Bought this several months ago just out of curiosity and maybe to hook to a spare t.v. Then came Hurricane Sandy and the 'Leaf' took on a whole new level of importance.
Fios was out - TV running via generator.
Connected the Leaf - did a 'digital' channel search
and was watching news in no time !
It wont get every single channel - and proximity to broadcast source seems to affect it of course .. but you get enough to keep you occupied !
It came up with about 27 channels fo rme - we live 10 miles from NYC so I assume this is 'best case' but this is definatley a must have for a few reasons.. One including emergencies !
Highly recommend this product !!
I haven't bought the leaf plus yet, but Karina from Mohu was very helpful in helping me chose the right antenna for my location. She even did the fool/tv analysis for me and told me the best location to place the antenna for me, it was east facing. I plan to order the leaf plus with the extention cable soon.
Thank you Karina for being knowledgable and friendly.
I was a little skeptical but nopeful when i ordered it a few weeks ago. When i hooked it up to my tv, it pulled in twice the number of channels compared to my giant ugly 4 bay antenna, even in the basement!
I went ahead and got another one for the main floor.
Got the stand and now am able to accurately aim the basic mohu panel which gave us 5 "green" identified channels ABC, NBC, CBS, Fox and PBS with their secondary and tertiary channels plus a bonus channel and its secondary that are outside the green but come in fine. Recommend you have a small weight to anchor the stand and allow you to aim the panel, we had a book case to put it onto and that did the trick. Neat prouduct, I'd like to see a heavy duty unit for the attic with splitter for multiple set use or maybe an external unit for our old tower.
I am now receiving almost all locally broadcast channels, whereas before I was only receiving a few very well, some sporadically, and the ABC affiliate not at all. I went from 4 channels to 19. I do have to reposition it to receive one channel, but that is nothing compared to readjusting the rabbit ears each time I switched stations. I recommend the Mohu antenna and have referred a couple of people already.
I love reading Home Theater magazine, and on page 18 of the September 2012 issue is a HOT review on the Leaf indoor HDTV Antenna. Five stars for value, four and 3/4 stars for performance and Features gets four stars. If you know Home Theater magazine, you know they don't toss accolades like grannies might toss popcorn to the pigeons. If they say it is great, its because they tested it and found it to be so.
Like others, I thought this product was a hoax, but found that it actually works perfectly well in our hilly area, where we were unable to get a signal from the local station. We are in a remote location, so I don't know what it would be like in a city, but we are now able to get our local station perfectly clearly! Thanks.
Mine delivered today. the hook up is easy...tape it to the wall until you find the sweet spot for your channels. Keep scanning your TV and move the antenna a little each time if you have to. But I got about 20 channels on the 3rd scan and the clarity is awesome. I wouldn't know it was from an antenna...it's giving me the same satellite quality!
I get to cancel my DirecTV at the end of the month and can't wait!
This antenna is like a breath of fresh air! It took a little repositioning to find the best location then it performed as advertised. We are about 30 miles from some transmission towers and PBS is difficult to receive due to vhf mode of broadcasting... all other channels on uhf are perfect! Thank you for a fine product at a reasonable price.
