Pros: Easily set up and hidden. We live in a depression and have a metal roof. previously had possibly 1 bar and had to go outside to make calls and had to maintain landline. now 4 to 5 bars inside and no land line ,so product has paid for itself already.
Cons: Locating and attaching antenna was only difficulity to get best reception.
Good product but get the kit with directional antenna!

Summary: * Does NOT come with in-line lightning arrestor... That's mandantory for something up on your roof that's hooked up to several hundred $ worth of electronics! 2 different lighting arrestors are available - 1 for the omni-directional antenna and 1 for the directional antenna. If I understand correctly; the lightning arrestors have a different type connector than the included RG6 cable - which means ordering those as well. Grrr.
Pros: * Does what it says it will do - amplifies your available outside signal and sends the boosted signal to your inside antenna(s).
Cons: * - GET THE DIRECTIONAL / YAGI ANTENNA KIT! The kit I ordered has an omni-directional external antenna which works but you cannot aim it toward the nearest cell tower. The omni antenna is ok if you have a good signal outside but if you're in a marginal area you'll spend all day on a ladder looking for a 'good signal'. (If you've been going outside to answer calls, you'll likely have a general idea where this spot is but may not be able to mount an antenna there.)
