

  • Pros:
    Snel te installeren als je bekent bent met Android
  • Pros:
    Games streamen van steam via GeForce Now in de beste kwalitiet
  • Pros:
    Intuitive interface en werkt zoals geadverteerd
  • Pros:
    IPTV, Kodi, Netflix, YouTube werken vlekkeloos.
  • Pros:
    Updates die elke keer functionaliteit toevoegen.
  • Con:
    Beetje weinig eigen opslagruimte, maar uit te breiden met USB stick
  • Con:
    Sommige apps alleen via een omweg te installeren.

Na 2 X een "Chinees" Android boxje die na enkele maanden niet meer werkte of geen updates kreeg, nu maar even echt geld uitgegeven, vind hem voorlopig zijn flinke meerprijs toch dik waard.
