"Running almost non stop > 6 mo. for family use."4.0 starson by tex_ag89
Pros: It is smaller than an empty wallet, and it has been running for 6 + months being used by the family. Three computers are running for 4+ hours per day. It beats satellite internet option hands down. Running Skype, email, online videos often.
Cons: It runs "HOT", and has me concerned on longevity of the product. Portability can attribute to "Losing It". Other users have commented on battery life. Do not use 3G for high volume business.
Summary: The MiFi2200 is a good unit. It can run 23.97 hours per day for > 6 months so far by the family(3+)computers often. The "HOT" temperature leaves some concern on the longevity of the product. Be cautioned on battery life from the other reviews. We are in an area without DSL/Cable. The kid and wife screamed for 3 hours a day with satellite internet, now they only scream about 3 minutes per day in peak hours. VOIP, streaming videos is all good for the most part. Remember that the complaints other than battery life, and heat are most likely ISP (throttling) related. This unit is always in one location of the house, but can be placed anywhere.
