4 out of 5 eggsZBoost Metro YX540

Pros: Small, unobtrusive base station design, easy setup

Cons: Description on billing CHANGED AFTER PURCHASE! after order completed, unit description on order became YX540 R (refurbished? Returned? Repackaged?) Prior to checkout, no "R" was mentioned.
Bulky interior antenna design, range was a little disappointin

Other Thoughts: The unit i recieved helped out quite a bit, no dropped calls, good bars for 11 feet from the base. 1500 sqare feet sounds pretty large, but is actually a 21 foot radius. Obstructing the path to the base unit and the antenna also helps, as you dont want the base to be able to transmit to the recieving antenna, which will trigger power limiting. For me, the price was a gamble, as I had never seen one of these in use. I'm happy with the product, but not the way the billing paperwork changed after I bought it.

1 out of 5 eggsit really does suck

Pros: cheap

Cons: does not work

Other Thoughts: I am an Electronics engineer with 15 years experience in the radio field. I set this unit up as per instructions. It does not transmit. as mentioned in a previous post, it only works if you place your phone in direct contact with the antenna.

1 out of 5 eggsWorks in close proximity

Pros: It Works. Read on.

Cons: It only works when your phone is right next to the antenna. It is rather bulky and they use poor quality materials for something so simple and of this price.

Other Thoughts: I live in a 70 year old dormitory so maybe building structure has something to do with it. I don't know. I would return it but Newegg policy on this item is No refunds only exchange. I get 0-2 bars without the booster and 0-5 bars with the booster (When right next to the booster my phone has to literaly touch the antenna to get more than 2 bars) So yes it works but not as described. Definitely not 1500 sq. ft.
