1 out of 5 eggsDoes not work properly

Pros: None

Cons: Did not bring signal that was present on outside of house to the inside of house. I even tried placing antenna on roof and in attic. Was able to get two additional bars inside but only when I held my phone less than 6 inches from the antenna on receiver.

4 out of 5 eggsWorks as advertised

Pros: I have poor service outdoors (about one bar) this booster increased the signal enough for good service (1 to 3 bars) indoors for about a twenty foot radius from the transmitter.

Cons: Had to mount the antenna outdoors at the peak of my roof.

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Work great went from one bar to full bars on T-Mobile cell.

Cons: None so far.

Other Thoughts: Make sure to follow the instructions regarding the distance between the external antenna and the receiver. Installed outside the house on the roof, the reception is great.

5 out of 5 eggsWorks Fine

Pros: Installation was simple. The coax cable is fine. No problems at all.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: I bought this because I have a metal building that I use as a workshop. I also live in the country where cell phone signal is not the best. I get one to three bars in my house, none in my workshop. I installed this in less than a half hour and instantly had four bars in my shop. I have no complaints so far.

4 out of 5 eggsPiece of Cake

Pros: Plugged it in, turned it on...everything works! Simple set-up and delivers as promised.

Cons: Doesn't do laundry, dishes or take out the trash.

Other Thoughts: We had a M-Cell from AT&T mobile in our shop and it never worked right. Managers have AT&T phones provided by the company. Staff have their own phones and contracts. This unit allows any signal available outside of our all metal structure to be pumped inside. AT&T, Verizon, T-Mobile, Sprint... everyone gets calls, texts and e-mails.

1 out of 5 eggsUseless

Pros: Cheaper than the alternatives

Cons: Everything. This product is garbage, IMHO. I noticed no discernible difference in my cellular signal when using this booster. Of course, when I called customer service, they informed me that, due to the fact that I did not get good service OUTSIDE my house, I would have to purchase a directional antenna for the booster to work properly. I had already spent over $200, so I decided to cut my loses and give it to a family member who does have good service outside their house. When I visited them a few months ago, I noticed the zBoost sitting in a pile of wires on a table. When I asked why they hadn't hooked it up yet, they told me that they had, but it didn't improve their service AT ALL so they took it down. I had even given them some decent RG7 coax, since the cable that comes with this device is utterly useless.

Other Thoughts: Save yourself some time and trouble, and go buy the Wilson brand booster instead of this one. That's what I ended up doing and it performs as advertised.

3 out of 5 eggsNot impressed

Pros: It does what it's supposed to and boosts your signal.

Cons: However, even when there seems to be no fluctuation in the base signal.... We checked this with a phone sitting by the antenna, other phones near the receiver were showing major fluctuations in their signal from 1-4 bars. The base signal was 1 bar during this. At a steady 1 bar on the signal, the booster would seem to be doing nothing at all one 1 minute and then go to 4 bars....

Other Thoughts: I realize that you can't boost a zero signal as no signal x 100 is still no signal. However, there is always a signal where I have this and it is all over the map.

5 out of 5 eggszBoost signal booster

Pros: Followed the directions and installed. On the last 4 feet of the height pole for the antenna I adapted and changed pole to PVC pipe to keep away from all metal. On the top of the PVC pipe i used a PVC pipe cap which i drilled and mounted the antenna directly through it. Also used larger cable to install, but it works like a dream. Its in my hunting camp and it is all covered tin - walls and roof. Before installing I only had 1 bar and sometimes 0, now I have 4-5 bars anywhere in the camp with perfect clarity. Does exactly what it says it will, simple to install and would highly recommend to anyone with a problem getting a signal outside to inside, but remember there has to be a signal outside, if not, you cant get something from nothing.

Cons: Install cable provided too small

Pros: Easy instructions

Quality parts

Excellent signal, speed

Cons: Requires 15ft vertical separation from antenna to base station.
