Verizon MiFi 2200 – Review
People don’t always like when I say what’s up guys, so instead of any introduction I think I’m just going to go ahead and babble nervously.
So, the variety of MiFi 2200 really is a very cool device as long as you’re maybe not familiar with —did you happen to see some of my prior videos? Let me recap what this does and there’s a French version of this as well.
It takes Verizon’s EVDO run a network, so there are 3G networks essentially. It’s an accident, cased it out as a Wi-Fi signal that up to five people can connect to, so that you’ll use Verizon’s Wi-Fi signal really wherever you are.
So, let’s talk about some of the positive of the device. It is really small and very comfortable. It’s about the size a credit card stuff which is quite nice. You could very easily slide this in your backpack, your purse, your back pocket, your main purse wherever you want and it’s not going to take up that much of room.
Battery life is relatively strong in four hours using 1150-milliampere power battery. It’s something huge, but it does have a Micro USB port, so you can plug this into a computer actually to let you to charge while it’s working which is quite nice.
I’ve also been very impressed with Verizon wireless’s data speeds. I ran a speed test last week sort of showing how quick things work and the pages loaded very fast. It was quite impressive certainly for everyday browsing and emailing.
This is going to be almost as fast as your regular broadband spins even if you’re megabits per second are crazy faster or crazy slower. You know when you just look at the website you know, CNN whatever that you are looking you can wave this thing around. It’s going to load very fast. It’s quick enough even for some mobile gaming you try to use this for Xbox live at play station network or whatever. You do in Nintendo because these are things, this can actually work for it.
Some of the downsides of the device itself, I wish I had a battery indicator. I have no idea how much battery is left on here without an external screen to sort of show it or a button that you push for some LED lights I’ve got no way of time when the battery is going to die, it will just die.
It’s got a light that blinks when it let you know it was connected, but other than that that’s about it for external indicators. I actually wish like it sorts to tell what the battery life was. Further the device itself goes that’s really the only negative that I have with it. It does exactly what you expected to do exactly as advertised.
So, let’s talk about of the plans the things that you need to get with this. Well, you can buy this on contract meaning you’re paying a less if you’re signing your two year contract, so you can get it as essentially just the cell phone, same concept as the plans. You can sign a contract, pay a subsidized lower price and you’re stuck into a one or two-year contract with the set rates each month. In the MiFi’s case you can get five gigs and it’s not five gigs the storage base. It is five gigs of a bandwidth, so it’s five gigs up or down per month for $60.00 or $40.00 per month, you can get 250 megabytes which is totally crazy.
If you get the 250 megabits try the megabytes, and you go over which yeah, definitely will you’re going to be paying 10 cents per megabyte over which is huge. If you get the $60.00 five-gig plan, you’re only paying five cents per megabyte over.
So, people say you know five-gigs that’s all can be enough if it’s not going to be enough, if you’re doing just regular browsing it’s going to be plenty. Five-gig is actually an almost equivalent of eight hours of video streaming, so if you’re going to have straight video streaming for straight eight hours that will take up your five, but if you’re just doing emailing, some picture downloading, even some YouTube video watching, you’re going to be fine and that’s going to come close to hitting that directional.
A very animated with my hands today that even it come close to hitting that directional. $60.00 is definitely little bit on the expensive side, but you are getting a nice wireless internet anywhere you go, so people are always asking I will say even asking me, “What’s the advantage of the MiFi over a USB downloader or something that I can plug into my computer?” Well, events just are actually quite humor, so let me tell what they are.
First, no USB port, if you’re using a MacBook Air or netbook or a device of the few USB ports, those are precious, so this is done and take one. The next really big point, but as you can share with your friends if you’re out, if you’re college student for example and out at the library and they don’t have Internet there.
You can share this for five people and you can encrypt it, and you get full sort of router maintenance online. They included any other router whether it’s AirPort Extreme, a Linksys, a NetGear, whatever weird —you might have. You’ll get all the same options with the MiFi, so it’s quite handy in that regard.
In addition, one of the things I have mentioned in the previous video, use your iPhone or another phone essentially on Verizon’s networks since this is just Wi-Fi suck it in there EVDO Rib A network, you can use Skype or another client and conjunctionally you can call forwarding and you don’t have to really to go through AT&T or the other carriers. If you were with Sprint you don’t want to go to them or you’re with T-mobile and you don’t want to go with them, it’s really a nice option. You can use it with more than just a computer with the USB port if you use it with anything.
I’ve been thrilled with the MiFi. Most of the things that I get I used to review and I send back this I bought and I was quite happy to buy it. Now, I bought it, going back to the contract thing. I bought this without a contract, so I paid about $260.00 for it, but I can stock my $60.00 an I’m planning whenever I like I can put it on hold essentially if I say I'm not using it, I'm not going to be traveling for a while, you put it on hold. And if I’m going on vacation, going to somewhere where I’m going to need it, call Verizon and sat to say, “Hey, I want you turn it on.” And I will start paying my plan again, so I get a lot more freedom that I would if I took the subsidy.
For the device like this that runs to $250.00 I really can’t see why you would take the contract. In the long run it’s going to cost you much, much, much more. You ended saving about $110.00 of total if you do the contract and you’re stuck with two years. Now, the flexibility to stop service, suspend service and Verizon is on the process of putting out a 4G network, but this surely will come out within that two-year contract.
So, if that comes out all you’ve got to do is put this bag away a price list in your eBay, pick up the 4G version, i don’t have to worry about any early termination fees.
It’s quite nice and has a really —I think affordable way to go, so by deciding on that using it for a while I’m just going to suspend it and if I need it again call Verizon up and I’m good to go.
Only one to five scales, I highly recommend that the Verizon Wireless MiFi and I’ll give a very strong five. It does exactly what’s advertised and it does it extremely well. I can’t speak for the Sprint version, but it’s made by the same company and I will assume that if you get good Sprint service your experience will be just as positive.
So, guys I hope you enjoyed my sort of rumbling on the MiFi. If you want some more information you can check out Verizonwireless.com or Sprint.com if you want the Sprint version the same thing there is none a version currently up for AT&T or T-Mobile so that being on the GSM side.
