I agree that doesn't look good for an item that I have had very good luck with. However, by the dates, it does look like they must have had a cable quality problem in later units. But that doesn't reflect my experiences with 5 units at all. I have had one on a house for over 2 years and another on a house for just 2 years and three on RV's, one for over two years and the other two have left my observation. The ones on the houses are to augment and back up cable systems.
In looking at reviews I always figure that the unhappy customers are much more apt to send in a bad review than a happy customer a good review so I always read the content of negative reviews carefully so as to be able to weigh them. I didn't do any reviews on the ones I bought, they work and that was great. Had I reviewed them that would have been 5 more 5 star reviews.
Again, it's an advantage if an item is easy to return, either because a unit is defective or if the entire product isn't well designed.
