This is my first long-term experience with a dongle so it is possible that the small niggles are well-known to regular users. It was needed to give 3G or 4G connectivity to a router with a security camera attached so I was unable to use my usual faultless mi-fi. Set-up was simple but the main niggle is the need to re-boot occasionally for no obvious reason. It doesn't appear to be a network issue but almost something that the dongle needs to do. It is also used on a travelling laptop at the moment because I had taken advantage of a huge short-term gigabyte offer and it takes a little more setting up each time it is switched on than my usual mi-fi. Most importantly it does seem to be pretty good at picking up a signal in our weak rural reception area (3G only) and worked brilliantly when staying at a hotel with a strong 3G signal. I haven't visited anywhere that seemed to have a 4G signal so can't verify its capability there. To sum up, it does a good job but I realise that I should have paid somewhat more for a new router that would take a SIM because of my particular requirements.

This dongle is very good. I purchased the version sold directly from Amazon and it was not carrier branded or loaded with a carrier's own version of the firmware. I coupled this with the EE 6GB 90 day PAYG SIM and it works fine. The device automatically selects GPRS, 3G or 4G. You can over ride this to force a selection in the firmware. There is an indicator light on the top which goes red when you plug the dongle in as it starts up. This then goes to a solid colour to indicate the type of connection. For example green is 4G. When the light starts to flash that means it is connected and you can browse and email. The lights are Red: Start Up, Green, 4G, Blue 3G. Not sure of the colour for GPRS as I have not tried it.

The firmware is very easy to use and shows total web usage meters and has the ability to store names and numbers to the SIM and there is a facility to send text messages. Can't try that as I have a data only SIM.

Lastly, a really cool feature is the fact that as well as being a mobile dongle the device also can take a Micro SD card and doubles as a flash USB drive. I purchased the Samsung EVO Plus 64GB the following day when I discovered this neat addition. This is also working fine.

So to sum up. A dongle you can own on a PAYG data system without the need to take out any lengthy contracts which can double as a USB flash drive.

i bought this to replace my Three dongle which came with the contract its meant to be a 4g dongle (old one). However been looking at this one for months if not years so thought its a good price so i bought it. So worth the money !!! 50mbps 4g connection its so fast and responsive and dead easy to use dont normally do reviews this quick but this was worth the review and the money

What an amazing device. After some initial problems because it has generic instructions on setup I have managed to get it working with a tplink 4g router. Connected to EE in the uk I have managed to get speeds better than BT infinity 1. Almost 34 downstream and 7 upstream. I have high expectations that when I connect the external antenna to it that the speed is going to increase again.

Using this on Windows 10 on the Three network, and in terms of speed it's a big improvement over my Huawei E220. I'm not getting a 4G signal where I am, but regardless I am getting download speeds of more than 12Mb on 3G/WCDMA. The device itself doesn't feel entirely robust though, with a very plasticky case. The sliding cover for the SIM compartment doesn't feel as though it will stand up to much use and would probably become loose very quickly. The software interface is web based, but a dedicated application would be better for monitoring current usage (I like to keep an eye on how much bandwidth is being used at any given time).

This was a BT branded ZTE (not unbranded as advertised) however it was exactly the model described and works with the EE SIM I have. So it was what I wanted because I couldn't find this model of ZTE anywhere else, so I got what I wanted - just with the BT logo :)

Very happy with this 4G dongle. Works flawlessly with my TP-LINK TL-MR3420. I get ~25Mbps downlink on speedtest.net with only two bars LTE reception. Worked straight away without having to enter any settings. Easy to configure/see status using the inbuilt web interface.

Product received was an unlocked ZTE MF823 4G dongle. However it was not a generic ZTE model as expected but an O2 branded device with the O2 logo on it - see picture. The internal webui anagement software is also O2, not generic ZTE. The box it came in says Hilink. The item was sold by Eternal Communications Ltd and fulfilled by Amazon.

The product does work - I used it with EE and 3 SIM cards on a PC and also with a TP-Link TL-MR3420 router in a low signal area with an aerial connected to the USB dongle. So 4 stars for the product functionality reduced to 2 stars for the delivery of a O2 branded product instead of the generic manufacturer version.
