Exclamation Hava vs. Slingbox

Please Login to Remove!

Does anyone know about Hava versus Slingbox for the 8320? I'm thinking about buying one of them. Which one would work better. I would like to get one where me and my son could watch one with both of our 8300 and 8320 from what little i've seen you can program up to five different phones on the Hava, does anyone know how many you program on the slingbox? Thanks in advance

I have never heard of Hava but I do use Slingbox. Right now I just have the beta version on my BlackBerry and it's not the greatest on EDGE speeds. I have a full version on my WM Sprint phone and it works great with that. So if your on a 3G connection I think it works great and you can only watch it on 1 device at a time. You can install it on multiple devices if you buy a license for each one. I believe they are still in the beta stages of the software for the BlackBerries.

I was looking into them both as well, check out the reviews on Amazon. The major differences that I saw were that slingbox had the slicker easier to use interface, slight edge in quality to HAVA and the biggie was that everything needed was part of HAVA while slingbox it was an added cost. Extra $20 or 30 for the mobile device driver etc. Haven't actually bought one so only passing on what I've read in reviews.
