4 out of 5 eggsplaced in the attic

Pros: The antenna works very well. Ended up getting good reception that I was able to find a position that works for all the Orlando area channels. I also fed the second output back into the existing TV cable that was from the cable company. Made that run the input of the splitter outside and was able to run 2 additional TV's in 2 other rooms.

Cons: Noticed a very minor quality control issue with one of the screws used to attach the antenna to the base not seated correctly. The remote is very cheap but it works. The red LED indicating power is a bit obtrusive, to bright. I may cover it with something.

Other Thoughts: For the money, I'd say this is a pretty good product.

1 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Worked great for one week after installation.
Not sure it is well enough built for Idaho winds.

Cons: Quit working after one week. Will not amplify will not rotate.
Yellow light remains on in inside control. Have not been able to get it to work even breifly. Have not tried a hammer.... yet.

3 out of 5 eggsCut the cord

Pros: Came in fast from Newegg Flash and a great price if it worked.

Cons: It came in with the coax cut at the main junction. THe parts sheet shows a coax already attached to the main junction box, and another coax 1 each. The only coax in the box was the one attached to the main junction which was cut from the factory.

Other Thoughts: I wanted to cut the cable bill by cutting THAT cable, not get an antenna with a cut cable. I then realized that it was only covered by HisGadget with a restocking fee etc. So I emailed the company from the email on the specs page asking what they were going to do about the cut main coax.
