      Pleasantly Surprised

      I am quite pleased with the performance of this antenna. I have tried multiple internal and external/internal TV antennas including the Antennas Direct Clearstream 4V (whose retail price is 10X the price of this one!). To date, this is among the best performing antennas I have tried In fact, the VHF reception with this antenna is the best of any I have tried (including the far more expensive Clearstream antenna). Indoors, on the ground floor level of my house with the antenna positioned in a window (with blinds closed) behind my TV, I am able to receive multiple watchable digital stations. At times, I am able to get most of the UHF band digital TV stations available in the DC metro area including the Maryland PBS station. Also, depending on antenna position and adjustment of the VHF (rabbit ears) component of this antenna I can get either of the two VHF stations but not both simultaneously (i.e. I can get Channel 9 broadcast stations if angled and aligned properly but must realign and raise/lower the VHF element (rabbit ears) and rescan with my TV to get the Channel 7 broadcast stations (losing Channel 9 stations when I do)). As with all Over The Air (OTA) TV Antennas, this antenna appears to be impacted by atmospheric conditions so that depending on cloud cover and time of day, my reception degrades or improves. Still, I get a selection of watchable stations at any time (just not all of them). Given that I got this on a Best Buy Deal of the Day for under $10, I find it very impressive for the price. Unfortunately, reception with this antenna is still not sufficient for me to cut the cable (yet!) which is why I only gave it 4 stars. Still, I would recommend it to anyone wanting to have a back up option for the rare instances when cable is out so they have something to watch. Also, at least for Cox cable customers in the DC metro area, it provides access to several local stations that are not available through Cox (at least for the lowest cost Cox TV option). These include at least two of the Channel 14 stations, at least one of the Channel 7 stations and at least one of the Channel 66 stations,

      We cut the cable last spring and haven't missed TV, since we can watch online. But now we want to watch football on local channels, so I reviewed several antennas and came across this one. Yes, it's inexpensive (cheap), but BB customer service said to keep the box in case we wanted to return it. No hassles and they didn't try to push us to a more expensive item. FYI: We live in a metropolitan city of 400,000 with no mountains around us. We have a 2011 model Vizio HDTV and the antenna set-up took less than 10 minutes. Put the antenna together in a snap, screwed the coaxial cable that comes with the antenna into the TV, scanned the channels and we got 22 of them, including ABC, CBS, NBC, three PBS channels and a lot of others that come in clear and crisp Not sure how it would work in your area, but it is worth trying. Keep the box if you're worried about having to return it. We are completely satisfied with this purchase and highly recommend the product for those who don't need 200+ channels of mostly unwatchable cable shows.

      Does what it's supposed to do and does it well

      I had just bought a 40" LG TV from Best Buy and I knew I didn't want to pay for cable so before I went to pick-up my TV I looked for an antenna and went through all the reviews of ones in my price range. I came across this antenna on sale for $9.99 and was doubtful but the reviews were as good as those for much higher priced antennas. I needed something to enable me to watch my new TV when I got it home so I gladly took a $10 chance and headed home with my new TV and antenna. I connected the antenna and plugged in the TV and started the station scan during setup. After it was finished I was surprised to have well over 30 stations. The best local stations were crystal clear and with a little adjustment of the antenna position I was getting all the stations that were entered during the scan. This was my first flat screen TV and for $10 compared to the price of cable I was more than happy with all the channels this small inexpensive rabbit-ear style antenna received. About a week later I rescanned the channels and was surprised to find several new channels were now added. I plan to eventually purchase an outdoor HDTV antenna but for the meantime I am more than happy with the capabilities of this inexpensive alternative to overpriced cable. If you want something inexpensive and basic that does the job then you won't be disappointed with this product. I was delighted.

      We purchased this antenna for the kitchen TV rather than rent a set-top box from TDS for $3.50 a month (given that we bought an open box for $9.00, this antenna will pay for itself in 3 months). All we were hoping for were a few basic channels and a network or two so we could watch the news. Placement is critical. Trying it in the guest bedroom sitting next to the TV we picked up 4 channels. In our exercise room sitting in the west window facing the transmission towers, we picked up 10-16 channels. Sitting on the kitchen counter next to the TV, we picked up 16 channels. But in the west-facing kitchen window we picked up 24 channels (strange!), including ABC, CBS, NBC, PBS, and channels we didn't even know existed. No FOX though. There's definitely trial and error involved when it comes to placement of the antenna. Reception is far from perfect. Most days we have a wide choice of channels with good reception; other days several of them are pixelated and unwatchable, especially the HD channels. Reception is affected by the microwave running and sometimes people walking in the room. Haven't yet figured out how the weather impacts reception. Overall, however, considering the price, we couldn't be happier with this little antenna for our kitchen TV.

      Great - Cheap and Effective

      I read a bunch of reviews online about many different antennas. I settled on this one as most said to avoid overly expensive ($45 and above) as they bring in the same amount of channels. I'm glad I listened. While I can't compare a more expensive model to this one (my personal advice would be to start cheap until you find one that matches how many and what channels you want) what I can tell you is that this brought in all the channels I wanted and then some (30+ all in HD). There was some minor troubleshooting/fiddling as my local ABC kept cutting in and out, but a little adjusting took care of that. And if you adjust properly, you might get even more channels than you originally had first hooked it up. I got exactly what I wanted out of this antenna.

      its just a basic "rabbit ear" antenna, works for most of the channels, sometimes you have to adjust the antenna to pick up the digital signal but its cheap and works for strong digital signals. if you want something that works for all channels without having to adjust then spend a little more and get an higher quality antenna from Sony or Samsung or if you are a homeowner or your apartment allows for outdoor antennas that is the best option for you to receive all of the basic TV channels available in your area. Remember homeowners are federally protected in having outdoor antennas, no subdivision/home owners association can prohibit someone from attaching a digital antenna to their house or on their property. Call the FCC if you are being harassed or fined regarding that.

      This HD antenna is a pretty great value in terms of price it's very smile and basic. The only issue I have is that it only works great if the antenna is near an exterior wall. I had my living room situated so my TV was against an exterior wall I got a lot of channels and there were not any problems with channels dropping out while watching something. I moved the TV 10-feet across the room and it's against an interior wall and I don't get half the channels that I was getting before. I live in a downtown area in Minneapolis so I presumed that I would get a good signal because according to the internet all the over-the air transmitters in my market were within a 10-mile radius but I still had issues with this antenna when it wasn't against an exterior wall. I suppose that for the price you can't really go wrong but if you want a hassle free over-the-air HD antenna you really get what you pay for. If I could go back in time I would have spent the extra money to buy an externally powered, amplified indoor antenna that way you know that you're going to get the best quality.

      I looked at review after review for an antenna. Several of our major stations are around 30 miles away so I knew that was a problem. Short of something in my attic or on my roof I think this actually does about as well as one can reasonably expect. I was hoping I could just tape it to the back of the tv to hide it but unfortunately that severely affected the reception. Luckily this is small enough I was able to easily set it on the tv's wall mounting bracket so it is still mostly hidden. I have to occasionally move the arms to fix reception but considering the tv is mounted more or less in the middle of my house I'm extremely happy with the results. Could I get better reception? Possibly, but I really doubt it without going up or out with a much much more expensive antenna. I need a new one for the tv in my garage and this is def the one I'm going to buy again.
