This unit has MANY reviews on other websites (at least APEX does) and seems to be the same as many others: a necessary device for receiving HD OTA signals for those of us too cheap to upgrade our TV's. So far, I can't complain. The unit is simple to operate, good basic menus, and functions - nothing out of the ordinary here. The remote IS cheap, but functions well-enough. I've had this for abt 2 weeks, and so far my only complaint is that I keep losing a range of signals from a local broadcaster. This necessitates a reprogramming every few days to find the "missing" channels again. I suspect my antenna, but not 100% certain. I DID read that alot of people have this problem as well -- but it's not specific to this unit, rather ALL HDTV OTA Receivers. As long as this thing has the courtesy to die on me BEFORE the warranty expires, I'll be satisfied with it's performance.

I purchased this for a friend that needed a digital box so they could watch TV. The said it was easy to set up and they just love it. I told them to be honest and they said they were. They also like the way the item looks and to tell the truth it is a more attractive digital box then I purchased for myself. Product is attractive, easy to set up, works well and does the job it was purchased for.

This converter box not only does its job, but exceeded my expectations. There are options for favorites, sleep times, etc. and set up could not have been easier. In fact, I have already recommended to many of my friends to stop the cable bills and buy this box!

Easy Setup...but get rabbit ears

Okay, if you have the old school antenna up on your roof, you are in luck...because you can get hundreds of channels! I just got the rabbit ears and get about 50 channels. You will need to adjust the ears and then run the setup to search for new channels again. Keep maneuvering the antenna and scan until you get the most channels. Love the menu guide, however, it isn't as good as you get with the cable channels, but it suffices.

Set-up was easy, works well so far and beats basic pay TV (comcast) hands down. (You will need a digital antenna)

a disappointing product

It seems the manufacturers of these analog converters are out of touch with what is a real world problem for exterior antena users. The box works fine with the antenna pointed in one direction. It scans and receives available channels...in that one direction. However, when you want to view stations in another direction and rotate the antenna to that new direction the converter has to do a new auto scan and there is no memory capability to keep the stations already being viewed in memory. So when you do the new autoscan of available channels in the new direction the box deletes all the old ones and replaces them with new ones. This is a big frustrating problem! There is no "all channel storage memory as implied in the hype. It simply put has a unidirectional memory. You would think that these were made by cable viewers with no knowledge of rural living...who still don't want to be forced into paying for free tv that's out there.

This is a fairly good converter box - because of its features. For example, you are able to delete specific dot channels (5.3, 8.2, etc.) without having to delete the whole group. But, on the other hand, you are unable to zoom all of the channels to achieve a full screen picture. You are stuck with what the station prefers. We received just as many channels with this one as we did with the Magnavox converter. I am convinced that the channel reception is entirely due to your location and your antenna, not your box. I did give this four stars because it met my expectations in all things but the picture size. If wide-screen viewing does not bother you, I would highly recommend this. If it does, go with the Magnavox. We are currently storing this in case of a failure of our current converter box.

The channel guide that comes with this converter box is useless. Most of the time it doesn't even tell what show is on (it says "no info") and you have to push the guide button every time you visit a channel. There is no way to view what is on multiple channels at the same time. The "universal" remote is NOT universal. It works on the converter box ONLY. The only "universal" thing about it is this mute button. The remote also skips channels. You press the button once and it will click through 2 channels. Gets annoying. I would suggest turning this off overnight and when you are not watching TV as well as sitting it by itself (not on top of VCR or DVD player) because it does get quite hot. Even when the power button is off, the fan inside the box continues to run. Makes me wonder how long it will last. We haven't tried any other converter boxes, but I don't feel this product is what it advertises to be.

Was very excited to finally get a converter box, even read the reviews online to make sure I got a good one. Well I just tried to set it up and it doesn't work! I can't get past the initial set up because none of the buttons on the unit itself or remote will register the box to do anything! Ugh.

Several friends own different brand converter boxes, and minem (APEX DT150), is by far the best.
