+ Simple to install and use - no complicated connections, adjustments or set-up to perform.
+ All connections clearly labeled and easy to understand.
+ Green LED indicates power status.
+ Comes with its own power supply, although you may need to purchase a "power inserter" if there is no plug near where you need to install this.
+ Completely weather resistant for either outdoor or attic installations.
- I wish it used a simpler/easier power cable instead of needing another chunk of CATV coax cable for the power supply.
- If the power goes out, no signal gets through at all. But as long as you have electricity the signal boost is excellent.
= Be sure to purchase a few caps to prevent signal leakage if you are not using all of the output ports.
= If you install it outside, you can paint it to match if you like; just don't get any paint on any of the ports and it is best to keep the power LED visible so you can check the booster's status if you ever have any problems.
= If you have cable internet, this may not be the correct model to use. Look for Motorola Signal Booster than provides two-way amplified communications otherwise you may have connectivity issues.
Overall this is a simple, solid and reliable product for what it needs to do, and if it is what you need then I can highly recommend it.
We have 60 MBps available at a rural location. I needed the whole house to be fed from a TimeWarner feed for both digital cable and internet. I didn't want to mess around. This does the job well. Just be sure to use quality cable and connections in the house, terminate unused ones, and get good equipment. The system is only as weak as the weakest link. This will not be it.
Also, we recently cut the cord on our cable (^%&$ Spectrum) and went streaming / internet only. We fed our attic antenna into this and BADABING we get 34 clear channels to all the TVs. (The internet connection part is split before this.)
Update: 24 August 2015 Still working great. Even in the hot attic in South Texas. Once minor note. Although it claims to be Motorola, the product I received was branded as Arris...but otherwise appeared to be identical.
Well, I started doing my own DVR on my computer and noticed a couple of channels that were HORRIBLE. They were very choppy and impossible to tolerate on my computer (using an HDHomeRun Prime tuner) - the FIOS equipment didn't have a problem with those channels for some reason. This tuner (the HD HomeRun Prime) has some built in diagnostics, and I could see that the specific channels I was having issues with didn't have a strong signal. So I re-installed this device on my FIOS setup and it cured my problem. A 75-80% signal went to 95%. The picture was much clearer and flawless. It even allows my internet signal and on-demand two-way communication to pass upstream (FIOS only as far as I've tested)
So, it does work, but it's only worth it if you can identify your need.
My set up: (2) of the flat square Mohu Leaf not amplified, (1) splitter to bring (2) antenna into (1) output, (1) Motorolla Signal Booster Splitter and the necessary coax cable. For better reception, I placed the (2) Mohu leaf in different areas of the room.
(2) Mohu leaf into simple splitter for dual antenna converted to one output, single coax from Mohus splitter to Motorolla splitter, from Motorolla splitter to TV in living room and to TV in bedroom. 140+ Channels. Channels look better than via my Time Warner Cable box.
Though, I had to block many of them by choice due to no interest in the content. Got points from wife and kids and I save tons of money because HD TV is free.
