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.
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).
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.
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.
We had good response from our cable boxes, but when we upgraded to HD and DVR service, we began to experience random losses of the online guide, no response from OnDemand, and occasional times our tv shows would get blocky and stutter. A call to Customer Disservice got us a basic one-way amplifier installed, which helped in some ways, and glitched out worse in others. Internet became slower than dialup, OnDemand would never respond. After doing some research, I discovered that an amplifier must be able to amplify and allow the signal to go BOTH WAYS - I know, right? Once I figured that out, I knew exactly what the problem was - no need to pay $85 for some dummy to spend 7 minutes in the house making the problem worse! Forget the service call, I'll fix it myself! (And if I don't fix it, I'll be the only one that knows, right?)
So I ordered this beauty, and as soon as it arrived, I unboxed and installed it (and yanked that Cable Provider amp out). Instantly, internet connections were normal, OnDemand functioned perfectly, and we've never had problems with the guide. I installed it as the first and only splitter, operating one 30' cable to my modem, one 40' cable to my mother's bedroom (and split from there another 20' to my bedroom), and a third 150' run to a tv outside, and it was able to do this all flawlessly. (Well, ok, the outside tv was SD, connected to a digital cable box, but audio, video, guide, OnDemand worked perfectly!)

Exactly what I need and works great. Comcast would not issue a signal booster and wanted to just come out and run another line and charge me for it. Read morePublished 21 months ago by Jared West

Works well. Since I am using it at the shore, I am not sure about the F fitting carrying DC power, but time will tell.Published on April 1, 2014 by Colin J. Horton
