I currently have over 6,000 and a regen of 203 or something like that.
All new sheilds I come accross now seem to be around 1,800 and only 97 regen ?
I am pretty sure in the rep section the other day I was looking at the Assimilated Borg sheilds and was going to make them my next target. They had about 8,000 and a regen of over 300, but now they are 1,900 and only 97 regen !
the only way currently to see if a shield is better then yours is to put your current on your shuttle see what it has then look back at the other shield if your looking at regen and cap its a simple numbers bigger or smaller but by how much on your main ship is unknown till you put the shield your looking at on it buy it choose need ect.
No, the different stats are not due to bugs. It's due to the pop-up information being updated in near real time according to skill levels, bufs and debbuffs in your character. Teh game has different modes of operation. Space (mission) map, Ground (mission) map, Sector Space maps, and Social Ground/Space maps. While on those various maps, certain skills, abilities and equipment are partially or entirely disabled. In Sector Space virtually every skills, abilities and equipment are disabled. So equipment stats won't be entirely accurate. To see space or ground equipment properly, you need to view the pop-up info or /info on a mission map of the appropriate type (Ground for Ground gear and Space for Space gear).
And even then they will appear different to different people. Ships have modifiers on them that affect certain space gear like Escorts having a higher engine modifiers and Science ships having higher shield modifiers. And something that's not readily know is that ships have a modifier that affects weapon damage. The modifier is increases as the Tier of the ship increases.
