As one of the best performing, easiest-to-use media extenders out there, the Slingbox PRO-HD takes over the Editors' Choice crown that had belonged to its predecessor, the Slingbox Pro. It's a snap to set up, and it works exactly as advertisedtwo rare...

Streams HD-quality video over a home network and near-HD-quality content over the Internet (provided sufficient bandwidth is available). Can finally pause and resume live TV. New Program Guide is a welcome addition. Well-executed software player....

Program Guide and Setup Assistant contain a few rough edges. Still no Wi-Fi, DVR capability, or HDMI input. Ties up the television the device is attached to.

The Slingbox PRO-HD is one of the best performing, easiest-to-use media extenders out there. It's a snap to set up, and it works exactly as advertisedtwo rare qualities in a broad-ranging category, which is full of complex, difficult-to-decipher products.

Watch your favorite HD channels on your notebook in any room in the house or away from home.

While the Pro-HD will work with both Macs and PCs, it can stream high-definition channels only to Windows machines; a company rep said that an updated version of the Mac player will come out later. For now, the Pro-HD down-converts HD channels for Mac...

Quick Review What is it? Slingbox Pro-HD place shifts your television content to where ever you have an Internet connection. What's Cool: Easy setup if you have the right connections available. Stylish device. Does what it says it does. What's Not: HD...

The Slingbox Pro-HD is a great device. The downsides are you cannot watch 1080P content, nor can you use HDMI for your HD components. However, 720P HD using the component cables gets around any weird HDCP issues and video quality is excellent as long...

Review: Slingbox PRO-HD

 

I've been a big follower of the Slingbox since it came out. Unfortunately, I haven't had the opportunity to play with one until recently. I'm kind of glad I waited this long. That's because the first Slingbox I got was the new Slingbox PRO-HD. The key...

Sling Media’s newest model, the Slingbox Pro-HD, is now slinging digital television signals to your PC, Mac or mobile devices in high-definition. It’s also ready for the coming DTV change over in February 2008 when all TV gets delivered in digital; the...

Sling Media's Slingbox PRO-HD is finally available in the UK, after being on sale in the US for over a year. Its key advantage over the original Slingbox Solo is HD support; where the original model was restricted to only streaming standard-definition,...

When it first came out, the Slingbox concept was ground-breaking. Five years later and we're less convinced. In a bid to offer specific solutions to specific types of customer, Sling Media has ended up offering less than the competition now does.

As with the original Slingbox Pro, most of this will be overkill for the majority of users who just want to stream their live TV or DVR to their PC or smart phone. But for home-cinema enthusiasts and hard-core gadget heads, the Slingbox Pro-HD may well...

Variety of devices compatible with it ; Easy-to-use software and set-up ; Controls almost all cable and satellite boxes and DVRs ; Good video quality via the Internet

No built-in wireless networking support ; Monopolises most AV sources during viewing ; Best video quality requires ample bandwidth and muscular PC

There's a lot to like about the Sling Media Slingbox Pro-HD. For moving your TV service from home to anywhere else, it's brilliant. We found ourselves using the mobile app at home when we either didn't want a TV on, or there wasn't a TV available. Out...

Like previous Slingbox devices, such as the Slingbox Solo and the Slingbox Pro, the Slingbox Pro HD works by streaming video from a cable TV box, digital video recorder, or other home video source through the Slingbox unit, and then displaying the...

We would consider getting a Slingbox Pro HD if we were confident of having access to reliable, high-bandwidth broadband in places where we expected to watch remotely - and if we didn't insist on flawless performance. Otherwise, the Slingbox Pro HD's...
