I finally got to test these two amps side by side. I did just a real quick video that proves the gains. I'll sum it up and mention a couple other things that I didn't mention in the video as it is cold out and also was trying to keep it short in general. The WeBoost 4gx that I have has a metal case. The new design that I seen online, I can't tell. And mine isn't that old, so not sure why it's changed. The max amp is plastic. Both get warm. I keep a fan on the WeBoost. Neither one will burn you. I'm just anal about that stuff. The WeBoosts antenna and patch antenna isn't as high quality as the Max amp. If you're switching vehicles alot, that might come into play. I traveled nearly 200 miles to 3 different spots that normally at least put me into 3g, but no luck. And I'm near a couple of natinal forest areas. Both amps increase data speeds. I really wanted a true dead zone that one or the other wouldn't work in. But, I'll comment at another time when I have a friend with AT&T or something else besides Verizon. The price is a little cheaper with the WeBoost, but when you're talking 5-600 dollars, that's not really a whole lot. In my opinion, it really just comes down to the quality and who you like. I'll be the first to admit that I was really expecting the Max amp not to perform as claimed. I've had good success with the old direct connects but not the old wireless ones. Just me personally. Speed tests was really finicky. So much so that I didn't feel the need to video it. Every test is diferent. Even different days in the same spots. I really want to see which one will win in a dead zone. And even then, is a mile or so a big deal? Maybe. To some. Biggest thing is that I'm glad it's finally available. That's what got me upset the most in the past. We got storms to chase. Lol.
