Pros: I am the Systems Admin for a large Auto Mall and one of the building's is getting renovated so we had to move the managers to their new location. This location happens to be in the exact middle of the building so I had to find another solution to run the Sirius Antenna. I saw this and realized it uses normal RG-6 cable (like Cable TV). I picked up a new roll of wire and some connectors had the entire cable run done within the hour. It says in the manual that it can't be any longer than a 150ft run, so make sure you measure where it's going to go first. There is a harness that will connect your RG-6 to you standard Sirius Antenna jack.
Setting up the antenna is one of the easiest thing's you can do. Follow the included U.S. map to point it in the right direction and attach it to a pole (like we did) or you can also mount in flush, the base supports both methods. Its easier if you do your own cable then crimp the ends, that way you can get it perfect than cut it down to size and make it look nice. You can also use pre-made cables, but you might have too much left over. There's a weather proof cover for the outdoor connections along with everything you need. the actual hooking it up took only minutes.
Cons: I can't think of anything
Other Thoughts: If you are looking for a sturdy antenna for your home or office, you need to look at this. We are getting full signal with no audio artifacts.

Pros: Versatile, has mobile/home jerk & run package hook-up. Unit overheats when mobile FM transmitter is on and it will shut-down the receiver. I will return to Sirius under warranty. Do not recommend this. Seems all have overheating issues...stay away...
Cons: Overheating...all seem to have this issue...

Pros: Love the new plug and play satellite receiver! Have had XM since the beginning and this is my 4th XM receiver. Glad I bought the new stereo that has the plugin for this unit.Don't have the hassle of finding a clear FM frequency as this is a direct link.Wish my company truck could use it as I am a OTR trucker.Easy installation and has 3 free months of service.Great Product!
Cons: Not really a con for me as a longtime XM subscriber but is XM only,not for Sirius.Do your research!
Other Thoughts: Very small and fits behind radio very easily and just plug it in.

Pros: Easy to install. Comes with a couple different options for mounting.
Cons: None yet.
Other Thoughts: Only thing I noticed right away - instead of using plastic for the mounting bracket for holding the cradle metal would be nice. The plastic one feels cheap and feels like it would break really easy.
