I am wanting to get my hands on a new (if possible) 2017 Nvidia Shield TV. I would prefer pickup in Auckland if possible as the money is burning a hole in my pocket and I am keen get my hands on asap.

 

I would consider a used unit in excellent condition or the earlier model for the right price.

 

cheers

Older ones are actually better - same chip, but they removed the IR receiver in the new model. :)

I am looking at getting one of these, does anyone have any feed back on how good they are?

 

 

 

Looking at doing 4K Streaming from PC for games onto the TV, anyone do this, how is it?

 

 

 

Cheers

If it's anything like XB1 and PS4, I find the quality & latency sub par and not really a comparable experience especially with anything that has high frames e.g. racing or FPS.

The lack of an IR receiver isn't an issue l if you have a Harmony Hub, or another device that has Bluetooth control.

 

Actually, it is more of a blessing - BT control is near instant vs IR which I found quite laggy
