Ditto what Christine said on her review dated 3/31/13. The ONLY issues I have are 1) I do have to point the antenna north here in Los Angeles to get a strong signal for channels 2 and 9 and 2) I do have to tack it up high on the wall to get a strong signal. But since channels 2 and 9 are both broadcast from the top of a big hill in North Hollywood, and I live in South Los Angeles, I would expect to get a better signal from a north facing antenna. And I would expect the higher I place the antenna the better the reception.
All in all, the Mohu Leaf is worth the money and I will be recommending it to my friends.
Recently ordered the Leaf from the Mohu website and it arrived early! The website is informative and helped me decide that this is the product to fit my needs. I especially liked reading the other customer reviews and pictures. The Leaf arrived early and set-up was super easy. Pushpins were included and I simply tacked it on the wall and connected the wire. I referenced my TV manual to figure out the channel scan, and after that I was ready to go. The Leaf works well and I've been recommending to friends. Thank you for helping me "cut the cord" from the typical cable providers!
Like everyone else my cable/satellite bill was out of control. I stumbled on an ad for the Leaf and was very skeptical, but I ordered it. I was very nervous about "cutting the cable cord", but I hooked up the leaf antenna and wow! I have all of my local digital channels and then some. 42 channels that come in as clear as cable ever did! I added a couple of the most popular video streaming sites and for less than $20 a month I have everything I had with satellite. There is no going back.
I highly recommend the Mohu Leaf- it is amazing!
I hate writing reviews, so I'll be brief. I was skeptical about this antenna, having tried one of the brand name HDTV rabbit ears products a couple of years ago. That one was just too difficult to tune in--very temperamental about placement and weather.
I've had the Leaf about a month now and I am loving it. I live just west of Winston-Salem and get the 4 primary channels (NBC, CBS, etc.) plus MeTV and PBS in addition to some 5 or 6 other things I don't care about. I don't watch sports at all, so this is just perfect for me. The picture is outstanding on all channels, especially when it's in HD. Placement was a snap. I hung it directly behind my Samsung plasma at first, but just for fun I transferred it to the interior wall to the left of the TV and, Pow!, everything snapped into place. I just love it when a reasonably priced, innovative product like this makes life better. A big Way-to-Go to the Mohu people.
I just received the leaf antenna today and am amazed at how clear the channels are. I get all of the local channels now not just the ones that DirecTV provides. Now, I can get those channels (only ones I watch anyway) without any blackouts which DirecTV has had 2 in the last 4 months where they were haggling over the price with the local networks. The reception seems to be higher than via DirecTV and now I can cancel my DirecTV and save almost $1000 per year.
I bought 2 Mohu antennas, one for each T.V.,with the hope that I could get at least a couple local channels where I live out in the country. I'm about 25 miles from the closest tower. Much to my surprise I got 10! And 8 of those are in HD! Only had to move the one in the living room once to get all the channels. Just find the ONE spot and you're done!
I've got DirecTV, but it's so expensive, and I rarely get my monies worth in the Spring and Summer when I'm outside most of the time.
Now I can deactivate it for 6 months and save $600 a year and still keep up with everything local.
This antenna is nothing short of AWESOME!
This is a combined review of the Leaf and Leaf Plus Antenna. Last month, I ordered a Leaf from gomohu.com and earlier this month I ordered a Leaf Plus from amazon.com. I changed the locations of both antennas a few times and that did make a difference in the number of channels which I received. I have the Leaf connected to a Digital to Analog Converter Box which is connected to a Samsung 40 inch TV and the Leaf Plus is connected to four DVD Recorders. I tested the two antennas today, at the same time, by connecting both of them to separate Samsung TV’s, the 40 and a 32 inch, using identical Digital to Analog Converter Boxes. I started a new setup on both converters at the same time. The leaf found 64 channels and the leaf plus found 66 channels. Many of the channels I would probably never watch. Some are Spanish channels and some are radio channels. I checked the signal strength on several channel numbers on both converters at the same time. The signal strength on all the channel numbers was from 5 to 10 points higher on the Leaf Plus than it was on the leaf. As an example, the three local NBC channels in Las Vegas have some of the weaker signals. The signal strength fluctuates a bit and the highest on the leaf was 71 and on the Leaf Plus it was 81. The signals on the stronger channels were basically five points higher on the Leaf Plus than on the Leaf.
The reason I decided to buy the Leaf Plus was because I had the Leaf connected to four DVD Recorders and I lost the NBC Channels to all four recorders. I saw the Leaf Plus advertised and decided to order it because the signal is amplified. Basically I am satisfied with both antennas and am considering cancelling my cable TV and using local channels and Hulu Plus and Netflix to replace the cable. The cable monthly price has increased by 50 percent in the past ten years and is probably ready to increase again in the near future. An increase is usually by around 6 percent. I can save over $40 a month by cancelling the cable and subscribing to both Hulu Plus and Netflix. I could use the $40 for other things.
I couldn't be happier. I've bought a lot of antennas and boosters over the years trying to get a local T V picture to no avail. We had to get our local channels off the dish with no H D. Now we get every available local channel as clear as day. I'm probably going to buy the longer range model for up at the lake as soon as we open the cottage this spring.
I received my Leaf antenna and hung it up about three weeks ago. I have changed its location a few times and at one point received 67 channels. In the current location, mounted in a corner with the center pointed towards most of the local transmitters, I am receiving 65 channels. I am running it through a converter, for older TV's and have a better picture on most channels, than I have with the cable. I did have it connected to some recorders and was recording local stations, but then lost one of the major network channels, just to the recorders. I still receive that channel through the converter to my TV. I have been here for over thirty years and that one network channel has always been weak, even with the cable. I am thinking of buying a Leaf Plus, subscribing to Netlflix and cancelling my cable, the price of which goes up every year or two and is now over $61.00 a month here in Las Vegas. Less than ten years ago, when I first subscribed to the internet, my total monthly bill for both the cable and internet was less than eighty dollars a month. They increase the price every year or two and now it is over one hundred and eighteen a month, close to a fifty percent increase. I know I could use the extra fifty plus a month, and still watch the programs I normally watch, by using the combination of local channels and Netflix.
As many have stated I have tried all kinds of indoor antennas. I even contructed my own. They all suffered one flaw. They needed constant adjustment after changing channels. Some channels just would not receive well. Also, those antennas are very limited as to where one can mount or sit them.
The Leaf is a whole new ball game! It is so thin I simply taped it to my window. It never needs adjustment. It pull in even the weak stations. The picture is crytal clear. My local stations are 18-25 miles away. There is no need for an amplifier. What more could I want? I cancelled my satellite subscription. Now I only rely on the Leaf, internet TV, and netflix. All this and I still save big money every month without that satellit bill droping by every thirty days. Oh yes, the picture does not cut out when it rains as with satellite.
