    I use the Terk antenna with my LCD TV. Reception is great, the best I have ever had at my location. This antenna is somewhat expensive, but so is a LCD TV. In my opinion for the reception you get, this antenna is well worth the money. The set up of this antenna is rather straight forward. However, the size of this antenna, (with the rabbit ears fully exteneded is atleast 5' wide), makes it hard to place in a small room You almost need a seperate stand to place it on. My recommendation is to place this antenna on a LCD TV in a living room.

    Overall, I was impressed with what this antenna could pull with the amplifier turned on. We are out in the country and get about 17 channels.

    Anyway, this antenna is needy. In addition to needing almost constant adjustment (since our stations are coming from different towns all around us), the base and balance of this thing is always a little off where it should be.

    On the other hand, our neighbor doesn't get but about half of the channels we do. That ratio is about the amount of extra channels we get when scanning with vs. without amplifier, ...SO, maybe the amplifier is the real asset here.

    Results will vary with these things, but my suggested starting point is to go online and plug your address with a site that maps the signals available to your location, then tailor the antenna to your needed coverage.

              I live 20 minutes west of Toronto. I tried the RCA ANT1450BR(amplified),Mohu The Leaf Indoor Antenna (non amplified) and the NorthVu NV20 Pro Amplified Antenna. I received 9 channels with the RCA, 10 channels with the Leaf, 8 channels with the NorthVu and 12 channels with the Terk. Terk was the clear winner. Still no substitute for a good quality outdoor antenna but for indoor this might be one of the better ones out there. Recommended.

                      I originally purchased the flat white RCA antenna. I was able to pull in 3 of the 5 basic cable stations in my area. It was football season when I purchased it so Fox and CBS were most important to me. I purchased this unit and did not receive any new stations until I moved it to a bay window. I am able to grab stations about 25 miles away with few issues. This is my first attempt with a HDTV antenna and I am pleasantly surprised. I have it on a ground floor bay window and can watch ABC, CBS, NBC, Fox, some ION channels and a PBS station. With Hulu plus, this is all I need. Unit is not very attractive, and there is no way to easily mount it to anything which means it has to sit in the open and be an eyesore.

                            The Terk HDTVA is our third indoor television antenna ~ without a doubt it is the best of the three. In rural Kentucky our television signals are a mixture of VHF and UHF frequencies with transmitters located 30 to 46 miles from our home. The Terk HDTVA pulls all of them in without fail ~ even low power translators located in Evansville, Indiana! Remember that all indoor television antennas should be placed away from metal objects and close to a window facing the majority of your region's television transmission towers.

                            The antenna is used for a small TV set and is useful for pulling in channels in the area. It is surprisingly effective in getting some obscure area channels. It does require occasional manual adjusting.

                                  i switched from cable tv to satellite. a lot of people have been suggesting that they add a certain station to their programming list. since this is a local channel in most areas it did not seem like much of a request.

                                  i like the satellite picture and channel selection, but i want this station. this antenna allows me to get the channel which i use to watch 60 % of my programs.

                                  i get all the local channels from this antenna and do not have to pay additional fees for what should be free.

                                  and best of all, i did not have to climb up on the roof to attach it.

                                  this is a real bonus since my wife sold all my ladders after i used one and fell from the roof.

                                  with this antenna, the sky is literally the limit.

                                  Better then the flat HDTV antennas by RCA. Still affected by windy weather if not at a high elevation. Amplifier does boost signal strength on clear days. The nice thing is you really don't need to extend the VHF rabbit ears.

                                        The antena really made a differece, but the design really is bad. The base is not big enough so it keeps tipping over and after a week, it broke. I will be coming back to return it.

                                          very easy to hook-up and functions just as i hoped.
                                          i'm not a big tv watcher. if you're on the fence whether to get cable, this more than satisfies my tv urges, without the monthly bill for a bunch of cable channels I would never watch.

                                            I live 42.5 miles from Chicago's antennas and i get all stations cleanly. Channel 2 has two to three bars less than the others but that is due to the antenna being slightly off target. Overall 1080i is amazing. I have now purchased one for my parents as they just picked up their own HDTV. Definitely a great product. I installed mine in my attic and had to add an outlet to the attic junction box to support the adapter that came with the antenna.
