Shield probe, you are so lovely. You are a free instant 2k heal on a 45 second cooldown, you keep me casting, and you help me self heal faster. Whenever I'm about to take damage, I know you'll be there to help me get back on my feet and stay protected.

I have noticed it is a bit more then 2k, i would say 3.5k if i had to guess, but yea it is very helpful since they buffed it back in 1.2. Before that it didnt scale really at all and was worthless.

Yep, pretty good skill indeed, very handy when you expect incoming damage and you use it in advance.

Definitely more than 2k but less than sorc's bubble (about 3.8k in full WH).
I will try to only use it once in a WZ when I am being focused and die and will see how much exactly it absorbs.

Here's what I found the fomulas for shield probe.

The formula to find how much it absorbs (at level 50) is:
Amount Absorbed = (power + tech power) 0.5957 + 921.05

or you can look at your "bonus healing" on your character sheet:
Amount Absorbed = bonus healing 2.59 + 921.05

800 Tech Bonus Healing will give 2993 absorbs.
