I brought this from newegg last week cause meritline was sold out. Dont know if it is my locations or what but i only got a few more channels than my rabbit ear antennas. The suction cup on the base is weak, the antenna itself is made of flexible plastic. I brought this cause of the "good" reviews, but its not as "good" as i thought it would be.
I have one of these paper-thin (Mohu) antennas, and it works much better when you amplify it. I'm just using the amplifier that Time Warner left plugged in after we dropped TV from our service, but you can buy one like this on Amazon:
I haven't done any research, but I'm sure you can get them cheaper than that. I'd probably aim at around $10 or less. Without it, some channels come in well, but with it, all channels come in well, and there are almost no dropouts.
I bought one of these from Amazon a few weeks back and have had experience with it through normal use as well as storms. To me, it's well worth the money. I have my antenna placed behind a TV on my main level. The antenna is not in front of a window, and I am about 10-20 miles from most broadcast sources in my area. I get clear images even in storms, and I get every channel I thought I would (ABC, NBC, CBS, Fox, PBS) as well as a few extra. Bottom line, check your area on a coverage map prior to purchasing any antenna because they will only be as good as the signal in your area. If you have a weak signal, get an amplified antenna or an outdoor antenna. If you have fair to strong signals, this thing will do you just fine for a fraction of what a mohu leaf or wineguard would cost you.
