The latest fruits of my labor: the sleek and incredibly sexy TiVo Wireless N adapter. It has the same design language as our original wireless G adapter, but several aesthetic enhancements to the design make it look far cooler.
For starters, the metal base is stunningly beautiful. Whereas the G adapter has a lighter colored brushed metal finish, the N adapter uses a black chrome finish giving it a much classier, sophisticated, and high-end look. It’s drop-dead gorgeous if I do say so myself!
With the G adapter, I was never quite happy with the logo treatment. The logo is printed on a label which is then stuck on – it’s basically a sticker which, perception-wise, just seems a bit cheap. The N adapter’s logo is monochrome silver and back (in and of itself cooler IMO), and the TiVo guy actually protrudes from the plastic, giving the logo depth. And not only is the face of the TiVo logo silver, but so are the sidewalls of the protruding logo.
Design details aside, the N adapter offers much better range and speed compared with our G adapter. And if you have a WPS capable router, then connecting the adapter to your router is as simple as pushing a button on your router and then pushing a button on the adapter.
Here’s some pics of our N adapter. It’s available now on tivo.com and various retailers.
