The old one is also 4K and has the exact same internals as the 'new' model. In fact, the 2015 model is arguably better as it also has a MicroSD slot which the new one doesn't have.

The internals are the same. If anything the original version is better (imo) as it includes micro-sd card slot, micro-usb and IR port which were all removed from the re-launched version.
I've got the old one... gutted the controller now has a fault where it needs to be plugged in to the unit constantly. Problem that has occurred for other people. Seems nothing can be done except buy a new controller. Expensive.

all gone now!! - but might be worth bookmarking the page if future units come back on sale.

As for the 2015 vs 2017 - yes the micro-sd card slot, micro-usb and IR port have been removed - but the new version includes both the updated controller and remote control and is smaller in size - it really depends on what you need it for (i personally wouldn't use the micro-sd card slot, micro-usb or IR port - but will be using the remote control)8)
The new model does have micro sd slot (I have the 500gb version, maybe that's different)

Oh right, didn't realise that. What do you guys use your Shield for anyway? I got mine to set it up as a Plex server but it can't do channels yet so it's currently sat there doing nothing
