Product Reviews
SLINGBOX 500 is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 596.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from No USB support So you use to support home use of USB and now you don't. Seems like a lack of support way to easily give to a user.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Awful I have had a sling box 500 for about 3 years now and can count on one hand the number of times I have been able to watch without problems. Constant lost connections (I have Xfinity wireless high speed internet), poor video quality that goes in and out, and now the remote will not work on my iPhone. The remote sometimes works on my laptop and sometimes on my iPad but both of those are crapshoots.Please, Please, Please do not buy one of these!!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My favorite Gadget I have had mine for 3 years. Nothing better. I use with my IPhone, Mac Air, etc. Simply the best and easy to set up!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Absolutely awesome! Bought this Slingbox with a lot of doubt. Wife and I travel a lot both in and outside the country and I missed watching my local news and Direct TV prerecorded TV shows. Without a hitch, Slingbox had me click on to my Direct TV DVR and watch whatever i wanted both live and prerecorded shows. I tried it out of state and also out of country. As long as you have an internet connection it will work. Absolutely awesome!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This an awesome device! I've had the Slingbox 500 for well over a year. Setup properly, this works wonderfully for watching your TV provider's content anywhere you choose.It has eliminated my need for a second satellite box since I can merely broadcast the content to my other TV via the Roku app.As far as mobile, just get the app (iPhone and iPad, in my case and iPhone and iPad apps are separate but once done, well, there are no further fees), at a one time cost ... no ads, just the content one desires.When one is using it over a local LAN to a device connected to the local LAN, no data is used outside one's own network.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Used to be perfect, now it's just ads. I have owned a slingbox since the beginning. It was the best because nobody had anything like it. It worked flawlessly over all devices and the picture was perfect. Now I would say the web player version gets one star. over half the screen is ads in spanish. Looks like I will have to go back to using the cable access. ;o(

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Upgrade is a real improvement (not) Last update on firefox is a disaster. Give me the option to defer updates, please. And do not change what works, bad experience since years.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Fried my cable box Connecting this up to my new Comcast Infinity X1 cable box and running through the setup steps resulted in the disabling of the HDMI output of my cable box. Luckily it had just been installed a week ago and installers were still in the building so they replaced my box for me. Returned this for a credit, not trying again. I had an old Slingbox ProHD wihch worked fine for a long time with old cable service, but it had died a while back so thought I'd try this one. So be careful out there...
