In a few days you can use it towards a Shield controller to go with it, or maybe a new RTX 3000 card whenever those are back in stock Face With Tears Of Joy

I'm tempted... Is the UI snappy on this thing? Like with zero lag unlike those cheap Android tablets? Trying to justify its purchase even though I haven't even seen nor used the UI on the LG CX yet.

I mean, I guess I could pick up a NAS to pair along with it so I don't have to run an HDMI cable to my TV anymore, like it's 2005 Face With Tears Of Joy

Should update your post OP as this is going on sale everywhere now.

Also available at Amazon.ca for $229.99 (save $30). Can still use UGO to purchase Amazon.ca gift card to cover the cost and get $25 back from it's $255 total price with tax (UGO gives $10 for every $100 spent during their Christmas promo). That brings the total price of the Shield Pro down to $229.99 - $25.54 = $204.45 before tax, or $255.40 - $25.54 = $229.86 all in (here in BC... taxes will be different in different provinces, of course).

The UI is the snappiest of all media boxes thanks to the high end chip in it, the Tegra X1+. This is the best streaming, local playback and emulation box on the market. If you purchase a NAS to store movies and shows, the Shield Pro can play them all back at the highest of resolutions and bitrates with the best audio and video codecs without breaking a sweat.

Don't forget too: this Shield Pro (only the Pro, not the standard version) has a built in Plex server that you can use with an external HD to serve your movies and shows both to it and any other Plex client (phones, other tvs inside and outside your home, etc). If movies and shows are your main purpose for picking up a NAS you might skip doing so and use the Shield Pro instead. Of course, a NAS has far more uses than this, but just saying.

Good deal, tempting but have to resist. Debating, decision decision?

I think you can also price match this at Staples and get a Staples gift card

Can probably stack a discount code as well

so you're saying the shield pro can be used as a nas if you need for nas is video playing? I'm planning to buy an entry level nas so I can store the movies I downloaded and then I can watch them anywhere

Great comment. My parents are using the Pro as their Plex server (since their serving up 4K blurays going over a network wasn't possible) with a basic external HD connected and it's been bulletproof, no issues at all. I am debating getting a Pro for myself and moving my 2017 Shield to our bedroom

For anyone on the fence - this is 'THE' best Media Player you can buy. Specially if you are interested in Dolby Vision & Atmos - others are plain finicky. Some will handle one streaming service or the other better. The Shield Pro, takes everything like a champ.

I am just wondering should I buy a 2nd one for my 2nd TV :)

I read the shield pro is great for emulation, how does it compare to a raspberry pi 4? Also how do you install retroarch?
Thanks!

Just helping to spread the word because you just know people are going to complain they missed it and then complain some more about not having a time machine.
