  • Cheap SDR receiver with RTL2832U and R820T tuner

    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:1 day to 1 week

    Pros:

    Cheap. Contains the proper RTL2832U ADC and R820T tuner that you need for RTL-SDR and SDR#. Includes a simple antenna and is reasonably well-built.
    Includes a small IR remote for the TV functions, battery included.

    Cons:

    Included antenna is small and not very useful for extended frequency ranges. The connector is small and you'll need a convertor to connect COAX.
    Software for the original use (DVB-T) is simple but probably adequate (haven't tried it much).

    OtherThoughts:

    If you buy this for a specific reason, check what kind of antenna you'll need and order that too, or check how you can build it yourself.

    Bottomline:

    Buy it if you want to play with SDR. Contains the right ADC and tuner for large frequency range. For proper receptions you'll want to buy/make an antenna appropriate for your use.
