    Used this product to replace standard splitters in a commercuial environment. Worked OK but caused repeat service calls with having to reset the unit that would fail on off hours and weekends. Second unit performed the same. Used as a driver on long RG6 cable runs. Ran shorter cables and re-installed splitters. If you like chasing your tail, then buy this puppy! I took it out and have not been back to the customer site since. Rate as poor compared to older Channel Master products (like the 5045 8 port amp).

    Good value with excellent performance

    Overall: 4.5 out of 5

    I bought this to replace the jumble of passive RF splitters in my home. This amp allows me to feed three TVs and three radios from one antenna with 4 dB of gain per device instead of the 7 to 10 dB loss caused by the transformer splitters. Good value, excellent performance, well built, and therefore highly recommended.

    Great AMP

    Overall: 5 out of 5

    Bought this to replace several splitters in my Home Theater system to overcome the losses inevitable in them. Greatly improved SDTV performance over cable on a couple of DVR's, an HTPC, and direct feed to TV's. Seemed to also improve HDTV signals (fewer dropouts). No downside that I have seen at all. Highly recommended.

    Good product and easy to install

    Overall: 5 out of 5

    Decent gain, low noise - and the flexibility to locate the amplifier remotely from the power source is very useful. I use this amplifier with a vertical omnidirectional broadband scanner antenna (MCM #30-1380) and get great performance for DTV, analog TV, FM, and multiple band scanner reception.
