"Does what it's supposed to do with ease!"5.0 starson by lindseybp
Pros: Super easy setup, multiple input options.
Cons: Need a good upload speed on your broadband to get best quality.
Summary: I'm not sure why the other guy gave it a 2. It's not advertised that you can record things off your stream and it wasn't designed for that anyway so I believe that's an unfair rating.
I got this the day it came out along with the Slingmedia network outlet adapters. Setup was incredibly simple. I installed the software on my pc and it started working immediately after hooking it up to my DVR. Downloaded the software on my laptop and again it was simple as can be.
If you are watching the slingbox on a pc connected to your network it's always super smooth and great resolution. I do not have a tv in my office so I always watch my slingbox on the computer while working or surfing the net.
My wife travels a lot with work and we love using the Slingbox to watch a show at the same time. If she is out in Seattle and I'm in Ohio we can still watch our shows together. Another nice feature with the pro is that I can also hook up a DVD player or another device that can be controlled via the slingbox as well. One note: just make sure you have solid upload speeds on your high speed internet connection. It makes a difference when you are "slinging" from a remote location.
Overall this is an excellent product and does what it was designed to do. No complaints here.
