~ Cheapest way to get DAB I have encountered.
~ DVB-T tuner is powerful (Realtek)
~ Handles HDTV well
~ Runs on weak computers well (eg netbook)
~ Standard ant. connector - no need for stupid adapters.
~ Decent build, runs cool.
~ FM radio performs to a satisfactory level.
~ A bit long
~ Heavy coax cables can put a lot of weight on the unit, which bend the USB plug in the socket a bit.
~ The USB plug isn't as tight as I'd like it to be.
~ Included antenna will only work in prime signal locations, in fact, the antenna cable picks up more than the antenna itself.
~ Presto! PVR isn't the best program for the device.
Presto! PVR does not work with DAB/+ well and chews up heaps of CPU. Alternate programs and/or drivers fix this. Other reviewers provide helpful suggestions to overcome the DAB stuttering and similar issues.
Buy a decent antenna for this, included one is useless, something mildly directional should do it, not an omnidirectional stick. Pity it's not backwards compatible with USB1.1 for my Thinkpad T30
Fantastic unit, esp. for the price. Works great on my netbook.
