Roamio Pro

Who makes it: TiVo

What it costs: $600

Why we like it: The Roamio Pro may just be the complete TV set-top box. Sure, it's a six-tuner DVR with a whopping 450 hours of high-definition storage capacity. But it also streams online video services such as Netflix and Hulu Plus, just like a Roku or Apple TV. And it lets you watch your cable channels and recorded programs remotely over the Internet on an iPad or iPhone, just like a Slingbox. Your cable company won't go out of its way to help you use it, but it's worth the effort anyway.
