Thumbs up for Verizon's Samsung 4G LTE Mobile Hotspot

Verizon's Samsung 4G LTE Mobile Hotspot has received some criticism for not providing more functionality.
CNET called it "fast, not so furious" because — unlike Sprint's MiFi 4082 3G/4G Mobile Hotspot or T-Mobile's 4G Mobile Hotspot ZTE MF61 — it doesn't support such features as GPS, Wi-Fi Protected Setup, an external antenna port, microSD slot for network storage.
But let's simplify this a bit.
I got this demo device thinking I wouldn't really have much use for it, i.e. would have trouble testing it.
In recent trips to Boston; Providence, R.I.; and the Los Angeles area, I put this little device to the test. And, ya know what? It did what I needed to do: It gave me the Internet.
In fact, it some cases it saved the day when otherwise there was no connection to be had or a hotel or other location was charging for it.
So, yes, it might be simple, but it does the trick.
