It seems to me that the point of having an amplified antenna is when you are running a length of coax to the antenna. Therefore, the connector on this antenna should be female not male. If you plan to run coax, be sure you have a female to female coupler.
PROS: Small and convenient, good reception
CONS: Connector is male BNC, when female makes more sense.
This one wasn't a whole lot different, except it's designed for outdoor use too. I picked up a long coax cable along with it and easily found a spot where all stations tune in extremely well. And it's so small and discrete, I didn't even have to climb the roof, I just ran it along a deck rail away from the house. It's really, really small - smaller than any remote control I've seen.
I've never found any particular antenna design or technology to make much difference in reception - for me, finding the best position for the antenna has been more important. I think this one is ideal for that - very small, inconspicuous design, and amplified so you can run it on a long cable. And a great price here.
CONS: Still needs to be set in a good location
PROS: Simple and reliable
PROS: Antenna worked well
CONS: wish it pulled in a few more of the channels in the area
cat ate the cord. not a con of the antenna
PROS: First: people need to understand that digital signals are erratic and prone to interference from most anything, overhead neighbor, gardener equipment, wind, jet planes, helicopters, etc. Interference rarely fault of indoor antennas, distance from broadcast towers is. I'm 28-miles from towers & was surprised that tiny antenna pulls in most available signals in ground floor apt. It's small & compact, comes with needed powered amplifier, & easy to keep out of sight. For the price, you can't go wrong.
CONS: nothing yet....
PROS: Very nice no noise,Pictures as good as cable.works best on the newer tvs any model.
CONS: None as of yet
PROS: Antenna works very well both inside and outside.
It is small and easy to connect.
