Zenith VN1ANTA20 Indoor Amplified TV Antenna-AmerTac
Average at best
This review is from: Zenith VN1ANTA20 Indoor Amplified TV Antenna
Pros: It works OK
Cons: Just as good as standard rabbit ears. It seems the amplifier does a poor job at filtering the signal noise. So, I am still having problems with the same channels I had problems with before. My $7.00 plain rabbit ears work just as good. So, buyers beware. You might be better off getting a plain antenna, or go expensive if you need amplification due to the area you live in.
Other Thoughts: Trust me, there is no magical solution to this problem. If you need an amplified antenna, you need one that filters out the noise as well or you will amplify the noise along with the signal and might still run into the same problem with signal quality. These types of antennas are often expensive. However, if you really think about it, it is not more expensive than a perpetual payment to the cable company. The problem is doing your homework to buy a product that will work for you. If you can, outdoor antennas is really the way to go. Even better, one that you could rotate to orient the antenna in the direction of the transmitter for the channel you are trying to tune in. That said, this is not always possible. Therefore, talk to people in your area, like your neighbors. Buy something that worked for them. If not, read reviews... plenty of them. If you do not live in a "green" area, this antenna IS NOT for you. If you live in a "green" area, this might work, but only average.
