Look wise, i would agree that this thing looks kinda odd compared to the mohu. So if your into your house looking beautiful and are bothered with an antenna with its ears pointed out...then this thing may not be for you. On the other hand if you dont mind that, and you instead want clear high quality channels in full HD then this product may be for you.
I also want to note that I tried the terk on a HD tv as well as a standard tv which required a converter box and getting the channels in both cases weren't a problem.
Setup wise, very easy, took less then 15 minutes to set up. It took longer for the tv to search for all the channels!
In terms of the channels, we pretty much got all the main channels and all crystal clear HD. FOX, NBC, CBS, ABC, KBHK, KICU, KOFY, KTSF (ch.26), Spanish channels, ION, etc. We were also pleased to get very unique channels such as chinese, korean, vietnamese, and even kpop specific channels. Channels like these you couldn't get with uverse or directv. Of course YMMV though, depending on location of the your house and how your pointing your antenna. sometimes you might have to adjust the direction of your antenna to get the feed that you want. but in general i think thats common for these types of antenna's.
Overall, for about 30 bucks, we were very pleased with this antenna. would definitely recommend this product for people looking to cut the cable.
Nothing wrong with that, and if other reviews hadn't put that idea in my head I probably would've rated 5 stars. It's unfair to take a star away for that... but I'm going to do it anyway!
Ok, now for the real review.
Background: I have 42" Viore LCD HD TV. I was getting free line-in cable (not digital) by accident (long story, and it was the Cable company's bad, not mine). They finally remembered they forgot to cut us off two years after we canceled and we realized our HD TV tuner needed an antenna to get any channels!
With this antenna I get about 13 channels clearly. I'm not gonna lie, one of those channels is an FM radio station without any picture at all, but it plays some groovy tunes! (This is AFTER I deleted the three annoying religious channels. If you love cheesy, bad programming with a religious twist, then you're in luck! You'll get even more channels!) Plus there are an additional 3 channels that come in real grainy. If I messed with it and moved it around, I'd probably get them better. I'm not able to place it near a window. So if you add the religious and grainy channels to the 13 good ones, I pick up 19 total.
I get the obvious ones; CBS, NBC, ABC, FOX, and PBS. Sometimes they broadcast in HD, sometimes they don't. During prime time hours they indubitably broadcast HD. I get some random extra ones I wasn't expecting like the CW and CoolTV which plays 90s music videos. There are three PBSes now, which is great if you're a nerd who loves science and history like I am.
Now, just because I had non-digital, line in cable doesn't mean I don't know what HD TV looks like. I worked for the cable company for about 6 months (before the call center environment made my head explode). I had free digital HD cable at home and it was running 24/7 on HD screens in the call center. Over the air (OTA) HD can be every bit as bright, crisp, and clear as what you get on a digital cable box, and probably MORE so.
Let me break down how your cable gets to you. It's broadcast over satellite (gasp!) and picked up by a gigantic satellite dish owned by your cable company. (It's true, if you live in Rochester you can find yours on the Time Warner premises just next to the walkway by the Genesee River). They receive that satellite signal and compress it down, then feed it through cable lines to their customers.
With OTA HD, you receive the broadcast with no middle man (the signals may be re-broadcast [repeated], but to my knowledge there is no compression). The picture is gorgeous, bright, crisp, colorful.
If you're reading this because you are looking for advice on whether or not to drop the cable company... If you have an HD TV, get yourself a good antenna for live TV and then pony up for a Netflix streaming account ($8 per month) and/or a Hulu Plus account ($8 per month), and a Roku box to stream them to your tv ($60 to $99 one time fee for the box) or watch them on your gaming console, and you're golden.
As far as THIS antenna goes... I didn't get any crazy extreme range like some other people described, but as I said, I live smack in the middle of my medium sized city. I picked up the signals I expected and a few surprise ones. Picture is excellent. I don't have to adjust or play with the antenna to get good signal. The big chunky hunk of metal is rather ugly, and it does have rabbit ears which aren't pictured. But I just shoved it out of sight behind my TV, problem solved.
It was a good decision! I was really surprised how many channels I get. I did a channel scan and got 110 channels off the bat and my tv and antenna aren't even by the window. I did temporarily move my tv & antenna next to the window where I can aim the antenna towards the broadcast towers for a quick test and got 128 channels - amazing!
I do have to adjust to get all the channels to come in but not much, for instance to get ABC I need to lower rabbit ears to horizontal and extend them out but I lose UPN. When I push the rabbit ears back in all the way, (but still down & horizontal) I get UPN but ABC gets a weak or no signal. It's not bad and I don't have to move the thing all over the place. I'll still experiment with different locations but I think I'm set for the most part. I do turn on the amplifier and it helps, I think because the antenna is not by the window. If I end up moving it to point out the window and towards the towers I may not need to use the amplifier.
OTA reception is so clear! It actually looks better than what I had through my cable so I'm real happy with this antenna.
