START HERE - Pick the Right Kodi Box (updated Dec 2020)
I have over a dozen of these Android boxes, including a Nexus Player, but my new $35 (now$38) R-Box kicks butt. It is a budget Rockchip SoC (I don't like Rockchip),, but the video quality is the best I have ever seen, it also, plays HD audio out of the box. As all oof these *cheap* Android boxes, it only plays Netflix in DVD quality.

Edit, I failed to mention that this $35 R-Box is the only Android box that I have, including the Nexus Player and Minix X8-H Plus, that plays my BlueRay ripped videos encoded in VC-1 flawlessly. My copy of the Dirty Dozen (my favorite, had DVD but had to purchase it on BlueRay) is encoded with VC1 and it plays perfectly.

Edit 2: I have purchased all of my boxes with my hard earned $$$, except for my ADT-1 from Google, and my RK3288 box that Beelink gave me about 3 years ago.

Edit 3: I have no Pi or Nvida Shield to compare.
