elonics E4000 + RTL, pretty much what everyone says about this unit is true. Can be used with gnuradio on linux as general-purpose radio receiver. Terrible noise floor.
For SDR, use some kind of EM shield to try to get it lower, but the unit is far from serious for SDR. It has the olympic minimums for DVB, and as so don't expect much when trying to ... Read more
It is a great USB stick to use for SDR. This chip and tuner is supported both on Windows and Linux. I have tried with SDR# and HDSDR and it worked very well. There are many possibilities that can be achieved with this cheap tiny device. I have also tried its software which was inside the CD. I have scanned and found couple of FTA channels. It doesn'...

Low cost, combined with the proper chipset makes this a fantastic unit for all SDR usage. Yes, this takes special software available online for free - and the setup for this is more complicated than with normal broadcast TV usage - but it's well worth the effort! There really isn't anything negative to say - the product performs as advertised. The supplied ... Read more

I bought this DVB-T usb stick to use it with Linux and it works great with Ubuntu 12.04 and MythTV.
Receives well all the channels I can see on the "standard" tv.
The pictures and colors are good, the signal is good.
In the box there's also a usb cable, very useful because the stick is "big". Somewhat slow when changing channel but ... Read more

Installation ans startup as SDR receiver took me less than 20 minutes.
Manufacturing quality is good Nothing I can figure out at this time Contains a E4000 tuner and a Realtek 2832U what mnakes ... Read more
This is the best dvb stick for use with the RTL-SDR software; it DOES come with the Elonics E4000 tuner, which is currently the best one for general SDR use (receive only). This package also comes with a slightly better antenna than most other cheap DVB-stick products. None I didn't test it for TV reception; my interest in this product is for use with ... Read more

Works super as a SDR Radio, 52 Mhz > 2225 Mhz with the RDLSDR driver on OSX 10.8. If you are an aircraft monitoring enthusiast, you might have eyed some of the ADS-B radar boxes that allow you not only to receive ADS-B tracking information, as well as ACARS information, and live Air Traffic Control frequencies. These boxes typically go in the $80... Read more
