    Slingbox 500 is rated 4.662731871838111 out of 5 by 593.
    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Easy to use I liked what this device did. I did return it as I was not able to watch from my device (tablet/smartphone/laptop) without it changing the channel on the tv. However, if that's not an issue for you (multiple cable boxes at home or you live alone) then this is a perfect device. I saw reviews that mentioned the video playback wasn't great. The thing to remember is your playback on the wireless network is only as good as the network you're using. On the Verizon network I had no issues with delay or sudden pauses).

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Slingbox 500 - Love it I've had a Slingbox 500 for the past few weeks and love it. I upgraded from a PRO-HD and really notice that the quality is improved on this new one. Setup was pretty easy, did it all on the TV. Much easier than the PRO-HD to set up. I've used it so far to watch a lot of March Madness on my Android phone & tablet and it seems to work really well on LTE with no lag or buffering

    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...

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Marathon It's one obstacle after another setting this thing up... First needing to reset password, then wifi issues, then it wouldn't play HDMI videos (component only), then connection not available. 300 dollar product is great once it actually begins working and monthly payment that's great once it actually works.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Game Changer I am a huge soccer fan, When Champions League is on you want to see all the games. Slingbox makes this possible. I have one game on my TV, one on my Phone, and can have on on the Ipad as well. MY job takes me out of town weekly and having a slingbox with me allows me to watch all my stuff and take full advantage of my cable anywhere!
