zBoost really boosts,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: zBoost ZB545 SOHO Dual Band Cell Phone Signal Booster for Home and Office, up to 2,500 sq. ft. (Wireless Phone Accessory)
This is my first time submitting a review for a product and I am only doing so because of how satisfied I am with the zBoost SOHO YX545 cellular extender. I work from a home office located in the lower level of my home and the company I work for only supplies me with a cell phone, no LAN connection. For the times that I am not able to use my personal home phone line I am forced to use my cell phone for making work calls. The signal on my device was only 1-2 bars when leaning towards the window in my office. If I moved around in the office or even turned my head I would often drop calls or my device would try to lock in on a lower frequency and cause the line to emit weird sounds. I was a little hesitant to shell out $300 for a booster but can honestly say this device works as described, and I am completely satisfied. The key to success is that the remote antenna has to be positioned in a place that obtains an acceptable signal. I just went outdoors with my cell phone and found where I could get the best signal on the phone. I then mounted the antenna close to this location and then positioned the receiver in the lower level of my home near my office. I now get 4-5 bars on my phone in places that I got none. Great product, now I just need to figure out how to get my boss to pay for it!
