SlingBox Pro Reviews – HD Supported With External Dongle

SlingBox Pro was released last month and Ryan from Engadget is lucky enough to have it for review. The Pro SlingBox comes with HD support, but don’t jump over the moon yet, it doesn’t use HDMI and you will need a dongle that will cost you $50, which means you will need to throw out around $300 to get your SlingBox Pro to work in HD. While the dongle have a HDMI connector, it will NOT accept HDMI input. I agree with Ryan, I think it’s silly and might mislead consumers.

Sling Media will be launching three new models tomorrow, the Slingbox Pro, Slingbox AV, and Slingbox Tuner. The Pro is the higher end model that has an optional HD input adapter. Widescreen (16:9) support, high quality programmable video compression and full control of up to four A/V sources. The AV model gives you control over your digital cable, satellite or DVR set-top box. The Tuner is for standard basic cable that doesn’t require access to a set-top box, DVR or other AV devices. The Pro is priced at $250 and the AV and Tuner are priced at $180.

SlingBox Price Cut to $149.99

SlingBox Price Cut to $149.99

Hot on the heels of our story this morning about the HAVA Video Streamer set top box, it appears that Best Buy has begun selling the Sling Media SlingBox for $149.99 starting today. The device normally retails for $199.99, and while this doesn't appear to be a Sling Media-initiated drop, why would Best Buy want rid of these devices so badly? Is it possible that we could be seeing a new SlingBox debuting soon? Or is it just a sale that Best Buy felt was a good idea for this week? Only time will tell...
