Slingbox: Worst Customer Service, Faulty power adapters

john gadgets review, Amazon
10 December 2013
  • Summary: Warning: Slingbox is the worst product you'll every buy for remote TV watching. Customer service is a joke, they will try to charge $30 just for taking the call regardless of the outcome.

Best EVER!!

John W., Newegg
23 September 2013
  • Pros: Without a doubt, the BEST paperweight I've ever owned! Take it to the bank. If not for this product, I would have never discovered better internet bandwidth, (which doesn't help SLBX PRO-HD).
  • Cons: I can't think of any, unless you don't mind spending $200 plus on something that works about 7% of the time. If you can get past that, you've hit the grail!

The best hardware - with the WORST support ever.

Roger W. Amidon, Amazon
3 July 2013
  • Summary: I bought the original Slingbox when it first came out. Really nice. However, when the SlingBox Pro-HD SB300 came out, I bought two of them! They were great units. Worked really well, supported 3 different input devices, and really well done application software.

How to fix Slingbox PRO HD on which the network light is constantly flashing

Phil JJ, Amazon
11 November 2012
  • Summary: I had a lot of problems getting my Slingbox PRO HD to work and there are a lot of comments from other customers having had similar problems. Slingmedia's support is rubbish. I spent nearly 2 hours waiting for an internet chat with them and got disconnected very quickly twice.

No HDMI, and its $250. Just get the Pro or wait for the next model thank you

Paul, Amazon
9 October 2012
  • Summary: My neighbor has the Slingbox Pro, I got the Slingbox Pro HD. Let's do cons first. Cons: However I do feel for $250, that there "SHOULD" be a HDMI port, their is in fact no HDMI port, none. I ended up buying the extended warranty for it, as well.

MGOBLUE, Amazon
7 October 2012
  • Summary: I was very pleased when I hooked up my SlingBox Pro to watch on my tablet when out of town. It worked ok then stopped working after 3 months. Returned it to point of purchase for a new Pro. Well, 5 months into this one it too is dead.

good when it works

Joseph C., Newegg
31 August 2012
  • Summary: Capacitors looked OK. The common-mode choke (FB13) also looked OK, but when I plugged the power, I saw slight smoke rise from the component. I then de-soldered/removed the failed choke and bridged the connections for both legs by soldering on two small pieces of wire. Now it works great!
  • Pros: Convenient. Allows me to watch TV on mobile devices and PC/laptop.
  • Cons: Mine died after 3 months. No power. Unplugged and plug back in, power led and other lights come on for 5-10 seconds and then go out.

Make your home more like home!

Tech Geek Reviews, Amazon
9 August 2012
  • Summary: I have been using the SlingBox ProHD now for over a year, and I couldn't be happier with what it does. Since the quality of the quality of the output depends heavily on connection speeds, it is important to describe my setup.
