Low price, good quality DVB-T receiver – DVB-T Digital TV USB 2.0 Dongle with Remote Reviews

Pros:
Device works really well if you manage to set it up properly on your PC. Finding channels is much easier if you know the frequencies.
Picture quality is very good.
Antenna has strong magnet which is easy to fix in a car.
Included software is usable. Even Teletext works.
Cons:
Antenna is not very sensitive although it works if you experiment a little with its location (near a window or outside works best).
The device gets a little hot in use.
It is rather big so it blocks other USB ports when in use, but you could use an extension cable if that is a problem.
Can only receive free to air channels which limits its use, but that goes for most of these receivers.
Other:
Never used the remote controller. Maybe leave it out and include a better antenna. It may be easier to use with other software although the included software does the job.
Bottomline:
A cheap USB DVB-T receiver that does a nice job. For this price you can't go wrong. Great for listening radio and watching free to air TV when you're on the go.
