Does a good job

Diego, Amazon

  • Summary: I've had this product for many years now, and although I don't think anyone is likely to buy this today, I thought I'd post my review. I use it only to watch live TV on my computer. I have a large 30" monitor, so I can have the video in a corner while I work on something else, it's nice. I've always used it on my local network, never via the Internet. It's obsolete now, it only supports wireless-G, and its best image quality (640x240) is about the equivalent of 360p.

PSP owner doing research

Movieskinny "WayneG", Amazon
17 December 2009
  • Summary: I have been staring at a PS3 purchse now for a while. I've gone through all the progressions of PS1-PS2, PSP, and computers. I have looked at this product now for almost three years. Price always seemed a little too high. Now, I believe the PS3 has made this purchase moot. The PS3 is equipped with location free capability and remote play for my PSP, and all for just a little more than this LFBS!!

  • Summary: It came in great condition and never experienced buyer's remorse. Although setting it up at first was a little tricky, the sony support staff was very helpful and I am using it on a daily basis.

I Love This Thing!

T. Scott, Amazon
7 August 2009
  • Summary: Initially I was going to buy a Slingbox but then I heard about the LF-V30. What sold me on it was that it has built-in wireless...I don't have to have it physically connected to my router. Perfect! I actually bought this item on Ebay for $100 brand new. I got up this morning, looked at the instructions and had it setup within 1/2 hour. I can now watch my Directv satellite on my laptop and so far everything works great.

Streaming works--remote control does not

Jason "NOT A TECHIE!!", Amazon
13 June 2009
  • Summary: I use this device to stream tv to my laptop and psp. I was able to set it up without too much trouble. It's great to be able to stream to my psp and take it anywhere in the house--like in the bathroom while I get ready in the morning. That said, I have never been able to get the remote to work with my Dish Network. I have spent considerable time trying to figure this out.

Buy a Slingbox

E. Eckert, Amazon
4 May 2009
  • Summary: Unfortunately the SONY locationfree Base Station will only work if there is no other wifi network nearby. I live in a townhouse and many of my neighbors have local wireless networks. Although my wireless network has 5 bars and the highest number of bars a nearby neighbor's network has is three, I cannot get the base station to connect. This was confirmed by a SONY Locationfree techie this morning. He admitted that the device is basically useless where I live.

Very, Very cool. A must have!

M. Rockland, Amazon
8 April 2009
  • Summary: This product is similar to the "Sling Box", however, the Sony LocationFree Base is WiFi enabled (no Ethernet cable needed, unlike the Sling Box), so this is more flexible than the Sling Box, and a Sony product. The only issue I had, is that the setup instructions are VERY insufficient. There's pretty much no way you'll be able to set it up by yourself (and I'm pretty technically savvy),You'll definitely need to contact Sony customer service to get it up and running.
