Ratings & Reviews+

Slingbox 500 Media Streamer with HDMI & Wi-Fi is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 593.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from If you have a 2nd home, a Sling is a must-have. I own a condo where we spend considerable time throughout the year. Since it is not a primary home, I brought high-speed internet in through the local cable provider, but did not purchase a package that included cable TV. This was intentional, as I needed reliable data access for work (and all of the kids tablets, phones, etc), and for the minimal amount of time that we actually watch TV while we are there, streaming media, Netflix, YouTube, etc, would fill that need since I purchased a smart-TV. Or so I thought. I found that I miss most of the sporting events for my home team(s), and buying the local cable didn't get me what I needed anyway. As with most condo associations, you can't install a dish, so you are left with a mixed-bag of solutions/subscriptions that kind-of fill the need. I also tried a high-end Digital antenna since I have the top-floor condo. I tried it at our primary home and it worked exceptionally well, so I had high hopes for at least some broadcast channels in the condo. I went into the attic and installed the antenna as high as possible, but still could not get a signal because of the location of our condo complex. I thought I was out of options until a friend mentioned that he 'slings' TV to his cabin in upper Minnesota, and that brought me to Sling. I must have watched the video on your site about 10 times trying to figure out what I was missing. It couldn't be THAT simple, but it was. You put a Sling box between your home cable box and your TV, you follow the prompts that appear on your TV, and in minutes you are watching TV from anywhere. One of the hidden gems that you didn't mention on your site is that your home experience does not change at all. The Sling box just inserts itself between the TV and your cable box, but neither device actually sees it there. I bought the Sling 500, which does give me the ability to make my home TV smarter when I choose to, but the cable box will never know about it, which is the real magic here. We still use the same remote from our cable company and do everything the same way. I will say that I have seen some of the negative reviews about a choppy video and/or sound being out of sync with video, but since I'm on high-speed at both ends of the equation I have not experienced this at all. I do travel for work, and have seen both of these problems when I'm on the shared network at a hotel or convention, but Sling can only do so much with that physics problem. :) I give my Sling500 5 stars because it has solved the exact problem that I had; Lots of great channels at home, lot's of internet speed at a 2nd location, but no access to the channels that really mattered to us no matter which package we bought from the local provider. Problem solved with no additional subscriptions or inconvenience. Thanks Sling!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from unreliable luxury aint a luxury Such a shame. Great idea. When it works it is gold, but too often there are tech glitches. I would say over the last year 2 out of 3 times I have tried to use it there have been serious glitches including no sound,random blackouts, freezes, and a glitchy programming leading to it thinking no one is watching after thirty seconds. all of this makes this a very frustrating product which i cant recommend.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from EXCELLENT BUT.... Almost easy to install, I've seen worst than that. I'm in Rome and getting all my home's channels. Reception quality 100%. BUT...IF YOU OWN A NEW 64 BITS PC IT WILL NOT WORK. My wife Samsung tablet works great. When on vacation I use an Acer Aspire One and it works great too. Hope this will help others.

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 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...
