Pros: This antenna is light in weight and easy to assemble. I have been using this antenna since February, and have made several modifications to the original installation. It is mounted to the side of my house approximately 15 feet from the ground, originally I had installed a 10 foot section of pipe to the antenna. With this configuration I was able to pull 22 TV stations. I live in Harrington Delaware which is approximately 70 line of sight miles from Philadelphia and approximately 30 miles from Salisbury Maryland. We are approximately 65 miles from Baltimore. Using the described configuration all the channels were quite clear and sharp, they appeared as good or better than my Comcast signal. When the antenna was pointed to Philadelphia I could still pull the Salisbury stations from the backside of the antenna with clear and acceptable pictures. But pointed toward Salisbury I cannot pull Philadelphia.
This weekend I modified the configuration by including a vintage archer rotor. We also raised the antenna approximately 7 more feet. At this new heights I pull 51 channels all are perfectly clear and sharp. I installed the archer rotor because of the limitations of the built-in antenna rotor.
Cons: The main disadvantage of this antenna combination is the rotor controls. The rotor will not reverse until it travels to its turnaround limits and then it will drive back the opposite direction. This makes it extremely difficult to accurately point the antenna to the television transmitting antenna. The way I did it was with someone holding the control button while I was outside with my compass trying to get the bearing to the transmitter. Fortunately here in Harrington all the TV transmitting antennas are in a relatively closely packed area so you just have to get close to receive all the channels from that area.
The second problem I found was when I did the initial installation I could always received 12 channels, when I tried the second output from the amplifier I received 22 channels. When I called tech support they told me it was normal for their amplifiers to have two different strength outputs.
Other Thoughts: My neighbor has purchased a similar antenna from this vendor and we install the last week. Is only up 10 feet above his roof line but he still pulls 22 TV stations.
I would recommend these antennas to any one who would like to try over the air TV reception.
Pros: I use my Stylus to keep the smudges off my screen. This one works well but is little hard to glide over the screen. Guess it has to do with the rubber tip. I've used many others and this one is the same as they are. At this price I would recommend it to people that like to use a stylus.

Pros: One of the most useful features of this endoscope is the 45 feet long cable, this will allow you to see much further into the areas that you are searching. I've only use the scope twice but it provided me with good enough resolution to see what I needed.
Cons: The only real drawback is low resolution of the video. Though it is low is still usable for most inspections.
Other Thoughts: Lastly and the reason for this review, when I went to use this scope after nearly a year from the purchase date I found the drivers and utility program CD was blank. I sent an email to the company, Imagestore, that I had purchases ths scope from. They immediately, same evening replied with the site addresses for the missing setup manual, drivers and utility program to use the borescope. This is an excellent example of customer service.READ FULL REVIEW
