    It's very nice to have a flat antenna so it's not sticking out into the room. Having multiple ways to mount it is nice as well. It feels a little delicate, but probably better that it's lightweight since it's hanging on the wall. There seems to be a little trade off in reception for flatness compared to other antennas, but it still works well enough for me. I borrowed a different TERK antenna from my sister and her's got slightly better reception, but it was not flat.

    In the Metro-Detroit area and i get all stations broadcasting in the area using the amplifier. I can get most stations reasonably well without the amplifier, but not all and others broke up from time to time. I mounted it on the wall as close to the ceiling as i could for it to get the best reception in my apartment/living room. Took a bit of playing around holding the antenna in different spots and positions to find what worked well for all stations. I have the signal split between my TV and a MediaPC and it seems to keep signal to both well (with a quality splitter). The only thing i wish it had was a power switch on the amplifier to save power when not using it. Overall I'd recommend giving it a try.

    This product was ordered with great expectation and good on line reviews.
    But mine arrived DOA.
    I had Sony guide me through a complete system rescan and check to try to get the antennae to function but Sony said NO signal.
    So I called the TERK Tech Support Hot Line as instructed on their instructions.
    An excellent Technician guided me through a check list and then had me touch the amplifier box and when I said "room temp" he gave me an address to return it so they could provide a working amplifier.
    I am waiting with great expectation. BUT be warned you may get a dead one also.

    This product works great after a few scans from satelite dvr. First 2 scans did not pick up all available secondary channels for abc, nbc, fox & pbs. Picked up more channels scanning 2nd day of being plugged into power supply.

      I got rid of my cable/dish a while back, nothing but commercials. I bought 2 Terks prior to this that looked more like antennas and they worked fine, but I have cats. Cats like to play (with antennas). This model is much better and the the cats don't bother it.

      Works well. Receives local stations and other digital TV broadcasts in the NYC area with excellent receptions. At times reception can be a bit spotty, depending on the time of day, weather, cloud coverage with only certain channels. For the most part there are no issues. I would recommend this product if you have an obstruted view from your window. I am on the 6ht floor on the out skirts of the UWS of Manhattan, my apt faces the inner courtyard and the buildings in the area are basically the same height. Even on rainy days I have decent reception.

        I tried using this in Western Mass. and had no luck. The salesperson said it should work in the mountains, ie upstate NY. I also tried it on Long Island, in a suburb where reception should not be a problem, but it didn't work there either. B&H took it back without a problem.

              Comments about Terk Technologies FDTV1A Flat Digital Omni Directional Amplified Indoor Antenna (Black):

              This antenna works well for me in an urban apartment on the 10th floor, mounted in a window.

              The base/wall mount is easy to attach to the antenna in two different locations via threaded inserts and two machine screws. A few minutes of trying various locations and orientations quickly let me settle on the best setup for me.

              This antenna isn't as directional as another one I had. But that's really not an issue for me, as most signals are strong here. And the convenience of a small panel with no extended aerials is a delight. No fussing, no rearranging, just solid performance.

                I have always had problems getting all the local digital stations in my area without having to do the old Married With Children "Fox watching positions" but with the FDTV1A I just positioned it once, scanned and Voila! We get a lot of boomers here that interrupt satellite signal so I am now going to order two more for my other sets. Amazing product.

                  I can receive over 20 channels, half of those in HD. Just plug it in and ready to go. I placed a splitter at the end and have multiple tv's in different rooms connected to it without any impact in reception. I figure it will pay for itself in the first month now that I can stop paying for basic cable.

                      As soon as I opened the box, I could see that it was poor quality (also made in China). I wanted to replace cheap rabbit ears with this antenna, and the performance was significantly poorer. Don't waste your money on this one.

                          We live about 20 miles from the hilltop where most signals are transmitted. We have no windows facing the correct direction, so the attenna has to pick up the signals thru brick walls. Metal doors add to the challenges. This attenna picks up the signals for all available stations without physical readjustment.
                          It did take awhile to get the placement exactly right, but since then we haven't had to move it.

                            I use this antenna in lieu of cable. I get what I want off the air, and the picture quality actually exceeds that of cable...straight from the TV station to me. I get the local stations that carry all the network stuff, plus Educational TV (3 channels), Channel 21, Shopping channel, a couple of rogue channels for movies, and enough religious stuff to save me for generations. B&H service great as usual.

                              I was skeptical whether it would work. I live on the ground floor of a building located in somewhat of a valley. After positioning it several ways I'm able to get 11 channels... all the locals and several others... all in HD! It seems to work best in the horizontal position.

                                It is very easy to hook up and can be kept vertical or horizontal. Small footprint and easy on the eye. As some others had remarked, it is very light and topples over easily. The picture quality on our TV improved dramatically. We did not get any additional channels but that is fine. Certain channels are not viewed well when there is a thunderstorm, hence the 4 stars instead of 5.

                                  This is the 2nd one that I have purchased from you and it is great. You shipped it like the speed of light and I would purchase again. No problems with me & have had a week signal only if was stormy or a lot of wind outside but this is not frequent.

                                  Is more attractive then other brands & not unsightly.

                                    I use this antenna with my Audiovox 9" under cabinet TV and it performs exceptionally well. The reception is pretty good but when I put it near a window I received 7 more TV stations after I re-scanned my channels. I used this unit to replace an RCA antenna and there is no comparison. I am satisfied with this antenna and I like the quality and value it delivers.
