The Bottom Line While its ability to accept multiple sources and optional HD is overkill for most users, the more-expensive Slingbox Pro makes sense for hardcore Slingers with gobs of video gear. An evolutionary upgrade of past Slingbox models, the Slingbox Solo remains an excellent way to stream your home TV programming to an increasingly wide variety of broadband-connected computers and smartphones. While you'll pay a premium for its extra features, the Slingbox 500 is an excellent way to watch your TV or DVR video content anywhere. The Slingbox Tuner lets you watch your home TV anywhere, but it's useful only for those who have a good basic cable lineup.
