  • Pros: Small, unobtrusive base station design, easy setup

  • Summary: I live in a 70 year old dormitory so maybe building structure has something to do with it. I don't know. I would return it but Newegg policy on this item is No refunds only exchange.

  • Cons: It only works when your phone is right next to the antenna. It is rather bulky and they use poor quality materials for something so simple and of this price.
