Customer Review

on 9 January 2014
I bought this to replace a dead Slingbox Pro (the long red one!) as after 5 years of daily use it finally gave up on me. As I streamed my Sky signal to upstairs bedroom with the addition of a sling catcher, I assumed buying Sling's latest box would be a simple plug in and replace affair. Sadly, what I hadnt realised, is Sling decided at some point to change the internal workings so much on their new 350 and 500 boxes, that they no longer worked with Slingcatchers. Sling discontinued the excellent Slingcatcher for no apparent reason a couple of years back - but why remove the ability altogether to stream to it? It makes no sense as the 350 spec wise is not much greater than previous models. And yet again Sling insist on designing a box that looks weird and out of place with the rest of your electronic equipment. I ended up returning it (and as a side note this was the first time i returned something to amazon, and it was very quick and easy) and purchasing an older model, the Slingbox Pro-HD. Which isnt HD as many people know it in the sense it uses HDMI or DVI connections, but uses Component (the red grenn blue RCA jack) conncetions instead. Which meant I needed to buy HDMI splitters, HDMI to component converters etc to get the most out of streaming the image from Sky to the slingcatcher. But I must say the picture quality of the older Slingbox Pro-HD on the slingcatcher is really good. But the 350 is quite basic SD quality.
