This thing just works!

HAWKING HBB1 Broadband Booster
HAWKING HBB1 Broadband Booster

Pros: Okay, I've had this devices for three weeks now and I was completely skeptical when making the purchase. I use VOIP (SIP) on a regular basis as I live overseas. My connection was upgraded to the best DSL line I could get because I was tired of the lag and delay in my VOIP calls. Even after the upgrade I was still experiencing conversation delays and sometimes complete losses. I purchased the Broadband Booster to try and fix this problem. Contrary to it's name, it does not actually booster the speed of your broadband or give you more bandwidth. Actually what it does is organizes and prioritizes your communications making higher priority packets, such as VOIP, priority on your broadband connection.

Cons: The power adapter is only 110V. So for all you world travelers that travel with your VOIP phones, you have to get a 110-220V adapter.

Overall Review: After three weeks I've got to say I am surprised and impressed that this little box just works. It has consistently cleared up my conversations inbound and outbound. I don't do file sharing, but I do download a lot and it seems to make a difference there too. But, its main benefit is from streaming packets and not loosing any. Hawking Technology has a winner here!
