First spotted in FCC pics back in August
, the Slingbox SOLO has finally hit the review circuit. Lacking the hardware-assisted HD streaming output of the just announced Slingbox PRO HD
, the SOLO brings the original Slingbox Pro's HD inputs and VGA-res output to a dongle
-less existence. The people at PC Magazine hooked up up the 'box and found plenty to admire in Sling's software and easy setup, pausing only to lament the short included ethernet cable and lack of WiFi. With its $180 MSRP, this Slingbox
is a good option when your HDTV is far away, at least until the PRO HD hits the streets.
