zBoost SOHO Xtreme Dual-band cell phone signal booster up to 5500 sq. ft. ZB545x
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

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.
