If you are tired of the standard TV dishes sitting on top of your house and always going out whenever it rains, then it’s time to try the TERK Trinity Trimodal HDTV Antenna.
Breakdown of the Top Features
Sleek Design: The sleek design of this antenna is what initially sold me on it. It wasn’t a big ugly dish and it wasn’t a huge clunky box either. It is a small, quiet, rectangular box that can be seamlessly incorporated into any home entertainment system.
HD Capability: With some antennas, you can get a lot of channels, but the picture is always blurry and definitely not what you want. Sure, maybe it’ll do in a pinch, but why compromise when you can watch all of your channels in full 1080p HD. It was specially engineered to receive 1080p HD broadcasts, from up to 60 miles away. Which brings me to my next point…
Wide Range: Yes, 60 miles. This simple, compact TV antenna can receive channel reception up to 60 miles from the broadcast source. This means you can get HD TV virtually anywhere you live. The TERK Trinity Trimodal HDTV Antenna outperforms traditional antennas with its special Trimodal Technology.
Smartboost Amplifier: Best of all, if you are close to 60 miles away from the broadcast source and you have a weak signal, the included Smartboost amplifier will boost that weak signal to give you a high-quality TV watching experience. The Smartboost amplifier, combined with the antenna, outperforms pretty much every other brand out there.
After living in the middle of nowhere for a few years, and trying multiple antennas that claim to boost your signal, I had very low expectations for this antenna. Despite my jaded outlook and low expectations, this antenna outperformed every other one I tried. When I first opened the package it came in; I was immediately impressed with its compact nature and sleek design. Once I examined it for any defects, scratches, or dents, of which there were none, I started reading the manual to figure out how to set it up. It was very easy to set up and I wasn’t like thinking “how the heck is this supposed to work?” It comes with everything you need and easy to understand instructions. Once I got it all hooked up, I was a little confused at first because the first channel I tried to pick up was all static, no picture at all. But my husband reminded me we didn’t get that station in the first place. After that, every channel I tried came in with crisper images than they ever had before. I was taken aback and instantly fell in love with it, but I knew the real test was when it started raining. I waited a few days and eventually, it rained. Slow at first, so I switched on the TV and the channels were still coming in. Then it picked up and started raining pretty heavy. Still, the channels were coming in great. I was so elated to finally have an antenna that will work when it storms. After all, that is when you want to watch TV the most. Overall, this antenna had a very strong and very positive first impression on me and it hasn’t proved to be wrong so far.
There are countless advantages of this antenna. One big one, for me at least, is that it is so compact and lightweight. I have very limited space on my entertainment center so I don’t have a whole lot of room for an antenna. And for one reason or another, I find myself having to move stuff around a lot, so the fact that this only weighs two pounds is a big advantage for me. Another advantage, is that it is super easy to set up and use. Once you set it up the first time, you don’t have to do anything to it and you can rely on it to always be working. I really love this because with other electronics, like my modem, I always find myself having to mess with it, turn it off and back on, which gets to be a pain the neck. Lastly, the included amplifier is a near miracle. I know this was already listed as one of the top features, but honestly, it is also a huge advantage. It allows people like me, who live in the middle of nowhere, to still get TV channels.
There aren’t really any disadvantages of this antenna. But, if I had to pick something, I would say it may be a disadvantage that you have to set it up. Although it was easy for me, depending on how you have your entertainment set up and how many things you have plugged in, this could prove to be tedious. I am not sure if you can really call this a disadvantage though, since you would have to set up any antenna you buy.
When you buy this antenna, everything you need to set it up and use it is included. It comes with the antenna itself, a coax cable, the power adapter, the amplifier, and the user manual.
Although it has its disadvantages, they are very limited and do not make this antenna not worth buying. I highly recommend this TV antenna to anyone looking for a new one. I know, you’ve probably tried a few and they didn’t perform as well as they promised and you think this is just another one that promises stuff that it can’t deliver, I thought that too. But I was completely wrong. I haven’t had a single problem with mine, and depending on where you buy it from, the store may have a return policy that you can take advantage of if you don’t like it. But overall, it is definitely an antenna you should try.
