When space is at a premium consider the TV5 low profile antenna from Terk. Its low profile will allow it to fit in most entertainment centers. It can receive all channels from 2-69 and the adjustable amplifier can boost the signal. There is an input jack and a selector switch so you can attach a DVD player, VCR or game console.

The 6' cable allows you to use the antenna with rear projection TV's. You can also put it on top of the entertainment center where it will be out of sight. Either way the non-skid silicone base bad will keep it in place, and protect the surface it's sitting on.

  • newegg Low Profile Design The low-profile Terk TV5 amplified antenna can be placed in most television cabinets or on the top of any standard TV for seamless integration into your home. The non-skid base ensures maximum stability on any set-top.
  • newegg Low-noise Broadband Amplifier The integrated low-noise broadband amplifier features one-touch adjustment and selectable bypass to optimize signal reception for any location.
  • newegg Video Selector The built-in video selector allows for easy switching between broadcast TV and a connected video source without the hassle of disconnecting and reconnecting any wire.

1 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Low-profile design, included amplifier, aesthetics

Cons: Poor signal even for an indoor antenna, TERK support was very rude

Other Thoughts: YMMV, but I recommend seeking a better solution for rural usage.

The antenna was markedly inferior to a severely tattered outdoor directional antenna. May not have been much of an improvement over traditional low-end rabbit ears - but was not compared head-to-head. Returned promptly for refund.

2 out of 5 eggsNot Very Good

Pros: It works better than rabbit ears... I guess.

Cons: Stations are never stable, they go in and out. There is never a single adjustment that works for all channels. Constantly moving it is a pain.

Other Thoughts: I ended up putting the thing OUTSIDE to get any real channel stability, but I am still looking for something better. Not satisfied

1 out of 5 eggs

Pros: HDTV compatible, amplifier, video switch, nice cabling

Cons: The unit was either DOA, or did not fancy my location. The reception produced was about on par with standard ($5<) bunny ears.

The amplifier also did not appear to respond correctly to being adjusted or powered on/off, and it was rather obvious when unplugged from electricity.

Other Thoughts: The antenna is manufactured by Audiovox -- and they did not seem interested in providing any sort of compensation. Ended up RMAing it to Newegg. Consider a better antenna if you live over 15~20 miles from the broadcasting source.

5 out of 5 eggsAmazing

Pros: Excellent reception, strong amplifier, cheap

Cons: None noted (no problem with slip on plug)

Other Thoughts: Live in 2nd story condo with 50+ ft trees surrounding me (no dish avail). Local channels were 18 & 31mi away; antennaweb said NBC needing a 'red' directional. Didn't want to pay shipping twice so bought this and the Terk HDTVa. HDTVa received NBC and some PBS stations, but TV5 alone received all stations (incl. NBC) with perfect reception. Amazing for the $$. FYI live in W-S, NC and using Panasonic TH50PX77U.

5 out of 5 eggsgreat indoor antenna

Pros: Great indoor antenna. The selectable gain really improves the quality of the picture.

Cons: Slip on coax connector.

Other Thoughts: If you are looking for a cheap way to get HD OTA or if you cannot have an outdoor antenna then this is a good choice. I live in the suburbs of Dallas and get all the local channels in HD.

Pros: Superb antenna, gets a great picture.

Cons: The plug isn't the best. When I first purchased this antenna, I would have to fiddle with the wire for the antenna to receive power. A bit after a month, it just wouldn't work anymore.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat HDTV OTA Antenna!

Pros: Simple quality design, managable form-factor. Selectable gain to +40 dBm

Cons: 75&#937; F coaxial connector doesn't 'screw' onto the TV's female F connector... just snuggly clasps on.

Other Thoughts: With 40 dBm gain on both UHF/VHF this is a pretty impressive antenna. Out performs my outdoor antenna when placed in my attic. This is a good buy!
