From the Manufacturer
Want to connect your Slingbox but your TV is in a different room than your router? Need a network connection for your computer or game console in an area where you have no wireless coverage? Want an easy-to-set-up networking solution that provides a fast connection and the best conditions for smooth video? You need SlingLink TURBO.
Connectivity Anywhere In The Home
Your Slingbox may be located in an area that is not ideal for a wireless connection. Stereo equipment, a stereo rack or lots of wires can cause a weak or fading Wi-Fi signal. SlingLink TURBO eliminates these problems and assures a high quality connection.
Best Connection and Signal Quality
By providing a direct hard-wired connection from the internet to your Slingbox or computer, you get the best possible video and the most reliable connection for your computer.
Connect All Your Devices to the Internet
For network connections to multiple devices, such as a satellite receiver, game console, or computer, try SlingLink TURBO 4-Port. Expand your network and add up to 16 SlingLink devices (up to 64 networked devices) throughout your home.
How it Works
The SlingLink TURBO 1-Port and 4-Port are plug-and-play devices. Easily connect your Slingbox to your router -- even if they're located in separate rooms.
Just plug one SlingLink TURBO into an in-wall electrical outlet near your router. Plug the other SlingLink TURBO into an in-wall electrical outlet near your Slingbox or any other device that needs to be connected to the internet.
Top Customer Reviews
I've used SlingBox and SlingLink Turbo in two different configurations:
1. SlingBox connected directly to my router; SlingLink supporting other wired + wireless computers elsewhere in the house via a wireless router.
2. SlingLink connected the Internet and SlingLink broadcasting to SlingLink supporting my SlingBox and XBOX 360 as "slave" devices.
The first configuration is better (obviously) because SlingBox can "broadcast" up to a full 2.5Mbps over a LAN connection. The second configuration is better for everyday use since I get maximum Internet bandwidth on computers.
1. Internet speed test dropped from 18-19Mbps down / 2.5Mbps up (Comcast w/ SpeedBoost) to 2100Mbps down / 800Kbps up.
2. SlingBox over SlingLink drops to 1.2Mbps (video quality is a bit choppy vs. perfectly smooth otherwise). I've had it spike to 1.6Mbps over the LAN.
3. Additionally SlingBox over the open Internet (original intended use) maxes out at 600kbps, which is a hair below what it was without SlingLink in the middle.
4. The only real "issue" with SlingLink is probably due to home wiring (i.e. on a semi-related note I had to re-wire every cable jack and replace the primary splitter that my electrical contractor originally installed because the cheap original hardware was so bad that ).
5. Newer SlingBoxes (AV/PRO/SOLO) may be more tolerant of "spotty" Ethernet connections, considering they have newer H.264 compression chips.
All in all I'm happy. Wireline Ethernet isn't perfect and would probably work a lot better in a condominium or smaller house. A larger house would/could justify multiple cable modems.
I am using the Slingbox with my laptop and cell phone and both have great pictures coming across. I am only using one port on the SlingLink now but can see needing the others for future components near the TV. (Santa - PS3)
Would absolutely recommend.
I've had this Sling Media Turbo kit for about 2-3 years now with the single port in the bedroom co-located with the router and the 4 port doing business at the other end of the house in the living room.
When I started, I might of had a Sling Box and a pc connected and found it quite acceptable.
However, today everything is internet connected. I have the 4 port behind the LCD TV chained together with an 8 port gig switch with 11, yes 11 (ELEVEN!) internet devices connected.
HP Multimedia PC
Sony Bravia TV (for firmware updates)
Sony Bravia Internet Link (Serving up Youtube, Amazon video and about 20 other Internet items)
Sony Blueray Disc player
Dishnetwork HD DVR
Standalone DVD Burner
Netflix Roku box
XBOX 360 in the family room (that is what the second Slinglink will take care of - getting rid of 50 ft of cable running around thru the house)
Skype desk phone
And something I cannot remember at this moment (Oh, yea! the original Slingbox Turbo!). It is cable madness even with decent cable management behind the Sony.
Performance? Out freakin' standing - I cannot recall when bandwidth was ever an issue. Looking forward to just plugging in the 4 port, adding the XBOX, PS2 and the Wii and it will JUST WORK.
Oh, did I mention the OTHER 9 wireless devices sharing the same bandwidth? Gotta love technology and gotta love this device.
Or I just need to move the deep reaches of the Tennessee mountains and leave all this tech behind....
