Rated 5 out of 5 by At last... After 10 months of no 4G service from a Verizon MiFi hotspot, at last I have one that works, and works well. The interface speed with the hotspot admin functions is a bit on the slow side and the default admin password is weak to say the least; but the throughput performance is light years ahead of the Verizon non-performer. Design-wise, it comes with its own usb cable wrapped around the outside and even has provision for a micro SD card. (I haven't figured out what that is used for yet.) It also has pretty good displays on the unit face. I wish there were ways to pick up messages right on the unit instead of having to log into the admin interface to pick them up. Throughput speeds are excellent and typically run 5-10 times faster than on the verizon network I have been using for months. That's enough to get my recommendation. July 23, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent performance and features in a stylish package I bought this to connect my cellphone and laptop while travelling in USA. I've got to say it is one of the best purchases I have made for months. The speed at which this thing boots up and connects to 4G is excellent and the download / upload speed achieved while using it are also first rate. The design of the device I like very much and the supplied cables (that are very cleverly hidden in the surround of the device rather than being add-ons you have to carry) are good for charging your cellphone on the go (although if you have an iPhone (I don't) you will have to carry your lightning connector). I found WiFi range to be very good, too. A colleague was able to connect to it from another hotel room on the next floor up. I also did a top-up of minutes in-store and that worked fine. The admin portal is ok, although there is another web portal you have to go to to see your data usage / remaining. June 12, 2014

Rated 3 out of 5 by Mostly nice with reservations Product works as expected with one glaring issue. In order to enable USB tethering you have to log in each time by wireless to reset the setting to USB tethering. Every restart of the device resets the setting back to media device. If you can log in with wireless why would you need to tether? Why does the setting not save like all the other settings in the device? I doubt Samsung will fix it as it has been out on the market for months and still does not work right. July 24, 2014
