Default Apple TV 4k vs Nvidia Shield TV

I was wondering if anyone here owns both an Apple TV 4k and a Nvidia Shield TV and which one they prefer?

How many streaming devices did you tried out and returned? You mentioned that you tried out the Roku Ultra, Nvidia Shield TV, ATV4k, the Sony X800 4k UHD blu-ray player (only for streaming purposes). All of them you said have issues. What will be next for you, a PS4 Pro or a Xbox One X, both only for streaming purposes.

You use to own a Nvidia Shield TV and took it back due to some issues that you had with it. The latest Nvidia Shield TVs still have issues such as movie frame skipping in both 24 fps and 23.976 fps. Its bad at upscaling. It does not have match video content feature like the ATV4k. Its periodically slow with the UI gui and Kodi and Plex. Also it has random audio dropouts.

I'm wondering if you got rid of your ATV4k due to really minor issues it has. If you did that, it was a bad mistake, even though you had a lot of movies in your iTunes collection.

Out of all the streaming devices, the ATV4k is the most reliable one, even though it has a few minor issues.

I'm surprised no one else is answering so far.

Echo everything Vor4 said below, I've owned both (and really wanted to like the Shield since it can stream my PC games as well) but ATV is just more solid performance wise as well as the 3rd party apps being kept up to date more.

Had both, sold on the Shield TV and don't regret it for a second.

Apple TV all the way.
