5 out of 5 eggsSOHO Cell Booster

Pros: Easy Installation, Decent Coverage for my two story home. I went from half a bar to three bars in most locations we use our mobile phones. When all of my family are here we all get good cell coverage for ATT, Sprint and Verizon. Stucco homes are pretty good Faraday shields so this option was a good solution to otherwise poor reception. I don't have to go outside to the garden shed to use my phone anymore.

Cons: Wall mount antenna is not omni-directional which makes it difficult to locate for optimal coverage in a larger (2700 sq ft) two story structure.

Other Thoughts: Overall the SOHO Xtreme Cell Booster Kit YX545x performs well, as advertised. This is probably not something for "Joe Sixpack" to install. I used to install antenna systems during my college days at Michigan State. Mounting an outside antenna in the right place correctly should be done by someone with previous experience as this is the weak link in getting the same number of bars inside the structure as you have outside. Other reviewers have stated, and I agree, don't expect to get more bars inside if you can't get them outside. At best you can expect a one for one installation.

4 out of 5 eggsWorks for me

Pros: Went from 0-1 bars to 3-5.

Cons: A little pricey. Did not buy from Newegg.

Other Thoughts: Had to find a place that had 4-5 bars to mount the antenna. Once it was up and connected no problem.

5 out of 5 eggsBest thing for cell phones since batteries!

Pros: Works great at my house and covers all the major providers. I went from 2 bars outside and 0 inside to now full service inside. I did have to get the upgraded directional outdoor antennas, however.

Cons: I find it a little pricey but for what it does, it's well worth it and cheaper than other options.

Other Thoughts: Most problems I had with my unit were attributed to poor antenna location or just poor location in general. I didn't notice much of a boost at first but I'm also in a mountainous area with poor reception for everything. After adding the directional outdoor antennas, it was a night-and-day difference.

1 out of 5 eggsdoes not work

Pros: Easy set up

Cons: This does not work. Because of 3 different people working for 3 different companies we have 3 different cell phone providers. At our home we have between 0 & 2 antenna bars and with the zboost there was o change, Still unable to rely on the cell phones.
