1 out of 5 eggshorrid

Pros: none

Cons: Found 8 channels comepletely grainy and static.(I am in the city close to broadcasting) If you like salt and pepper wars this is for you.
B.B. salesman claimed this would work for ABC HD and all other channels in my valley - UHM NO

Other Thoughts: I live in the city. Have a sweet 50 inch sony sxrd 1080p w/ built in ATSC/NTSC tuner. Bought this to watch HD ABC only because I have not ordered another Cable box for this TV yet. Plugged it in for 5 minutes new it was not what I was looking for. Returning this second, I will have to watch the LOST season finale on my other tv non HD :(.

Received not even 1 channel clearly, much less any hdtv channels.

Other Thoughts: I'm gonna try a Terk.

1 out of 5 eggsDon't waste your money

Pros: Unamplified reception is average.

Cons: When the amplification is turned on the digital signal becomes completely unusable. Signal strength would drop from 80% to 20% even when the amplification was on at very low levels.

Other Thoughts: I have used a 10db amplified RCA antenna with much better results. This model's noise reduction capabilities must be severly limited.

1 out of 5 eggsSignal destroyer

Pros: Comes with all the wires you need.

Cons: The signal amplification feature on this antenna destroyed every single channel that I turned it on for. Channels which showed a 70% signal strength without the amplifier turned on could not even be displayed with the amplifier on at any level. With the amplifier off, the signal strength from rabbit ears alone was equivalent to the ten dollar antenna I had hooked up previously.

Other Thoughts: Look elsewhere for a TV antenna. I certainly am.

3 out of 5 eggsNot bad, not great.

Pros: The antenna is easy to use and setup. After all, it's an antenna. It's amplified, so it does need an extra outlet. It's compact, very non-obtrusive, adjustable gain works pretty well.

Cons: It takes a lot of adjustment to find the right spot for the perfect signal. Even when you think it's perfectly adjusted, there are still occasional skips and pauses in the signal. Extremely sensitive to weather conditions, so if you live somewhere that gets a lot of rain/storms like I do, you might want to reconsider. I'm actually returning this for a Terk.
