The shield ecosystem started with the Shield Portable (gaming device), then the shield tablet a year later and the latest is the Shield Android TV. There are two versions; a 16gb and a 500GB design to be a stationary device in a way to compete with other streaming devices on the market like, Fire TV, Apple TV, and others. IT has HDMI 2.0, Ethernet, two USB ports and a Micro SD card slot for expandable storage specially if you get the 16gb version.
As a gaming system this is awesome, and although it will not replace your Xbox One or PS4 it has a pretty good game selection of PC titles you can enjoy. Not all android games are supported on the android tv. This Android TV is a great living room addition, you can now watch your favorite movies and tv shows in stunning 4k with this device. The shield remote is unique, very light and has voice command to make search very easy. You can access great apps like Netflix, Hulu, YouTube, Plex, Kodi and much more. It has its limitations with some apps and games but overall it is very good. The price is also a drawback for some people but many do say that apps like Kodi run so much faster that it might be worth it at the end.
