NVIDIA Shield 4K Android TV Review - The BFF for your 4K TV

NVIDIA Does A Lot in a Small Space

 

Even for a tech junkie like myself, I'm surprised NVIDIA was able to cram this much technology prowess into a tiny, slick-looking box. Microsoft and Sony still have huge consoles with the Xbox One and PS4 and are barely able to keep up at 720p @ 30FPS let alone 4K like Shield.

In saying that, the Shield is positively small at first glance - and from every side, too.

NVIDIA has provided plenty of outputs on the Shield, with a microSD card slot, micro USB port, two full-sized USB 2.0 ports, GbE for network connectivity, an HDMI 2.0 output for 4K goodness, and the super-small proprietary power connector.

In the box, you'll receive the Shield itself, a Shield controller, micro USB cable, 4K-capable HDMI 2.0 cable, and the power cable to get it all up and running. Not only that, but you'll get the super-awesome NVIDIA Shield remote, which has quite a few tricks up its sleeve.

 

As for the detailed weight and size, the Shield measures in at 25mm x 210mm x 130mm (1.0 x 8.3 x 5.1 inches) - HWD. When it comes to weight, it's light at just 654g (or 23oz).
