  • Looks good
Cons
  • Poorly balanced

verdict: A solid performer

When it comes to technical performance, the Total Control SV1240R is one of the most consistent indoor aerials we’ve tested. It has no real weaknesses, regardless of whether you live in a strong or weak signal area. However its shoddy design and lacklustre instructions really lower its overall score.

Pros
  • Solid all-round performer
Cons
  • Poorly designed
  • Inadequate instructions
