1 out of 5 eggsWorse than useless

Pros: [ Since this product is out of stock, this will be a brief review as probably no one will ever need it. ]

None.

Cons: Signal is worse with the preamp connected than it is without the preamp.

This isn't my first rodeo -- I installed it correctly.

5 out of 5 eggsPerfect for HDTV Reception

Pros: I have an attic antenna for picking up analog TV, it wasn't a perfect picture but okay. With the digital TV switch I had slight signal issues. One channel wouldn't come in anymore and two others would lose signal every 30 seconds for a split second. It now makes every signal come in well enough to not lose signal while watching!

Cons: It works so well I get all 6 of the low powered religious channels... For some that might be a good thing, but it is just more channels I have to manually delete in the channel list.

Other Thoughts: I'm about 30 miles from the TV towers and have my antenna aimed correctly and still had tiny issues. I have 3 TVs split off of it and one FM radio and it isn't too much or too little amplification. It's just right!

You can also turn off the FM trap so that you get in great FM radio signals too! I love it.

5 out of 5 eggsDoes what it says

Pros: I live 30 miles south of Cleveland OH in heavily wooded and hilly area. This pre-amp doubled the number of stations that I receive. Able to get Cleveland, Akron, and Mansfield stations now. Good-bye cable bill! So far no problems, I would highly recommend this product.

Cons: weather boots for cables are difficult to work with

Other Thoughts: Easy set-up (other than weather boots), order arrived in 3 days
