After trying a few other indoor aerials, and a disastrous attempt to fit an extension by a local installer which resulted in a flooded living room, I decided to take a chance on one of these units based on the glowing review by other purchasers.

It's all true! This tiny unit has worked perfectly where other larger, more expensive aerials have failed! Brilliant!

I've just ordered another for my DAB hi-fi too!

Don't normally do reviews but had to with these, they are fab.

Don't let the size fool you, these are tiny, about the size of a business card but thicker but they worked great for me (even without the extendable aerial things). Since the digital swtich over our two upstairs tellies would not work with their old indoor aerials. These worked within minutes with excellent reception. Well chuffed.

For those who say they don't work think they may just be plugging them in and expecting to see a picture. What I had to do is plug them in and then rescan for channels.

You look at the box and think - that's small, they can't be serious? You take it out and your now thinking this is for a dolls house!!! You could not be more wrong, this little beauty will find every free view channel you could wish for, well it did for us. A lot depends of course on where you live and what obstacles are in your line of transmission but for us this innocent looking, almost childlike piece of technology has done everything that was ask of it - BRILLIANT!!!

Can't believe that such a small ariel can work so well. You can hardly see the ariel behind the tv. I really recommend this item

Great little piece of kit - tiny and I mean tiny, but works like a dream. Highly recommended and excellent value for money

This is a great device: it's tiny and does its part well (I used it on my AverMedia USB hybrid digital TV DAB box). The suction mount is practical to stick the aerial and keep it from moving around.

I'd tried a few different indoor aerials with my digital ready TV before digital switchover came to our area. Nothing worked, despite having been able to pick up some channels on an old, non-digital TV with a digital box. connected. After switchover I was obviously going to need an aerial to be able to watch TV again, so after finding that my TV was now picking up digital signals (but not able to display any of them properly) I went looking for an aerial again.

This one had the best reviews of any indoor cable I could find to suit my needs. It's small, so it doesn't take up a lot of room like some aerials. In fact it's almost ridiculously small. To look at it you wouldn't expect it to be much use, but it actually does a great job despite its tiny size.

It's not perfect. There are a few channels I still have trouble getting good reception on, and I get the occasional "No Signal" message on channels that normally have great reception. But the main five channels are all fine as a rule, and several others work have decent reception. For some channels I have to move the aerial about a bit, but that usually helps.

Definitely worth a try.

More compact (body probably only 3 by 2cm)but wow it works brilliantly. Because of the sucker it goes anywhere for best reception. No power required either. Working on my meos tv.
