I think both are very very good... depends on your usage/requirements.

also a good comparison review was shared previously, with some comments from our other member here:

Advantage of Apple TV is that it can do Netflix Dolby Atmos (on Dolby Digital Plus) and I also prefer its Picture Quality over the Shield

Advantage of Shield is its flexibility, you can play MKVs via usb and bitstreaming lossless audio. Can also bitstream lossless audio via NAS and PLEX.

I think on/off button function, SD card slot and a larger casing -- which could better augment heat.

anything else, NVSATV 2015 users?

have updated mine to Android P -- not much usable update with the previous Android Oreo.  but I've checked for anything that has changed especially those within the Settings... it became more simplified as some were grouped together.

on the outset, we also got 1 click shorter when turning the unit off.  I was actually dismayed of that extra button press in Oreo version.  glad that they listened to the users and removed that last and useless one  >:D

am just as happy and contented with the way NVIDIA efforts for update even a 3yr-old Shield model.  it got updated with 2 major OS upgrades: from Nougat to Oreo to P =)

Halos in every update there are issues, but that does not mean na hindi nila ma-correct in future updates so long as the devise is still working and functioning esp. on the apps you are using then go for the update. maybe the advantages are greater than the disadvantages...

Updates are really hit of miss.

I have updated my shield and acted semi bricked reboots every 15 min.  Factory resets, changing tv sets, Power brick replacement did not help.

Was able to update it to the latest update that time and was flawless since then.

Now I am not going to gamble of updating it to this new update that might give me issues.  Non of the update features are compelling enough for me to even update.

Now I am not going to gamble of updating it to this new update that might give me issues.  Non of the update features are compelling enough for me to even update.

I remember that I upgraded my Shield to SE 6.3 last 2018. It downloaded 19MB OTA update from the server and restarted my shield and after that gave me a warning message with a big yellow exclamation mark that google needs to check for corruption.
I was able to revive it but it was a lengthy process by unlocking the bootloader and flashing recovery images and etc..  http://www.pinoydvd.com/index.php/topic,201375.msg2597022.html#msg2597022

After what I experienced, when Oreo(SE7.0) came out I never upgraded my shield.  Just had a sinking feeling that it might happen again.  I just stayed with SE6.3(nougat) as long as I can up until Aug 2019 last week.

Well last week I was able to successfully upgrade it to SE 9.0(pie).. but I needed to upgrade it to Oreo first then Pie.  So far everything went smooth.  Wew! ;D

I haven't updated mine yet for the same reasons.
Some experienced old apps not working after the update including launchers.

Updated to Pie.

As expected my shield went bonkers.

Random reboots again and shut downs. Several reboots nothing changed. Tried pulling the HDMI cord out  and booted the shield then reconnecting the shield after booting seems to fix the problem.

I tried it before but what i did was boot the shield from another TV/Projector then after booting and shutting down. I connected it to my main tv/projector. And somehow the shutdowns stopped.

My suspicion is shield needs to reset HDMI connection/information after an update just to work properly.  And disconnecting/reconnecting the HDMI cable allows the shield to reset HDMI configs and  properly work as the connection is presumed to be a new TV/projector.
