    "I would not consider this one of the best devises for 4k streaming based on the fact that it is so proprietary. Amazon devises are hard pressed to compete with Roku or Chromecast for what is available. Unless you are a diehard Amazon prime video watcher I would choose a different devise. "

    "This is a 4K streaming and gaming option from a brand that is known for awesome graphics. The Nvidia Shield is a great option if you're looking to replace your cable/satellite TV provider. I think it's great to choose the content you want to watch with minimal to no advertisements."

    "Personally I think this was just okay. I never had any issues with it, and the 4K streaming is amazing. Still, I miss my Chromecast which made streaming from any device so easy (this has to have android devices)."

    "I cut cable a while ago and this box works well. I found it relatively easy to set up too. There are better boxes on the market though. If you're new to streaming and want to test it out and how it works for you, this isn't a bad box at all. It gives some experience with streaming so you will know what you're looking for in the long run. If you're not too picky about the applications you have access to, this is a good box as well. The price is a little high as compared to others you can buy that offer more. "

    "I love this box, I can't believe the quality. 10 years ago, I'd say that this level of fidelity in video streaming would never be possible, but here I am today eating crow and I love being wrong. I've had zero problems, it works exactly as I'd expect it to. A+"

    "The Vooran Wireless Display Dongle is a good way to capture the screen from your iPhone or Android and project it on to your TV. I had a hard time setting it up and therefore, used the Amazon Fire Stick instead. In my opinion, the Amazon Fire Stick is the best device for 4k streaming."
