Already used some of these kinds of units (not these exact ones) and there seems to be a problem with them where they must have a REALLY bad SWR or similar. Client node to me was using one and he is only about 400m away with a cantenna, was getting VERY VERY bad SNR, changed from a direct RP-SMA -> N plug as your link shows to a 30CM tail and the SNR became a hell of a lot better and even got a nice big jump in the signal too.

Not saying these will do the same thing, but you might wanna get a handful of units first to test before spending up big.

Cheers, Craig
