Big, but amazing reception

TERK HDTVi Directional Indoor UHF/VHF HDTV Antenna
TERK HDTVi Directional Indoor UHF/VHF HDTV Antenna

Pros: Gets AMAZING reception. I'm in the city (Washington, DC) with lots of buildings, etc., around me, and I can get more stations than I knew existed! Who knew that channel 9 also has a channel 9.1 that broadcasts in HDTV and a channel 9.2 that shows all news and weather all the time!?!? Funky, space-age design is fun.

Cons: The thing is BIG and takes up a lot of space. And the cable is stiff and thick, makes it hard to run to the TV.

Overall Review: Overall a good antenna.

great basic laptop

Pros: Got this as a cyber-Monday deal. Definitely worth the low low price and free shipping. Great for what I need it for: surfing the web, e-mail, and word processing. Also like the full-sized keyboard and separate number pad.

Cons: Sometimes when coming out of hibernating mode, it locks up for about 10 seconds, but then it works just fine. Also the touch pad seems overly sensitive and I keep on accidentally setting it off. I'm sure there's some way to adjust that, but I'm too lazy to figure it out.

Overall Review: Love the exterior design/texture. It's not exactly small or lightweight, so it's not so good if you're looking for something easily portable. Not a gamer at all, so I can't speak to that. But for the cyber Monday price, it was a great find.

Awesome TV

26" 720p LCD HDTV
26" 720p LCD HDTV

Pros: Crystal clear, sharp pictures. No dead pixels. Sleek design. Great sound. Brightness automatically adjusts according to brightness of the room.

Cons: Not the cheapest HDTV on the block, but more than made up in quality. Fixed stand doesn't swivel, tilt, etc.

Overall Review: I do not have cable and am using an antenna to pick up local broadcasts. Both analog and digital channels come in great (I had know idea there were so many digital stations in my broadcast area! (Washington, DC)). Even the analog channels look good -- relatively sharp, nice colors, no ghosting to speak of. And this is a good size (26") for a small apartment's living room. Anything bigger would overwhelm the room.
