It plays HDR files from the USB with KODI or streaming with PLEX. To my knowledge it's still just about the only way to do that but I've not kept up much with this kind of tech in the last couple years.

You must be joking. The Nvidia Shield runs rings around the crappy Roku. And Roku is about to lose a lot of apps because of their greedy "all money must go through us policy"

Firesticks and Rokus are garbage, and even the Fire Cube (yes, I have them all) can't compare to the shield. I even hacked mine so that I can press the nextflix button a short press and open plex. Long press, open netflix and double click it, and it opens hulu.
I've owned every version of Firesticks /Fire TVs except the cubes. I also own an Apple TV 4k (2017). My Shield is the 2017 version. My breakdown below:

Firestick 4k Max: Best bang for your buck streamer. Can be found on sale for around $35.

Pros:

Affordable
Supports every iteration of HDR (Dolby Vision, HDR10, HDR10+, HLG)
AV1 support
Can play Youtube HDR
Can sideload apps (Kodi, etc.)
Wifi 6

Cons:

UI is ad-supported
Needs additional hardware to run ethernet and increase storage
No bitstreaming of HD audio
Occasionally needs to be rebooted


Apple TV 4K: Best pure streamer. 2021 model can be found on sale for $120-$130

Pros:

Very fluid UI. Fastest, smoothest navigation
No ads (mostly) There is autoplay enabled to some of their music video selection
Airplay 2. If you have Airplay 2 devices this makes multi room audio incredibly easy
Gigabit Ethernet

Cons:

Locked down to apple's ecosystem (No Kodi, etc.)
No usb ports for storage or game controllers
No HDR10+
No AV1 support
No Youtube HDR


Nvidia Shield: Swiss-army knife of streamers. Can be found on sale for $170

Pros:

Great for game emulators
64 bit Android (can run Dolphin emulator, Kodi 64 bit, etc)
Has usb ports for storage, game controllers, webcams, etc
Can sideload apps (Kodi, etc)
Can use Google Duo with supported webcam
Can run Plex server
Can run Channels DVR server
Bitstreams HD audio
AI upscaling (I do not have this version)
Gigabit ethernet

Cons:

Ad-supported
Last update introduced many issues (I did not update)
No HDR10+
No Youtube HDR
Occasionally needs to be rebooted

I'm sure I missed a few things but this is a general idea. I have a use case for all three streamers so I have them all connected to my main display. It really comes down to personal use case. I'm personally hoping NVidia upgrades the Shield to support AV1, HDR10+ and Youtube HDR. That would eliminate my need for the Firestick 4K Max. Being able to have the game on and airplay to other rooms makes the Apple TV 4K a keeper to me.

Hope this helps

I do want another one and this was cheaper than when I bought it earlier this year too. Overall works really well, especially to stream 4k Dolby Vision movies from my plex server.

Only issue is that Nvidia Shield Pro is a bit old now since it was first released in 2019. Is there any plans for an update does anyone know?

I mean why this over a Google TV and. Steam Deck and PC? I remember you could do some hacky shit with it but I don't remember what it is and that was the only thing that ever made me think it was worth the money. It wasn't just 4K streaming, there were some other cool things that you could do with it, but I would appreciate anybody chiming in with the refresher.

Any much cheaper alternative? Looking for a player with android tv, certified netflix, got atleast 1 usb port and almost as fast if not faster than the Shield TV.
The only things faster than the Shield Pro is a mini PC. None of the other "sticks" come close.

This is the best android tv experience you will get. My 2015 shield tv still works great. That being said; we are past due for an update (Maxwell based), and even with inflation this still remains at $200 or less. I am going to wait for Ryzen 7000 series which should walk all over this at a higher price point.

There is gonna be a new model this year for sure. It's been 3 years and we are now starting to see discounts. I bet a new one is announced by November.
