4.0 out of 5 stars Good performance but PAYG cost a bit high 19 Jan 2011
By Comical Engineer TOP 500 REVIEWER
Got this to replace a totally useless Vodafone equivalent. 3 have a much better coverage than Vodafone for G connection.

Good points:
* Easy to set up, worked straight out the box
* Easily accessible SIM card
* Good data transfer rate
* Good coverage

Bad points:
* Top-ups only last for 30 days which is very poor for an occasional user like myself
* Option for an occasional user 2 per day tariff is still a bit pricey

* Good performance at a price.
* Much better than the Vodafone equivalent

4.0 out of 5 stars Works well 8 Nov 2010
Verified Purchase
Seems to work well, good signal, data rates not always good during evening hours but works very fast after midnight. But I've managed to RDP in to my work computer a few times!! Not a replacement for "proper" broadband of course.

Also works well on my Macbook Pro and my Windows 7 PC. You can buy more data packages through the device itself. When the allowance runs out it still connects to Three and you can purchase difference data packages to suit your needs using a browser and a credit/debit card.

One more thought: You might want to turn off Windows/Mac updates before using this device!

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant... saved my sanity! 27 Sep 2011
Verified Purchase
This item was recommended to me for use with my laptop whilst in hospital for several weeks. It was so simple to set up, easy to use and very reliable. Downloading a lot of games or films etc, I'd used up the 1G in 10 days but then, with less downloading, a 15 top-up (for 3G) lasted me 5 weeks. A lot of visitors to the ward asked me how to get internet access and I recommended this dongle to everyone. The only drawback is if you don't want to make purchases online and need to top-up using a voucher, they are not easy to buy. You have to ask someone to find an official "three" shop. It would be ideal if vouchers were sold at petrol stations, newsagents, supermarkets etc... otherwise no complaints!

I brought this as i was moving house, and would be without the internet for 2 weeks. This was so easy to install and use. Also this seems to be very good value to use. I would recommend it.

3.0 out of 5 stars Linux compatible - up to a point 6 Oct 2011
I am now using this for my everyday internet usage, and it works fine. Here in rural Derbyshire, I get up to about 1.1Mbps download and up to 0.8Mbps upload speed, which is adequate for my needs.
It took quite a lot of fiddling and 'Googling' to get it to work on Linux, but now that I have it going, I can connect/disconnect at the click of a button.
I can't use it to send or receive SMS messages though, which is I believe possible in other operating systems.
In summary, it does what I need for now.

5.0 out of 5 stars Faster than the speed of light! 8 Sep 2011

Was going to purchase a Vodafone dongle but reviews all said how rubbish it was, so went with 3 instead. It's brilliant. Always has full signal and connection time is very rapid. It's fantastic when you're out and about there doesn't seem to be anywhere you can't get a full signal. Highly recommended. 20 out of 10!!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Very stable, strong Internet connection 17 Sep 2011
Just great! I bought this dongle for being on the road. Didn't know that I would need it so soon and urgently at home, because our Internet provider had problems. I work from home and therefore need a stable connection. Without this dongle I would have sit in my home without being able to work fro three days! Great wee machine!
