Pros -Ease of Assembly
Cons -Large unit--difficult to "hide" for indoor use
-missing indoor base mount (didn't need as I mounted outside
Summary I live 10 miles northeast of downtown San Diego and I pulled in HD stations over 130 miles north and 30 miles south (VHF). I was going to be satisfied if I pulled in stations within 15 miles distance--this thing outperformed all expectations. After doing a "channel scan" I picked up 12 analog and 29 digital channels! The lowest strength level is 86%, several achieved 98-100%. I have noticed if you get at least 70% you rarely get "pixalization". Purchased my unit at Costco for $59.99 (before sales tax).
Pros I received it FREE because of a TV Station Sponsored Give-Away.
Cons It has only mediocre reception. I have to wait in line 2.25 hours, early in the morning. If you were to Really have to pay $99.00.
Summary The antenna did not come with all the necessary pieces to properly assemble the unit (there was no base for the unit which is listed as a part). The reception quality is not as broad as the Manufactures tellings in-fact the reception is less than the broken TERK that I have been using for the past 6+ years. The representative for ANTENNAS DIRECT told me that these were NOT refurbish units but upon receiving the Unit the box CLEARLY is marked "B STOCK" and upon opening the box one could easily and clearly see that the unit has been used by the scratches and dings on the unit.
Even though the assembly is extremely basic and easy, the written and pictured instructions are off enough to confuse someone who may NEED to follow instructions.
For someone who does not have a HD Antenna, the Clearstream2 may be a good starter antenna but i dare say it is worth $99.00.
