Product Description

The PCT-VC series provides full compatibility with all cable TV services. The VC-5U provides an alternative to the higher priced Electroline FT08300, while providing some additional capabilites that other products cannot provide. The VC-5U provides a full set of 4 amplified output ports. Each port carries the exact same signal level as the input port carries - in both the forward and reverse directions. This unique design makes the VC-5U a true lossless splitter in both directions, allowing you to connect virtually any cable TV device and enjoy worry-free operation. All 4 ports can be used for any type of device including a cable modem. The VC-5U also provides a Modem Bypass port. The bypass port allows you to connect any device to the amplifier (usually a cable modem or VoIP phone device) and insure operation of that device in the event of a power failure.The amplifier is surge protected (when properly grounded) and waterproof. It also has a unique mounting design that allows the amplifier to be mounted either horizontally or vertically with two separate sets of mounting brackets. This provides you with the best options for mounting the amplifier anywhere inside or outside your home. Supports operation from -40 degress to +140 degrees Fahrenheit. The amplifier can be powered from any location using an optional (not included) PCT power inserter. Power supply is included.

I have Comcast for my cable company. I was using an Electroline EDA-2100 signal booster/amplifier with a 4-way splitter and Comcast's digital cable boxes for four tv's. Everything was working fine.

I then replaced one of the digital boxes with a HD Receiver. The on demand and search functions on the HD Receiver (both of which require a strong return signal back to cable company) would not work. I replaced the Electroline with the PCT-VC-5U signal booster/amplifier with active return and am now able to use the on demand and search functions.

I would highly recommended this PCT-VC-5U.

After rerouting some of my coaxial cable lines to far-flung TV sets in the house (some of which I had to resort to over-the-air broadcasts because of the coaxial routing resulting in too many splitters), I then installed the PCTVC5U as close as possible to the in-house coaxial cable entry point from the cable company. I connected the modem to the bypass outlet port which does not receive any amplification. If I had VoIP phone service, I would probably move the modem to an amplified port and run the VoIP line through the non-amplified port.

NOTE! Per instructions, this unit is intended for use on cable TV systems, NOT satellite. They say that by connecting this product to a satellite system, you can damage the amplifier and void the warranty. Also, they do NOT recommend using this lossless amplifier with an Antenna system. For Antenna systems, they recommend a "passive return" amplifier such as PCT-MA2-4P.

This unit is heavy duty and well built. The instructions were very clear, useful and thorough. After installation, I was able to receive cable on all TV sets throughout the 3-level house without any problem.

For those here who say "no power adapter", the power adapter is in the bottom of the box under a layer of cardboard. If you don't look carefully, you can miss it and throw it out with the packaging. Also, the power adapter does NOT come with a power cord for use between the adapter and the unit. You supply a section of coaxial cable which serves as the low voltage power cord. On the other hand, if you didn't receive a power adapter, it sounds like they were quite responsive when you called them.

I had some major cable signal issues throughout my house, and despite a new ground line, splitting the main drop without an amplifier would make it impossible for some of our outlets to receive the signal they needed. I had a early-2000s era Radio Shack amplifier, but it wasn't really intended to be used in conjunction with a cable modem. I had to find a better option, but I didn't want to spend $$$ on some of the active return amplifiers being offered.

After some research I settled on this PCT model, since it was lossless, compatible with modems, and didn't introduce any extra noise. Installation was fairly simple and having a power adapter that uses a coax cable made it easy for me to get the right size. I didn't opt to use the Bypass Feature, but it's nice to know it's there. After installing, I noticed marked improvements in signal level, SNR, and upstream power. Does this translate to better, faster, internet? No, but it's certainly more stable, and now all outlets in my house are capable of transmitting digital signals now that Comcast has turned off analog signals.

Running solid for a month with no issues, and the 5-year warranty will ensure my happiness for some time (just make sure to buy from a qualified vendor).

Had issues with my cable companies uplink noise ratios. Well, normally when the cable comes into the house they use a splitter to split off the cable TV from the cable that goes to the Internet modem. The splitter itself loses 3db which is 1/2 of the signal.

This unit is not an amp but a unity amp. In other words, what goes in comes out all the ports at the same signal level that it went into. No splitter loss! So by using this I literally DOUBLED the output power of my modem talking to the cable company and the Internet access is now much more stable.

In the description it clearly states that it comes with a power supply, but no power supply was included. This product is virtually useless as I need it to be powered to do what I need to do with it. I emailed the company and they said some of product they received from the manufacturer did not contain the power supply and there is no way of know which ones they are. They are friendly and give prompt service as they sent the power supply to me right away after contacting them by email. I would recommend buying for the price and for a little inconvience. I would have given 5 stars if I did not receive the product with a power converter.

This product may be good, but I could not tell as it was shipped without AC adapter. Email sent to seller went unanswered; their web site was out of service (for 2 days now) so could not get phone number. This is not a serious company, will be sending product back. Called Amazon, they were of no help either. I also attempted to contact the manufacturer; I left voicemail, sent email to 3 different departments - no response whatsoever. Not pleased at all.

Update February 16, 2013: today in my mailbox was the AC adapter sent from seller. Interesting how they never answered my email asking them to ship this, if they would have it would've stopped me from shipping the unit back. Too little, too late.
