WINEGARD SS-3000 VHF UHF Amplified Indoor TV Antenna

 

Worthless!! I bought it to, hopefully, bring in 2 additional channels for my Mother's TV. Not only is this antenna a cheap piece of plastic, it actually reduced the number of channels she could receive from 14 to 8. And the 14 channels she did receive...

Since it almost entirely plastic, it is light weight

It doesn't even receive the channels available within 20 miles

Consumer review by:

not great at all

 

Bought this a while ago and finally decided to give it a review (I am throwing the thing out). Not worth a buy. All the people saying that this doesn't improve reception are right. What a waste of my money :/

It is somewhat easy to assemble

It can't stand on flat surface because there's a thick coax cable coming out from the center of its base. There are no mounting holes so you can't put it on the wall ; I don't know why people say it looks good. It's huge and requires 3 (!) coaxial...

Meh

 

I live in Brooklyn Heights in a building facing southwest, in the middle of a block. Back when TV was all analog, I would get all the channels, just less clear on some. When things went digital, when the signal is weak, it would just blink in and out....

Works. Comes with its own signifal amplifier (which must be plugged into a power socket)

Doesn't really work all that much better than rabbit ears. You still need to turn the thing this way and that. Since it's mounted on a stand, you actually have LESS freedom to position and angle it than rabbit ears

Worse than rabbit ears

 

The unit is all plastic, very light and feels flimsy. Very easy to knock over. I should also mention that there is a large tree in front of my home and a large cylindrical water tower about 1/4 mile away, both in the direction I need to point the...

Looks kinda neat

It performed worse than a pair of amplified rabbit ears for me. I live in a suburban area just outside our city limits and can't pick up the digital signals very well. Since I was able to pick up some of the stations with a regular antenna, I was...

Nothing

 

None

In a major city, I got absolutely no usable signals

Now I'm a believer

 

Great reception, just check antennaweb.org for the compass directions and point it. I live on the first floor of an apartment building surrounded by other buildings, and I get crystal clear reception of ALL the major networks in HD. I didnt believe i...

To get the best reception you do actually have to point it in the right direction, which kind of sucks for aesthetic purposes, but I just leave it in the closet and then pull it out and put it on the table when I need to

It Works

 

This powered unit works better than I expected. Receives almost all digital channels at greater than 85% signal. I live in a dense urban area in the shadow of many large buildings. This unit does what it claims.

Easy assembly and hookup. Pulls in more OTA digital channels than I expected

Large, strange looking device. Looks like a prop off Lost in Space

TOP INDOOR TV ANTENNA

 

If you are in a city with stations this will help. if there are no stations and you hope this will make there be some it wont do that. its best function is separating signals and picking the strongest one to use. It has been able to get a signal from...

This is the best antenna for indoor, apartment living I have used. It is at its best in the city or where there are mulit and reflected signals. The funny looking scatter shield on it makes it work better than the Shack, Terk, Phillips, RCA name it I...

Someone else mentioned the instruction "manual" or few pages of rather confusing pictograms . but there really isnt too much difference between doing it the way the instrucions might want you to and the way you pick. It is also ungainly and hard to...

great product

 

It's advertised as HD but there isn't such a thing. An antenna is an antenna.

works great indoors

somewhat large and hard to place in a location out of the way
