Cnet

An excellent companion thanks to its fast connection, nice set of features, and long-lasting battery

from Cnet

With long battery life, fast connections, and lots of useful features, the Verizon Jetpack 4G LTE MiFi 4620L by Novatel Wireless makes an excellent mobile Internet source for business users. It would be a great device for everyone if it came with unlimited or more-affordable data plans.

A solid LTE hotspot

Aside from the basic wireless hotspot functionality, Two features standout to me. First is the complete lack of any companion software to install.

Aside from the basic wireless hotspot functionality, Two features standout to me. First is the complete lack of any companion software to install. I remember using VZ Access Manager with older devices and there’s simply no need for this kind of application. The Novatel Wireless 4620L just powers up and works, as it should.

Second is the small display on the top of the unit. This is handy because the device has a dedicated phone number and can receive messages; you can scroll through and view them on the display. Plus you can see how many devices are connected, signal strength, and battery life without hitting an app or a web page. Novatel says the device can be used as a GPS over Wi-Fi, but I didn’t test the feature as all of my devices have GPS radios already.

Verizon sells the Jetpack for $49.99 with contract, $269.99 without. Is it a good deal? For those who don’t want to or can’t use their phone as an LTE hotspot, I’d say yes. The MiFi works well and has some great features. Because it can fall back to 3G, you can even use it as a hotspot in an area that lacks LTE coverage. For heavy users, I’d recommend the higher-capacity battery, but for occasional use, the included battery should work fine for most.

The best really just did get better

from GottaBeMobile

Users of the already excellent 4510L will most likely not find many reasons to upgrade to the 4620L unless they need to connect 10 devices simultaneously or global GSM roaming. That said, for new mobile hotspot users, the addition of some hardware navigation buttons and an on-board OLED display with its own UI provide a more refined experience that makes using the MiFi just that much easier. The MiFi 4620L remains one of the top gear in our arsenal and with the extended battery, you can work for even longer periods and not have to worry about being tethered to a power outlet...

Users of the already excellent 4510L will most likely not find many reasons to upgrade to the 4620L unless they need to connect 10 devices simultaneously or global GSM roaming. That said, for new mobile hotspot users, the addition of some hardware navigation buttons and an on-board OLED display with its own UI provide a more refined experience that makes using the MiFi just that much easier. The MiFi 4620L remains one of the top gear in our arsenal and with the extended battery, you can work for even longer periods and not have to worry about being tethered to a power outlet.

The only downside about the MiFi 4620L is that it’s so simple and easy to use that you just want to use it more. Coupled with Verizon’s fast mobile broadband LTE network, users will quickly realize that they’re burning through data quickly as the network and the device are both joys to use. Verizon offers two plans for the MiFi–a 5 GB per month plan for $50 or a 10 GB plan for $80. As you connect more devices and users to your MiFi, just be cautious of how much browsing, surfing, and Internet exploration you do so you don’t run into overages.

Offers fast 4G LTE speeds for up to 10 devices and can be used globally

from Laptop Magazine

Verizon Wireless' $49.99 Jetpack 4G LTE Mobile Hotspot MiFi 4620L delivers strong speeds, the ability to share with 10 devices and the added bonus of global capability for world travelers. We especially like the informative screen. Some may lament the lack of a microSD card slot, but if you're on Verizon, this is the mobile hotspot to get.

Extended battery is a champion

This is the best dedicated mobile hotspot I’ve used. I came into this review finding it difficult to believe that the 4620L would be worth an upgrade for owners of last year’s 4510L — both units look roughly the same and offer LTE compatibility. What more could you possibly need from a device this simple? Amazingly, though, the new model is indeed something that serious road warriors need to consider: no-fuss charging from any USB port makes it a worthwhile upgrade alone. Add the available extended battery and helpful display and you’ve got an easy winner.

The Verizon Jetpack 4G LTE Mobile Hotspot MiFi 4620L offers nearly all of the best features you could want in a cellular modem today. You get Verizon's fast 4G LTE data speeds, a great interactive status display, and world-ready connectivity. Verizon's capped data plans are pricey, and they prevent you from using this device as an alternative to your home Internet connection, but that's a problem you'll face on any of the four major carriers. The older Jetpack 4510L costs the same price, but it lacks the interactive status display and world support, and it doesn't transmit data while tethered via USB. So if you're looking for the best hotspot you can get on Verizon right now, the 4620L is your best bet, and our latest Editors' Choice.
