Planning to buy an Android TV box, then take a look at NVidia Shield TV, as it is the best that you can get right now. Packed up with all the features that you need in the first place, NVidia Shield TV is the device to go with when you are an entertainment craver. To be able to use NVidia Shield TV, you need a remote control, which not just fulfills its obvious functions, but also complements NVidia Shield TV.
It’s not that NVidia doesn’t provide a remote along with its streaming device, but that remote is so little that you will find using it to be annoying rather than cute. Moreover, if you misplace that remote in the house, then it will take you ages to find it (exaggerating a bit), but the fact is, the remote is small. The only thing that goes in favor of the original remote controller is that it comes with NVidia Shield controller support.
If you are looking for some good replacements (which I’m guessing you are), then take a look at below-mentioned options. I’m sure you’re going to find a remote of your choice.
The NVIDIA Shield Game Controller
The Game Controller by NVIDIA is available at $59, and it does all those things that you expect from a normal remote controller. But, that’s not where good things end. This game remote controller has a lot more latched onto it, which you are going to like. It has got a D-Pad and a couple of sticks and few more buttons that you will only be able to find out about after you use them.
If you are looking to play games on your NVidia Shield TV, then I’d rather suggest that you should go for this remote controller. As far as the company’s original remote controller is concerned, you can put it in a drawer because that won’t be used for a long-long time.
Logitech Harmony Companion
If you’d ask me as to which remote control is my favorite, then I will definitely choose this one. This remote controller is available at $140, which seems a bit pricey, but then there are features that justify the price suitably. This remote comes with the Harmony Hub, so it can be connected to the internet via Wi-Fi network and perform a number of tasks. The remote is capable of making Bluetooth connections, which is a good feature to have. It will be interesting to see how this remote talks to the Shield TV.
The price of this remote is close to the price of NVidia Shield TV, but you need to understand that you are not using this device with NVidia Shield TV, but for a number of other devices. I can’t recall any device that wouldn’t work with this remote, so it is a great buy.
Logitech Harmony Elite
You can call this an upgraded version of what we’ve just discussed. If you are willing to pay $300 for a remote that looks beautiful and performs tonnes of functions, then this remote is up for a buy. It comes with a color touchscreen, which makes using it a lot easier. This remote is bigger than the Harmony Companion, but I would not recommend this remote if you are just looking for a decent remote that could perform all the necessary functions. This remote is only suitable for those who want to have a stylish remote and can also pay for it.
It is up to you to decide as to which remote you want to go with. So, pick from any of the above-mentioned three remote controls and you’ll be able to access NVidia Shield TV in a much easier way. For more details, you can take help of NVidia Shield support providers.
