Very Good Shield - Recommended
We use the "Blast Master" shields at our TaeKwonDo studio and they have held up very well to a lot of abuse. These are fairly wide and thick enough to absorb a lot of the force, which is good for the person holding the shield, and are firm enough to be very satisfying to hit.
The only thing that would make this shield better would be the addition of handles on the top and bottom sides to allow for better holder grip when used for different techniques, particularly hand\punching drills.
