Antennas Direct DB2 Multi-Directional HDTV Antenna
  • neweggOwned For: less than 1 day

4 out of 5 eggs Very nice 04/13/2010

This review is from: Antennas Direct DB2 Multi-Directional HDTV Antenna

Pros: I'm using this antenna indoors. After plugging it in and spending some time finding the optimal place to put it in my apartment, I got all the local HD channels.

Cons: It's ugly. It's not too big though, about 1 foot square and 4 inches deep. Documentation is bare-bones, but it's simple to put together.

Other Thoughts: From a south-facing apartment in downtown Toronto with no line-of site to any transmitters (there are buildings in the way), I get all of the local channels and one from Hamilton. No channels from Buffalo, unfortunately. This antenna is better than two others I tried, a Silver Sensor and a flying saucer-style antenna.

Pros: Fits into a plain old PCI slot. Yes, PCI, not PCI-express. Nice for older motherboards.
Has VDPAU support for linux machines. This means that you get hardware encoding on XBMC-Live, for those who are interested. It ran 1080p video without a hiccup with my P4 3.0 ghz processor.

Cons: The fan is tiny and ridiculously loud. It sounds like a little chainsaw. I use this in a home theatre PC and it totally ruins it. It's about as loud as an electric razor. Also, the fan is positioned on the card in a way that I don't think many 3rd party GPU heat sinks will fit. Big disappointment.

Other Thoughts: New egg was great, as always
