    Works on linux (I just had to compile a module for kernel, it's well described on many webpages). VLC is able to play tv or radio using this dongle in quite good quality

    Supported by rtl-sdr project, you can use it as an inexpensive sdr radio (works from 24MHz to 1766MHz)

    It's quite cheap


    It isn't very sensitive, but it wasn't supposed to use it as sdr, so it's not a big con.

    It tells the computer it's RTL2838, which could cause a troubles on Linux, the kernel doesn't have driver for it included yet, so you have to download and compile it yourself, but it takes only few minutes.


    Cheap device which is capable of receiving a digital tv and radio and if you want to experiment a little, you can even receive images from weather satellites or decode gsm signals, it's just up to you.


    If you want a cheap dvb-t receiver or sdr radio, this is the right choice.
