    I have one, have used it many times, quality depends on your internet connection here and there, but has always worked well for me.

    I have the first generation one and it has worked well for me. Video quality is better then I expected. They have a HD version now so I am wondering how well that works. I would buy one if i were you.

    Like Blue said it is only as good as your Internet connection. That being said, I have had it since it was first introduced. Best thing since SPAM & donuts.

    Don't forget you need a set box in the US. If someone else is using it at the same time you can't control it.

    Many providers have or will have a setbox w/ dvr and slingbox all in one.

    I don't have one but anytime I have seen one in use I am in awe.

    It's better than donuts and spam.

    Yeah, I have the Slingbox Classic and I love it. It's really great. Be careful with some of the newer ones, the Slingbox Solo (the bottom of the line) has had a bad history with blown out capacitors right as they have gone out of warranty. I would suggest a Squaretrade warranty; you can usually get them 30-40% off.
