With the addition of built-in WiFi and a $30 price cut, the M1 is a solid replacement for the Slingbox 350. While it does still have a higher upfront cost than competing products, it can also stream content that no other device can -- namely, live sports and any other content you've already paid for through your cable subscription. If you're a big sports fan or a frequent traveler, this could be a worthwhile purchase.
