  • Really good!

    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:more than 1 month

    Pros:

    It just works. I had some trouble finding the working drivers for Linux. There are many repos around and I could finally make it work seamlessly with http://gitorious.org/rtl2832/rtl2832 (the chipset is RTL2832 as declared in the specs).

    The little included antenna proved to be better than I expected, and I can receive all TVs with it (but I live in a very good zone for receaving TV).

    Cons:

    Nothing particularly. The plastic casing isn't very good, but there no strong need for anything terrribly robust.

    OtherThoughts:

    One of my preferred features is the antenna connector, which is compatible with the antennas most frequently found in Italy, where I live.

    The Linux driver suggested above is able to dump the whole DVB-T stream (not only the channel you're watching), which is interesting if you want to record the whole tuned mux.

    Bottomline:

    It definitely worth its price! :-)
