Summary: Works great!
I switched to antenna/streaming from Direct TV late last fall. When spring hit, and all of the trees around me started sprouting leaves, the antenna I had purchased locally at a chain store just wasnt cutting it. I was getting a lot of drops while watching programs and such, and the signal strength on my TiVo never exceeded about 64%. I upgraded to the DB2, and the signal strength jumped to about 87%, and I dont get drops in signal any more. Its a nice little antenna and Im very happy with it, especially considering the low price compared to buying something at a chain store.

Summary: Weak Strength
I have no problems with the manufacturer, seller, shipping every thing is perfect, build quality is great too. I put it up on my roof about 20 high and was not getting more than 2 signals bars on my TV. Im surrounded by trees and about 40miles away from transmitting stations. If you are in Bremerton you might want to get another antenna. BUT its a nice small antenna very light and well made, wish it had worked out. Assembly was easy right out of the box, no issues with that. connected with less and 75 of cable Thanks for reading.

Summary: Using it indoors with good results
Excellent. My setup: Indoor on bottom floor of apartment. The antenna is facing out a large window facing northeast towards Boston and I am receiving all the Boston area channels. I am using high quality coax and kept the length as short as possible. Since the channels in Boston and most in Providence are now UHF, there is no reason for a VHF antenna. I bought a bar stool, put a hole in the seat, made some other adjustments to it, and low and behold I made this to be a rotatable antenna on a bar stool in my apartment.

Summary: Does not hold up in New York winters
When first installed reception was great for 10 local stations but deteriorated within a year and lost several of the weaker signals. After troubleshooting I found that the solder joint inside the black box between the cable connector and a little circuit board broke/cracked and gave intermittent signal. Looks like the way it is constructed that the cable puts pressure on the joint. I contacted the company and they sent two of the little black boxes, with 2 circuit boards, no charge. The black box does not have a good seal so I put some plummerís putty inside the top edge to keep the water and melted snow out. Now about a year later the signal is deteriorating again. Do I want to climb a ladder, remove the antenna and change out the circuit board again? NO! This time I\ll put up a new and different antenna.

Summary: Works Great
We bought the DB2 after reading all the reviews. It was money well spent. Before with our indoor rabbit ears we couldn\t get any digital channels and only one analog channel clearly. We first tried the DB2 in the attic, but the reception was still poor. Then tried it outside in a few locations. Ended up mounting it on the end of the house near the apex of the roof (bought the J-mount) for this. Big difference. We now get all 5 of the local channels in our area crystal clear. PBS is analog only and comes in just a bit fuzzy, but the transmitter is around 200 miles away!
