The SlingBox Solo gets everything right, from good looks to simple physical setup and simple software setup. It took only minutes to hook up and now I can watch my Sky+ box on my mobile phone wherever there's 3g or HSDPA coverage. Incredible technology that takes a simple idea and makes it into a user friendly product polished to a level of perfection that contends with Apple.
Even the box is pretty!
The only issue I could find with the SlingBox Solo is the fact it can only support one viewer at a time, this is for legal and technical reasons so is forgivable but still a shame. Also a more expensive model equipped with WIFI would be nice but Sling Media seem intent on explaining away WIFI as unsuitable and trying to sell customers their Sling Link solution.
Suffice to say, if you can't run a network cable to your TV then it's going to cost you an extra £60 to get it connected to your network. But if you can it's a fantastic product that really does deliver exactly what it says on the tin.
