Pros: This card would have been perfect, it has everything I wanted.
Cons: Does not fit in an Antec Fusion HTPC case, ya that's my fault, but they do not have any dimensions even on the manufacture's site.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: KWORLD ATSC 340U Dongle ATSC TV USB Stick ATSC 340U USB 2.0 Interface
Pros: Newegg had an amazing price on this when I bought it. It will pick up HD signals OTA (over the air) with a better antenna than what was included (Unless you live close to your TV stations). I recognizes ClearQAM signal using the provided Arcsoft TotalMedia software.
Cons: The TotalMedia software is a very stripped down version compared with their Theater version. I have not gotten this tuner to work with ClearQAM using anyone elses software. If you are buying this to use with Vista Media Center w/ TV pack 2008, any other windows Media Center, BeyondTV, SageTV, or MythTV this card will not tune ClearQAM.
The drivers have never been updated on KWORLD's website. They are hard to find, and when you do find them, they are the same driver that is included on the CD.
Other Thoughts: I bought this tuner based on the low price and should have done my homework. My computer fully supports the tuner and the 340U does work. My issue is that it does not work for what I intended to use it for, a HDTV tuner for my Media Center PC that will tune the cable companies free HD content (ClearQAM).READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Vista Graphics Score of 5.6 and gaming graphics score of 5.2
Cons: The fan is loud for my Home Theater PC (a Shuttle XPC)
Other Thoughts: I got this to replace a Nvdia 7300LE that went south. Nvidia has horrible drivers for Vista Premium 32 bit. This card works so much better (and yes I know the specs are twice as good as the card I replaced)READ FULL REVIEW
