5 out of 5 eggsGreat product

Pros: So we came to an epiphany and realized that we are paying $60 per month for our cable subscription when we watched only 2 channels. I installed this antenna and was amazed to discover 37 viewable channels, some of which I did not know existed in my area. When the antenna was finally mounted, all pictures were crisp, static free, pixel free, flicker free...no different than my cables pictures. I have not experienced an electrical storm yet, so cannot comment there. I wired the coaxial cables into my house's smart box and was able to extend the antenna's use to two other TVs in the house. This was an extra unthought of bonus when I wanted to try this out.

Cons: Whether you mount it on a window or with an intervening wall seems to make a difference in channel pickup. This is expected given the nature of EM transmission, but expect this to be best used over a window.

Other Thoughts: This is a directional antenna, so you do have to find a good spot to mount it. This means that you may have to choose one station vs another if the signals are coming from different directions.

5 out of 5 eggsSuperior Product

Pros: easy to install, good signal reception from distance, good instructions.

Cons: None so far. I bought this as a refurb, so didn't know about the condition of the product or iinclusion of nstructions. There was nothing to worry about, they were both good.

Other Thoughts: I planned some time to test the installation of this product and got good results. I did temporary installs in 5 different windows facing the general direction of two different cities we are between. We live halfway between San Antonio and Austin, Texas. Even using expensive rabbit ears, we were unable to get any signal from either set of stations.

This unit surprised me in how easy it was to test in the different locations and how well it brought in signals. The fun part is that in the window I ended up using, we get 37 digital signals using this and most are high quality High Def.

Since losing Aereo for local channels, we thought that was it, but with this flat panel powered antenna brings them in better than Aereo did. More clarity, no buffering. Just picture.

1 out of 5 eggsIt is just as good as a coat hanger

Pros: Disappointed is the word.

Cons: It performed as well as rabbit ears and they were cheap.
No improvement. I'm in the city, Jacksonville and Florida is very flat. I'm two dozen miles from city transmitters. Move to 2nd floor and no help.
Disappointed! Kept trying different places, rooms, walls, windows etc. Like this on all seven stations the TV could scan.
Should have returned it but waited too long with diminishing hope.

Other Thoughts: The power cord is very short and had to add extension to reach AC when used in any TV cabinet..
Wasted time trying to make it work. I would pull in local stations and they would be good for few seconds and run raster interference lines for video and then be good for a few minutes and repeat,etc. Tried several TVs.

5 out of 5 eggsGood Antenna

Pros: Lightweight, slim profile, good reception, great price. HD channel quality is excellent as far as I can tell.

Cons: One of the cables it came with had some minor wear and scuff marks but this is a refurbished item so no big deal.

Other Thoughts: Hooked it up and stuck it to the wall above my tv which is an exterior wall. Ran the channel scan on my tv and got 12 channels without the power adapter. Plugged in the power adapter and got 39 channels. A few channels have spotty connections but most are crystal clear.
Obviously the channels you get will vary by location, but I checked the broadcast map for my area and I'm getting everything I should be and then some. I'm very pleased considering I havn't even experimented with antenna placement.
