Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: TP-LINK M5350 3G Mi-Fi Hotspot, High Speed Wi-Fi Unlocked Modem (HSPA+, 21.6 Mbps, 2000 mAh Internal Battery and LED Display) (Accessory)
Used a dongle on a laptop for several trips abroad but didn't work last summer in Croatia with a local SIM and couldn't get it sorted. As we're travelling around Europe quite a bit this summer decided to go for this so I can use it to connect our netbook, mobiles and iPad if we want to take any of them, as we don't usually stay in hotels with WiFi, we're self catering people. I bought a EuropaSIM card which gives very cheap rates, it all took a little while to set up I have to say, mostly because the instructions with the SIM for setting up the APN were vague, and it took a while to figure out that the SIM was unlocked and needed a PIN code. More rifling through online manuals and documents, but really all related to the SIM rather than this device. Once I'd sorted that, I was online, connected phones and iPad, all worked perfectly.
It does get a little warm in use, and I don't know how long it will work on battery, we only tried it for half an hour. But all in all a neat solution (it's very small). It did drop out once but I just switched it off and on again and we were back online.
