Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:1 day to 1 week

Pros:
Contains an ESD, has a R820T. These help make this dongle a far better buy the E4000 dongle I bought in April at the time of the inital rush to get SDR compatible dongles.
Cons:
Has a linear voltage regulator so can get hotter tiny aerial, but this can be fixed
Other:
A very good starting point for SDR. setup, now to get it working with a RaspberryPi. I have my older E4000 on one and the RPi server works well.
Bottomline:
Excellent value for money, look for a MCX to F adaptor if you want to hook it up to external aerials
