    I just installed it in my studio apt. On a wall mount behind my TV. I don't have a cable box. So I just installed this Philip MANT940 directly to my Sony HDTV which capable to receiving digital programming. I'm living in downtown in Bay Area. And there're allot of buildings are all around my apartment building. But my stations are from around 3-60 miles away. I can pick up the signal about 34 digital channels which is about the same as my cheap rabbit antenna... *BUT the thing is this Philip MANT940 has: - A much much better 'strong' signal (95%-100%) - A better image quality—very crisp and clear, shaper, and better colors. - A better receiver (I put it on a floor behind my TV and it's still picked up most of the channels!) - A very well slick design and great function. A small unit and easy to move around or rotate setup. - Easy to installing - Indoor/Outdoor - A thoughtful array of accessories - Not that expensive compare to other brands Overall, I'm pleased with this product.

    I was sceptical about buying this product at first! But after reading the great reviews on here and comparing antennas from: Radioshack,Walmart,Target,Kmart; I decided to finally take a drive to my local walmart in Perris,CA and purchased it, installed it on my wall in my room and started the setup process on my Brand new 19" HDTV Emerson Flat Screen that i also bought from the same walmart about 4 days ago! WOW was i impressed with this HDTV Amplified Antenna, its been the best antenna i've ever had and thats ever worked so good!!! Highly recommened this product it worked great for me here in May Ranch/Perris CA!!!

    Before, with my glorified rabbit ears I had nothing, and now with this antenna I have more channels than I will ever watch. I live in Durham, NC and although I don't know exactly where all of the antennas are I suspect the majority are in or near Raleigh (approx. 25 miles from me), since it's the state capital. I actually mounted the antenna on top of my closet door in a way that I can turn it 180 degrees and change its direction depending on the channel. Of course, now I can't close my closet all of the way but it never stayed closed anyway. Overall, this is a great antenna for a great price and gets my stamp of approval! (for what that's worth)

    This antenna for the price is an excellent choice to use with your digital converter boxes. I had my cable turned off and decided to go with (free) DTV using the Magnavox converter boxes I also bought from Walmart. I needed an antenna, and I did a lot of shopping around. When I saw this one I decided to give it a try. I had it installed in less than 10 min. This included mounting it to the eave on the outside if my mobile home. This antenna provides a clean crisp picture, and pulls stations in as far as 45 miles away with a 90 percent signal! Definitely worth the money.

    The Phillips MANT940 Indoor/Outdoor Amplified HDTV Antenna works pretty good outside. Just place the antenna up in the horizontal position with the narrow end pointing in the direction of the transmitters. This will product the most amount of Television Channels. Hear at my house in Port Orchard I am receiving at least 30 Channels out of Seattle, Washington. To extend the amount of cable between the Panel antenna and the power amplifier just add a gold plated female in line connector with extra television coax cable.

    WORKS nice - comes with 20 feet of coax which probably way short if you want to mount on roof, Philips could have used the high grade RG6 stuff - Mine is attic mounted and found that if you turn it horizonal so it lays flat rather then standing up vertical like in the pictures it picks up better The instructions don't indicate what is the front and how to point it - so experiment. Got numerous more digital stations picked up then expected

    I purchased this for my sons' TV in his apartment. I tried it on my set first, because I was curious to see how it would perform against my DB8 Multi-Directional HDTV Antenna. I put it on my main set and did not mount or took the antenna outdoors. It perform great for just being in the house and not on a long cable run. On my other antenna I cannot receive my local PBS channels well due to where I live, but this unit brought it in well when I found the right spot in the house. I am curious now to see how well it will perform mounted on a mast outdoors. Now in my sons' apartment I mounted the antenna on a speaker floor stand. It performed well and was able to find 7 digital and 5 analog after trying several places in the room. I do recommend this antenna. Works well in an indoors setting, but keep in mind that where and how far from the stations transmitters you live will affect the receiving abilities from any antenna. If you are mounting in or outdoors with a long cable run, be sure to install a cable like RG6 or better.

    This HDTV antenna exceeds my expectations. Right now, I have it indoors, on the basement window ledge, in my rec room, but when the weather gets better, I will put it outside to get even better reception, if that's possible. Without it, I was only getting 5 HD stations. With it, indoors, I'm getting 16 HD stations. I am at the least, about 15 miles from the nearest stations antennas. I'm also picking up more UHF stations than before. I am very happy with this product.

    A review of a product like this is useless without providing the specifics of the situation, and in this case I was expecting the product to work well. I'm an average of 6-miles from the transmitters of greatest interest -- and as luck has it here in my northeast metro Atlanta neighborhood (IP), there's only about a 13-degree separation of the two main clusters of transmitters. Very good basic situation. I'm able to use this antenna indoors with the face pointing in the general direction of those transmitters, and it pulls in every digital channel in the market, even a couple off-axis channels I didn't expect to get. The picture quality is better than digital cable (specifically Comcast). The antenna is mounted on a piece of 1x scrap wood and hidden behind a flatscreen TV in the corner of a room. The very short cable run (no reason to use the 25-ft coax cable that comes with the antenna) may play a role in the quality. Mostly, it's proximity and an apparently solid product.

    Why pay $70/month for cable?!?!
    5/20/2009

    Customer review by FatalException

    I decided after much deliberation to try HDTV over the air to see if I could get a signal and drop my $70/month cable bill. I realized after analyzing my TV watching habits that about 85% of my viewing was the local networks. I read reviews of different HDTV antennas, researched the locations of the towers relative to my house, and found several favorable reviews for this unit in the Central Florida Region (some on walmart.com!) - so I decided I would give it a try. Living 39-41 miles from the orlando towers I didn't know if I would have any luck. As an initial test I zip tied the unit to my 6' ladder and placed it in my back yard. I 'aimed' it laying flat at the towers instead of the normal vertical orientation as some reviews recommended this way. I estimated my visual line of site using google earth and drawing a line from my house to the 'center' of the orlando TV towers. I hooked it to my 56" panasonic HDTV using a separately purchased phillips quad shielded 100' RG6 coax cable I also purchased from walmart and proceeded to scan for channels. after some time 44 'DTV' stations were found (38 orlando and 6 tampa ~61 miles)! Signal strength varied so I 'tweaked' the aim to get ~77% signal on the weakest station 2.1 (WESH-2 NBC). The tampa stations were marginal at best, but since I am on the side of a hill I have to penetrate earth and building where I have almost direct line of site to the Orlando towers. Success! and it looked great on my TV. Switching between the ATSC antenna HDTV tuning and the brighthouse scientific atlanta HDTV DVR on the same stations showed negligible differences in visual quality. This is most likely due to the difference in the MPEG2 rendering engines between the TV and DVR, and their respective visual cleanup algorithms (think anti ailiasing, MPEG noise reduction, and color correction). So with initial success I moved on to 'splitting' the antenna to 2 TV sets. I used my DTV $40 coupon and purchased the magnavox converter that walmart stocks, and then used a high quality coaxial splitter. Hooking in the converter box and splitting only yielded a slight signal drop (5-7 percent) and I tuned in 38 stations on this TV. So I then decided I would go for it, and mounted the antenna on my roof, ran the coax in the attic, and split the TV's there. Initially I did not get the same reception, so I fiddled with an additional distribution amplifier - that did not help (prob due to no FM trap). I then decided to try different antenna orientations and discovered that standing vertical with it 'aimed' at the towers yielded the best results. I did lose the marginal tampa station, but get 38 orlando stations at 78-100% signal (most are 87%+)! I have it split between 4 TV's now, 2 using the zenith DTT901 box (which is much better than the magnavox BTW) one with the ATSC tuner and the other with the magnavox. I am using a high quality 4 way phillips splitter, and RG6 I pulled and crimped myself to all the sets. So for $70/month I can have a bunch of more channels I watch 15% of the time, or for a one time investment of that amount (coax and antenna) I can watch 85% of my TV for free. That's a no brainer for me. of course I also have an additional investment of $60 for a HDTV video capture card that I put in my windows media center edition PC for DVR capability. I have this hooked to the panasonic as well and it works really well. I Highly recommend this unit! Works for VHF and UHF - best when stood up. Here is a summary: Location: Clermont, FL 34711 Distance from towers: 39-41 Miles (Orlando, FL) DTV Stations: 38 Televisions: 4 Signal: 78-100%
