Summary: I purchased this for business and a SonicWALL back up WAN. The Verizon USB 4G modem plugs right in and out of the box, worked great! I had to configure the SonicWALL for a secondary WAN, but amazing. The only issue is VPN pass through and the Cradlepoint did it's job great, but I had to pay Verizon a 1 time charge of 500.00 to make a static IP on the USB 4G Modem. Now all of my VPN tunnels fail over great. Amazing little device!!
Summary: I live in my RV and this unit has been really great! My internet access is always through Broadband 3G/4G/LTE. Cradlepoint is one of the few routers that can do WIFI over WAN. That means I can connect all my systems through the park's WIFI or my own Broadband connections. They are pretty expensive, which is the only drawback. They are more designed for businesses at a mall when you loose cabled internet access, but still works great in the home as well.
Summary: I didn't have good luck with the MBR1200 or 95 models, but this one is awesome! I have never had a router with such an awesome range, and throughput speed is excellent. It rarely needs reboot, and it's usually the USB modem, not the router. (knock on wood) It's doing well, and hope to have years of good service with this unit.
Summary: I bought this unit to replace a Cradlepoint CTR35 which didn't have enough power and range for my usage. This router has more than enough USB ports but I only need one port to plug my Rocket 3.0 usb aircard into. Highly recommended if you want ample wifi power and stability.
Too bad I can't rewind the clock and buy another router

Summary: I feel like I just paid $350 for a downgrade from my previous router. Basically functionality requires a subscription service and the signal strength is awful compared to the cheap router I replaced it with! Apparently, I have to pay to enable OpenVPN, L2TP, etc on this router. I took it for granted that this basic functionality would come standard on such an expensive router since it does on many others that are half the price.
Summary: I purchased this last week for better reliability issues. I am a remote, work from home, employee for a very large Texas based IT company. One of the products I support is an operating system deployment server appliance. For this to work, I need to be able to add PXE boot settings in the router's DHCP server. This is an advertised feature of the MBR1400. However, I am unable to get this to work. I have tried two different PXE servers.
Summary: I have configured dozens of wired and wireless routers in my lifetime and this device gave me more trouble than all the others combined. Wired, everything worked great. Wireless, nothing I owned would connect to it, even in public/open mode (yes, that means no security at all). This looks likes a great router. A work colleague spoke highly of it (but admitted later that he never used it for wireless). I gave this device way more time than it deserved. Support?
Summary: I've used a Cradlepoint MBR-1000 for quite a while for single WAN/Wireless (3G) failover. That was fine until I needed TWO broadband internet connections so I could keep doing my work from home reliably. So, I looked around, tried the Netgear FVS336G and used the NetGear for the Cable modem in one WAN port, and the Cradlepoint with the DSL/3G in the other WAN port. Then my Netgear died. Then came the MBR-1400.
Summary: Use it to load balance between a satellite connection and a mobile broadband connection in a remote area and the functionality is great, I'm really happy with the purchase. I would recommend it to anyone looking to use multiple WANs or needing to use mobile broadband as failover. My only complaint is the price could have been a little lower.
