This review is from: Wireless Extenders 800MHz Directional Outdoor Receiving Antenna YX026-CEL
Pros: I swapped out the unidirectional antenna that came with my YX500CEL and walla, constant signal. Trick is, get it pointed at the one tower you want to use. If you put it between towers, it's no better than the standard antenna. You don't need it real high, just figure out where your cellular services antenna is and get it pointed at it. I live in the middle of the woods, 3-miles from the tower, and I get 5-bars with this bad boy!
Cons: It's not included with the standard kit...READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Wireless Extenders White Signal Booster 800MHz YX500-CEL
Pros: I got like everyone else varying signal with the included omni directional antenna. It picks up all cell towers around and keeps roaming or something. My signal was all over the place. Once I got the Yagi antenna, pointed it at the US Cellular tower, 5-bars all the time now!
Cons: The included unidirectional antenna may work good, and I can get 5-bars on my phone with it, but the signal goes from 5-bars to 0-bars just sitting in the same place. People, the problem is not the system, but the antenna. Get the Yagi antenna made for this and aim accordingly, THEN it will work great for you!READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Consistent Quality
Other Thoughts: Paired it up with an older 250 GB WD hard drive for RAID 0 and it works great! RAID is the way to go!!READ FULL REVIEW
