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

    Pros:

    Excellent performance in all three modes; sensitive; instructions are in perfect English; remote control and antenna included; drivers and software good and installed without problems (Windows 7 64-bit); scheduler to record programs unattended; time-shifting; EPG, teletext and closed captions (TV); build quality good; Linux drivers available on web (not tested by me)

    Cons:

    Cannot record DAB+ audio (?); brief but annoying dropouts if browsing web pages while viewing/listening; you may require a better antenna if not in strong signal area; first-time setup (scanning stations) is slow; cannot change save format (DVB-T is always MPG, FM audio is always WMA), although converter program is supplied; no RDS in FM mode

    OtherThoughts:

    Software is (1) Presto! PVR by Newsoft and (2) Blaze Video Magic (converts/recompresses video/audio); chipset is Realtek 2832U; audio deserves to be heard through good headphones or good amplifier/speakers; I receive 38 DAB+ stations here in Melbourne, Australia

    Bottomline:

    First experience of DAB+ radio and am stunned by how good the quality is. The unit exceeded my expectations in every way and is in my two all-time top DX purchases. Highly recommended.
