Nvidia Shield Mini 2018
Today I am reviewing the new mini version of the Nvidia Shield, Then I will compare the difference between the 2018 model and the 2015 model. The differences are very small, but definitely an upgrade.
having had the 2015 model for a few years now, and I can say surely that this model is great, no problems with it what so ever. I first had the 500GB model, sold it for the 16GB model. I think the higher Gb model is a bit slower than the smaller Gb model.
When it comes to resetting the 500Gb model, it took me 3 hours to fully erase the hard drive.
The new mini model is 16Gb, looks very tiny compare to different Android boxes. The box is lightweight and is very small to fit in your hand. You still have the same features as the older model, only upgraded the software, added more apps to the application section, like Amazon music, the CW app.
The difference between the two is the newer shield does not come with an HDMI cord, only the remote control, power cord, and the shield.
When comparing the Nvidia Shield, to any other Android tv box, this one would be rated ten plus, there is nothing in the same class as this streaming/gaming device. If you are wanting to use this shield for your streaming needs, you will have no buffering.
The Nvidia shield is great for gaming, super fast motion and great quality video 4K. All games look good on this shield, so realistic that you will think you were in the game playing it. Here are a few pictures to compare the differences from the older model to the newer mini version.
