    I've had mine for quite a while and I love it. Even more so now that appian's recorder software (windows only) is working again allowing me to record streams for later.

    I've had my slingbox for a long time as well. It works well an does the job. Quality is pretty good, depending on your connection. There's about a 3 second delay between it showing up on the TV and it showing up on your Mac. I haven't had any problems with it, recommend it if you travel a lot or want to watch your TV on your Mac.

    Before I bought mine, I went to a Best Buy and they had a demo unit up and running. You might try that for a quality demo. The thing to remember is that the quality is dependent on the uload speed of your connection. Mine is 768Kbps and looks great.
