Slingbox 350 & 500: Content Place-shifting Gets a 1080p Upgrade
October 12th, 2012
There are plenty of apps that allow you access to some of your content when you’re away from home, but what if you want to access all of it at the same time? The new Slingboxes might fit the bill, since they will allow you to do that.
The Slingbox 350 and 500 offer support for place-shifting video in up to 1080p quality, as well as integrated IR emitters for controlling set-top boxes from across the globe, and without ugly wires hanging from the box. The 350 model works over a wired Ethernet connection, while the 500 has built-in Wi-Fi, as well as HDMI input/output and SlingProjector technology to wirelessly share media from a smartphone, tablet or TV.
The Slingbox 350 sells for $180(USD) while the 500 sells for $300. Both of them look unique, instead of basic, ubiquitous black boxes.
