I am still not sure what do I need from it, the Roku come with my TV seems to be just fine for YouTube, Netflex etc. I was excited to read the Shield can mirror game from computer until I saw it needs a Nvidia GPU, which I don't. How about live TV streaming? Can that be done easily on Shield? What else the Shield can do which makes people exciting?

Among other things, Shield has Geforce Now to cloud stream games that you already own on Steam and Uplay, does proper 24 Hz for movies, and Plex media server that can serve content from its USB drives.

SAVE35 doesn't work either - "This discount code does not qualify for this order right now"
While the save50 was for cart over $200, the save35 is for cart over $250. Try that.

SAVE35 is for over $250, not $200

I'm thinking of going with EVO 860 1TB for PS4 pro and a wireless charging case for AirPods to use the SAVE35 over $250.

I use it for Kodi and watching live TV (sports) and TV Shows/Movies which are separate from Netflix etc. But you need some knowledge on what apps or add-ons you need on Kodi to get the most out of it.

If you strictly use netflix or disney+ etc (ie. anything that is on your roku TV already), then the shield won't serve much of a purpose for you

Otherwise, features and performance are pretty much the same. Hard to justify $210 if you already have a 2017 shield pro.
If you just want a streaming Andoid TV box, the non pro is fine. I bought one and am using it with a separate plex server and it streams 4K OK with Kodi and plex addon. The native android TV Plex app is flakey with 4K. Many buy the pro to get additional memory and USB ports so they can install Plex and keep media on an external drive. This $50 off 200 is a good price for a new Shield TV since it just came out late last year. Remote is also bluetooth, so that's going to require a Harmony hub if you use a universal remote.

Staples always pulls this crap. Use a valid code on Apple product and then they cancel the order. They did the same some months ago when I ordered an Apple Watch, and they didn't even email me to tell me they were cancelling the order. I only found out when I called 2 weeks later. Crappy company run by a bunch of bozos. Wont be long before Staples follows FutureShop.
