A compact TV box…
In terms of their design, the Nvidia Shield TV and its Pro version have nothing to do. Indeed, if the Pro took over the design that made the success of the previous model, the classic Shield TV updated in 2019 adopts a completely different cylindrical format, in “stick”. Thanks to this compactness, it can easily slip behind a television. The only downside to this small format: the connectors will be less extensive than on the Pro version, with simply an HDMI port, an Ethernet port and a microSD slot to expand storage. This Shield TV also does not have a USB port to, for example, connect a gamepad, but you can still connect one thanks to Bluetooth 5 compatibility.
