Questions and Answers
placed directly behind my tv but there are times when I need to move it closer to a window to get better reception.
PROS: Small and unobtrusive, good performance and so far no issues.
CONS: None yet
I received this unit in return for a fair review.
All I can say first and foremost, this arrived at perfect time. The final Nascar race of the season was coming up and I cut the cord a long time ago with providers. So I was considering bugging a friend to watch it or maybe even local bar or something. A simple unpack, hook up and boom... Nascar in HD on my TV! Sweet!!!! Ok now that that exciting part for me is over, I'll tell you how I found the performance of this unit to be.
My Auto Tune detected 47 DTV signals in my area. After flipping through them, only about half were actually channels on air. But as promised, I was able to received Station emitting HD quality picture. The furthest station from house is 14 miles and there is a major airport right in-between us. I was able to get their station clear. As with the old rabbit ears, a little turn here and there of the antenna can make all the difference.
The antenna is the same size as a normal 8x11 piece of paper. It has a nice small round base that the antenna is secured to by sliding it in the slot in the plastic. It comes with close to 10' of antenna cord, so it does offer some option for placement. Velcro stick pads or base...there shouldn't be anywhere you can't place it effectively.
Simply screw the antenna into your TV where your antenna input is. It maybe marked as cable or dish input. Run a channel scan if your TV has the capability and boom, you'll have some HDTV IF, and this is a big IF your local area provides it. I'm happy with the quality of the picture I can get on my 1080p set, and it reminds me why I cut cable in the first place...too many darn commercials!!! One thing to note, it does require pretty much "line of sight". A person walking past with a cell phone did cause the picture to pixelate for a sec , then return to normal.
For the money, you can't beat it if you want your local (if provided) HD channels. It's worth picking up in my opinion. This unit is going to the mother in law, but think I'll buy 2 more for rest of my house.
PROS: small, stylish, decent antenna cord length
CONS: lightweight, so can be moved by ceiling fan if it's pushing enough air. Recommend some sort of anchoring if using just the stand.
PROS: Small size, easy to use and install.
Gets great HD picture.
CONS: No wall mount options for it or way to hide behind wall mounted TV. You could probably come up with way to make it happen since its so small and lightweight.
PROS: i got many channels!
crystal clear HD
CONS: Visible wire from connector but, who cares because its in my garage.
PROS: Easy to hook up, cheap and works great
PROS: Low cost - low risk, black (aesthetically pleasing), long cord, great reception
CONS: None so far
PROS: Easy to mount on wall or in stand. Very unobtrusive if hidden correctly. Since it is so lightweight and small very easy to work with.
CONS: None that I can think of.
PROS: Lightweight,black color blends in well with most decor
CONS: You will need a newer tv that can accept digital tv signals to fully utilize these antennae. Older TV sets will need a converter box in order to get video thru into ant in jack on tv
First, this thing looks great. It looks nice next to my TV in its base and doesn't look out of place where I felt i needed to hide it. Since it's black and glossy, it matches the small bezel around the TV. Setup was a piece of cake, plug it in, put it in the base, position it where you want to (if you don't have to 3m it to the wall) and run the setup on the TV. In a matter of minutes I was flicking through approximately 35 channels (NYC area). GREAT pictures quality and good sound. I am glad that Monoprice offered this just as I had begun my search for a decent antenna. This exceeded my expectations
PROS: All black
Long enough cord
CONS: None - accept that the shipping option I chose was more expensive than the price of the antenna but not really a con.
