Not worth it
Rating:1 out of 5 stars
The antenna worked great for every channel except I couldn’t get NBC. I could get all the channels with a regular rabbit ear antenna but for some reason with this one NBC just wouldn’t come in.

Works great, unobtrusive
Rating:5 out of 5 stars
No antenna seems to get all positive reviews, so I was reluctant on purchasing this one. However, it works great for me. I needed to get it after Comcast took away local high definition stations. I use it with a Channel 3 Signal Combiner. The Comcast digital transport adapter comes in on Channel 3 and all the digital stations come in through the antenna. I had no issue setting it up and I really like it since it sits on a shelf and is completely hidden from view.

Great for wide Range, but if you’re looking for Local DIgital chanel this is not the one!

I lived in area where ABC signal is hard to get. This antenna is not an exception. I can’t get ABC digital using this antenna. Save yourself time, buy regular rabbit antenna and put them at correct spot. Rabbit antenna actually work better for the 5 Local Channel that I want to get. The positive thing about this antenna is that I received over 54 FTA channels.

Strange results, but you get what you pay for…
Rating:2 out of 5 stars
Well, first of all, I live on the first floor of a large apartment building that is VERY near the intersection of several major highways and interstates. PLUS, I am in the flight path of a small-to-medium size airport. In other words, it’s amazing that I can get ANY signals, and yet I do reasonably well…with my OLD antenna!

The bizarre part is that this antenna picks up a station that I’d tried everything except standing on my head with the old antenna to get. BUT, does it get the stations that had a really strong and fairly reliable signal??? NOOOOOOOOO!!!

Bottom line is that, as others have said, your reception is going to be VERY dependent upon your location and what’s around you to block or bounce the signals off of. Considering it cost only $30 and it provides me a way to get the channel that carries my local hockey team’s games, I consider it worth it. Still, for everyday watching of all the major networks, I’m going to have to keep using my old one.

In my book that ranks two stars. Even with all the factors working against it, the fact that it can’t compete with a 10+ year-old non-“amplified” antenna is sad.

Reception
Rating:3 out of 5 stars
It probably is the price, but I cannot fine a single spot where there is good reception for all channels. A more powerful antenna I would hope would solve the problem. Beside the above it works well
