Would have given it 5 stars had it not been for all the “I received a discount for my honest review” crap.

Ok, in spite of the mixed reviews, I purchased this to use with a projector that I also purchased on Amazon. I had low expectations, but to be honest, this thing works great for me. It took all of 10 minutes from the time I opened the box, until I was watching tv. It picked up 28 channels, which is actually better than my new tv did! The on-screen guide is great, and so far, all of the functions work just fine. Yes, the remote is a bit screwy, but you’ll learn the buttons you will use after a little bit. The picture is very clear, there is NO lag at all, and the setup is very easy, with a very good menu system. Really, for $22, I am more than happy, IT WORKS! And no, I didn’t get a discount for writing this, I’m writing this because for me, it was a great deal.

Make sure you have a storage device with fast write speeds for recording (UPDATED)

UPDATE: turns out that I needed a USB stick with faster write times. I got a new USB 3.0 stick [SanDisk Extreme 32GB USB 3.0 Flash Drive (SDCZ80-032G-GAM46)] with very good read/write speeds, and the recordings are now flawless.

Affordable and reliable

So much better than the more expensive device I tried from a competitor.

Outstanding solution to over the air broadcast TV recording. Fantastic for the money.

So far, I love it. It is a lot smaller then I thought and the build quality is a little on the cheap side as far as the plastic case and buttons….BUT it does exactly what I need it to do and it is simple to hook up and use.
