– Front looks like cheap LCD picture frame. You know, that $20-50 variety. Glass has a bezel on edges which refracts the light and makes it look like a picture frame even more.

For the past few months, I’ve had the SlingPlayer Mobile iPhone app installed on my iPad. With the exception of “emergencies” (needing to record a show when I’m on the go, etc.), I never use the app. For me, the 15 frames per second and pixel-doubled image were unwatchable. By nature, I’m a videophile and demand only the best picture possible. Though it’s taken much longer than initially believed, Sling has delivered a native iPad app which works with the two newest Slingbox models; the Solo and Pro-HD.
For all intents and purposes, the app works as advertised. Regardless of Slingbox model, the new app streams video in 640×480, which is standard definition (VGA). A number of other hands-on articles and reviews claim the app streams in HD– this is not the case. If you’ve been using the standalone application on a Mac (a program which is no longer actively supported), you’ll be familiar with the resolution, as 640×480 is highest the application can stream.

I have the Zaggmate and I’m very happy with it. I can’t speak to the usb thing as I haven’t had to charge the battery. The case is not my primary case. I use the InCase Book Jacket close to 75% of the time and the Zaggmate the rest and which I chose depends entirely on how I anticipate using the iPad at the time I’m packing up. The Zaggmate does not let me use the iPad the way I tend to across the entire day when I am out and about which is why it is no good as a primary case. I do a lot of writing on the iPad, though, and some data entry here and there, and for that it’s fabulous. For life out in the wild, it goes back into the Book Jacket. The Zaggmate offers zero protection when you are using it as a keyboard/stand combination.
