    Mohu Leaf Meh-SoSo

    Like many, after reading the reviews, i thought I'd try it, especially for the price. Easy to assemble and connect. The only problem is, even at the highest point of my wall, in my bedroom, near a window, the reception was not that good. Alot of tiling and pixelation. I even reached out to the Mohu tech support for help and suggestions. Their reply was pretty basic and they suggested I replace the unit I just bought. Being fairly knowledgeable about cable, connections and such. I decided to take a different approach and I hope this will help everyone. I took a pre-existing cable line, ran it to my tv. Then, I connected it to a splitter on my outside exterior wall, and then connected the antennae to the splitter. Walaa...the picture is clear, sharp and no tiling. I later mounted it to my exterior outside wall. I've included pictures to show what i did. And the best thing is, with the splitter, I can now connect 2 other tv's to it so that they can get the channels too. It took some figuring out, and a bit of re-working but it became worth it. So if you have time, tools and proper equipment, you can do it too. But if you're looking to try to keep this antennae indoors, it may not work as well. Hope this helps.

    With this type of antenna it either works or doesn't -- not much in between. Set it up on kid's apartment window in Minneapolis and received ALL local stations perfectly. Tried to buy her another for bedroom TV but Best Buy does not stock it in many urban stores, notably Minneapolis, La Crosse, Eau Claire and Madison (all of which are "college towns"). Salesman at Best Buy Ridgedale tried to steer me to pricier products claiming they were "better" and had "more range" but in the case of Minneapolis area all the stations have their towers in the same Arden Hills location and the amplification for most would be unnecessary (and costly) overkill. (Note: I worked in broadcasting for many years with FCC license.) Strange how this is not stocked in places where it really could be used quite well.

    With amplified antennas, not only am I spending money on electricity, but I am losing channels in the process. My rabbit ears work better than amplified antennas. The Mohu is not amplifed. It takes absolutely no electricity. It can be mounted anywhere. With my lucky rabbit ear antennas, I was able to get an easy 77 crystal clear channels. The Mohu blows that out of the park with a resounding "88" brilliant, crystal clear channels. Imagine what it can do for anyone else. I have now used it for every television in my home. I don't let anyone I see, even in passing, buy anything else. I am converting all of my cable crazy friends to try DTV with this antenna instead. Those that have, not only have more money, but love the brilliance of their clear choices of programming.

    I read the review and it had one of the best reviews for an indoor antenna. The only problem I have with it is that it doesn't stick to my windows so it is constantly falling off, loosing reception. I would have to reposition it again and again. I had to purchase a longer cord so it could be extended to the area I wanted to place it which was my window, that was were I received the best reception. I do not receive great reception in my area at all, I tried putting it on the wall the reception was poor not all channels came into view. The only problem I have with it is that is falls off my window, I have this long ugly cord to use as an extension so it will reach the area where I get the best reception. They do not supply you with a 8' cord but a small size cord so I had to go out and purchase one. If I didn't have to keep replacing it into position I could receive better reception. The price was good and it works better than the more expensive indoor antennas that are on the market. I have the more expensive one I purchased originally and now using that one on the other TV on the opposite side of my home.

    Awesome Free Local Channels

    I bought this at a great price from one of the deals of the day. My dad had been wanting one for his house (since I borrowed his and never gave it back... don't give me that look! He said I could keep it!) Anyways, I didn't realize this was for use in big cities (I thought the word metro was a brand). My parents live in the country, but this antenna works AMAZINGLY! It picks up all the free channels in at least a 30 mile radius and if the channels are available in HD they show nice, crisply, and clearly. Once you find the right spot to put it (dad put his in the window), it doesn't cut in or out, not even when it's raining hard. This is the main reason my dad wanted one of these because the satellite goes out when theres a medium to hard rain!

    I decided a couple of weeks ago to finally cut the cord! We haven't really watched regular television in a while, so it was time. Anyway, this antenna arrived at my home yesterday. I understand that everything works differently for everyone, so I wasn't expecting much when plugging this in to my kid's television. Honestly, I still had a thought that you only pick up 4 -5 channels with an antenna (like I experienced in the 90s). This antenna managed to pick up at least 42 channels! I'm sure it also has something to do with where I live (I stay in a suburb of the metro Atlanta area). Either way, this is a great antenna and I am actually about to purchase another.

    Not Bad for the Price

    I was skeptical at first, but pleasantly surprised. This antenna works great for the price and picks up quite a few channels. The resolution is crystal clear with no interruptions. The only reason it does not get a 5 star rating is because the antenna picks up fewer channels than advertised. However, this is not a complaint. It can only pick up signals in the area. Great buy though. I plan to get one for the bedroom too. I've brought other antennas in the past, which turned out to be JUNK. Fits anywhere and is light weight. I position my antenna in my window sill. All in all, a great buy!

    I live in the city and thought this would give me a good alternative to paying for another network subscription for a tv I don't use often. Unfortunately, this product did not work for me. I only cared about receiving the prime time local channels for my rarely used guest bedroom. Although a good number of channels registered, the main local channels were intermittent in signal. I moved the Leaf around a lot of areas and windows but still the same result. It may work for others, but unfortunately not for me. This was my first experience with this type of antenna. At least I am glad that I tried it, and Best Buy is so good with returns.

    I wanted to compare this antenna and rabbit ears. This antenna comes with a very good cable, it seems hd quality. It is easy to set, and easy to program. The instructions say to put it close to a window, or high on a wall that is closest to outside to get better reception. You can get for the antenna in either white or black (so the wall won't look so bad). I didn't do any of that except put it low on the wall behind the tv because frankly I want to hide the cable and antenna. And even with that, I like the quality and number of channels I get, which is 20+ channels where I live. I would buy again, specially considering I paid about $15 and is about the same as the rabbit ears or just maybe I'd try Best Buy's brand of HD antenna as I still need two more antennas.

    I purchased the Mohu-Leaf antenna based on reviews and because of the reasonable price. I live in a metropolitan area, so the 25-mile reach was enough for me. I can watch the four major networks, as well as additional stations. Because television stations broadcast in digital, the picture is better than I had with standard cable. I was so impressed that I bought a second one for my kitchen TV. Installing couldn't be easier: simply attach to the TV with the included coaxial wire, adjust the TV setting to antenna instead of cable, and it will start scanning for stations. It's very easy to hide the antenna. It's flat design allows you to pin it to the wall (pins also included).

    I will say I bought an open box RCA antennae from Best Buy a few years back and have been very pleased with it. So when I decided to upgrade my TV, I upgraded the antennae as well. For the price, this antennae is okay. Included in the box are felt pads and tacks to pin the antennae up to place it in the best location in the room for best reception. I wouldn't say it is any better than a cheap antennae for $10 less but it does the job and isn't black. Which was a huge selling point for me. And all the reviews I read about it were accurate. So if you are wanting to upgrade and get a cleaner look and tired of all the black this is your guy. The overall reception is good and I get most of my basic channels with it but I do have to tweak it a little. So I would say I got what I paid for.

    It was very easy to set up-- took quite a few minutes to scan, but worked right away. It even gave me the option to set up a DVR feature if I attached a flash drive to the TV. It has very good picture quality. I've been using it for a few weeks and haven't experienced the picture cutting out. I am 25 miles from the city and I have the antenna close to a window. I love its slim design and the fact that it came with Velcro and pushpins to attach the antenna to the wall. It's very discreet and much lighter than the antenna that I have on my other TV.

    Antenna works better than the others we tried

    We have two of these antennas. We put one in a room where we expected excellent reception. The reception was excellent. We reliably receive all the channels we expected. We put the second in a room that gets poor reception due to the construction of our house. Other antennas we tried tended to receive only about ten of the twenty stations we expected. We had to experiment to find the best location for this antenna. It receives all the desired stations except two that have a problematic transmitter location. In summary, these work better than the other antennas we have tried.

    I cut the cord on cable over a year ago and bought an expensive antenna that had an amplifier that got great reviews. I had to move it around the room depending on what channel I wanted which was a pain. I bought one of these for my daughter's room not wanting to spend $60 again and to my surprise it was far superior to the expensive one. I find that just by laying it on the floor I get almost all the channels that I should be receiving. I LOVE LOVE LOVE it!!! It comes with a long coax cord and the antenna itself is small and color versatile (one side black, one side white). I highly recommend without question.

    I have a tv in my below grade lower level part of my townhouse and cable would not work. I decided to try an antenna and it brings in 26 channels clear as day. The tv is on a wall between 2 below grade windows and I connected the antenna and placed it on the window sill on top of a fan. So less money will be going to Comcast now! I am about 7 miles from a major city and live in a densely populated area.

    Good deal for basic channels

    I was considering getting the amplified Leaf 50, but after looking up which channels were in range to my rural home, I decided the price difference wasn't worth the few extra channels I would've got. I get all basic local broadcasts now for news and football so I'm happy. I decided to mount it on a window near my TV where it pulled in the most channels. The provided hook and loop sticky velcro pads while very sticky, continue to fall off the window. It's super annoying, but I'll maybe just have to super glue the pads on or something. Overall I can't complain, especially since I used my Best Buy rewards and a 10% off coupon which brought the cost to $3.17 which was nice.

    Great Reception, Convenient Design

    I don't have a lot to compare this to for reception, as I have mainly used rabbit ears in the past, but it picks up all of the channels I would expect, and the design works out great for my purpose. I am using it in a travel trailer, and it tucks away flat inside netting attached to a wall. The signal seems to be affected less by movement inside the trailer than rabbit ears were, so this one may be less "directional." Overall it is ideal for a setting where you need an unobtrusive and easy-to-conceal, but still effective, antenna.

    This antenna works 'ok,' for me. I have about 55 channels that I didn't have before, so that's nice (but not many 'good' ones). However, the traditional channels look great, in 4k, I believe (ABC, NBC, FOX, CBS, PBS, etc.). Location of the TV may affect the channel availability. For a "Deal of the Day" purchase of $14 - not bad. I think if my TV were in a better location, the results would be much better. Also, the antenna is smaller that I thought it would be (check specs).

    During the 2018 Winter Olympics, we wanted to watch without subscribing to cable TV or paying for the NBC subscription service through an app. Some friends recommended getting an HD TV antennae. With minimum research, I found a few different manufacturers with good reviews. But I didn't know which range of antennae. I quickly searched what broadcasting stations were in range of my house, and found they were almost all within 25 miles, except one, so I chose this antennae. All the channels come in HD and look great on our 49" TV.

    This is the 3rd one of these antennas I bought for my tvs. I dropped Direct TV and cable and use these instead. I get about 25 channels (40 but some duplicates). I have them taped high up on the inside of the windows but they can also work on the wall. Since they have a black and white side, I have the white side facing out to blend better with the mini blinds. When it is on the wall you face the white forward for it to blend with the white wall. At $19, this is a great price. This antenna saves me a lot of money each month.
