I think Pro provides hw 4k upscaling too. For those who like that feature
08-17-2021 at 12:41 PM
I always here avoid the tube version. Less ram, 32 bit vs 64 bit. I would avoid the tube and spend the extra for the pro. Unless you’re using this strictly and only for a streaming device.
08-17-2021 at 12:41 PM
If you plan on needing USB ports or making it a Plex Media server than ya go Pro. but if its mainly a really good streamer then you should be good with this.

Fair warning tho, this one only comes with a SD card slot, and my Shield used up space pretty quick on just apps
08-17-2021 at 12:41 PM
For me, the two biggest differences are the form factor and the PLEX server capability. Honestly, you should be using something better than the Shield to run a PLEX media server if you're into that. If you're using this to stream media, the tube will get you everything you need. You may have a need for the better hardware if you're using this for something outside of the average use case.

I hate the tube as a physical piece of hardware, though. It isn't designed to be displayed, and is really awkward to put in a cabinet because it's a small cylinder with cables coming out of either end. This thing should have jsut been a box like its sibling devices.

I'll throw in a plug for the AI upscaling. It's truly awesome no matter which version you get.

I would get the pro version if you need to have any apps running in the background. If not, then this one is good for you. Some IPTV services need a secondary app running in the background. If that’s the case for you, go with the Pro.

Yes. And w TrueHD and no conversion to PCM like what the latest (and all) Apple TVs still have to do.

I own both (gf prefers apple devices) but the Shield Pro is what's hooked up to the home theater in our basement.
08-17-2021 at 01:15 AM
Yes, but it will not play the 4k content without freezing or stuttering, especially if it's relatively high bitrate

It doesn't have the xbox game pass app, but you could probably sideload it.

last time I checked it does not have the xfinity streaming app. it can be sideloaded but when I did that about a year ago it was very buggy.

It does not include a browser. You can sideload Chrome on it like any other Android TV device, but it's not great with the included remote - you'll want to get a USB or Bluetooth mouse. I do regularly use Chrome on my older model (2015) Shield Pro, works fine even for things like video calls.

Just a bit warning that Nvidia pushed Google TV interface which is heavy on ads. Killed the experience.
Roku doesn't even have Spectrum. Blame Spectrum being greedy.



The Pro does gaming better and has USB ports for external HDDs.
Is it worth holding out and buying the Pro version for $199? Any big differences?

$129 price point has been lowest since Black Friday 2020. Have a few of these in the house and has been performing well with no issues. Apple TV has been added recently to Android TV among other apps. Wished it had Spectrum TV app.

Love my Pro for 4K UHD remux playback using Plex. On my secondary TVs I have a few Fire stick 4Ks and an old Chromecast that just does FHD. Personally I only feel the need for top of the line or bottom of the barrel and don't see why someone would buy an "almost Pro" device like the tube, but YMMV
