While this antenna costs much less than many of it's competitors it is made of good quality materials and is well constructed. I am a HAM and have built and purchased many antennas over the years and I can assure you this is one is well worth the money. I was able to receive over a dozen different digital stations from my location in the suburbs even from inside the house, although the ultimate location is up on the roof (I have plenty of masts to bolt it to). Also, unlike many of the yagi type HD antennas out there, this one is not very sensitive to the pointing direction. It will pull in all signals within about 120 degrees of where it's pointed, so if all the digital signal sources are not clustered within 20 degrees of each other in your location, this is the antenna for you. Even if you have cable TV like me, it's still nice to have an alternative should the cable go out. I have also found that the over-the-air signals are much less compressed than over the cable, so I tend to watch sports and such using the antenna whenever I can since there's less smearing and pixelation.
