slingbox-filter: considering getting a slingbox to throw TV to my ipad/droidx/remote computers

have done a little research into it, and realize there are some issues with throwing your shows to droid x and ipad (mainly that there seem to be issues w/ getting the slingplayer app on your DX and that there is no native ipad app, only the iphone app which you have to double to use on ipad)
mainly would be using this to watch sports, would eventually have it attached w/ a DVR (and DirectTV) but for the time being would only be used via Comcast cable (no set-top box currently)
so i guess the main question can be boiled down to:
a) if you have it, what have your experiences been with it at all (slingbox - any flavor)
b) have you used slingbox w/ an ipad and/or any android phone
c) which flavor of slingbox (pro, solo, etc) is going to be the best one to get?
d) is there a better alternative than slingbox I do not yet know about?
if it helps i am currently on Verizon, and the iPad is wifi only
