I live out in the boondocks; and I hate to pay for cable television. The nearest stations are thirty miles away. I first tried a $7 OTA antenna and got only one network station. Although the Curve predicted that I would not get any reception... I now have access to all major television stations (including PBS). Really a good purchase in my case. I really dislike cable companies and appreciate the ability to take back control. Very happy with the purchase.

Bought the Mohu Curve thinking it would be better than the much cheaper RCA "leaf" type antenna available at@. Hooked up to same TV and positioned in same area, same everything -- only pulls in 1/2 of the stations that the RCA antenna did. Disappointed and will be returning.

      i live in the west 50s. Placed antenna in window facing west (seventh floor). Got lots of channels, including all the major local stations (2,4,5,7,9,11,13). Reception was excellent.

            This Curve 50 antenna replaces two previous indoor antenna attempts which didn't provide all the channels in my area. This one does. Looks good and works great.

              great amplifier but you HAVE to use the cable provided in the box. The impedance must be carefully matched by the manufacturer; it doesn't perform if you try another coax.
              Great reception, significantly better than a cheaper one I got (leaf style but not mohu brand) from another store. Recommended, use it as described in the manual (aka, their coax).

              I live on a second floor in a complex of several building. Due to the useless and unnecessary costs of cable, I bet for this antenna. The signal is crisp and the amount of channels is enough for the little time one can spend watching tv in this busy city of NY

                Comments about Mohu Curve 50 Indoor Amplified HDTV Antenna:

                We bought the Mohu Curve 50 when we dropped cable tv, and have been very pleased with its range. We're picking up the major networks even in poor weather, and some stations we didn't expect to get - about 17 in all! It's easy to move when the signal isn't as strong as it could be to find a better pick-up location. I have no complaints. Would definitely recommend for anyone needing a quality antenna!

                  We are outside of the city so I needed a amplified antenna. This one promised 50 mile coverage. I pushed it's limits by the distance and the fact that I have it in the basement, below ground level. I'm getting 3 of the 4 major networks plus an bunch of small stations. I bet if I had this thing on the second floor I'd get them all.

                    Comments about Mohu Curve 50 Indoor Amplified HDTV Antenna:

                    I bought this based on the great reviews and the sleek design. The product is great and arrived very quickly but it wasn't picking up channels so I called Mohu support. She said that the the amplifier in the antenna was actually not compatible with the sort of signals my local tv stations used, so essentially I had too powerful of an antenna. Sent it back and got the Leaf 30 and am quite happy.

                      Very easy to set-up and the results are excellent. I just got rid of cable and the antenna lets me at least 10 different over the air channels.

                      Comments about Mohu Curve 50 Indoor Amplified HDTV Antenna:

                      Spending much more money than my $35 Mohu Leaf to acquire this indoor antenna is hoping that it provide me with steadier reception and a few more broadcasting channels. Well it turns out that this expensive Curve is no better that the much cheaper Leaf. At best reception wise I'd just 5-10% better. Therefore, if you live in a urban area far away from any signing transmitting towers, you may get some benefits out if it. If you live in a big city like me, forget it!
