  • David Stodola - Great antenna for longer range UHF/VHF or moderate range in attic. Great quality as well.

    I live 25mi outside of Chicago and says I should get a max of 64 digital channels. I ordered a Lava Electronics HD-2605 UHF/VHF HDTV Antenna with Remote Control and mounted it in my attic. I was only able to get about 3 channels when pointed at the optimal angle with and without the LNA. This seemed just terrible to me even though it was in the attic and not not the roof so i pulled out the old bunny ears and got pretty much the same channels. I immediately returned the HD-2605 and ordered a Televes DAT790 LR Mix UHF/VHF Long Range Antenna (149881) which has half the claimed range of the HD-2605 but more believable specs. I assembled it and hooked it up to the exact same cable and setup in the attic and immediately got 59 channels (without the amplifier). I'll probably add the amp later when I hook up additional TVs but this is a MUCH better antenna. And the build quality was night and day as well. The Lava HD-2605 was cheap fragile plastic and many of the elements did not even touch via metal only plastic; they seem to be for show. The Televes DAT790 (149881) build is mostly metal and will hold up to the elements much better. It is much larger but not as big as the old antennas you see on roofs. All in all these cost the same and I felt ripped off by the HD-2605 even before i realized it only gave me ~3 channels. The DAT790 is better in every way and you can't argue with 20x more channels. Maybe the HD2605 would have been better but was DOA, but if that is the case they need better quantity control, i wasted a lot of time with it before switching to the DAT790.

  • Timothy Cregan - Very cool, just trying to optimize display

    The monitor is sexy. In so far as a monitor candy. It is bright and clear and very professional looking. The speakers are subpar but if you're looking for any kind of entertainment you should have external speakers anyway. I only have one concern and I'm trying to work through it. Because of the very wide width of this monitor, many of the webpages and forms I filled out during the course of my job or a little blurry. Trying to figure out the resolution. Other than that it is a great monitor

  • Matt L. - Good product, good price.

    The cup is everything I wanted so far. Easy to clean, and great hot/cold container. "no spill" lid not necessary if I would do it again.
