Product performs as describe. Picture reception and quality are super! Good product for the price. Don't forget attena thought. Scanning gave me about 30 local channels in Cleveland areas.
I have purchased several converter boxes over the past year. This one met all my expectations. It was easy to setup. The instructions were accurate. The box was nice and small. It fit perfectly. Great Deal!
We connected this converter box to our other HDtv in just a matter of seconds. We were also able to use our existing antenna. So easy to program. The online price was much better than in store. Fast delivery. The entire process and end result of this unit couldn't have been better.
Great box, does everything it's supposed to, good price too. I wish it would give info about the show we're watching, as some boxes do. But, for the price, you can't get everything, right?!?!
I have an older model flat screen TV and to our surprise it`s an analog. I hooked up the converter and it brings in all of the local stations perfectly!
Works great, easy setup, fro start to finsh took about 30 min, that included the time it took to scan for channels. I picked up like 30ish channels, still having problems picking up channel 5 in Phoenix, but Im told its the ant, which I also bought from Walmart. Its the flat black one that looks like wings.
Great products, especially for ppl on a budget. The cost of the box and the ant.. is bout the cost of cable or sat. for 1 month. Not as many channells, but I dont watch TV, much except for news and CSI, Criminal minds. Thx
If you don't want to pay outrageous monthly payments for cable or satellite services, this is the way to go. You can rent a movie. If you really look at services you're paying for it is paid programming. In this economy, we need to look at ways to save a few pennies!!!
I bought this for my daughter who can't afford cable right now. She now can watch at least our local channels. Somewhere they should write that a separate antenna is necessary because I didn't know that and had to buy 1 of those too.
My converter box arrived at my local Walmart promptly for me to pick up with no shipping cost. It was easy to install and program. It works great! I would suggest anyone using this to get a surge protector for antennas though because that's how my old one blew.
I must admit that this device lived up to what I was expecting and more. It seems to me that as time goes on since the permanent change to mandatory digital broadcasting, the devices used to receive signals have improved. Just make certain that you DON'T overlook getting a strong antenna. My suggestion is to pay the money for a good antenna and you'll never have problems.
This was purchased to replace a converter box that had already gone bad. The bad box had been purchased at walmart and I was very happy with it so I chose to go with Walmart again. It was not the same box, but I figured it would be just as good. Unfortunately it was not. There were some minor things that I could have lived with like, you could not use the remote to turn the TV on and off, the channel was displayed,but not the program, and the change in channels was pretty slow. The part I could not live with was the noisy static on the network channels. It was so loud, you could barely hear the show. We checked all the connections, but nothing fixed the problem. I am returning the product.
When I ordered the Converter box, I didn't expect much from it. I thought it would be huge and that the channels would be staticy. I was surprised to find crisp, clear pictures on the tv even with just using the old "rabbit ears" antenna. Nothing fancy. My worries about it being huge were completely wrong. It is so small , that I forget it is there. This is an excellent, top-notch converter box.
This product is needed if you don't have cable or satelite. This unit converts analog to digital.
It was hard to find a tv converter. Walmart had a good buy and it fit what I was looking for.
Call Support, described problem with device. Informed it was defective and to mail it in. Once they received it they said they tested it and it was not defective and required me to pay to have it shipped by. The 2-way shipping would exceed the price of the product and I would get my defective product back. Unit consistently drops channels between 2 and 9 even though the signal strength on channels consistently exceeded 90%
Their convoluted return policy guarantees that you will not get a positive result if you unit fails
Our family had used another brand of converter box. When it went bad, we needed to purchase a new one. This one is a thousand times better than the old one. Since we had no prior experience when we purchased the first box, we thought the reception, etc. was what is was suppose to be with a converter box. We were wrong. What a big difference a good product makes! We highly recommend this converter box to anyone who is in the market for one.
I bought this digital converter box for a TV at my work's breakroom. The box is half the size of the box it comes in, it includes a remote, RCA (red/white/yellow) cables and the instructions. You will also need to add an atenna (to the box) to get better reception of channels if the signal is not strong (I connected a dollar store atenna to it). Worth the price and, in my case, required to watch the TV.
This unit gets incredibly hot, so much that you can actually feel the heat it generates from a distance. It cuts off on its own; probably because it gets so hot. It also goes into a repeat freeze mode, sort of like a scratched record or scratched up dvd, which requires you to unplug the power and restart. The remote is also quirky; it will mute but will not control the actual sound level. When the signal is strong enough the picture is really clear and I can get more channels than I expected, but I spend too much time trouble shooting the problems. I will be purchasing a different brand from another retailer tomorrow. I don't recommend this unit. I guess I got what I paid for.
One word: GARBAGE!
Returned the product. TV reception was terrible. Bought another box at another store. It was $15 more, but so worth it.
Within 10 minutes of being hooked up this box began overheating and it shut down. I will be returning it ASAP.
