This antenna has an 18-foot coaxial cable which in my opinion has a great effect as to where to place it. It gives options as to where to place it for the best reception. I placed it near my window, in front of my desk, and crystal clear channels, and the color is in fact HD or better. There were no dropouts at all over the 29 channels we got. We were more than satisfied with the channel lineup.
Pros and Cons:
Bottom Line: Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
