SLX Compact 3-in-1 Omni-Directional Aerial is rated 4.9 out of 5 by 10.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from You don't get what is pictured I read the reviews and it looked like a smart unit. Being a bit of a bargain hunter I looked online at other aerials like this and found only one other. Elsewhere I found same spec etc but up to 30% cheaper, however I chose this one because of the neat, white, power inserter - not the ugly, industrial, bare metal one the other one had in its image. I booked a day off​ work to fit it and purchased it in the shop. When I opened it I found the exact same unit, complete with the ugly bare metal power inserter, as the 'much cheaper elsewhere' one. I kept it because I had already booked a day off work and the cheaper ones would take at least a day to deliver. The actual aerial itself is very easy to install and it works really well. Reception is fantastic and it is a smart looking thing. Before I installed it I connected it up indoors and from the ground floor living room I checked reception. It was fantastic, and that was indoors. The only issue I have found with the quality is the cable itself. I attached it to the existing cable to pull it through the cavity to the loft, ensuring smooth joint with no snags. When pulling it through, without a lot of strain, it snapped. The plastic cabling had just snapped (leaving the copper core exposed)and I lost around 2 metres of cable. To summarise, you don't get what is pictured - you get a black power supply and an uncovered, ugly metal, power inserter. You can get exactly the same product cheaper, though you have to wait for delivery. If you need to pull the cable through a wall or any distance be prepared to buy a new cable (knowing what i know now i would have invested in a better quality cable before I started) The actual unit is great. Reception is fantastic. It's aesthetically pleasing to look at too. I'm not disappointed in the product, just Screwfix themselves for having the wrong product image there. It's not like buying nails, something like this needs an accurate description and photograph.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from “Impressive, Most Impressive.” I needed a TV aerial that was small and unobtrusive, due to the fact that my property has overhead mains supply. The reason for choosing this product was because it fitted the specifications and size that I required. Furthermore, the only location that I had at my disposal to install the product, was close to the point where the overhead main supply is attached to my home. At first, I was very reluctant to go ahead with the purchase of this product, for the following reasons: 1. This type of aerial always had bad reviews, due to poor performance. However, I noted that this product had an inbuilt amplifier (in the mushroom shaped-plastic dome), which is powered by an AC/DC voltage unit. 2. The location for the installation point is very close to the overhead mains supply (with associated strong magnetic fields), which might interfere with the performance of this product. In view of the above concerns, I finally decided to purchase the product, in order to give it a try. I fixed the aerial support bracket on the wall and then mounted and secured the dome aerial on top of the bracket. Prior to securing the dome aerial, I placed on top of the dome aerial my Iphone (which has a compass app). I then checked on Google the precise bearing for the TV transmitter in Sudbury, Suffolk, which was 168.o I then completed the installation by drilling a hole through the wall (with a drill bit that I also purchased from Srewfix) and then connected the coaxial to the aerial and single gang TV wall mount socket box. I then connected the coaxial cable lead to the TV and wall mount socket box. Turned on the TV and started the retune procedure. To my amazement.....BINGO.......242 channels came up on the screen menu with 100% signal quality and signal strength ranging from 75% to 100%. In the words of DARTH VADER: “Impressive, Most Impressive.”

Rated 5 out of 5 by from discreet This is perfect for my log cabin, we live in a poor signal area and didn't want a large ugly tv aerial sticking out. Very easy to fit and enough cable for the job, didn't have to tune the tv and still picked up well over 140 channels.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best aerial I've ever fitted Very simple to put together. Alot easier than trying to setup a aerial up and mount. Picks up all the stations very well. Look great and helps stop the birds from sitting on it. The whole unit looks very tidy and not so noticeable as a TV aerial.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good quality Bought this for looks more than anything as it's mounted on the end of a newly built log cabin rather than seeing the unsightly normal ones you get. So far it is giving me access to more council telly channells but not them all. This could be down to needing some fine tuning so only time will tell. Ease of mounting was good and all items needed for mounting were in the box.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Truly Excellent!!! As I live in a an area where rooftop aerials are not permitted, I fitted one of these SLX compact units in my loft and the results are truly amazing. As the instructions stated, I just pointed the aerial in a similar general direction as rooftop aerials in other roads and bingo! Local and national DAB transmissions are now hitting 100% strength. According to my tuner Freeview signal quality is now also 100% and picture is much better than what I had with Freesat. Brilliant product! I gave the item only 4 stars for "Features" as its just an aerial - but a very good one!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good picture quality I was a bit sceptical about this aerial, after fitting to the side of the house and routing the cable which was reasonably easy, I powered the aerial up, turned on the TV and searched for channels, it found all available channels and the picture quality is good. It works well for me, not sure how it would perform in other areas with different signal strengths.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy fitting So easy to fit. I have very limited loft space and tried an aerial but was way to big. I can pick up 135 freeview channels and all HD channels. Bit pricey but worth the extra loft space and ease of fitting.
