Pros and cons: Our quick verdict on NVIDIA's new Shield TV

NVIDIA’s new Shield TV is a lot like its old Shield TV — at least, on the inside. Still, the revamped Android TV set-top box is a lot smaller; it has a vastly improved game controller; and it’s a much better deal at $200, since it includes the remote that used to cost an additional $50. The Shield TV also packs in a newer version of NVIDIA’s GeForce Now game streaming service, and it can pipe over titles from your NVIDIA GPU-equipped gaming PC with full support for HDR. Eventually, it’ll also include Google’s Assistant.

The good news if you bought the last Shield TV? You’ll have access to all of the software changes with a quick update, and you can snag the new controller separately for $60. The Shield TV still isn’t a set-top box for everyone, but it could be a useful tool for some gamers.
