This was to replace a much-loved Sling Pro-HD that worked well for several years.
One caveat: Using the HDMI input on this is slightly unpredictable. My cable box and AV system didn't like it. I ended up using the component input (which all needed cables were right at hand) and I am quite happy with the result.
Setup was easy and took about 10 minutes. The box is a weird shape (I suppose to keep you from putting something on top of it that would cause heat problems) but it is small enough that it can be tucked on the back of a shelf.
This box works with the purchased android and IOS apps I had left over from my old box just fine. It is not completely compatible with some of the older desktop apps (like the Windows version) so you must use the web-based app, which works, but isn't quite as fully-featured as the standalone apps were. (keyboard shortcuts don't work, doesn't have the spiffy "rewind" buffer).
Very happy with the seller and the delivered product, though. No surprises.
I would highly recommend the slingbox. It has been a great product. I just cant give it 5 stars because of the few issues that we have had with it.
