Because I thought this was Red Flag *DEALS*.
It's a deal for them because it keeps selling out, so they're sharing the in stock notification. But because this thing is so popular and people are always posting about it, there should probably be one nvidia shield thread in the ongoing deals forum.

I bought this last christmas around the 250 price and it has been worth every dollar. Highly recommended purchase.

Went to buy it from staples but realized my 20 off coupon is no longer valid. Time to hold off until another sale as I have the 2017 version and its good, but want the better remote and Dolby upgrades.

Great media box

And if you’re not gaming the vero 4K is about $80 cheaper and has a lot more support for HD audio formats like Atmos. Plus you don’t have to hack and slash, OSMC is baked into the unit.

Shield uses Android TV OS with built in CC Ultra and regular updates (even 2015 model still gets updates) while generic boxes use regular Android with no updates or CC support. Much more optimized and user friendly for TV use.

yeah but the 4k+ is the only one that can actually compete becuase it runs an s905D with gigabit and uses 4.9 kernel and goes for alot more thaqn 80 bucks like over 100 pounds.

Which you can pick up an s905x3 4gb ram much cheaper with equal playback on coreelec. they have some gigabit usb 3 versions for around 60 at amazon/prime and an even cheaper 2g/16gb versions with both 2.5/5ghz too but no gigabit for around 45 at banggood.

for 120 look at an odroid n2. Honestly I think s905x4 is soon to be released and its gonna support av1.

My thing is that I need a device that will be able to run Atmos stuff. No other players on the market do it.

I also have faith that the OSMC team is going to keep working and get DV going.

Thing is every other device has ports of the media players, but the Vero has OSMC as its base.

I’ve messed around with Pi units before and while the odroid is nice, the support just isn’t fast enough for my liking.

Even hotter it's $259.99 now. :) Love Nvidia Shield, constant updates and the new remote is so much better than that stick of gum remote that freezes and eats up batteries like no tomorrow. :)

While I've never had an issue with the old remote freezing or eating batteries, it DOES get lost in the couch too well.

Mine is always freezing, I even have to eject the batteries sometimes to get it working again (with fresh coin batteries too). I love the new remote, especially the find new button on the this 2019 model!

If you want to play 4K files on Plex, play games or use it as a Plex server, get the Pro. If it's strictly an upscale box for streaming services and 1080p Plex files, the Tube ought to be fine

I'm buying a 4K TV this year and how does the 4K and upscale work for the Nvidia shield Pro? Does it auto detect the TV capability and upscale or play media automatically in 4K HDR/Dolby vision etc?

Definitely get the PRO if you're looking to play 4k HDR/Dolby Vision files.

Can the non pro play 4k hdr files from an attached hard drive okay? Also I read it doesn't support youtube HDR. Thats dissapointing.
