Good: Nice idea
Bad: Extremely difficult to set up
Comment: This is a great idea in principle, but a nightmare in reality. After spending hours attempting to set this up, I couldn't get this Slingbox to be viewable remotely. I found the instructions extremely poor and basically impossible unless you have good knowledge of networking. Not recommended for average computer users.
Good: Ease of set up and quality of wireless TV around the house
Bad: Styling is a little quirky and seems to run quite hot
Comment: Didn't really need this at all but the early reviews I read piqued my curiosity and made it sound like a true gadget fan's gadget. I still have trouble explaining to other people what it actually is and why I bought it but love it all same! Linked up perfectly to my Humax PVR and the remote that pops up on the PC screen is a good approximation of the real thing. Will be very useful when I'm away on business but haven't had the opportunity to test that yet. At the moment, just carrying my tablet PC around the house to watch TV anywhere is cool enough!
