Score 8.0/10
Good points:
I'm only using the basic set up - aerial lead to Slingbox and broadband connection. The test will be when I try it out abroad! So far it has worked very well. It is small and unobtrusive.

Score 8.0/10
Good points:
Anywhere in the world we can turn on a laptop and get any programme that is on UK freeview.

We had the first version of this and it lasted for 3 years. Hoping this will last a lot longer.
Bad points:
Ugly box that sits by your broadband input point. Ugly freeview aerial and leads on show that can't be hidden. Absolutely bewildering to install - we had to get a pc specialist in to do it in the end, for this set up and the previous box we owned.
