A good product that falls short of greatness.

How we score

The Engadget Score is a unique ranking of products based on extensive independent research and analysis by our expert editorial and research teams. The Global Score is arrived at only after curating hundreds, sometimes thousands of weighted data points (such as critic and user reviews).

Engadget Summary

If you want to watch your home TV from just about anywhere, the Vulkano Flow could be a good option. At under $100, it does most of what the Slingbox Solo does, for a lower price. The Solo currently sells for about $150, and its mobile apps run about $30 each, while Vulkano's are $13. While the Slingbox is a more mature, flexible, and easier-to-use product, if you're looking to save some cash and plan to place-shift your programming to a variety of devices, the Vulkano Flow could save you a fair amount of money.
