Pros: I haven't decided if I want to install or not. See my cons.
Cons: Picture of product on Newegg shows version 15; however, what I received was version 14. This may be important to some due to what I found on Pinnacle's website which was a let-down:

Corel supports the following Pinnacle products:

Pinnacle Studio 17 Ultimate
Pinnacle Studio 16

Pinnacle Studio 16 Ultimate
Other Thoughts: The Newegg webpage says it works with Vista, but the Pinnacle website says it works with Windows XP SP2 or later, including Windows 7.
The following product(s) are certified as compatible with Windows 8 and have and comprehensive testing done in that environment: • Pinnacle Studio 16
The following products are certified as compatible with Windows 8, but have not had comprehensive testing done in that environment: • Avid Studio
• Pinnacle Studio 14
• Pinnacle Studio 15
All other Pinnacle Studio products are not tested and therefore not certified as compatible with Windows 8.
Pros: Excellent reception.
Cons: Mast mount is only 1", doesn't fit standard size masts.
Plastic window in control unit unglued when received bouncing around inside.
Screws that hold the plastic mounts of the elements were rusty upon receipt, doesn't affect usability but may shorten life.
Some manufacturers place restrictions on how details of their products may be communicated.
