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.
Summary: I was looking at Slingbox pro but the price is too stiff for what i intended for this functionality. Sony is a surprise to me as it performed better than i expect it to. Not to mention the price i paid for only $99.++ at the time it was put on sale. The reduced price did it for me.
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.
Summary: Set-up took weeks as I was not at the delivery address and the wonderful but stubborn people setting it up wouldn't read the directions. If you can hook up a vcr or dvd player to your tv and you read/follow the instruction book/set-up wizards, you should have it up and running in 20-30 minutes.
Summary: The product is much better than a slingbox. It is easy to setup as long as you follow the directions. Perfect for college students. quality is great. I would not purchase any other similar product. this product works great, is cheap, and easy to use
Summary: This device does the same as the Slingbox but not as expensive. The only issue I had was software does not work on 64bit vista and not as good as slingbox but does a very comparable job. Overall I'm pleased with it.
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).
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.
