Nvidia Shield TV 16GB 2015 Refurb A+ £124.99 @ Student computers

Found 26th Jun 2017
Been looking for an Nvidia Shield 2015 model for a while that wasn't silly money and came across this. There are cheaper options depending on condition but an A+ Nvidia Shield TV for £125 with 12 months warranty seems like a good price to me.

A+ now looks like it's OOS but the following are available at the link

B- £109.99
B+ £114.99
A- £119.99

Still a lot for refurb but it's a decent bit of kit

I agree but if you look at ebay 2nd hand ones are still going for more than this
Is this the same spec internally as the later model? does anyone know if it can be upgraded to have Google assistant?
Why the interest in the 2015 model? I have this one and I wondered does it do more than the newer version or something?

Yes same processor and ram internally. The 2017 model is smaller and removed micro sd and IR. The controller and remote are different too. Nvidia have stated that Google Assistant will come to the 2015 model too at some point not sure if the latest update has that yet though.

I use a Harmony Remote without the hub so IR is a must for me. Also the option to have micro sd is good too as I don't really want a USB stick or hard drive hanging off the back of it. Other than that the 2017 and 2015 models are pretty similar.
good price
I have this . Regular updates from nvidia. Very good 4k picture quality
Does this support HDR or do i need the newer model?
I've got this model. Plenty of saport from Nvidia. Has better connectivity then the new model better tv remote IMHO and we will get Google assistancent as and when it's available £125 is a reasonable price better then what you will find on ebay

​yes it does hdr10 no Dolby vision yet tho
Link not working
Have both the Pro and the 16gb 2015 models. Great bit of kit that get used pretty much daily. Needs more catch up services on it tho as only iPlayer is officially on it and the others either won't play or are a pain to navigate with on Android TV.

​seems that A+ grade is now OOS but there are other grades I have updated the link to show all of them
I have this superb but of kit. Im not surprised these go up in price. Unfortunately my controller has to be wired because of some fault with the IR
Does anyone know how these handle Kodi/Netflix etc in terms of variable refresh rate, i.e. are these apps just fixed refresh rate or do they/can they switch between source material refresh rate on demand?

There's a setting in Kodi to "Adjust Display refresh rate" to match the video.

I had a half decent pc running kodi and then switched to this. Have never been happier. Runs 4k content like a dream and as said you can select automatic refresh rate in kodi.
i got a mad catz mojo, which keeps freezing and signal keeps flickering, as when playing kodi video it would stop randomly and bring ya back at menu, any issues with kodi

I've had this once or twice but never looked into it much. I guess its related to kodi itself as this doesnt happen in netflix, youtube etc.

You'll probably already know this but it has Chromecast built in so the apps that the Shield doesn't have, just download them onto your phone, ITV Hub etc, they cast brilliantly & the definition is the same as the official apps on other devices. iPlayer excluded
brought and if don't like it, cex will. take it, but should be improvement over mad catz mojo
is it worth time to increase kodi default cache for when i got poor connection
Had my B+ one delivered today. Box slightly damaged but everything else looks brand new. Well pleased.

Oh no. That's not good. Hermes are rubbish usually aren't they? They left it with my neighbour else might have been 'lost' too.

There's one available here that has some faults with the wifi and bluetooth for £85. So you could still use a harmony remote via infrared and hook it up via ethernet and you're good to go: studentcomputers.co.uk/NVI…tml

I already contacted them and gotta wait 72 hours before they can send me another one. Really hope they get more stock by then though coz hukd ran them out of stock lol

How is this a deal??
I bought this for £119.99 2 years ago new.
How the hell is it a deal to buy it essentially second hand for 6 quid more two years later?
Original Poster
Iirc it was £120 in the Amazon black Friday sale of 2015. That was when I bought my first one. If you look around now even on eBay second hand ones go for more than this.
