Bottom Line:   
These reviews are confusing! I'm looking for Terk TV 50 reviews and some of the reviews are for other Terk models. Since some of the bad reviews don't specify which model, I don't know for sure if anyone had a bad experience with the Terk TV 50.

This is for the Terk TV42 that clips onto a small satellite dish and is powered by the sat. receiver. I tested it against the dipole rabbit ears that came with an old RCA TV and the rabbit ears out performed it on all channels in my area, even UHF. This thing is total junk. If you want to receive nearby UHF stations get a Radio Shack double bowtie, cat# 15-623 for $18. It performs at least 10x better than the TV42.

Bottom Line:   
In stark contrast to the other reviewers, my experience with the Terk TV50 has been very positive. I live about 18 miles from the TV transmitter towers located on Queen Anne hill in downtown Seattle. From my 3rd story apartment, the reception is strong, with little if any multi-path distortion (Ghosting) and beautiful color on channel 4 (KOMO, the ABC channel) 5 (KING, the NBC channel), 7 (????, the CBS channel) and 9 (KCTS, the PBS channel). On some of the channels, the reception approaches the quality of cable TV image, which was very hard to believe.

I must profess that I feel my positive experience with the Terk TV50 may well be a solid function of my reasonably close proximity to the transmitter towers and my relatively high positioning in the building. However, that being the case, the TV50 performs orders of magnitude better than my now-retired rabbit ears.

I think the TV50's a solid product and well worth a look for those interested in upgrading from their rabbit ears. Of course, you'll have to accommodate its largish array in your living room. Or, you could use the included hardware to move it outside or into the attic. Either way, this unit really delivers, and if you're a good bargain hunter, it can be had for less than half MSRP, which really sweetens the deal.

Oh, VERY good FM reception, too.
