The 500gb is not a MUST imo, I believe can stream your files from NAS.

The reason I still want the new ATV is because I can access my central music database and I can airplay too. If Nvidia can do these tasks I am more than happy to give it a shot. But for pure Android box fans, this is probably the top end stuff.

So if you take out the Apple Music, there is nothing in the new ATV that challenges the NVIDIA shield. NVIDIA will support 4K streaming, which even the new ATV does not support. I am a apple guy and have 4 devices in my house, but just cant get my head around lot of features which ATV should have had in the new version.

app ecosystem. Though one got to weigh the pros and cons of it.

Kodi 15.2 RC3 now supports the correct Auto framerate switching.

But unfortunately, we have to wait for Kodi 16.0 final release if you want DTS-HD and Dolby TrueHD support.

Look interesting but the critical reviews on amazon seem consistent about the build quality.

I just got a discount code from Amazon for US$50 off for Sheild TV/Pro.  I have put it in my checkout list and shipping is also free now.  So basically I will only be paying US$150 for this item.

You may want to check your email if you got this discount code as well. I think I put this item in my "Saved for later" list.  Will be confirming the purchase later in the afternoon.

I ordered mine on 1 Nov and chose free shipping.  It got shipped on 3 Nov and was enroute via iParcel.  When I checked today's status, the parcel got rejected by the shipping agent and has been returned back to Amazon.

Had a quick online chat with Amazon customer service as to why the shipment was rejected.  After checking, Amazon decided to ship a "replacement order" free of charge via Global Priority Shipping. Hope to receive it early next week.  So I am basically getting a free Nvidia Shield TV. Yeah!  That's what I call Customer Service.  I would have just settled for free Priority Shipping.  Didn't expect them to give me the unit for free.

Why you say that the unit is "free"?   Didn't you pay for it when it first shipped?

Must have gotten the refund and Amazon shipped one for free.
