Product Rating: 3.0
Product Details: The picture quality for this product is actually very good. When watching free over the air broadcasts with this one you get a picture quality that is just a tiny notch below that of a DVD. If you are looking for a significant upgrade from the quality you get then the it is a good one to consider. The sound quality is also very good for this product. It is similar to most of the others we have looked at in that it gives viewers a crystal clear sound.
Features: It comes with an electronic programming guide that shows/displays information for upcoming shows and currently running shows. It also comes with real physical buttons to allow control without the remote control. The best thing about it is that it was upgraded from the Artec T3A Pro to include analog pass-through. Other key features include an external power adapter and multi-language functions. It does not come with a universal remote control or a smart antenna connection port.
This box has just about everything. The only things it is missing is the smart antenna port and the remote being able to be programmed for universal use. Other than that it is very good and for most it will get the job done very well. We highly recommend it if the price is right. If you can find it for under $50 we say go for it!

"The T3AP Pro Digital-to-Analog Converter Box will only show stations that have a 90%+ signal. If the signal is weak, the station doesn't show. Before the stations in Buffalo went digital, I could pick them up fairly well with rabbit ears, not the same quality as Toronto stations. After Buffalo went digital, I can no longer pick them up with the T3AP Pro Digital-to-Analog Converter Box."Wil Said...
"I have an Artec, have had it since the conversion, and have been very happy. Unfortunately now the remote won't hold a program, even for the converter box. Could this just be a battery problem or something else and if it is some thing else where could I get a new one? Like I said, outside of the issue with the remote I am very happy and this box has function very well for me for several years."
