Not Working!

 

No

Not working at all. I have regular Terk HD antenna and was hoping Rosewill can do better. However, Rosewill picks up less channals than my Terk. So don't buy it

Rosewill Amplified Digital/UHF HDTV Antenna - Indoor/Outdoor w/FM Trap Filter

 

About 45 mi from Chicago. When used inside it picked up 15 channels in HD. When mounted outside about 18' above the ground and pointed at Chicago it picked up 48 channels. Nice antenna for the price-but plan on mounting it ouside and use the FCC...

Small, easy to install, good reception when mounted outside

Short coax cable comes with it-too short for outside mount, margianl reception when mounted indoors

Consumer review by:

Pretty good antenna

 

Can use a longer co-ax cable if desired so antenna can be placed further away. Definitely needs to be powered else no virtually channels come through. Base could be more stable when freestanding but I think this is mostly supposed to be mounted

none

Works great

 

Work perfectly to catch over the air digital signals

None so far

Consumer review by:

does not work as amplified, DOA power supply

 

waste of money. spend a little bit more and get the one with better quality ratings.

works OK without power supply ; Newegg is awesome fast shipping/delivery got it within 3 days of order, used cheapest delivery option

mine had dead power supply on arrival so the antena still works but signal is weak and picture constantly freezes up. I have a Sony Bravia 46 inch screen that I bought last year. without antenna internal antena is not strong enough to pick up signal....

Digital Antenna? - No such thing.

 

I am wondering why these antenna makers are advertising their products as "Digital Antennas" when anyone who knows anything should know by now that there is no such thing as a digital antenna. Call it a UHF antenna like it should be and quit trying to...

I suppose that if you live close to the antenna farms this thing will work OK. I gave it two eggs simply because it should work as good as a simple loop antenna

It is too small to be very effective

amplified antenna

 

looks like ping pong between newegg and rosewill. it's beyond 60 days at newegg, so they say no rma... go to rosewill, they say go rma to the retailer to get warranty work.... looks like a call to newegg support !!!! lol

non. its dead in the water. no signal getting to the tv ; at all. not even ch 12, which all I need is a piece of wire to get it

What can I say.... Dead, no signal to tv, non functional out of the box

Don't trust most antenna reviewers

 

In the words of Han Solo, buying and installing an antenna "ain't like dustin' crops, boy". If you don't know what you're doing, learn about how antennas work from antennaweb or tvfool or some other online antenna primer, or find someone who knows...

This unit is fine for picking up your local broadcasts, and the price is right. Good pick-up for that relative in the city that just wants their local football games in HD without paying extra to the cable company

If you are more than 10 to 20 miles from transmitters, or have terrain issues, you need to buy a real antenna. Think roof-mounted 8-bay bowtie for UHF stations. If you have VHF channels you want to tune, you need to buy a real VHF antenna, and these...

works okay

 

I mounted it in the basement and can get okay reception with a second booster. It's quite a small antenna and only marginally better than using a simple, self-made T-antenna with amplifier.

small ; builtin amplifier ; mounting accessories

small

Got it from somewhere other than Newegg, for around the same price. Tried it on the roof, and the old rabbit ears on the second floor and indoors actually work better, which is sad. 10+ digital HD stations less than 20 miles away: the rabbit ears get...

Looks fairly nice, solid mount, not expensive

Works worse than the non-digital, indoor, Philips rabbit ears antenna I bought in 1999. Just about like having no antenna at all connected. Newegg won't let me rate 0 eggs, so their scale might as well be based on 4 rather than 5 eggs
