1 out of 5 eggsDOA

Pros: Cheap.

Cons: Cheap. Seems like an expensive way to spread garbage around to different and exotic landfills.

Other Thoughts: This cable was dead on arrival. I only paid $4.95 for it, so it's not worth the time and hassle of RMAing it when I can (and did) just go buy one at a local store.

1 out of 5 eggs42XG HDTV

Pros: impressive looking, easy to assemble

Cons: Plastic parts on the reflector pannels are very thin and cheap, they were cracked out of the box. The performance was no better than my 14 year old VHF/UHF antenna that has survived 4 hurricans.

Other Thoughts: Would not recomend this to others.

3 out of 5 eggsnot bad, but not great

Pros: small, light. I use this antenna for stations closer 20 miles or less.

Cons: not as good as my DB8 multi-directional antenna. Able to get more channels with my DB8.

Other Thoughts: i was only able to get 56% signal strength from 30 miles away, but to be fair there is a hill side that im trying to get the signal though.

5 out of 5 eggsFree HD is sweet :)

Pros: Was very easy to put together and mount on the outside of my deck off my bedroom. Doesn't look too ugly out there either. Picks up everything in crystal clear HD in Mesa where I'm at from about 18 miles away from the towers on South Mountain in Phoenix, AZ.

Cons: Having to run a seperate cable.

Other Thoughts: Would buy again and recommend to anyone wanting an HD antenna.
