5 out of 5 eggs Great results at a great price 09/12/2008

This review is from: Winegard HD7210 PLATINUM SERIES High Definition VHF/UHF Antenna

Pros: Well made. Works about as expected.

Cons: Neither Newegg nor the manufacturer's site display a reception color wheel to indicate its effectiveness.

Other Thoughts: I'm getting all the stations (7 digital, 1 analog) to be expected, per All about 26 miles away. Antenna is installed 1 ft. above the rafters, in my attic. I don't know if performance will vary with the seasons. I did see a few dropouts during a rain/lightning storm.

I was a bit worried, at first: The color wheel on the box shows YELLOW, GREEN, LT. GREEN. Antennaweb indicates that 3 of my broadcasters (5 of my channels) are actually RED and BLUE for reception, but they look good. In fact, the High Def prime-time, morning show and late show broadcasts are spectacular. If you have never paid for High Def. cable or satellite service, you may be as surprised as I was at the visual.

I do have one problem, for which I don't blame the antenna. My PBS station (2 of my channels) is located 102 degrees off from the other stations. I get very good images from them most of the time. But, also get occasional lines of noise and millisecond dropouts. Sometimes even major drops.

Pros: Incredibly quiet. Well, my other hardware is fairly old, but this is the quietest drive I've had, including a couple of notebooks. It might even be silent; can't be sure because any noise is covered by the faint whisper of the fan on my Shuttle XPC SD11G5 Pentium M setup.

Cons: None.

Other Thoughts: I've been very satisfied with 10 or 12 WD drives over the years.

Pros: It's quiet and cool. I finally have the machine I had hoped for when I built my previous Shuttle (SS40G with Athlon 2100) 6 years ago. With the Pentium M 750 CPU and 2GB RAM, it's a little faster than the older machine. Went together easily. I like the sturdy hold-down screws and foam gasket of the heat sink. I had purchased a CPU used on The auction site, and had random crashes. The guy honored his warranty and took it back. The second, from another vendor, was perfect. Both were $50 + $6 or $ten shipping, with Buy it Now. I see some for cheaper, but not as good feedback. I also see some purportedly new CPUs at sky high prices. First box without a trace of MS Windows. Running PCLinuxOS 2007 primarily, with Fedora 7 and Puppy 2.17 also installed. Very minor installation glitch is that most installs don't properly set the volume control for the Front speaker channel of the 7.1 hardware, and requires an adjustment.

Cons: The CD/DVD door cover is a bit fiddly to set up.
