Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Walks Crystal clear picture from over 50 miles out
I've tried a number of the "flat" HD antennas and have for the last year+ been using an old fashioned 30 year old antenna I had in my attic since we built the house. That worked well but always got pixelation during any kind of cloudy or rainy weather.
Right now I'm sitting here watching the Super Bowl pregame shows in perfect HD and we are in the middle of the worst snow storm of the year. Perfect picture over 50 miles out and I have the antenna in my attic.
The Freevision also picked up more channels than anything else I tried. I did take a little testing which way to point it but I'm shocked it works so well.
I would note I also use a cheap RCA video amplifier to help push the signal through the coaxial. If you have several TV's hooked up you'll most likely need one too. They're about $20 and available at Home Depot as well.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Bronco131 This thing really pulls in all available stations.
I am a pro installer and have been using the Channel Master metrotenna Model CM4220HD and the Aspen Eagle DTV2B, I thought I was pretty satisfied with there performance. One day I found myself out of these antennas and needed one quick. I went to Home Depot to see what they had and purchased the Winegard Freevision antenna and WOW what a difference! I picked up another one on my way home and installed it immediately on my house. No more pixelating, no more searching for data and no more signal unavailable. I'm sold! And will never install any antenna but this one.

I tried two indoor amplified antennas with fair and intermittent results. I mounted this outside a second floor window just above the roof, but not above the chimney. It's been a week now, and reception has been flawless. I am at a decent elevation - I believe about 375' above sea level. I can pick up a station perfectly that's over 35 miles away. I like that there's no power required. I was surprised that the performance was as it is considering the antenna is going into a splitter and two TVs on different floors. That's without any amplification.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Cris Amazed. Shocked. In awe.
After deciding to cut the cord with my cable company, I had my heart set on trying an antenna out. Trying to find the right one was the problem since I live 45 miles from anything remotely close to a city. I tried numerous indoor ones with not even 1 channel getting signal.
Next was trying to find an outdoor one that:
1: wouldn't take a lot of install time
2: wouldn't be so bulky it would look like I was trying to contact aliens
3: I could actually see in person and buy today
I stumbled on this one today while browsing the internet for different stores availability. Home Depo had this one in store so it was mine. I rated the quality low because it is just cheap aluminum after all and it is very flimsy. Most antennas are though.
I haven't installed it yet because I need to fabricate a house mount to get the direction i want but I did test it. Since the box said 30miles I decided to go with the amplifier which Home Depo also had for $20. I plugged it all in to 50ft premium coax and just held it out of my back door while doing a channel search. My jaw hit the ground to see 12 channels just by holding this thing out of my back door.
Keep in mind, I'm 45 miles from any tv towers and surrounded by mountains. Wow is all I can say.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Chas Beat my expectations and then some!!!!
Installed the antenna on same support that used to have my Dish antenna. Used the cable that ran into the house and had to do very little adjustments. Started receiving 6 channels and with a little fine tunning I got 10 channels-----three were all Spanish speaking, but what the heck. Ain't having to pay the cable company or Dish network. I believe with a higher support pole (ten foot pvc sections, schedule 40, olnly about 5 dollars each at Home Depot) I could receive more channels, especially from the Orlando locations. (we were in Vero Beach---about 100 plus miles south of Orlando---our channels were from West Palm Beach and Vero

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by kap1 Really Nice Design, Good Performance
I bought this antenna primarily based on the favorable performance reviews, but I also wanted something that wasn't outlandishly large. This antenna met both requirements perfectly; very good performance, very compact size. The attached picture will provide scale and the reception and picture quality are better than expected. While I can't vouch for fringe service performance I would expect that this antenna would serve very well for most short to mid-range applications and do it without looking like a typical monstrosity. The antenna has nail holes in the body to use to attach it to the side of the house. I would suggest going the extra mile to drill pilot holes and use screws instead of nails for a more secure installation. All in all, the only way that installation could have been easier is if somebody else did it for me.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by 1488eli Great Product for the Price
The antenna seems to be a quality product for the price. There was very minimal assembly. I installed the antenna on the back of my shop underneath a tree. I still picked up over 10 channels and I live about 50-60 miles from the nearest broadcasting station!
