Rated 5 out of 5Â by Verified Reviewer Did the job well!
Bought to replace a previous Labgear amp that had gone pop. Was a straight swap except for the newer type connectors which I needed to purchase as well. Getting a better picture on all TVs as well! Hope it lasts as long as the last one (10+ years).

Rated 5 out of 5Â by Andymac999 Very good!
I recently fitted one of these to replace an old box due to all the tv screens in the house randomly pixelating (picture break up). The problem has gone and the overall picture quality on all tv screens has greatly improved. I did have to re-tune all tv's to ensure that all stations were available. 20 mins to swap out with the old one in the loft - recommended.

Rated 2 out of 5Â by TVfanandDIYslave 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.
