WE ARE TRYING TO ASCERTAIN IF NVIDIA WILL BE DOING ANY MORE SHIELD PRO RUNS AT THIS TIME. IF THE SHIELD PRO TRULY IS CANCELLED WE WILL BE ENDING THE LISTING. UPDATE: We've located a new limited source of Shield Pros. We're having to raise prices as they are much more expensive to obtain than before, but we will be able to resume filling Shield Pro orders until this new source is exhausted. As no new Shield Pros are being made, please be aware supply will eventually run out and we may be forced to cancel an order.IF YOU HAVE A SHIELD PRO YOU WOULD LIKE UPGRADED, WE DO STILL OFFER AND WILL CONTINUE TO OFFER AN UPGRADE SERVICE! This is an NVIDIA Shield Pro (2017 model) with custom-capacity storage. This Shield Pro is like any Shield Pro you would get from a retailer, except it has up to four times the storage space and up to ten times the storage speed depending on the storage option you select.
If you're wanting more space for using the Shield Pro as a media server, or lightning fast performance, our customized version will deliver exactly that. All work is performed at a workbench by a professional, certified technician observing full ESD precautions. The Shield Pro will be used by the technician in order to install the system software on the the upgraded drive, verify functionality, and perform stress testing to ensure there are no problems before being expertly repackaged exactly as they come from the factory.
We will also update the firmware of peripherals (controller, remote) to the latest version and top off their battery charge. However, occasionally failures crop up in testing, sometimes multiple times, and can require a few rebuilds and swapping components to get a unit working right. Please be patient and we will get your order out ASAP! Please be aware, this is a mod, even if very professionally done.Unlike, for instance, a PlayStation or a PC, the Shield Pro is NOT designed to have the internal factory drive upgraded or modified by the user. Please see the end of the listing for details. As an aside, we have recently developed a method, which we have been using on all 2017 model Shield Pros, of performing the upgrades that does NOT require unlocking or otherwise modifying the bootloader, so your Shield also stays as secure as it was from the factory. Upgrading the drive is a very involved, precise, and time-consuming process including directly reprogramming the drive to work with the Shield and manipulating delicate small parts that were not designed to ever be touched by the user.
However, we have been performing this upgrade since March 2016 with no failures thus far; our two technicians are very experienced with the work and know exactly what they're doing. Our upgrades have been 100% compatible with all NVIDIA software and Android OTA system updates issued since the release of Android 6.0 Marshmallow and continue to function flawlessly. We have a 2015 model demo unit that has been functioning and accepting updates without issue since March 2016, and it's still in service.REGARDING STANDARD HARD DISK DRIVES (HDD): The Shield system software was designed to work with at least a solid state hybrid drive (SSHD). We have standard HDD options available, but be aware the OS may be a bit slower and games/apps may take longer to load if we install a standard HDD. If your budget permits, we highly recommend a SSHD at minimum, or a full solid state drive (SSD) for a major performance boost. Please note our Shield Pros are build-to-order, NOT pre-built. Pre-built means they are pre-assembled and sitting around on shelves. Build-to-order means they are assembled to your specifications at the time of order. If we encounter a failure in testing and that delays completion while we replace the part and re-test, we will contact you to let you know the status.
Our quality control takes a bit longer, but it works: we've currently had only ONE return for repair in the past two years. NVIDIA Shield Pro (2017 model). NVIDIA Shield Controller (2017 model) and NVIDIA Shield Remote (2017 model).
Original Box, Packaging, Documentation, and Cabling. Before purchasing we highly recommend familiarizing yourself with the different types of drives and choosing what best meets your needs. These are standard platter-pased hard disk drives. They don't offer a speed advantage over stock HDDs, however they offer far higher capacity.
If the extra speed boost is unneeded, but enormous capacity is required, these are an excellent option. These are magnetic platter-pased hard disk drives like standard HDDs, but with an embedded 8GB SSD that the drive uses to significantly speed up the Shield's operating system and your most frequently-played games or most frequently-used media.Hybrid drives monitor your usage patterns and add the most frequently used files to the 8GB SSD. Hybrids are a great option for getting some of the snappiness and quick load times of full SSDs but without the high price. Solid State Disks offer the ultimate in performance. They can perform up to 10x as fast as a HDD at accessing sequential data, and up to 1000x as fast at accessing random data. They're also silent, low power, cool, and are ultra-reliable.
Your SSD will probably outlive your console even with heavy usage. If you want the ultimate in performance across the board, an SSD is the option you want.
