We just purchased our convert box and a set of $10.00 rabbit ears. The rabbit ears worked ok as long as you put heavey duty foil on the ends and had them pointed right in the walk way. (could receive about 20 to 23 channels) Not good. So after talking to my neighbor (who by the way did not recommend this product he just gave me good advice and said do your research) and doing much research on this product off I went to WalMart. Purchased this product, brought it home and was shocked that a $50.00 antenna with rave reviews (from RCA) did not even work as well as my foil wrapped rabbit ears. (this thing only pulled in about 12 channels) DON'T waste your time or money. So back to Wal Mart we went and purchased the Phillips Manta 940 ($20.00 cheaper) brought it home hooked it up and presto great crystal clear picture and now get 30 channels in the house. Can't wait to see how many channels we get when mounted in the attic. If you are looking for a good atenna that can be used indoors or out go for the Phillips.

I read a number of negative reviews on this so I was a bit hesitant about getting this, however since I knew I could return it due to Walmarts excellent return policy I decided it to give it a try. My first signal was an analog one and it did look bad but I realized I wanted to see the digital stations only and programmed my set to search for those. The digital channels came in great and I was blown away by how good they looked. Off air was better than cable for digital and the hi-def was great. The size was perfect for placing it on top of my nearby kitchen cabinets. An advantage of using the cabinets was I got it as high as I could and was able to turn as I needed it to balance out the signal strengths among the 6 digital stations I was able to get. Most were 20 to 30 miles away. Those people complaining about the signal are either too far away or are expecting it to work with regular UHF stations. This small antenna is optimized for digital signals and it does a fine job at that. I was thinking I would need an amplifier and was satisfied that I did not.

I looked at several of the antennas on this site and it was important for me that the antenna was available in-store so I could compare them side-by-side and would be omni-directional and not cost too much as I expect to get either HD cable or satellite in a couple of years. There is a more expensive version of this (also in stores) and the only difference is this one does not pick up FM radio stations. If all you want is an antenna for TV pick this one and save $20. It comes with a small optional amplifier and I recommend using it. With it on, I was able to pick up an HD signal from 40 miles away and it is excellent. All of the HD signals are crystal clear and extremely sharp. My only complaint is the analog TV signals are fuzzy. I'm three miles from my NBC and CBS transmitter (they share a tower) and I was surprised the analog signals came in so poor. I'm not too worried about that since they will go away in Feb. 2009. The manual says the antenna works best laying flat. My TV is not near a window and to pick up that distant station I had to mount the antenna vertically about 7 feet up the wall behind the TV. I noticed no difference in picture quality whether it was vertical or horizontal. If you are looking for an unobtrusive indoor antenna that you don't have to constantly adjust as you switch channels, don't want to spend to much on and don't care about analog signals, then this is an excellent choice.

I purchase this antenna and have used it in two locations with two different setups. I plugged it into my media center pc and was able to get 17 HD tv channels and all of my local FM radio channels. Plugged into my television directly it gives me a better HD local picture than Time Warner did. Highest recommendation!

Cable service prices continue to grow and the viewing options are limited when you have 150 channels and nothing you ever watch comes on. Buy this antenna and cut the cable cord! I purchased this bad boy on a whim last night because I just moved and there's no way I'm paying $60 for cable. Got it hooked up and ran the Air Channel Search on my tv and boom, I now have between 15-20 FREE channels to watch in my spare time. The picture is exceptionally clear, sound signal coming through is crisp with no dropout. I have not seen the signal quality during bad weather, but I couldn't imagine it would be unusable in the least. Placement of the antenna was very easy as it is flat with no old outdated rabbit ears. Between this and Netflix, don't hesitate to cut your cable cord. I save $642 a year!

My husband bought this in our local Walmart this morning for 29.99. We hooked it and the amplifier that came with it to a new HD tv. Our goal was to get local news so we could do away with expensive satellite and use our Roku box for movies, etc. It didn't work till we did an auto channel scan. Trying to punch in the local channel numbers on the remote got us nothing. The scan found 4 channels. Expecting the 4 local channels, we were surprised to get 2 local and 2 we had never heard of, a country music channel and Cool TV. Picture was outstanding and sound good. A little breakup till we found the right spot. We hung it on the wall behind the tv next to a window. We are sitting on a hillside with the hill less then 6 ft, behind our tv room and a hill directly across the road from us. The satellite guys were surprised we got a satellite reception at all. This little antenna achieved what rabbit ears couldnt and my hubby didnt want to string cable wire up the side of a mountain at his age. We were excited at how plain channels 8 and 11 were and that we got them at all lol. Now he gets the news, I get American Idol and the Roku box gets the rest and we save 86.00 a month off satellite, which for social security recipients is great! Also, it rained hard while we were adjusting it and it didnt lose the signal.

The product looks nice - However - I live near the city of town in Greensboro, NC and it was unable to pick up anything that was over 5 miles away. This antenna is a total waste of time and money. It could not even pick up any of the local networks - ABC, CBS, Fox or NBC.

I love this product. It is way more then I expected. A lot of products claim to do what they say they do but they fall short of all their claims. This Antenna is the best I have ever owned. I never have to get up and mess with the rabbit ears to get a clear picture. My antenna is on a self inside my T.V cart. When people come to visit they think I have cable/satellite. The picture is perfect. Love it, Love it, Love it ...... : )

I live in the ground floor of a 3 story apartment & I succeed in getting a 16 mile distant digital channel crystal clear. Though it is multidirection, when I placed on the wall or near the TV stand, as advertised, I didn't get a single channel. So before deciding to return the product I had to walk around my room with the antenna to see if I can catch something. And fortunately I did by placing it on a side table, slanted at 30° from vertical, facing the window. I get 4 digital channel & 2 analog channels crystal clear, keeping the antenna in that particular direction.

I returned this product after having it for a day. It simply does not meet my expectations. For 50 dollars an antenna better out perform my current antenna that i bought for 5 dollars. This antenna failed to do that. I wanted a new antenna so I could watch CBS. My old antenna could pull the channel, but it would the audio would skip and the picture would be choppy because i am using a digital converter box, and the signal wasn't strong enough. I assumed buying a 50 dollar antenna would be able to pull in this channel for me since i could pretty much get it anyway. Wrong. This antenna didn't even give me a weak signal for CBS. It didn't give me Any signal. The other channels came in clearly and crisp. But since it is 50 dollars, it should out perform my 5 dollar RCA antenna. It did not. I believe the multidirectional claim is bogus too. This antenna simply isn't worth the money. It is possible that some people are happy with the product, but since it does not outperform a 5 dollar antenna i simply cannot give it a good review.
