Nvidia SHIELD Android TV 4K
Nvidia is known to many for having been a market leader for hardware in the gaming industry for years and years, but they have become much more and they are becoming more visible in other industries and the Nvidia SHIELD Android TV 4K is a great example.
This media player is not much bigger than a FireTV and it’s gorgeous. We didn’t think it would perform much better than other media players in the same category, but it is strong! This media player will play most of your content. Compared to similar players it will run zones, animations, ticker, and so forth pretty smoothly. The only thing you can’t do is an advanced playlist and zones.
