"Great reception--you MUST manage it online"4.0 starson by mcnevich
Pros: Used to get 0 or 1 bar throughout my house--now I get full bars throughout the house, and about 75 feet in front and behind house.
Cons: Even if you mange your extender online, other callers who are not on your preferred cell numbers list can use it without your knowledge so if you live in an apartment/townhouse/condo, your close neighbors will be using it also.
Summary: Uptime so far has been 99%--it only went down for a brief period since I got it (system wide outage on Verizon's part). While you can manage the extender on your verizon online account, others within range can use it without your knowledge--the numbers you put in are given preferred access. One good feature is that anyone within range can use your signal for a 911 call. I didn't have to use the included GPS wire that is supposed to be attached to a window because I have it set up in a room that has a skylight right above it. If you live in a multi-level home i would suggest putting it on the middle or top floor so you get great reception throughout your house. Make sure you put the unit at least 10 feet from your wireless router to avoid interference. Try to set it up in a room with window access in case you need to use the GPS wire because the wire is long but no extremely long.
