This budget-priced indoor antenna unit does the job. I received all the local HD channels available in my area with minimal adjustments to the antenna positioning.

The coaxial cable is part of the unit and cannot be removed. The cable itself is rather skinny. That being said, the unit performs, flawlessly.

I have the unit placed behind my 42" plasma with the antenna extended and hidden from view. The location of my flatscreen is top-floor of a house and about five feet from the window. I also used this unit in my bedroom and it worked, flawlessly.

I think the location of your home (relative to the broadcast towers) and positioning of the unit is what matters. Not the brand or price of the indoor antenna unit.

Update: So I moved and I'm now about 15 miles away from the broadcast tower (vs. 5 miles) and I don't get as many channels as I used to, even when I use my own tips, but it's good enough for me since we're on a budget! I now receive about 85-90% of the channels I used to receive.

I posted 2 photos with notes of how I placed the antenna behind my tv, so if you're a visual person, I hope the photos help!

Short version:

1) Go to antennaweb dot org and plug in your address to see where your TV broadcast signals are coming from.

2) Place your RCA antenna unit facing those signals, hopefully in front of a window. Minimize "blocks" between the TV signals and your antenna such as water (aquarium), thick or multiple walls, etc.

3) Hook up RCA antenna unit to your TV (or digital TV converter box) and keep the antenna unit at least 2 feet away from your TV and other electronics. You may need to place the antenna unit up high, such as on a shelf.

4) Position the rabbit ears/ poles horizontally out in a straight line. You can also try tilting them slightly up or down, but keep them mainly horizontal.

5) Turn the fine tuning knob so that it is also in a straight line parallel to the rabbit ears/ poles. You may also need to adjust it one notch over one way or the other.

6) Keep UHF "O" Shaped Ring upright.

7) Do a "channel scan" with your HDTV (or digital TV converter box). You're all set!

Long version:

I've had this antenna for many years with my old tube tv and it worked so-so but the tube tv finally died and we just switched over to a flatscreen--yay!

I just replaced a significantly more expensive Terk HDTVi indoor antenna with this simple and inexpensive RCA antenna. The Terk looked great, but had such a poorly designed base that it was nearly impossible to balance and position-I'll be sending that one back to Amazaon. I went over to my local Best Buy and found this unit, hooked it up-wala; picked up significantly MORE HD stations and this unit is stable and easy to position and move around (which is the objective in maneuvering for best reception). I'd highly recommend this unit-as far as I am concerned it does what it's supposed to do, easily outperforms (at least in my case) more expensive indoor antennas, and is just a great darn value!

I had a 46" Sony LCD TV and i was looking for decent indoor Antenna, initially I was more focusing on very expensive ones. Few days I happened to watch the local channels on my friends LCD with very simple rabbit ears antenna and amazed at the picture quality. Then I decided to look for more basic antenna's. At first I wanted to buy RCA ANT111 owing to excellent reviews, but I bought RCA ANT121 as this black color will match my TV and Home theater. Sure enough I just have to plug in the coax cable to back of my TV and I am receiving all the basic HD channels (NBC, ABC, FOX etc) in my area (Hartford, CT). The HD quality is better than what I used to get with my basic cable (without HD option). I highly recommend this, you'll not regret. Again, as anyone should know that the reception is based on the location you live. I live around 10 to 20 miles from broadcast stations.

Rabbit ears are the tried and true design that became popular for indoor TV reception 65 years ago, and this basic design still works well in the digital age. The RCA ANT121 is a slightly upgraded model from the no frills, but excellent RCA ANT110, and includes a knob to restrict/increase the signal. This is a non-amplified antenna which works fine connected to a digital TV in a suburban setting.

Just as good as any other antenna I've tried. Its not worth it to buy the more expensive ones, they all work the same. The SIGNAL STRENGTH NEVER CHANGES, that is controlled by the tower location and your location. All you can do is get a bigger antenna!!.
So I got two of these, pointed them different directions, now I get all the channels I should without having to adjust (very much) the dipoles.

I hooked this up to my HD TV in Alpharetta, GA and picked up 55 digital stations! I wondered if I'd need an amplifying antenna since I'm about 25 miles outside Atlanta, but this works perfectly. I get a great signal on nearly all of the stations, and get a particularly clear signal on the main Atlanta networks. For those wondering, of the 55 stations, most are worthless, but with this antenna I easily picked up all of the local channels including the ABC, NBC, CBS, and FOX affiliates as well as other local Atlanta stations, such as 8, 17, 30, 36, 69 ... and several I'd never heard of.

If you are thinking about getting an expensive antenna, I'd try this first to see if it does the job. For me, I have no reason to try anything else.
