This is solid hardware. It'll handle just about anything you throw at it including 4K content, subject to app support, of course. A free Kodi install will handle most odd formats and fill the void where add-ons provide content for which there is no Google Play Store app.
My relationship with this device was good until the last month. Just when I was ready to buy two more Shields for my other rooms, Google Play made a geo-locked app invisible. Not uninstalled, but invisible so that I can't uninstall/reinstall it. Still stinging from that, I was greeted one day with the June 2021 OS update that now injects ads for partner content onto the top 1/3 of the screen. Yeah... you'll be paying $260 to be shown ads. One could argue that loading a different launcher is a solution or that you don't spend that much time on the home screen so what's the point? I guess you need to decide if $260 of your hard-earned money should go to an ad-serving box.
June 2021 OS update = $260 for ads.

I'm giving this a one star because the images in the promotional information are just doctored stock photos so do not represent the capabilities of the unit. For proof I provide a link to the unaltered stock photo. Close examination shows the boats and the vehicle on the road are exactly the same. If they have to do this kind of trickery to sell their features, the features cannot be that good. I hate lies in advertising! It's also probably not legal. https://thumbs.dreamstime.com/z/manarola-night-terre-la-spezia-province-ligurian-coast-italy-view-manarola-night-terre-la-spezia-province-ligurian-coast-114462467.jpg
