The rotator works as expected. The programmable feature is nice, you have plenty of presets available. There are a few setbacks.
1. If you press a number you haven't preset the antenna will turn all the way back to zero. (Make sure to program ALL the presets if you don't want it to turn to zero.)
2. If you do make a mistake by pressing the wrong number there is no way to stop the rotator until it gets back to zero or whatever preset number you had selected.
Other than the above, I haven't had a problem. It was easy to install, the direction were easy to follow but a little vague in some areas. Overall, I am pleased with it.
Product poor quality and worked intermittently.
The motor is poorly constructed and stopped working after only a few months
Quality is excellent and it works fine for well balanced reasonable size arrays. I like this one better than its similiar competing units like Radio Shack and Channel Master, its cheaper and I think better than either of the other two. As you would expect of a rotor in this price class, it does not have any mechanical brake so its not suitable for large off balance arrays in high winds. Easy to hook up and use with three conductor cable.
the unit works okay,the description is very poor,I had no idea if you needed to also buy rotator cable or not until I got it,Yes you do
I have used it for 2-3 weeks so time will tell how good it is
connections at motor unit not up to standard. wire screw connections loose. screws would not back off.made it work.
I placed this unit on my antenna 18 months ago. The unit locked up and had to be replaced. Spend an extra $20 and buy a good one it is not worth replacing in 18 months.
I purchased about a year ago, but not long after I put it up it would not turn. I got some one to get on my roof to check it, and all he did was help it to turn. Then it worked. It worked good for a while. However if it sat for about 10 days with out being used, it will stop turning. Then I have to get some one up there and move it. It will then work as long as I remember to turn it every now and then. However, if I forget. I am stuck where it is until I change it again.
Straight out of the box it didn't work! Called Philips they said they would send a replacement out in 20 days! So I returned it back to the store! I guess you get what you pay for.
My Husband had some difficulty installing it,, but was able to finish in one afternoon. Have only been using it for about 2 weeks so do not know a lot, but so far it is working ok.
the product works good but the instructions on how to set up and operate are not to clear had to reset and figure out on my own but works good and love th remote
a little too complicated for the average bear, didn't really need the remote control model, but it was on hand and I got it right away. price was very reasonable. Have not installed it yet due to bad weather, so I can't comment on how it works.
You have to buy cable,ect. to hook the Philips Programmable antenna up. I did not know this untill i got it home, took it out of the box and read the booklet. I also was thinking will i beable to get the antenna to move in the winter when we have ice stormes. No need to have something that you can not get to move if it is all iced up. So i took the antenna back to Wal-mart
Product worked out of the box without any problems. It is easy to use and change antenna locations.
great product, hooked up easy, set up easy, was getting 1 channel mostly clear and 3 others very snowy, now getting 7 channels crystal clear and a few others a little snowy. Money Well Spent
great product. A very hard to find item that works better than you expect. Can`t find anywhere else at a better value.
My old rotator broke and I installed this new one.. works great at a decent price.
It is a great value for a basic item. Not a lot of "bells and whistles" - but it does what it is supposed to - rotate an antenna. ;-) Easy to install and wire. Works great.
Everything works great, and was the best price I could find!! The programable remote to turn the antenna is the best way when tuning stations from differnt directions. I love this rotor!!
This product and a new updated antenna are great with the update to Digital Signal change.
We receive all our tv programs via external antenna and live in the Adirondack Park in NY which has alot of trees. We are receiving digital tv signals and have the converter box and 2 new tvs, but we had to constanly go ourside to turn our antenna everytime we change channels. Now we just press the stored memory button and it go right to the correct setting. The unit is very easy to use and program. One note is to read the enclosed manual COMPLETLY before installing, the rotor needs to be synchronized on the ground before installing on the roof, which is step 4. Over all we are very happy with this purchase.
