It also looks very good, and is well built.

Philips SDV2750 By using the signal strength meter on my HDTV, the MANT940 was the only one to receive at least 80% on all relevant stations.

Seems like you have to move the antenna around for different channels, hard to find one spot that will pick up every channel.

Verified Purchase
I purchased this antenna at Walmart because of its small foot print and low price. I had previously used a Winegard ss-3000, which is probably the best indoor HDTV antenna around, but it measures 27 inches across. The Phillips antenna does OK with analog signals, but does require careful use of the gain and amplifier to receive digital signals. In fact, I had to use the low amplifier settings and near the lowest gain on the UHF signals (HDTV) to recieve all of my local channels that were digital signals. Also, I found moving the UHF head to a horizontal position, not the verticle position shown in the product photographs, gave the strongest signals. You may also want to retract and push down the rabbit ears when watch HDTV, as they seem to lessen reception. If you TV has a digital strength meter, that is a big help in the fine tuning the Phillips antenna. The Winegard and this antenna are both directional, so you must direct it at the transmission source for best reception.

The #1 thing about this antenna is: the UHF part (the flat panel) can be turned up to 90 degree left and right. This is a must adjustment to get all digital stations 40 miles away.

Of course the 24GB amplification really helps a lot. There are two gain controls; one for VHF and one for UHF. There is also a switch for high gain and low gain. There is a power switch too. Seems Philips was trying to make this a high-end unit with full of controls.

The black rabbit ears look and feel superb, love them, much better than chrome. I don't pull them out though (what a pity), because I'll lose some channels.

In comparison, the Philips MANT510 sold in kmart is a crap. Although claimed to be 50dB amplified, it gets no station.

I've tried several antennas, this one is the only one gets all my stations, all at "good" signal level out of excellent, good, fair and bad. I use it with my newly purchased Haier HLT71 7" TV, love both of them.

Cable and dish companies will be in trouble. With such a good antenna to get all the digital channels in superb image, why people still want to pay for watching? My local stores are all running out antennas as the digital transition is approaching.

I'm an OTA person, feeling its simply not in my makeup to pay for tv :) I have been using rabbit ears and a bowtie for the past many years (I live in a metro area (Col's OH) and the fartherest station I wish to receive is about 30 miles away. (all this info can be obtained at tvfool.com) and I could get a pretty good preview of what was to come for the "digital revolution".

It is of note that I also moved to an apartment from a house (located about 3 blocks apart) It's clear that this apartment (one among several 4 families in the area and all 2-3 story cinderblock, brick, and plaster construction. It is pretty clear that reception here is poorer than it was at the house. A large power substation is also about 3 blocks away.

Since I have purchased a converter box for my old 20 yr old tv set , I am now viewing digital tv (Zenith DTT901 apparently no longer available). While browsing Walmart I bought this (Philips) on a lark since it was the only one they had in stock, and I had noted that tv reception was mediocre at best since my "going digital". I get all the stations I want with just the rabbit ear/bowtie setup, but they are highly variable.. coming and going .. and high humidity or precipitation causes lots of problems. When they are good, they are great (digital is much improved picture.. but its very unforgiving of "marginal" reception.. while the old analog was quite viewable even if reception was poor)

I expect that these issues are not the fault of this antenna rather than my situation (but I expect I am quite representative of urban dwellers). So the best I can say is to research your situation as best you can before spending your money (or expect to try a few solutions)

This unit did absolutely nothing to help in my reception.

I recently tried five different antennae and found the Philips MANT940 to be the best of all five.

I compared it to the GE 24775, the RCA ANT537, Philips SDV2750, and the RCA ANT 1450. If I was giving a ranking for the five, it would be as follows:

1. Philips MANT940
2. RCA ANT 1450
3. GE 24775
4. RCA Ant 537
5. Philips SDV2750

By using the signal strength meter on my HDTV, the MANT940 was the only one to receive at least 80% on all relevant stations. I had chosen a location near a window in my garage and placed all antennae there and compared their performance. The top three I listed above all performed adequately, so I moved them to a place where I would mount the MANT940 between two windows.

Upon comparison of those three in the best window location, I found that the MANT940 had most channels in the 90-94% range and one channel at 80% while most of the channels on the other two were in the mid 70's to mid 80's.

I am in northern suburb of Atlanta, GA and found that the only channel that I wanted that no antenna would pick up is the NBC affiliate, WXIA.
