Pros: Would be killer if it worked right

Cons: Network connection

Other Thoughts: Will not hold a solid connection on wifi or Ethernet. Spent hours online trying to fix. Tons and tons of people with same problems. Roku box in the same setup is flawless.

best streaming device out

Pros: the console is smaller, comes with remote and controller.

Cons: the new remote sucks. it's not rechargeable like the old version, it's all plastic. the old remote was brushed aluminum, could be recharged.

Other Thoughts: while the new controller is better, I don't know why they downgraded the quality and rechargeable feature of the remote.

Nvidia Shield After Proper Kodi Setup

Pros: After doing considerable research on various httpc (home theater pc) options, I settled on the one that had bullet proof (mostly) user reviews. All of the other options boasted of great specs in many cases and yet people were reporting significant problems.
I like knowing that I have something that will carry me through the next couple of years and this box absolutely does that. Streaming is a breeze. There are no performance issues with this box at all whatsoever. I got it mainly for Kodi and not gaming. I will use it for gaming and it is a great option for that as well. I do game but not so much so that there were concerns for me in that regard.
I installed the nolimits magic build and bought a Real Debrid subscription for 6 months for only around $20 USD. Real Debrid makes all the difference. If there are people claiming that it is not worth the minor expense to try Real Debrid for 6 months, I suspect that these folks are not configuring the service properly within Kodi. Addons must be set up as well as kodi for this feature and then premium links will flow on nearly every title.
Thankfully I also discovered for use with Kodi and I am ecstatic. If you have never used this service, you (like me) will probably not realize that you need it until you try it for yourself. Trakt is a site that keeps track of everything you have watched and plan on watching and keeps track of these titles across multiple platforms. Trakt is a feature rich site that allows you to look up basically anything that has ever been produced and add the title to your watchlist. Plus you can browse trending and popular titles of movie and tv listings and add those to your list as well.
Some might be troubled by the idea of a third party website keeping such close tabs on your viewing habits but I personally am not. Comcast and other cable companies are already doing this anyway plus Trakt does not require a validation email at all.
So, in closing I am obviously very happy with this purchase. A whole new world is open to as a result and I highly recommend this hardware for streaming home theater.

Cons: The only con that I have is the sensitivity of the volume control on the included remote. Not a big deal but it should be better imho.
