i had all kinds of trouble in my apartment building getting channels, it is a concrete steel building, with about 150 residents and lots of electronic things going on (utilities included in the rent). i read all the reviews and also shopped around to other places too. i liked a review i had read and will reiterate; this antenna got channels others didn't, at less cost, highly recommended, easy to use. light to move if needed to adjust, i am very happy with this product and i sure appreciate everyone that gives reviews because it really helps decide things.
Such a sharp picture and excellent reception. Surprised that this actually worked better than a more expensive one that I had tried out!

My favourite stations are on CBS and their transmitter signal is weak and buried in the mountains. I've had to use an amplified antenna for years, to get my programs. I wasn't sure this one would work as it does not plug in, but it is excellent. I can finally haved my TV back. The unit is not cheap and flimsy, but solid and good quality. I am very pleased. Doubly so, as my rooms are plug - challenged and I don't have to deal with plugs and cords for signal amplification. I don't know how it will hold up, yet, but on first use, I am very happy with the unit. It looks a little sci fi, but its size makes it perfect for extra rooms and small spaces, Very pleased.
I highly recommend this antenna. This is the first antenna that I have owned that does not pixelate and skip. I love it! I was skeptical about this antenna because it was very inexpensive. It has proved that it is worth every penny! I have owned the flat ones that cost more and the long antennas but this one catches a better signal. Also, I placed my antenna behind my tv because I don't want it to be seen and it works perfectly. I WILL buy more when it comes back in stock. It is definitely a must have. I scanned for channels twice and got every station in my city. This was a great purchase and shipping was about normal 5-6 days to get here.
When our cable company switched to paying for each television box we bought this to watch local TV in the kitchen. It works great. We're in a suburb with minimal trees, no tall buildings, etc. We did try one at the cottage, but the trees and distance from signal origins prevented reception.
Once connected to TV I couldn't receive a picture. Since there was nothing on the screen at all, I knew we had a problem. I disassembled the unit and found a mashed/broken wire in the body of the antenna, it was crushed between the upper and lower casings. It was obviously constructed without quality review, or by someone without a clue. Now since I have separated the housing I knew I would be criticized if I tried to return the antenna, therefore it sits on my hall table with an unknown destination. As I read the instructions under the avoid tips, this will most likely not be posted, but someone should be advised of the poor construction/assembly. This is hardly 'inappropriate language', but truthful findings.
This antenna provides all of the local channels that I expected, plus lots of additional ones that I'll never watch. The picture quality is excellent. While the actual product feels a bit flimsy, it's a great value at about $**. It provides as good of reception as more expensive products. If it breaks, I'll buy another one.
This product did not perform in my house probably due to location. Our house sits down in a little hole and the VHF signal may not reach us. I had trouble with an expensive tuner in the same manner several years ago and therefore can not receive radio signals.
