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

    Pros:

    +It is very cheap compared to ordinary radio receivers
    +Has a relatively wide range
    +Easy to use for both SDR and regular TV/FM listening purposes

    Cons:

    -Antenna is almost useless
    -Does not have ESD protection
    -Stronger signals generates second harmonics

    OtherThoughts:

    It is not hard to replace antenna to a better one and to solder in a cheap ESD protectiont diode like BAV99.
    This dongle is very useful when working with local or stronger signals where you don't need fancy high-end receivers.

    Bottomline:

    In general it is a good and cheap broad range SDR receiver, but a better equipment is needed for advanced tasks.
