Confirmed purchaser Bargain hunter

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
Does what it says on the tin with a few additonal extras I wasn't aware of. Allows you to send content from a laptop to the slingcatcher not just video but audio as well using the Sling Projector software (which I believe is free.
Bad points:
I am using this with a TV bed, and as such the receiver unit sits in the slot under the bed. This makes changing channels etc difficult. I wish the remote control wasn't Bluetooth instead of IR. Still working out how to make it connect to my NAS, but will hopefully get this sorted out soon.

Chas, Walsall

Score 3.0/10
Good points:
The idea was good, thats why I bought one, perhaps the one I purchased was "Duff", or maybe my "3 Toshiba p20 laptops" weren't good enough, who knows?. It looks good sitting there in the cardboard box, would jump at the chance of getting my money back.
Bad points:
Not "HD" which I knew before I purchased, very little instructions in setup manual, unreliable, too fiddley, poor quality video streaming, very dissapointed. Maybe someone younger would have opperated it more successfully, who knows?.
