Does a good job

Diego, Amazon
31 August 2014
  • 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.

Slick device, complicated setup, Mac users beware

TourniquetRules, Amazon
27 March 2011
  • Summary: Device does what it promised. Sony makes it much of it straightforward. For reasons that are unclear I had difficulty making the component inputs take a signal and pass it on. I almost think that you need to power cycle the device anytime you make changes, even hardware ones. Despite recommendations of 300kbps for upload speed, the best picture comes from 4mbps which I easily got over a wired and wireless connection to my Time Capsule (not Base Station).

Works great on PSP and Mac

D. Bowman "Tech Dork", Amazon
27 March 2011
  • Summary: Like one of the other reviewers, I too had to get help from the Sony folks, but they were great. It is quiet complicated to get it up and running, especially since I was using a Mac, not a PC. You have to buy the Mac software from [...] as a download. PSP - The picture is great. There is a slight delay when you use the remote but that is expected since you are controlling it over the internet. I love being able to get Laker games in any of the cities I travel to.

Great Deal for the Money!!

Nick, Amazon
27 March 2011
  • Summary: I was looking at the Slingbox products, but didn't want to pay that much. This device is great because it has wireless capability built in! No extra adapters needed, unlike Slingbox products. It even has a switch on the back to set to client mode so you can use with your current wireless router. The wireless works better than expected. The initial setup was a little challenging, only because of the many features of the product.

Great product.

NeoGeo24Bit, Amazon
27 March 2011
  • Summary: I purchased and have been playing with the Sony LF-V30 Location Free Base Station for several days. Overall I am very satisfied. Setting it up, however. I had a few issues. 1. I didn't realize you had to place the IR Blaster Wire over your DirecTV box (or whatever your video source is). I put the wire over the Base Station instead and was utterly confused as to why none of the on-screen remotes worked.

Great to watch movies anywhere on PSP

Dsinned, Amazon
27 March 2011
  • Summary: Four stars only because there are insufficient inputs for a wider variety of source devices. However, the LocationFree assumes you are hooking up from a Cable TV STB, DVR, TiVo or VCR or DVD player. I hooked up my LF to the component A/V output from a 400 disc, carrousel (or Jukebox) style DVD player and enabled the LocationFree player built-in to my PSP Slim.

Pleased -- And Surprised!

K. O'Shea, Amazon
27 March 2011
  • Summary: I originally researched the SlingBox and truth be told, I probably would have spent the extra money for it had going wireless with it not been so expensive. After digging a bit, I found the Sony LocationFree Base Station. As I researched, I found out that the Playstation Portable (PSP) has a built-in LocationFreeTV viewer... and that ultimately was the clincher. I could not be more pleased at how easy it was to get the box set up and working!
