  • Summary: This has been a money pit for me. When I first bought it, I set it up...and it seemed to work just fine. BUT every time I traveled (which is a lot) I couldn't connect to it...and had no way of fixing it as I was out of the State/Country.

After the year warranty is up, low and behold a update comes along.Then your sling box wont work because of it ,and when you call tech help you have to...

When it worked it was great

Skaycee_TX, Amazon
18 August 2013
  • Summary: I have owned 5 different models of slingboxes and the sling catcher over the last 4 years. I really wanted to watch European Champions league soccer badly I kept going back. They all worked fine for a while and all eventually permanently failed within 12 months - in the same way - failure to power...

Some issues

Rex RFN, Amazon
23 August 2012
  • Summary: I had the old slingbox and it's still working okay. I wanted to upgrade to newer one and chose the SOLO in May 2012. Easy to setup and configure, it was working great. Then I started noticing that it would drop off and I would have to re-connect.

Mobile app is a ripoff

Bill S, Amazon
27 July 2012
  • Summary: I purchased a Slingbox SOLO mostly to view on my iPad and iPhone. After reading all the info on the Sling website and watching the videos regarding installation of the mobile apps, I purchased the iPad app ($30) with the understanding that I could install it on five iOS devices as long as they are...

Smoking Slingbox - my second one that broke

Amazon Customer, Amazon
11 June 2012
  • Summary: Alright, after doing some research I have come to the conclusion that my second Slingbox that breaking within one year was not a coincidence. This time there was a lot of smoke actually coming from the unit and it smelled really bad. It wasn't even streaming when it happened too.

Slingbox

24 May 2012
  • Summary: When viewing the units in the sling directory, I wish sling would put a message like "in use" under each box. That would be a great feature.
  • Pros: I have 4 of these and so far so good. All 4 operate in the same slingbox directory.
  • Cons: -

You Will Regret Buying This Junk

Nancy W., Newegg
16 April 2012
  • Summary: Slingbox Media deserves nothing less than class action lawsuits and bankruptcy.
  • Pros: Before it self destructs, AND IT WILL, it works okay
  • Cons: This device WILL fail. Count on it. Search the internet. See for yourself. Slingbox Media culls their forums of any posts regarding the garbage that they sell. After 30 days they charge $30 to even talk to you for support. The one year warranty is a LIE. Bad capacitors, updates that brick the uni...

Sling Media is an awful company

Adam Van Pelt, Amazon
1 February 2012
  • Summary: Update (October 2012): If customer service is of any value to you whatsoever, look elsewhere for another TV placeshifting product. I don't know that I can adequately put into words my dissatisfaction with this company, but I'll try.
