not duplicated by available 5G products, including those from Zenith/LG.
Granted, the new 5G products do provide improved performance but whether
that is good enough depends upon where one lives. Mark Schubin would say no
and remember; he receives acceptable NTSC reception with rabbit ears.
You may have information that I don't, but I cannot say that the new INTEGRATED LG sets are not as good as the box I tested. No one has brought any integrated set here. It's a little tough to schlep them into my bedroom. I can report only that no non-integrated receiver has yet performed as well as the 5th-generation LG prototype, still the only box to have received stable DTT on all Manhattan channels (roughly 2 miles away) with a set-top antenna.
