Absolutely no idea how good this will be, but since I'm living in a box room with my laptop and no aerial connection, I thought I'll give this a go.
Also get a free pack of 2 nano bathroom hooks...All for a grand price of £8.48 delivered. (Look at the special offers and promotions section about a third way down)

Play.com has this aerial for £16 alone, so I guess it's a good deal for the price.

Lol! Good point RealBender, didn't realised they were same seller. Amazing how much Play.com charges over the odds!!

Will let you know whether this works or not, the feable aerial I got with my USB TV tuner can't pick up jack unless I stand on 1 leg, pointing 45degrees West and wave my hand and if the wind blows in my direction!! So if this works, it'll be brilliant.
Can't have that much amplification power if it's usb powered?

I've tried several of these amplified aerials of different makes with no joy, but that is probably because I am out in the hills with very poor signal strength. If you are in a built up area you might be OK. I bought a similar item for 97 pence from Currys bargain bin.

There is no "power" as such involved. Signal amps draw a few milliwatts.

I bought this aerial for a bedroom tv a couple of weeks ago - amazon.co.uk/Aug…-12
Wasn't expecting much but it's great, I can pick up every single channel going. Some of the channels were breaking up but putting it on the window ledge did the trick.
Everybody will experience different results though, depending on your location to your local transmittor.

That points to one with a pretty bad review...
Like I say, it all depends on your area and distance from nearest transmittor - the same aerial in white has 5 stars from another reviewer.
Sorry al, looks like they have changed the price back again. Expired.

Mine has been despatched, so will report on the findings soon.
