G, London

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
Easy to set up and for most people's needs is more than good enough. No need to go for the HD version if the Internet connection you'll be viewing from is not up to it.
Bad points:
Cost of the iPad and iPhone apps. Although they are very good and well thought out.

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
Very straightforward to use - can access from my PC/laptop anywhere (subject to bandwidth). Generally very good value and easy to setup and means I can
Bad points:
Extra costs for both iPad and iPhone apps to access on these devices. Would have thought that the purchase of one app would have given access to the other.
Need to be mindful that when using remotely it actually changes the channel on your cable / sat box so don't use it on the main or only box in the house unless there is no-one watching at home or they are watching the same channel.

Stephen, Leamington Spa

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
The Slingbox is easy, reliable and performs well.
Bad points:
The only drawback was that I was not able to use the remote for my rather obscure French decoder box. However, I was able to find a file on the Internet and upload that to the Slingbox, all now works perfectly.

tony, Cleckheaton 50+ electronics nut!

Score 8.0/10
Good points:
Used this every day when in USA when it was linked to my Sky box- brilliant!
Bad points:
Quality depends on upload speed of the Internet at home. Really need to run on fibre rather than normal broadband. Will upgrade before my next trip.
