Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by sl123 Easy to install, exceeding expectations, and saves me $80 per month
I was tired of paying almost $80 per month for satellite and I didn't want to spend my time trying to get a better deal.
I decided on a three pronged approach. Get an antenna, get a Google TV appliance, and get a Tivo. I have the first two and I am trying to find a Tivon Premiere on Craigslist with the lifetime subscription. I have seen them for $300.
About the antenna: The unit is small and I was able to use cable ties to secure it to my old satellite bracket. I attached the cable and aimed it at San Francisco, or at least in the general direction. When I had the TV search for channels it found 85 digital and 3 analog.
I live about 200 feet up the east San Jose Hills and have a fairly clear view of the valley and hoped for 5 channels. The picture quality is better than satellite and I am writing this on my Logitech Revue.
Repeat after me... I don't need cable or satellite!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by BeaC FINALLY FUZZ FREE TV!!!!!!!!!!!!
Was leary of purchasing based on most reviews on here, but glad we took the plunge. We got about 5 channels and not always clearly, we tried so many indoor antenna's that did not change the amount of channels we received or the quality. My husband put this outdoor antenna on the peek of the roof. Installation was simple, took him about 5 minutes(helped we used the exisiting cable wire from when we use to have cable) he did have to buy a little extra cable wire. Well we went from 5 channels to 40 and they are crystal clear!!! So happy, no cable for us ever again!!! This antenna is sooo worth the investment!

I bought this antenna a couple of weeks ago after looking at options. Mainly I started here because I knew that if I hooked it up and it wasn't good, it could go right back.
I couldn't find anything on how to aim the antenna - and it IS directional so I literally claped it onto a 6' ladder on my back porch and started turning it a little bit at a time to see what happened.
Right away I went from 5 channels to 12. After a bit more "tuning" - and somewhat dependent on weather I am up to about 25 channels - and it's still attached to the ladder!
I plan to attach it to the house this weekend (at about 16') and will update you all.

Was easy to hook up. Chinese to English instructions amusing. Install was easy, reception was excellent. Even picked up CBS from twenty eight miles away. Had one of these prior that went bad after year and a half...not water proof, water resistent. If I could install in attic this would last longer.

This purchase was somewhat of an experiment for me. Just having moved to a new house, and didn't want cable or satellite I thought I would push the limits of the HOA covenants by trying this little guy. Well, the experiment worked out great. With it's small size it's hardly visible on the roof of my garage. I hooked it up and after a scan I was now receiving 23 channels crystal clear. Some of the channels are duplicates, buy hey, that's pretty impressive from a product that I thought I would be returning. Most of the tv station antennas are about 22 miles from my house. I'm very pleasantly surprised with this product.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Mike Good reception
Easy to install and pulls in signal from 40 mi away at 10 ft above ground. It improved my reception by 70 out of 100 from an indoor powered antenna to 86 out of 100 on those distant stations. Be sure to align the antenna properly for the best reception - tilting it towards the signal source may help.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by PTCR Great Product. Just set-up. Received 33 channels!
I just received this product to possibly replace cable. I am in Foxboro, MA. I set this up outdoors on pole on second story porch (about 18 feet above ground). Receiving 33 channels(including HD) out of the Boston and Providence area. Will probably drop cable.

I purchased this antenna based on the positive reviews. Here is what I found:
1. It is very easy to install and setup.
2. It does a fair job of receiving signals.
3. It is very directional sensitive.
4. My home made antenna, made from instructions on the internet, pulls in more than double the stations.
Who should buy this? Anyone who lives within 15 miles of the transmission towers and wants and easy to install antenna for digital over the air TV.
