Excelent for SDR! – RTL2832U + R820T Mini DVB-T + DAB+ + FM USB Digital TV Dongle - Black Reviews

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

Pros:
- Cheap - Arrived under 20 days from order
Cons:
-Two antennas were defected because of bad handle with package, no big problem. The screw for antenna was hit an retracted so antenna cannot be screwed up. Solved it with a bit of tools.
Other:
I ordered ~10 pcs to share with my club ham op's and we tested r820t vs e4000 so there is difference e4000 is little more sensitive but more noisy. Few hams told me that SDRSharp was freezing audio and video, so i suggest a better pc config with a stronger cpu or more RAM mem or to lower sample rate
Bottomline:
Great product for sdr, although it is not its primary usage, still did not tried to run it for tv reception. :)
