  • Conclusion: The Slingbox PRO-HD is one of the best performing, easiest-to-use media extenders out there. It's a snap to set up, and it works exactly as advertised—two rare qualities in a broad-ranging category, which is full of complex, difficult-to-decipher products.
  • Pros: Streams HD-quality video over a home network and near-HD-quality content over the Internet (provided sufficient bandwidth is available). Can finally pause and resume live TV. New Program Guide is a welcome addition. Well-executed software player. Supports PCs and Macs.
  • Cons: Program Guide and Setup Assistant contain a few rough edges. Still no Wi-Fi, DVR capability, or HDMI input. Ties up the television the device is attached to.
