I don't own this one. I have purchased several (a dozen or so) items from meritline in last couple of years with mixed results. The price is low for a reason - much of it is low-priced Chinese stuff. Some it half-way decent, most of it is fairly good considering the price. I bought a 12V plug-in adapter (cigarette lighter plug-in) for my laptop. It worked for a while, but the wire in the cig plug was not soldered on to the connector, just held in place by the assembly of the plug. After about 6 months of periodic use, the connection became intermittent. I opened it up and soldered it, like they should have done at the factory, and it works fine now.
You have to read the customer reviews of the product. I have a tendency to order only those items that say they have the highest ratings. With everything, though, you pay your money and take your chances. If I were looking for a TV antenna right now, I would probably purchase this one and try it. It currently has 10 reviews, and only 1 is less than 3 stars out of 5. The description does say that it picks up UHF and VHF bands. If you are within 10 to 15 miles of the towers (preferably under 10), it will probably work fine. If you are farther away than that or have obstructions, such as tall buildings or trees between you and the towers, you will probably want a better antenna. This one might work fine at 20 miles. I have no reason to say it won't, as I haven't tried it, but my experience with other antennas, some amplified and some not, is that at 10 miles from the towers, you need a fairly good cheaper antenna, and a better one for greater distances. Hope this helps.
