Is Nvidia Shield worth it?

It makes a lot more sense to upscale content in real time rather than spending countless hours and tons of storage space doing it the primitive way. Reviews of Nvidia Shield are almost universally positive. Does anyone here have experience using it?

The only drawback for me is that it has a maximum resolution of 3840 x 2160. Most of the upscaling I use TVAI for is to 8K resolution.

I have it (Nvidia Shield 2019 Pro). the Upscaling is OK (DLSS like) I guess. Honestly I couldn’t tell the difference between streaming my 1080p content on my 4K TV at it’s original resolution and streaming it by enabling the Nvidia Upscale AI.
