A bit more complicated

 

The dish is great and easy to assemble

The difficult part is getting it to aim correctly. A must have is a Satellite Finder. I found one at Radio Shack for $39 and will only use it once but you can get one on line for a lot cheaper so plan ahead and get this before you try to set it up or...

Worthless

 

None

None of the hardware needed to assemble the dish is included in the box and it is not available for sale anywhere. This leaves you unable to connect the mounting pole or LNB assembly to the dish. Basically you are left with a gray metal serving platter...

Works Well

 

Contrary to the instructions, this dish can be tuned without a separate signal strength meter. Used GPS coordinates to get elevation,azimuth and tilt from the HD receiver. Took about 20 minutes to tune using the receiver signal strength meter and an...

Small design for a HD dish. Built-in multiswitch with 4 multi-satellite outputs. Good instructions. Well built with heavy duty hardware. Everything needed is in the box. Good signal on all satellites. Very little "fade" in moderate rain

Dish is somewhat heavy and lop sided. Monopoles may be needed depending on installation

Works as expected

 

I am in Orange County, Ca. on the 4th floor of an apartment building with fairly good visibility to the north (www.antennaweb.org). Picked up the LA digital channels (40 mils away) and many San Diego channels (60+ miles away). Antenna is behind a wall....

Came with all necessary hardware Fine tuning knobs are nice

Must buy monopoles separately but I didn't need them

Great Satellite Dish

 

I do advise that you get the "MONOPOLES for DirecTV SlimLine KA/KU 5 LNB Dish" to help secure it a little more. Even though the dish is pretty sturdy once everything is mounted, very high winds (from those 1 or 2 a year storms) could possibly affect...

Easy to mount, install, point, and lock in. Everything you need for a normal mount is right in the box. Ran all my cables from it to each of my TV's and get an EXCELLENT signal on all of them. A bad storm came in this morning with high winds/heavy rain...

None.

Newegg should review their lost item procedures. There is a shipping tracking number on this and they would know that this item apparently never left the warehouse. A replacement item should have been sent out immediately instead of taking 3 days to...

Great shipping, all the parts needed were there.

LNB or multiswitch defective, had to return the whole thing. After shipping back the product I was suppose to have been sent a replacement. The tracking information stopped at received shipping invoice. Contacted Newegg after the day it was suppose to...

Direct tv Slimline KA/KA 5lnb Dish

 

Super fast shipping, got everything I needed to set up the dish in one box.

Directv gives you degrees to set your dish to(via receiver and your zip code),elevation they gave for my zipcode was incorrect. Otherwise get your strongest inputs from the sat. and your good to go. No need for signal meter.

Great, received as advertised.

Would like a lower price, but oh well.

DirecTV 5 LNB Dish

 

Very quick shipping.

No where does Newegg mention that the dish does not come with the AZ/EZ back mount. The dish is useless without it! You have to contact DirecTV to get this. I ordered it thru Newegg so I wouldn't have to contact DirecTV.
