Love it!!

by Chuck on 10/9/2013

What a great idea. I like this product so much that I bought 3 of them. I use them with my TiVos, and am able to bring my home DVRs with me to any hotel when I travel. This is great for getting programming from around the world to anywhere provided you have internet access and ability to leave a slingbox in each place. The high def picture is great. When the network speed goes under 200kb/s, you lose video signal. The stream can take up to 8Mb/s if you are local to the boxes and is razor sharp. Great product!! Read More

“The picture quality on the Slingbox 500 is phenomenal and like the 350, viewable in gorgeous 1080p…the Slingbox is a terrific way to remotely tune-in to what’s on live TV, what’s on the DVR or what’s offered via OnDemand.”
– Christina Warren, Mashable [Click here for full review]

“A Slingbox is still the best way to watch [my TiVo] when I’m not at home–or even when I just happen to be in another room.”
