Today’s Woot! deal is a refurbished Slingbox PRO-HD for only $169.99 + $5 S&H. This is the top-of-the-line Slingbox, capable of handling 1080i component video and streaming full HD to clients local or remote – provided the pipe is big enough, of course. I’ve streamed HD video from my PRO-HD in Worcester, MA as far away as Seattle, WA and Jupiter, FL, and it works great.
This is a pretty good deal as the MSRP is $298.00, and Amazon sells these new for $233.46. The lower-end Slingbox SOLO model has a $178.00 MSRP and sells new for $142.76, and while it can handle HD input it does not stream in HD. It also only officially supports one input, while the PRO-HD supports two sets of A/V input – one HD and one SD, as well as having an internal ATSC/Clear-QAM tuner.
