Summary: More garbage.Replacement for defective unit. Has same defect. Sound skips. Bought homeworx unit for less than half the price .Homeworx unit works great & has more functions & real customer service.
Summary: I purchased this tuner so I could upgrade my older HDTV which only has an ariel ATSC tuner but no QAM tuner. I shopped around quite a bit including what I could find on Amazon.com. I finally settled on this tuner given the price and features were right. I've had it several days now and feel comfortable writing this review about it.
Summary: I've seen many imported HDTV tuners come and go, and this one's the best of the lot. Does a fine job tuning in off-air and clear QAM cable channels. Which means it won't tune in encrypted programs, so it's not a replacement for your cable box. Comes with a surprising collection of adapters to cover a just about any kind of video connection. Impressive for the money.
Summary: Once I figured out by trial and error how to get my product working it actually worked quite well. I hooked the HD tuner up to my older 62 inch 1080i Widescreen TV. My TV originally had an analog tuner but was HD "ready" if one added a HD Digital tuner or connected it to a HD source such as a cable box. After ditching cable due the large expense each month I had to setup my tv's for "free" tv.
Summary: Because of recent economic conditions, I decided to adopt a 2 pronged approach to TV 2.0: 1. Drop cable and purchase a TV Tuner that will pick up over the air signals. It was a very satisfying feeling to drop off the cable boxes back to Tiem Warner and have only an inernet bill to now worry about. I purchased 2 Kworld Qam/atsc (that has component and HDMI connections. Right now I still 3 old school "fat back" TV's.
Summary: The box was easy to setup, and picture quality was great. The problems were with the audio of certain channels. It didnt appear to be related to the signal strength. Re-scanning actually found more channels, but the audio wa even worse than before. I called tech support and they suggested resetting to factory defaults and re-scan. this was of no help. I got the impression that this was a fairly common problem with the unit.
Summary: Kworld seems to have cut some design corners with their design. Plus they have some serious quality issues too. Buyers of their products should be very cautious when they buy. I ocassionally like to watch TV in my home theater. So, I went looking for an HDTV terrestrial reciever with HDMI output that had good reviews. I wanted a unit to hook up to my Denon home theater processor via an HDMI cable connection.
Summary: Pros: Video and sound quality is excellent. It has outputs for DVI/HDMI/Component video and standard video. After auto-tuning one can manually delete channels (feature not documented in the manual or online). Remote is very simple, but does what it was designed to do well. Firmware is upgradable via USB flash drive. It seems to be very energy efficient. It does not get very hot and also has an auto power off feature.
Summary: First off, I'd like to say that I finally decided to get rid of my cable TV subscription after all these years. Paying more than $1000 a year for cable just doesn't justify getting 500 channels (for a TV that costs $500!), which I hardly watch anyway! Comcast is the only cable company in my area so I'm stuck with a $100 a month subscription. That said, this tuner is worth more than the $100 I paid for.
Summary: I purchased the Kworld HDMI edition HD TV Tuner in order to get all of my local channels in 720p and 1080i. My LCD only had one cable/antenna input with a tuner but both extra HDMI and component inputs. My cable service only provides about half of the local stations available. The tuner is up and running now and providing excellent reception and HD pictures.
