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 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.

>>Please do not remove the reviews if you don't like it. If you have a different opinion, say so instead. Not everyone has time to go thru all posts for reviews.

I got it at $19 from 1saleaday several months ago. I don't think it is worth more than $5 though. It is better than Rosewill sold by Newegg, but it is nothing astounding - cheap cable and even cheaper connector. Essentially, a rabbit ears antenna provides the same....

my experience

Bought one last time @ 1Saleaday, performance way exceeded my expectation. Pulled in lots of stations and the HD quality is amazing! This is on a new 27" Samsung LED TV. Buying another one!

I just ordered my 4th one for use in the southside of Houston TX. I set one up in the Pearland area and got a bunch of crazy channels and much better reception than what was being picked up with rabbit ears.

I have also setup another 2 in the Pasadena/Deer Park area and got a couple extra channels, but mostly better reception on problem channel 26 Fox with less digital signal loss on the majority of the major networks.

If you live behind any hills, in the woods, or are surrounded by large buildings that are blocking the direction of your area's antenna farm, you might need the amplified version.

This is a great antenna. I tried this but needed the amplified version though since the signals get blocked in my area.

Is there a difference in the model listed (MH-759263) and the model listed on Amazon (MH-ANT1000)?

Other than the dimensions, they seems very similar. I couldn't find anything on the Mohu website detailing and differences between the models numbers.

Good antenna for UHF. Not so good if you have channels in high-VHF. In my area, "real" networks like NBC and FOX are in high-VHF, and this antenna can't pick them up.

I bought one off 1saleaday a few months ago and hoped this would be my last antenna. In my area, the reception wasn't any better than my cheap rca that's made the same. I taped it on the wall for about a week trying to find the best spot for it until one day the tape gave out and when it dropped it pulled the connector lose. The connector is defin. the weak spot on these things. After comparing this to my $12 rca, the rca is made much more durable and at my house the reception is no different.

Better than rabbit ears. Mounting kind of sucks as it's just Velcro/glue dots that's too weak to hold its weight for an extended period of time (days to weeks). The cord is rather short if you're wanting to mount it higher/longer than 3 feet from the TV you'll need a M/M adapter and an extra cord. I lose about 5 channels unless I have my antenna close to my ceiling or in the upper corner of my windows...

NBC, CBS and Fox 12 (VHF) are some of the the five channels I lose if not close to my ceiling which kind of confirms an earlier statement about issues with VHF channels.
