Labgear LDA2081L/S 4-Way VHF / UHF Aerial Amplifier 2 Inputs 8+1 Outputs
No good for me in Essex !
I bought this when my Philex SLx8L suddenly failed after 9 years of service. At first glance it was OK, but then it became clear that the channels broadcast on the MUXs close to the 4G band were being filtered out by the 4G filter that this (and according to their technical help line all Philex / Labgear products) has.
I replaced it with an item that doesn't have the 4G filter (Proception), and all is well again.
Screwfix were fine with taking the item back, even though it was 6 weeks later when I got around to returning it (I got credit not cash due to this, but that's no problem as I am a frequent Screwfix shopper).
Just to be clear on the technical aspects, I'm in Essex, receiving TV from Sudbury, who broadcast on channels including 58 and 60. These are the ones that were affected by this product, so not BBC1, ITV etc, but ITVBe, Sky News and some others.
So, this is probably great for many users, but I wouldn't recommend it if you are trying to receive signals from the top few channels in the band.

TV Amplifier amplifies amply
previous one (different make and different supplier failed after 3 years. Screwfix managed to supply and deliver within 1 day.
It seems provide a better all round performance and was easy to fit. All done in ten minutes

we bought this to replace an old pre digital amplifier-splitter. didn't realise how bad the old one was, After the five minute job of installing it all the TV signal at each outlet was transformed , only reason I didn't rate reliability as a five is only time will tell.
Don't forget to buy the correct connectors, they don't come with the unit.
