Does what it says, and does it well

Stephanie Kippen "Skippen", Amazon
3 October 2013
  • Summary: Full disclosure- I did not buy my refurbished Slingbox Solo through Amazon. My concerns before buying the box: 1. Only broadcasts in HD when you're using a computer hooked up to the same network (usually, your house) as the Solo; otherwise broadcasts in SD. And who watches anything in SD these days?

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

Owen K., Newegg
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.

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.

Great during the 10 seconds before it disconnects

Gabriel Young, Amazon
25 January 2012
  • Summary: I've had the Slingbox SOLO for about two years now. It bought it so I could watch cable TV on the train to and from work on my iPhone (an additional $30 for the app). After several months, it started disconnecting after a few seconds every time.

Worst Support Ever Experienced! CHECK if your device is supported before buying.

Jester, Amazon
21 January 2012
  • Summary: This thing does what it's supposed to do the but the support SUCKS. Half of the new DVR's are NOT supported which is absolutely ridiculous for a product that is supposed to allow to stream TV. The website is the worst website I've ever come across.

Works great from South America, picture is not the greatest in full screen

TCB in a Flash, Amazon
8 December 2011
  • Summary: I purchased this to be able to watch NFL and college football in Argentina. It is attached to a Dish Network DVR in my parent's house in Colorado, and due to the layout of their house, I also purchased the Slinglink Turbo 1PORT Enet Connection Bridge (SL 150-100).
