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

5 out of 5 eggsSOHO YX545

Pros: The yx545 is a great product, it does exactly what it is suppose to do, “boost the best cell signal you can achieve from outside of your home/business and broadcast/transmit it indoors where the signal may be deficient. If you don’t already have a good cell signal “outside” of your home/business then this will most likely not help you. In my situation the cell quality (Verizon or ATT) was so bad my family’s cell phones would not work in our home and we had to go outside most of the time to get enough signal to make a call (let alone receive data). While the coverage map in our area showed us in a 3G area for ATT and 4G for Verizon, we were lucky on a “good day” to get a single bar of 3G standing outside of our home due to our home being surrounded by trees. We ended up mounting our outdoor antenna about 6 feet above our houses roof line approximately 24 feet in the air and this made a huge deference in our reception. My family and I have now had the yx545 installed in our home for almost a year now and if we are in the same room with the yx545 base we can get about 3 bars of 3G signal during the summer and about 4 bars during the winter. The closer you are to the base the better the signal is and this is true of any booster on the market. Our area does not have high speed internet so we have an ATT 875U (USB) Air Card attached to a NETGEAR 3G/UMTS MOBILE BROADBAND WIRELESS-N ROUTER MBRN3000. This was our only option to get internet in our home and while it is slow, it does allow us to stream most videos as long as we are not using the high quality video setting (480/720), and we can also receive emails with attachments now. This would not be possible without the Zboost yx545, it is incredible. While my installation of the outside antenna using a mast above the roof line may be a bit too advance for the average user, it may be a good idea to get a local contractor/handy man to do this type of installation if necessary, otherwise the standard installation instructions in the box will most likely help you identify the optimum installation for your situation and hopefully an easy install. Also, please note that cellular signals are directional and you should look for the path of least resistance between your antenna and your cell tower. For my family we found the north side of our house has the best natural signal by walking around the outside of our house with our cell phones pausing long enough to make a call and checking the signal meter on the phone.
Not trying to make this sound like a sales pitch but I had a hard time reading “the few” negative posts about how the unit did not work out of the box or the quality was cheap when it was so apparent they had no clue what they were doing or talking about. As for the quality ok sure the base unit is plastic (like everything else in life). To me it looks fine and does not take up a lot of space and the cost was about $200 for the complete kit. If you have $1500 to $3000 to waste on a pretty metal bo

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: The antenna cable that comes with the kit is average quality and works fine but you may find a better quality coax cable will help achieve a better signal.
