    Pros:

    Price! very cheap and it works perfect.
    Perfect for SDR. I didn't use as a DVB-T receiver.
    With sdr-rtl utils compiled works perfectly in Raspberry Pi with Wheezy.
    Good behavior i was working about 72 hours (without poweroff) and it worked without problems.

    Cons:

    Use a MCX connector you will need some conversor.
    it have some noise signal in some frequencies but it is not important.

    OtherThoughts:

    RTL2832 inside not M4000.
    I tested it and it works perfect in Linux, MacOS (with ports, Raspberry Pi (with low receive rates because of CPU limitation).
    Good for a summer hobby ;)

    Bottomline:

    Recommended for SDR.
    In Spain, it is possible to listen some voices and signals in 132Mhz (airport) 160Mhz (radio-taxi) and 460MHZ police with, pay attention, the ORIGINAL antenna. I am living in a 7th floor.
