5 out of 5 eggsJust what I was looking for!

Pros: Well it works like a champ! After moving into a new place where I couldn't get a clear line of sight for a satellite and not wanting to ever go back to cable, I opted to go the Roku route. The only snag was the whole local channel thing. I installed this in my attic and it picked up all the local HD channels and I haven't had a single issue with it. Coupled with a Harmony remote, switching between say SlingTV and the antenna is fast and you almost forget that this isn't part of a cable package.

Cons: None that I can think of.

4 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Exterior is aesthetically pleasing. Hook up is a no brainer.

Cons: I pickup no more on it than a clear view or other cheaper brand and something my other antennas do not do as this one is doing is dropping signals or freezing in the middle of a broadcast. Where I live is near the transmission towers so I pick up 28 channels.

Other Thoughts: My last Antenna which I use downstairs was a Radio Shack Antenna which looks much like the Terk but costs less and picks up the same channels but does not drop signals or freeze frame. Maybe I received a lemon. Maybe not. Research your options and make an educated purchase. I do hope my review helps.

5 out of 5 eggsWorks Great!

Pros: Gets over 100 Channels
Nice, sleek look

Cons: None that I can think of right now

Other Thoughts: This works great! I live in a big city and get over 100 channels. Granted, the majority of them are in languages I don't understand, but I get all the major channels in HD and a lot of other English speaking channels - All for FREE!
Between this and streaming video, it's "Goodbye cable!"

4 out of 5 eggsNice Design and Reception

Pros: This antenna has a sleek design that makes the hardware not standout inside the house. It also gets great reception.

Cons: Kind of flimsy and easy to break if it falls.

4 out of 5 eggsGood , but not Great

Pros: Works as advertised . I was able to receive channels with little to no interference. It doesn't have an annoying light to show that it is on.

Cons: My gripe is that it does take some fine tuning to get some stations. I do not like the fact that i have rotate the antenna 90 degrees to receive certain channels. The screws for the stand were a pain to screw in. It is on the pricey side.

Other Thoughts: Overall I'm satisfied with my purchase.

5 out of 5 eggsGood result

Pros: Did something unusual - I read the directions because I've had limited success with antennas. Tried several modes & all worked as one would hope:
(1) straight into the atsc tuner (w/o Amplifier) & picked up 32 digital stations. Expected this because we're within 15 miles of towers.
(2) Moved to second floor on top of a wood bookcase (to get away from the aluminum siding). TV in basement picked up 4 channels (a very long run). No shock there.
(3) Kept it on the second floor & connected up the amp (didn't plug it in) No Channels. again, expected.
(4) Plugged in the amp. & received 32 channels.
(5) Plugged the amplified antenna signal into my video distribution setup. 34 channels on each HDTV. Great pic & sound.

Cons: I would have liked to see each of the coax cables about 2 ft. longer. I had to add another 3 ft. coax.

Other Thoughts: I'm putting in one for my mom's apartment - turns out she has cable only so she can watch the local channels. I don;t know if the amplifier will be needed, but it is nice to have it if she does.

5 out of 5 eggsGood Stuff

Pros: WOW this antenna works great. Picked up 30+ local channels in West Valley of Phoenix. Channel CBS-FOX-ABC-ION-weather and local news. I watched Survivor, American Idols, Revenge, Modern Family, Burned Notice, Ghost Whisper and many more good shows. All that for free with no monthly payments to the Cable company. The Picture is crystal clear.

Cons: none

Other Thoughts: I’m very impressed. I just left the Antena standing behind the TV on the furniture top.

5 out of 5 eggsTERK Antennae

Pros: Installed the antenna over the weekend and have excellent reception. NBC, ABC & CBS affiliates 35 miles away-perfect reception. Received other channels as far as 50 miles away, that I was unable to pickup with a Tenna rotor and an outdoor antenna. Easy installation. Installed it on 2 x 8 installed between trusses in attic.

Cons: Spent at least 8 hours drilling holes and fishing coax cable through the wall cavity from the attic to the basement. Where is wireless when you need it?

Other Thoughts: I hope this product is better than Sprint Override that only worked they way it is promoted for two months.

4 out of 5 eggsConvenient Antenna

Pros: Very Convenient Antenna, can detect signals from all around without me standing up and rotating the rings as in the traditional Rabbit/Loop or directional Antennas. Walking around will not destroy the signal. Where as in traditional antennas, walking around can reflect/defect the directional signal causing TV blackouts (digital cliff).

Cons: Amplifier Gain is not as strong as traditional Rabbit/Loop (15-30 dB typical). So don't expect great results if you live far away (20+ Miles) from broadcast towers. Although the trade-off with this one is that it can pick up a wider range of channels under one tune (scan). With the rabbit ears, you needed to focus the direction for maximum signal per channel (IE, stronger signal for ABC but lose NBC channel) so multiple tunes are required.

Needs better Price Justification, hehehe...

Other Thoughts: From apartment in NYC (~8 miles from broadcast), 3rd Floor of a 10-Floor Building.
