Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Reviewer999 Good antenna
Good antenna as long as you have room to maneuver it. The Main antenna is for UHF. Rabbit ears(not shown - out the back) are about three foot long and are for VHF. I sacrificed UHF channel 12 in order to receive VHF channel 6. If I had more room I would have received both. Most of the new channels are UHF if you dont need VHF this antenna should be great. I tried three other antennas that weren't nearly as good.

I purchased a pile of antennas after searching online resources and reading reviews. If you check the " FCC DTV Reception Maps" (use the words in quotes for your search) they will tell you exactly what channels to expect and in my case that is exactly what I was able to get with this antenna.
I also tried a cheap $10 antenna that was well reviewed and availble at Big Lots. The cheap $10 antenna did just as well as this pricier one. So you make the call.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by flsunset71 Best one so far!
I have tried about 5 different antennas. This has a 45 mile range! Think thats what did it. This works better than any other one I've tried. No more adjusting, its a keeper!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Pete Works great
I tried many of the antennas that were available in stock at local stores. This one out-performed them all. I get enough broadcast channels now that I cancelled cable. I am almost as excited as Joey and Chandler were when they got a free special channel. One reason that this antenna works particularly well for me is that it is directional. Since I live 30 miles or so from a major metropolitan area, many of the broadcast antennas are at the same compass heading relative to my house. So I can point this thing east and pick up many stations. That may not work well for people who live in an area with broadcast antennas in all different directions.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by TashaMom "Top Heavy"Poorly designed,Broke Min's latter..
I bought this model despite reading the poor reviews & it was Broken Min's after I un-packed & set it up,the Design is Awful it's Top Heavy & the Base is why it's tooo Thin & mine fell over & Broke Both "Bunny Ears" & I couldn't send it back & I only ordered it in hopes to be able to catch Ch.8 which it did Not so I'm still using the original one I bought a Philips HDTV Plastic Antenna that is made to be mounted Out Side but mine I use inside & in my bedroom & I've dropped mine plenty of times & it's still doing ok thank goodness, Invest in a Philips for aprox $30.00 & I doubt U would be disappointed.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by bb2350 TV image better than cable
I recieve over 40 channels and the quality of the image is better than that of the cable company. Easy to install. A friend visited and noticed the quality of the picture. Decided to order the same antenna to replace the cable service.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Larrs56 NOT BAD FOR THE PRICE
I was very skeptical on another try for an indoor antenna. This was my last try and then I was going to go for a roof antenna. We had lost Fox on cable so I was missing football games. I tried this and ended up picking up 4 channels inside the house. Our house was historically a bad reception area. So this was a surprise. We got our Fox back on cable but I'm keeping this as a backup when cable goes out. Good video on this on youtube. A bit top heavy. If you are closer to the source of reception you will do fine.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Deftech Poor Antenna Reception
I tried this over a basic pair of rabbit ears to receive over the air HD channels. This product lost over 10 channels and does not like to sit on its base. Reading about digital reception, I do not understand what the amplifier is for. It would have worked for the older analog broadcast, but of no use on HD. Amplifying 0% reception is still 0%. Switched back to the plain old rabbit ears for now.
