I bought this because I live on my own and every penny I save is a major help. My cable bill was cut by about 80%. I had my parents add an extra cable box to their plan and now i only pay the box rental fee, plus a little extra toward their bill. I use it with my phone, tablet, desktop and laptop computers. All of which, barring the desktop, have simple tethering options to mirror the display to my HDTV. I rarely have a problem connecting, when I do, it is always a WiFi issue where the signal momentarily is disrupted, and the set-up could not have been easier. Also, If you plan to do as i have done and leave your Slingbox at somebody else's place, you do not have to connect it to a TV - mine is connected solely to the cable source and the internet. The Slingbox, regardless of which model, is simply one of the most useful devices I have ever owned and i can not recommend it enough to anyone who is interested.

I got this for Christmas. First snag was to get ethernet cable to the box because it is not wireless. Tip: Amazon has a flat ethernet cable for crazy cheap! Then I wanted to use with Roku (which is wireless but only costs $99). (While I'm whining about an awesome gift from a beautiful and thoughtful girlfriend, a Chromecast works great for $35 if you have the right TV and only want to watch what Google wants you to watch.) Second snag was that the Roku box does not really work with Slingbox, but only with the iPhone app. The iPhone app costs $15. (The Roku app for iOS is free.) Third snag. Read carefully. The iPhone app works with Roku. NOT iOS. NOT iPad. So I paid $15 for iPad app which did nothing except play Slingbox content on the iPad. Uninstall the Slingbox channel from Roku. Fourth snag. I had an older Slingbox Pro and paid some huge amount for the iPod app. (Maybe it was $15 but I think that is a lot of money for an app I used once per year.) Well that would not work with the new Slingbox or the Roku. But the clever iOS owner-reader would say what about Airplay? So I have to buy an AppleTV and test Airplay from the iPad app on the TV in order to watch my Slingbox on a TV in another location. It works on my laptop. (Laptop is Mac so I guess it will AirPlay to the AppleTV as well? Whew, something else to research.) So bottom line is that it seems to work in the test environment (e.g. same room with the Slingbox on the same wifi), and it works on the iPad and laptop with noticeable but not infuriatingly frequent pauses, but I have yet to get it to work on the big screen. That is annoying because it costs more than Roku, AppleTV, or Chromecast, and as an end-user, I don't see why it does not work easier and better. I sure don't know how they charge $15 for the iPhone app and another $15 for the iPad app and another $15 for the android app when everyone else give the app to encourage you to buy the gadget. The picture is ok, but I'm using a SD source. I tried HD with my old box, but the Internet never was up to the task, so I never even tried it. My old box had a cool upside down U that blinked when it was sending out the signal, the new box has a single light. Oh, when the warranty runs out, just toss the thing when it stops working, their tech support is pay-as-you-go. Even when it bricks after an update which is entirely their fault. If there was something better, I would have it (unless it is that $35,000 digital first-run movie box). So, meh, it works.

It's ok

By 

from Manalapan Township, NJ, United States

I just started it and so far it's ok. Video on the roku is not what I expected. I was hoping to be able to use it for more then one device at a time.

Very good picture quality

By 

from Ramstein, Germany

After two years 350 broke. Also after two years Solo broke. After warrenty period ends customer service sucks. Must go to forums which are of little help and it is hard to find info or pay a huge amount of money for live support on a per incident bases. If Sling Media would greatly improve customer service I would rate 5 stars and recommend to friends.

Angry user

By 

from Undisclosed

Like all other long time users, when my Pro-HD crashed on me I bought a 350. I am very disappointed to learn that I have to watch ads to use this. It defeats the ENTIRE purpose of the slingbox. I will be returning it now.

Great product!

I bought a refurbished Slingbox 500 to connect to my direct TV box. It is easy to set up and works well. This is a great product!

Slingbox ADs a BAD IDEA

By 

from Los Angeles, CA

I thought I would like this new Slingbox until the ADs started. This really stinks. I will surf around a bit and see if I can find a way to turn it off, but this is an annoying deal breaker.

Primary TV

By 

from Wisconsin

Have been using this for over a year, works awesome. I have used the iOS, Android, PC Chrome, OS X Chrome, Safari, and Fire TV streaming. really like the fact that the Fire TV is a stand alone app, just wish the guide would show up, iOS and Android have great mobile interfaces, and with the browser support, Chrome is the best. Safari has been getting such stupid ads lately which is why I can't give it a 5 star rating. Lately been having issues, only because both ISP's are having network difficulties.

Slingless

By 

from WV, United States

I've owned it about a year. I have 8mbs up and 1 mb. down. I can't even sling it from the living room for any amount of time. Buffers constantly. Very laggy control. Use on Ipad3 and Roku 3. Just doesn't perform. Frustrating. If it did what they say it does it would be a nice unit. And maybe it does if you have a very fast internet connection.

Home TV Anywhere

By 

from Undisclosed

Just picked up the 350 model to team up with my UVerse at home. Installation was very easy. Just make sure you have your computer logged into the right wifi in case you have several in your house like I do. Once I figured that out were up and running in no time! Picture looks great through my MacBook and the iPhone app. Should've purchased years ago!!
