The Slingbox Solo is a bold little media-streaming device: its trapezoid design is refreshingly distinctive.

It looks less like electronic gadgetry and more like the sort of thing you’d be proud to show off to your mates – especially as it supports high definition (HD).

If you want to use the Slingbox Solo remotely to gawp at your home video or photo collection or log in so you can view recorded TV content from another dimension, you’ll need a decent uplink speed.

The Slingbox Solo can be attached to DVD and digital video recorders as well as HD boxes of any flavour.
