The Mohu Leaf Indoor Television Antenna is a paper thin antenna that connects to your TV and mounts on the wall, behind a picture, or just about anywhere to enable you to receive free over-the-air broadcasts. The Leaf is unlike any other television antenna on the market and provides unparalleled performance, installation options and value. Because the majority of television antennas on the market today are unsightly and tend to be an "eye-sore", design aesthetics were a primary driver in the design of the Leaf antenna. The antenna is black on one side and white on the other providing a variety of installation options.

Dear Urbanites -
I have the amplified version for over an year now. I tried it in both apartments and independent homes. It's reception is horrible. Not all channels are picked up at one location. Even the same channel that is picked up today at one spot will be picked up at a different spot tomorrow or during a different time in the same day. After sticking long patches of Velcro to the wall and moving it around, I am finally fed up. This product sucks.
Works great in an attic here! Even gets stations 20-60 miles away! Bought on the last deal. Four Stars on Amazon.com with 2,200 reviews outweighs two bad ones on SD Wiki! Amazon Reviews
Suburb - One thing I've seen missing on most antenna thread discussions is the two-faced nature of amplified antennas. In many situations an amplified antenna will perform worse than non-amplified! Keep your runs as short as possible with as few connections as possible. Use high quality cable and connectors. Finally, if amplified isn't working for you, try without; it worked for me!

I have the non-amplified version on an inside wall and it picks up the same channels as my Terk amplified antenna which I have pointing out the window with LOS to the broadcast towers. I'm quite satisfied with the way it performs

Have this in a basement apartment on an interior wall not near a window - still picks up all the good channels (ABC, NBC, CBS, FOX, CW) great! Couldn't be more pleased and I paid full price on amazon at $40. Tried out 3 other antennas before getting Mohu, this outperformed the rest (including the $12 RCA). Highly recommend.

If you don't have access to a window and amplified antennas failed to consistently receive channels, don't expect this one to work regardless of the reviews and comments. I live on the second floor of a 2 floor house and almost no antennas worked because I was not close to a window, not even amplified ones. I'm not surrounded by high-rises or other signal-inhibiting architecture. This one picked up channels, but no more than other antennas. Your only bet is to get an outdoor antenna and put it on the roof.
Amplified Leaf works for me 50-60 miles out, It is mounted in attic at the apex of the roof. (approximately 30 feet high) Attached it to existing cable wiring.
