Rating + 5Rating + 5Rating + 5Rating + 5Rating + 5 Wonderful Antenna For Price
Pros: Excellent antenna for the price, picks up around 40 channels (the broadcast stations are approximately 30 miles from my house), super easy to install, takes in both UHF and VHF signals, and did I mention all this for under 20 dollars.
Cons: The only con is that they send an RG59 cable instead of RG60, but that is not enough to deduct an egg.

Rating + 5Rating + 5Rating + 5Rating + 5Rating + 5 ATSC External Tuner - Turn a monitor into a Televsion
Pros: Easy to use.
Good Picture quality over HDMI.
Tuner is strong enough for city I live in.
Several Output resolution options.
Media player opens several types of files, including MKV.
Recorder actually works.
$35.oo for a external HD tuner... Fantastic!
Cons: CC functionality is 50/50.
Media player can't access subtitles.
No RGB component output. Grrr...
Recorder scheduling is unwieldy.
Device is picky about USB thumbs drives will work best.
Other Thoughts: If serious about recording, use a 2.5" SATA to USB external hard drive with no less than 8MB of cache. Recording to thumbs drives is iffy at best. An expensive 16GB SanDisk sputters like crazy, but a cheapy 8GB no name thumb drive works like greased lighting. Go figure.

Rating + 2Rating + 2Rating + 2Rating + 2Rating + 2 Not good - tuner is cheap
Pros: The idea is good... on paper. Looks promising...
Cons: This unit does not work properly. My HDTV built-in tuner, with a good antenna, picks ip 4 hd channels in downtown Quebec.

I wanted to use this box for integration with a an audio video receiver... but this converter, ued with the same antenna, only picks one channel!

So the built-in tuner is even cheaper and worse than the built-in tv tuner!

What's the purpose of the box then? It need to do one thing properly: scan channels and manage them. And it fails on that!

Really dissapointed by the product.

A great word though on Newegg, who agreed to issue a store credit considering the total disapointement. Nice customer service! But the product is still useless, unless you have exceptionnal antenna reception...

Rating + 1Rating + 1Rating + 1Rating + 1Rating + 1 Piece of junk - tuner is really bad
Pros: None
Cons: This is useless! This item is supposed to be a digital tuner, but the built-in tuner is of extremely low quality. It is unable to properly scan channels, and great signals are not even considered by the device. The built-in digital tuner of my tv picks up 4 hd channels, perfect quality, even with a cheap antenna. This homeworx? It picks one! And quality is low... Bottom line: this device, poorly built, feels cheap, and is unable to do properly its only function. Avoid at all cost. And Newegg does not even offer refund for this... Only offers really pricey return with shipping at my expense. A real disappointment.

Rating + 4Rating + 4Rating + 4Rating + 4Rating + 4 v8 works well
Pros: small footprint, good price, good tuner -- the physical characteristics distinguishing the v8 is ac line cord and plug (v9 is external 5v power supply adapter, aka wall wart) -- tuner picks up more stations than fairly new, several year old, hdtv
Cons: a few idiosyncrasies that can be worked around easily enough -- works better for me to use splitter to tv than to use rf loop-thru to feed tv, etc
Other Thoughts: this is a good value for pausing live tv or time shifting, with original quality video capture, which can be played back on tv, pc, or tablet from usb drive. the newest version that is shipping is v9, which has significant problems -- see separate review

Categories > TV Antennas & Accessories > RCA > RCA ANT1650 Indoor Digital Superior Flat Antenna With Removable Amplifier

Rating + 1Rating + 1Rating + 1Rating + 1Rating + 1 Terrible
Pros: It's an antenna.
Cons: For costing 40+ dollars it does not do its job. The amplifier is a joke, it requires a power source and it does not even get solid channel signals. Do not waste your money on this piece of junk.

Pros: RELIABLE.
Easy to mount.
Cons: Big and bulky
Other Thoughts: Wouldn't go any other route, this thing works the best out of all the antennas we've dealt with.

Rating + 1Rating + 1Rating + 1Rating + 1Rating + 1 newest new version is broken
Pros: small footprint, inexpensive, good tuner, low power use
Cons: newest new version thinks a week is 12 days long and stops recording far short of the scheduled end time. the older new version that was being shipped just a few weeks ago was working properly. from what i have read, it seems like these have the firmware version shipped by a different brand. unsuitable for scheduled recording.
Other Thoughts: i have sent an email to mediasonic tech support. if they cannot send new firmware to fix, i will have to contact newegg for a return/refund. unfit for purpose -- too light to make a doorstop or bookend.

Categories > TV Antennas & Accessories > Mediasonic > Mediasonic HomeWorX HW110AN ATSC Series Digital Flat Antenna

Rating + 5Rating + 5Rating + 5Rating + 5Rating + 5 Works Great for me
Pros: Very inexpensive, fast new egg shipping, does what it says it will do.
I went from zero channels to 28 channels living about 10 mi south of St. Louis MO. I never knew there were that many local channels UVerse only gives 12....goodbye uverse.
Cons: The suction cup base does not work well, get a piece of double sided tape on the suction cut and save yourself the time and frustration of it falling off. It's cheap enough and works well enough that I did not detract an egg, I read the reviews and expected it to be not so great of a mount.
Other Thoughts: After you install this on a digital TV do an auto scan for channels. Don't expect this to work on an analog TV as it is not designed for that, it picks up analog signals for a Digital TV.
If you live more than 20-25 miles from any transmitters this is too small it is roughly 4.5 x 8.5 inches and does not have the surface area to pick up far away weak signals
