3 out of 5 eggsOkay...

Pros: USB interface makes it easy to use for a mini-syystem.

Cons: These get half the signal that my old Hauppauge PCI-E tuners would get. Something about these doesn't let them pull in all the signal they should. Physical device also gets VERY hot.

5 out of 5 eggsGood

Pros: Bought this to be used on a Micro ITX build for a backup gaming PC and HTPC. Since I have to use the only expansion slot on the mobo for a graphics card, I needed a USB cable reader and this works great

Cons: Only con is that the sensor is integrated into the port... Kind of pointless if you are plugging it into the back of your HTPC

1 out of 5 eggsNot worth it

Pros: None

Cons: Constant crashes, signal loss. Takes too long ton open.

Other Thoughts: It's picture at best, is average. I've had to reinstall it so many times that i'm just uninstalling it altogether. This is an quad-core win/7 laptop. You have to want to babysit this tv card. Not me.

3 out of 5 eggsNot perfect for Canada

Pros: The FM tuner is working great !!!

5 out of 5 eggsGreat little gadget

Pros: Does exactly what I need done: watch and record TV shows. Works perfectly with MS Media Center. I'm back for my third one.

Cons: Comes with TotalMedia 3.5, which is finicky to say the least. Use MS Media Center instead. It's not often that a free MS program is far better than third party software, but in this case it certainly is.

Other Thoughts: Don't bother installing TotalMedia.

5 out of 5 eggsProduct does its job

Pros: I bought the UB445-U2 to do one thing: to watch local channels rather pay those ridiculous cable prices. It does what I need it to do and more.

Cons: None so far.

Other Thoughts: I would try the software that it comes with and Windows Media center and see which is best for your needs. I personally like Windows Media Center better.

5 out of 5 eggsIt does what it supposed to do

Pros: I was able to get all the good channels in my area CBS,NBC, FOX, KTLA, and ION. I can watch about 40+ channels but as long as I can watch all the major networks, I am happy.

Cons: None really in my opinion

Other Thoughts: I think it is better to use Windows Media Center than the software it comes with at least in my case windows media center works perfect

1 out of 5 eggsdon't waste your money

Pros: the screen capture portion of the device works

Cons: won't scan channels, just scans the same channel over and over, if I disconnect the device I lose audio, had to reinstall drivers and total media, total media center buggy -- in particular doesn't remember many of the settings.

Other Thoughts: Thought this was a good deal for $30 bucks, still hoping for a driver and software update from the site but nothing yet
