SlingLink TURBO brings powerline to Slingbox formula

updated 08:30 am EDT, Mon June 18, 2007

SlingLink TURBO

California's Sling Media today took the wraps off the SlingLink TURBO, a solution for the company's own Slingboxes and other living room network devices. The adapter set can bring the Slingbox, consoles, and PVRs on to a powerline network when Ethernet cables are impractical or Wi-Fi is too complex; plugging the pair of included devices at each end puts any Ethernet-based device on an 85Mbps connection to a normal wired modem or router. The SlingLink also fits the HomePlug standard and can mix and match with other powerline network gear, the company adds.

Two versions are available depending on demand: the TURBO 1 Port is built strictly for those who only need to bring one device on to the network and should be available in the next few weeks at $100 for two sets. A TURBO 4 Port device is shipping now for $150 and provides extra connections for those with completely networked media centers.
