    "The Rokus are pretty good though if you just have a regular television, no need to spring for the 4k version. Just go with a basic version, it's much cheaper."

    "I think this is ok but if I could I would go back and get something different. I don't use it as much as I thought I would so I am not sure if it is worth the money I spent."

    "I've had it only for a day (the base version, not Pro). So far I love it's streaming apps. Netflix, Amazon, and Plex support 4K HDR, Youtube, Google Movies, Vudu and Ultraflix and a few others support 4K (no HDR for those yet, rumored to come later for Vudu, Google Movies and Youtube). The Netflix app had to be updated on the Google Play Store to get HDR support. Sadly, the Sony Ultra app (where you can own or rent Sony's 4K HDR movies) is available but is unable to play 4KHDR items. Feels much faster and responsive than my Roku, and better than my Apple TV as that only does 1080p. Sadly, no Google Home/Assistant support with handsfree mic yet - that apparently comes later this year, even though Nvidia has been touting it as if it's already supported. For now, you have to press a button on the remote or the controller to talk to the system. That works very well. An annoying thing initially - accidentally touching the vertical touch area for volume control on the remote would pop up a message saying volume is controlled with the amp. I solved it in Settings by enabling CEC Audio. Now the little Shield remote also seamlessly controls the amplifier volume, and no annoying popups on the TV when that area is accidentally touched - easy to do. The interface is fast. Launching apps, browsing content in them, playing is almost instantaneous. It supports Dolby ATMOS in Vudu. My Shield is connected to my Denon amplifier which supports ATMOS."

    "I have tried many players and I always go back to Roku. It doesn't lose it's WiFi like the others and it's not full of ads like any Amazon device."

    "I've tried nearly all the set top boxes. While this one is one of the pricier, there really is a reason for that. The intuitive design and incredible picture quality is second to none. There is no waiting or buffering due to its incredible speed."
