The NVIDIA SHIELD TV, even if it is almost 2 years old now (our review), is still the smart home gadget I use the most every single day. It controls my entire living room operation, from the content I consume on my TV, thanks to Android TV, to some smart home items. It’s still awesome at what I need it to do, still runs great, and is small enough that you can really tuck it out of sight if that’s your thing.
- UPDATE: Not only is the NVIDIA SHIELD TV $40 off, you can score a free Amazon Echo Dot with it at both Amazon and Best Buy.
Today, probably because of some sort of Black Friday deal, the NVIDIA SHIELD TV with remote is $40 off almost everywhere. That drops the price to $139.99
Worried that it has become outdated? I’m not sure it has. Not only does the unit I have run really good, including the 2015 model I have in my bedroom, but NVIDIA keeps updating it. SHIELD TV picked up its 20th software update in September and another with Amazon Alexa integration week ago.
