SlashGear Giveaway – Winners Announced!

SlashGear Giveaway – Winners Announced!

We had nearly 100 entries for our Slingbox Giveaway contest that started last Friday, and lots of great feedback as to what you'd like to see featured on the site in news and reviews.  Needless to say, you'll be seeing the results soon; we also hope to have another giveaway running in the near future.

But first, the winners!  Our computer-of-randomness randomly selected Edwin Tjhai as winner of the Slingbox AV and Kerry as winner of the Slingbox Tuner.  We'll be contacting Edwin and Kerry via email.

 

A big thank you to SlingMedia who kindly donated both prizes, and to everybody who took the time to make a suggestion.  Keep reading SlashGear for our review of the Slingbox, which is coming up soon!

SlashGear’s Slingbox AV Giveaway!

SlashGear’s Slingbox AV Giveaway!

SlashGear needs your help, people! We want to give you the finest news and reviews, and to do that we need to know what you enjoy reading about. Are you into cellphones, or does the latest in laptoppery float your boat? Is it GPS you hanker after, or would you rather read all about RC helicopters? And just so it's fair, we'll give someone the chance to win a fantastic Slingbox AV media streamer, courtesy of our beautiful friends at SlingMedia. Worth $180, the Slingbox AV will let you watch content from your cable, satellite or PVR via the internet on any number of compatible devices.

Update: SlingMedia have kindly offered a Slingbox Tuner as well, so we now have two prizes to give away.

Entering is super-simple. All you have to do is leave a comment to this post, making a suggestion of what you'd like to see SlashGear review. You can make as many suggestions as you like, but you'll only get one entry. Closing date is Midnight EST on Wednesday 28th November, at which point one commenter will be picked at random to win the Slingbox AV and one to win the Slingbox Tuner. Since we'll be contacting the lucky winner via email, please check to make sure you've typed it correctly; if we can't get in touch with you then we'll give the prize to some stray cats to cheer them up. Sadly this is open to US residents only, as the Slingboxes we have are the US models.

SlingMedia will ship the Slingbox AV and Slingbox Tuner directly to the winners of this giveaway.

Good luck!

SlingBox Pro Reviews – HD Supported With External Dongle

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.

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...
