4 out of 5 eggs Product performs as described 06/24/2010

This review is from: Sling Media SL150-100 SlingLink TURBO 1 PORT

Pros:

This product will work as described... If you are having trouble acheiving advertised speeds, you should contact an electrician as you may have radio interference from improper grounding (which can spell trouble for other electronic appliances in your house). Also, as another user stated, you should plug directly into the outlet and not a surge protector, on either end of the link. (sling box to sling turbo).

Cons:

I've always hated the idea of sending data over power as it does require troubleshooting when transmission issues occur. These issues are easily troubleshot by a professional electrician, but that can come with a hefty price.

Other Thoughts:

I know the product is not to blame for improper wiring in one's household or business, but I can see why many have displayed frustration as most houses wiring is not grounded properly. Remember, when you ground a wire in the path of radio interference, you've just created a giant antenna.
