Jay, Tunbridge Wells I'm a techy.

Score 1.0/10
Good points:
none, although it could probably hold your door open, as it's so large.
Bad points:
Total failure as a product and Simply Electronics are a total failure as a supplier. It has now been over 3 months and I cannot get a refund out of them, even though the product was DOA and has been sent back at their request. I have had confirmation that the unit is faulty and a promise of a refund, yet my emails go unanswered and my refund is non-existent. I would never use them again and the product does not work.

Anshu, Philadelphia tech geek computer programer

Score 10.0/10
Good points:
Came rather fast. Great at stream tv to mulple devices at home (pcs, macs, iphofnes, android phones) and allowing them to record it. Also give you the nice feature of being able to stream to one of these devices remotely...and of course being a DVR and letting you watch pause and record video. I like it better than the slingbox
Bad points:
Came with a european plug instead olf US and didn't have an internal hard drive that I thought it did. Also didnt have the greatest tracking

Score 5.0/10
Good points:
It placeshifts your video as advertized and it records in a way that can be downloaded directly to a mobile device.
Bad points:
The interface on this device is pitiful and works against itself in making it a good product. It wants to sell itself on a DVR capability, but you cannot record an entire series, it must be one at a time. The on screen guide which is different from the guide they give you on a mobile device is difficult to work through. I used my own SATA drive to set up but they sell their own, and I had to monkey around with it abit to get it to be compatible. Overall, it is not a user-friendly consumer friendly device to use.

MICHELE, firenze

Score 7.0/10
Good points:
l'idea è splendida a me non funziona con il 3g ma credo sia un problema di rete italiana, anche in wifi a volte va a scatti comunque se non ci si aspetta grande qualità è un buon prodotto. Probabilmente con il rafforzamento delle reti wi fi e 3g potrebbe migliorare molto.
