When looking for an outdoor HD antenna to pick up local channels, I was surprised how many options and choices there were for antennas and it was just confusing. After spending days researching antennas, I settled on this antenna which had good reviews, was reasonably priced, and from the pictures made me feel like I was getting a nice-looking/sturdy antenna and not some cheap piece of plastic with some wires. I also liked the feature of the antenna to have a remote control which allows me to swing the antenna from side-to-side, which I initially thought I didn't need and felt that once antenna was installed and pointed in the right direction, that I would never use the feature. Once I installed the antenna and pointed in general direction I thought would have the best reception and avoid trees, obstacles, and got 60+ channels, I felt my work was done. This antenna was great for my purpose, and the similar/more expensive ones would likely offer same benefits/quality, but based on my research you probably won't find a much cheaper similar style antenna with similar build quality.
