I have no idea whether this product works or not.

It has a notch in the back that you can use to nail it to the wall behind your TV, if you'd like.

This piece of garbage can't be assembled with the parts in the box.

Bought a $40 antenna (that would have cost $80 at local big box stores) and then decided, just out of blue, to give this antenna a shot.

I live in a smaller (200K population metro area) midwest city where the transmitters are about 15-30 miles away by air. I hooked this antenna up and my weakest signal with a Dish over-the-air box is 80% for ALL my local high def stations. This is not the ultimate antenna but it works for most applications for price (about 1/3 the cost of most you find online). Be sure to buy it online too, because it's twice as expensive at local bigger box stores.

Some comments here that the antenna has to be assembled are true. But come on, it's 3 small screws that line up with the 'wings' of the antenna - no big deal. Very simple. It also has a small hole to hang it on a hook but you can tuck this antenna away in the back of the flat panel or in the back of a cabinet very easily.

I decided to try this antenna after 4 of our major stations moved from UHF to VHF on June 12th. I had tried three other antennas:

RCA Flat Panel (white) with preamp.
Philips MANT940 (preamp), UHF only.
Philips Rabbit Ears with Silver UHF Plate and Preamp

Channels of Interest:

FREQUENCY
5.1 VHF Lo-BAND (77.25 MHz)
8.1 VHF Hi-BAND (181.25 MHz)
11.1 VHF Hi-BAND (199.25 MHz)
13.1 VHF Hi-BAND (211.25 MHz)
17.1 UHF (483.25 MHz)
19.1 UHF (525.25 MHz)
23.1 UHF (525.25 MHz)

The frequencies are listed so one can observe the performance of the antennas across the frequency spectrum, separating Lo-Band VHF from Hi-Band VHF and above.

Distance to the transmitter complex is 27 miles. Rural location. All stations are at the same site.

The Philips MANT940 would not receive the Lo-Band VHF signal on 5.1, no matter how it was adjusted. Higher frequency channels strength was solid from Channel 8.1 and above. Overall, it does an excellent job on anything but Lo-Band VHF, but for this reason it is not acceptable. As a UHF only and Hi-Band VHF it is outstanding (if mounted correctly-Horizontal, narrow part of wedge forward) This makes sense as it is rated as a UHF only antenna.

The RCA Flat Panel was very good on UHF, but a single placement could not be found for Hi-Band VHF, and it would not receive Lo-Band VHF at all. I could live with this antenna if it worked on Lo-Band VHF.

The Philips Rabbit Ears and UHF Plate antenna would not receive 5.1 Lo-Band VHF, but did a decent job on all UHF stations and was marginally acceptable on VHF Hi-Band. The MANT940 (UHF only) actually does a better job on VHF Hi-Band than this antenna does.

I bought it at Walmart for $20.00 . Originally I placed it in an upstairs bedroom I liked it good enough to replace my HD 65inch Mitsubishi's antenna philips power boasted antenna in living room I have a signal strength of 3 of 4 also the Picture looks outstanding. I need no power for it and it works well also you can,t see it on the back top of tv using a 2 inch piece of electric tape to hold it in place. I might buy 1 more for motor home. It has a specific order to place 3 pieces together its not hard to do 3 philps screws 3 nuts hold it together.

Addendum note: I keep seeing reviews that say it takes two people to put it together. I'm not sure why. I'm a 45 year old woman and all I had to do was lay everything down on a flat table surface and use an eye glass repair Phillips screwdriver to put it all together. By myself (no one else was home). Seriously? I'm not sure where this "it takes two people to put it together" is coming from. It's a little awkward, but not impossible. If you've ever fixed a computer or opened up a remote to clean the contacts, this is about as difficult. Which is not very.

Ok, first of all, let me dispel some myths:
You do NOT need a special "hdtv" antenna for an HDTV. Any old antenna from an old non-HD TV will work, as long as you have BOTH the "bunny ears" for VHF (the movable upright extendable rods) and the "circle" wire for UHF reception. Obviously, if it doesn't have the coaxial cable connection most modern TVs require, you will have to get an adapter.

The reason you need both the bunny ears and the round wire part of any old antenna is because, at least where I live (near west Chicago collar suburb), the majority of channels still labeled "2","5","7" etc on up to Ch. 13 are ACTUALLY broadcasting in the UHF spectrum of Ch. 13 and above. They keep their labels as Channel 2, Channel 5, etc. but they are no longer broadcasting in that 2-12 VHF spectrum. So that is the other "myth": that your Channel 2 is actually broadcasting at Channel 2; most likely it isn't. (Ours isn't.)

All of that having been said... this antenna works like a champ! Long story short, I spent money on an expensive antenna ($50+), which didn't work very well.

Verified Purchase
When you pull the 3 pieces of this antenna out of the box, you'll ask, "Are you kidding me? Where's the rest of it?"

I know I did. I thought it resembled a McDonald's Happy Meal toy.

BUT, this is not a negative review. This is a resounding recommendation for this antenna for receiving DTV over the air broadcasts.

The ANT1050 is an incredible value. It receives all of my local over-the-air digital television signals without a hiccup. The strength that it receives is above and beyond the much more expensive antenna I had purchased early this year. The best part is a person wouldn't even know it was there. I have it resting flat on the Plasma's wall mount behind the TV. Doesn't get easier than that.

I frankly don't understand the negative reviews for this antenna. My only guess is that many buyers didn't understand the Analog to Digital conversion, and/or hadn't properly hooked up their equipment.
