    Cheap and works well

    I had an old antenna that was a Philips indoor/outdoor one, with a power source. I had been using that for years, and it always seemed to work okay. I'd have to move it around and mess with it to get a consistent signal though. Even with it outside. I assumed that's just how antennas were. The reason I bought this one is that my old antenna stopped picking up CBS and NBC, no matter where I placed it. Even though it had been picking those up just fine before. I guess it finally died. Well, I should have replaced that thing years ago, because this one is so much better. As soon as I plugged it in outside, it picked up almost all the channels perfectly clear. I didn't even bother mounting it properly, since I just kind of set it on my fence and it's reliably working. And it's great that it doesn't even need an external power source. It was fairly easy to put together, only took about 5 minutes. Though I didn't mount it anywhere yet. Keep in mind it does not come with a coax cable, which is a bummer. But luckily I already had them. Don't overspend by buying a coax cable from Best Buy. Compare to Amazon or Monoprice first. There's one weak channel that still wasn't coming in (the main channel for CW), but that one was hit or miss with my old one anyways. I bet if I properly mounted this new one and made some more fine tune adjustments to where I point it, that would work too. But I can still get CW as a subchannel on CBS which comes in fine so not a big problem (except the sub-channel CW does not show up in my DVR guide). By the way. I got it for $25 which was half off. Not sure if it's worth it at full price, but maybe, it is working well for me so far.

    Ok the pic on the box is crazy. I recommend the installation on the gable end or the side of a wall , but not like the pic which shows it on the top of the roof. WOW !. We are about 20-30 miles away and after looking online and for the best direction to point the antenna , using the state and zip, we get about 54 channels and out of those 54 about 49 are very clear. Also bought online a channel Master Stream + which works great , able to pause, rewind etc... and record up to two shows at once. Also free channel list which helps a lot .

    I purchased this antenna on a whim, hoping it would fill a void in local TV programming since cutting the cord. Out of the box, the antenna is very easy to set up and upon finding a suitable place to mount it, was finished in about an hour. Regarding reception and signal, am very impressed. Getting about a dozen clear channels in my area. For my application, the lag screws were a bit overkill, so I used smaller diameter/ shorter ones Would recommend.

    There is a reason this is priced like it is. I set this up in my attic and the first 5-6 weeks it picked up about 60 channels. Then one after another channels started going to no signal. Even after moving the antenna on top of the roof, rescanning and changing the coax to a new quad shielded cable the lost stations didn't come back. I no longer have PBS, CBS, or ABC and sometimes CW works and sometimes not. I replaced it with a $100 antenna and I have almost 70 channels now including all those this antenna lost.

    Good antenna but very directional.

    I was using a Clearstream antenna and getting all of my local network and GA and SC PBS stations. But my local NBC station had a signal that bounced between 58 and 64 and would pixelate and go blank on the low swings. I installed this antenna and the NBC station is now 72 to 74 and dependable. The bad news is that I lost the SC PBS stations because of the increased directionality of this antenna. I guess one PBS station with 4 sub-channels is enough as long as my network stations are dependable.

      Hi WB4ZIT,

      Thank you very much for taking the time to review our antenna. I am glad to read it is working as expected for you. Regarding the channels, this happens all the time, this has to be more with the station than with the antenna itself, if you keep experiencing this situation you can try either relocating your antenna or turning it around and scan again for channels on your TV.

      If further assistance is required, please give us a call at 877-467-4289.

    I was amazed at the ease of putting this antenna together. Just two pieces to snap into place. I already had an antenna mast outside and the two wingnuts made is extremely easy to install. The hardest part was getting on top of the roof and taking down the old antenna that had two nuts to undo. Works great and for the price it is awesome.

    Bought this on sale, the only way to buy anything. All of my local station towers are over 30 miles away and this antenna got all of them and more sitting on top of a garbage can aimed half assed toward the towers. Over 20 stations-of course a lot of them are another language or religious. Does not work too good in the attack. Less than 5 stations, and only 2 came in clear. But I like it, it works great outside. Pretty compact and easy to spread out and install.

    Get this on a deal and you cant go wrong. Works perfectly at about 60 miles away. I must add that I am connected to a signal amplifier so not sure how effective it is without it. But the antenna that originally came with the amplifier didnt work as well, so it has increased my reachable signals significantly. It also looks nice installed and has held up to our Santa Ana winds.

    The Design of this item was not well thought out. Easy to assemble but quality is subpar. Using an indoor paper thin antenna gets better reception than this mounted outdoor at the highest point on the house. So now I’ll add this item to my list of insignia junk box. You would think I’d learn after the other insignia items that didn’t work well. There must not be a testing process during design or assembly

    Problems for years getting good reception ever since digital took over. I'm towards the low side of a hill. Mounted antenna temporarily to test. Not as high as I could go, only about 8 feet at gutter level. Got 40 plus channels and our multiple PBS channels so far are very stable w/ no dropouts. The PBS signal strength is about 75%, stable, and I may get it better with some tweaking.

    Installation was super easy - just two bolts into the side of the house and then a coaxial cable running into the house and into the TV. Just make sure you experiment on which side of the house is best for reception. Once you find that, the picture is unbelievably clear and strong. We pick up all the local channels and then about 55 more. Best bang for the buck out there.

    Easy to set up and attach. I live in an area which with heavy tree canopies and have used 3other antennas. None of which worked. This actually works great. Have not had any problems yet, did really good they a decent early season snow storm. If anything changes throughout the winter I will update my review.

    I bought this antenna for my daughter to but up in the rafters of their garage. They are located 17 miles from the TV transmitters. This product is very well made and just the right size. Great mounting bracket. They had problems before with many different antennas that we tried, but now the signals are strong and solid.

    So after few days or weeks purchasing this Antenna, I was very surprise how much this antenna can cover on miles. The only downside is it would of been great, if the antenna came on pole. So one doesn't have to drill on top of the roof or side of roof. But overall it still great Antenna to have

    This compact antenna looks great on the roof and gets all the local channels I need. I used an old satellite mount and it worked out perfect. I am about 25 miles from the local television towers so your mileage may vary.

    • My Best Buy® Elite Plus Member

    I was unable to pull in all of the local stations. The primary reason is the design. The plastic prevents a good contact making the outside antenna worthless. Took the device back, upgraded to Mohu sail. I have had no issues. All of the local stations are presenting.

    This antenna is used for my husbands mancave. He not only picks up 14 digital stations but 6 analog channels as well. The big plus is that We can use a wi-Fi extender and pick up streaming channels like Amazon prime.

    Great HDTV channels from over 30 miles away. Paid $20 on Deal of the Day. What else is there to say except I was paying $225 a month for Cable. Now I pay nothing. I get 40 channels all for free.
