Rated 5.0 out of 5.0Â by lucasd06 Impressed!
The tv tower is 36.4 miles from our house and the product has an advertised range of 35 miles, so when I was able to pick up 30 channels, I was more than pleased! I first had it in the tv alcove in our wall surrounded by wood and it picked up about 16 channels, so I was worried. I repositioned it facing a different direction and got 18. Then I took it out and smacked it on the window facing the tv tower, and that's when I got the 30 channels. It's been in use for about a month and no qualms about it!

In mid-November Comcast started scrambling basic cable in the Twin City area. Because I detest those cable boxes, thought I would purchase one of these to try it out before deciding what to do about cable TV. Reception is much better than cable! I also believe we see more channels through the antenna than through basic cable. Went back to Home Depot the next night and bought three more. There are two 3M wall stickers in the package so the antenna can be hung high on the wall if needed. One side of the antenna is white and one side is black. In the basement I hung it up as high as possible, but in the other rooms, I just set the antenna up against the wall and it is not all that noticeable. So far this antenna has performed well in the basement, main level, and upstairs; through good weather, snowy weather, and a lot of wind. Recommend if you are in a location where antenna TV is possible and are considering options other than cable TV.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0Â by HDboy Very effective with easy setup
After trying numerous HD antennas with limited success and difficulty in placement, I tried this antenna based on some online reviews. This antenna pulled in more stations without requiring multiple attempts to find an optional placement. I just set it up in a convenient location and ran autoscan on my TV. All of the major networks were receivable along with a number of other channels I didn't expect. This is by far the best antenna I have used. It is possible to buy a variation of this antenna that has an amplifier, but mine is the unamplified version and I have found it to work very well.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0Â by StuS nice little antenna
Like another reviewer stated, Comcast in Vancouver, WA started scrambling basic cable as of Nov 2013 and I lost all of my local HD channels. After Comcast repeatedly gave me the wrong converter box and argued I needed to 'upgrade' for the HD channels I was previously getting, I thought I'd give this one a try before trying one of the larger outdoor antennas. I have it hooked up to a splitter that feeds my TV and a PC running Windows Media Center (DVR).
I get all of the local HD channels I want from the Portland, OR market. I have it mounted on an wall that 'aims' at Portland (we are on the east side of Vancouver about 20 miles from Portland). This antenna is semi-directional in my opinion, but all of the towers are in one direction from my house, so this works very well. I used the signal strength meter on Windows Media Center to 'tune' the antenna direction (pick a wall), but you can really tell if it is in a poor location because channels glitch out. I have the black side showing. I am disappointed I can't get Discovery any more, but I can take the money from basic cable and put it towards NetFlix of something else...

I just picked one up due to the Raycom/DirecTV spat (have to have the Steelers/Browns game tomorrow). I started to install it, screwing the cable in to the coax jack on the TV when my wife asked me to come upstairs to help put our son to bed. I just left the antenna laying on the floor. I came back downstairs and switched the source to the antenna just to see if it was picking up anything but expecting I'd have to move it around to get a clean signal. Laying on the floor, it picked up pretty much everything in range perfectly clear. Going by the Anetennaweb site, most of the stations are in the yellow and the key one was 10 miles away. Great buy at $30
