zBoost Trio SOHO - Tri-band AT&T 4G cell phone signal booster, up to 2,500 sq. ft. ZB575-A

2 out of 5 eggs Good Proof of Concept But falls short 03/21/2015

This review is from: zBoost Trio SOHO - Tri-band AT&T 4G cell phone signal booster, up to 2,500 sq. ft. ZB575-A

Pros: I want to like this unit, I really do but it is lacking in several areas: see cons
As a result less than stellar review. I live in a rural area (a valley and about 50 ft below where signal is good), in order to get a reasonable signal the antenna was pole mounted 35 ft from ground level.
After installation I was able to send/receieve voice calls and text messages from inside. Also 4G went from 3 to 5 bars, Speed testing on my Nexus 7 tablet 4g speeds test went from 1-3 mbps up to 12-15. A nice win. Sadly my HTC One M8 win phone didn't make it to the party 3G reception appears to be a marginal improvement and still can't get a reliable data connection.
Boosted signal from -108 dbm to 85 when up close to inside antenna

Plusses- compact unit, easy to install, no complicated setup/configuration processes.

Cons: Minuses - Cut a few too many corners to reduce production costs. Missing very important a coax weather shield, Power supply cable is a joke, 3ft seriously?
Mfg states every thing you need, a lie since a vital keep part was missing- a water proof connector shield for outside antenna. if you buy this plan on adding a extension cord. inside antenna, not good for much, other than demo'ing
Mfg states 2500 sq ft coverage, it's more like 1 room. With base unit in different room little gain was realized, only when I sat next to unit did I see much improvement. Very particular on placement, wall mounting was not permitted- kept getting a orange led condition, Table top with no other items seem the only place.

Other Thoughts: Perhaps missing a complicated setup/configuration processes is what the unit needs? the base unit should be sold separately so you can add the appropirate cable and antennas. RG-11 ultra low loss cable should be used by default. While it improved Voice probably sms and 4g, didn't have as big of an effect on 3g which is all my phone can support at the moment,
Doesn't support Verizon or other providers that don't follow AT&T's band allocation- why other units in same price range do? Plan on spending another $200 for better antennas

Omron BP710N 3 Series Upper Arm Blood Pressure Monitor with Cuff that fits Standard and Large Arms
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: cheap

Cons: Cheap and highly inaccurate. Have taken 3 readings, each time a highly different reading. Then contacted cust sppt, even after following their instructions I can't trust the readings this device provides. Got a RMA approved but considering cost to return vs the cost to buy, the only place this device is going to be delivered to is the trash can

Other Thoughts: Don't buy this item, unless you really don't care how inaccurate it is.

Enermax ETS-T40-BK Black 120mm Twister CPU Cooler with TB Apollish Blue LED PWM Fan
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: see title, i7-3770K was running at 55-58C, now at 40 - 45 C same load

Cons: had to remove mother board to complete installation. fairly tall

Other Thoughts: only has 4/8 cooling tubes, an older thermal take I purchased many years ago has 6/12 for same sized unit, black with blue led fans looks much better than a non plated unit
