    It works and it’s inexpensive compared to other sat wifi units but I had a couple issues connecting. After messing with it I figured out the issue but thought it might be easier. Since troubleshooting connecting has been a cinch since, though.

    Great product. Other than having todo a firm ware update, it was easy to setup. I connected via my iPhone and also use ftp from my windows 10 laptop.

    Works as expected. Set-up is easy for tech-savy and doable for the less-experienced. Quick start guide tells you all you need. We use ours out a south-facing open window with no problem. The product is designed for easy pointing, especially with the free smart phone app. Be aware that this locks on to a geostationary satellite, which means the receiver itself cannot be moved around without losing the signal. The literature makes this clear, but perhaps bears repeating. The ability to link to several smart phones, tablets, or computers at once is especially valuable. Bandwidth is adequate for internet communication. Again, the literature makes this clear but bears repeating. Once fixed on a signal, the unit operates pretty much like any other wifi hotspot. You can change the passwords, connect devices, and move them around. Battery life is reasonable. Good job.
