There's a lot to like about this in spite of a few flaws.

How we score

The Engadget Score is a unique ranking of products based on extensive independent research and analysis by our expert editorial and research teams. The Global Score is arrived at only after curating hundreds, sometimes thousands of weighted data points (such as critic and user reviews).

Engadget Summary

The @TVPlus is Belkin's take on a placeshifting device, a category long dominated by the Slingbox. And it offers some good features, including the ability to turn your tablet or smartphone into a DVR, so you can record programming for offline viewing. However, it can't stream in HD, and it's priced on par with the new Slingbox 350, which can. This sets up something of a feature trade-off: if you'd like a placeshifter that also includes offline viewing capabilities, the @TVPlus could be for you. If you value the ability to stream your remote programming in HD, the Slingbox 350 is a better option.
