This review is from: DIAMOND TVW750USB ATI Theater HD 750 USB
Pros: Gets more channels and a clearer picture than two other tuner brands I have tried. (Side by side comparison). Doesn't get hot. Works seamlessly in Windows 7 - I have 3 plugged in - paired with a winegard MS2002 omnidirectional antenna with an amplifier.
Cons: Rebate is slow... but eventually shows up.
Also, I'm pretty sure ATI is out of the TV Tuner business - I wish they would update this product line...
Other Thoughts: The antenna it comes with is fairly useless. Same for the remote. But the tuner itself is the BEST.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Hauppauge PCTV23058RS PCTV HD 80e mini Stick
Pros: It really is tiny. Think USB thumb drive. Remote is tiny too. Tiny tiny.
Cons: Side by side comparison - does NOT pick up the signal (ATSC over the air) as well as my ATI 750 USB. I have a roof mounted antenna. The channels that my ATI tuner gets flawlessly, this PCTV mini tuner skips. Disappointing...
Other Thoughts: It advertises a better signal thru "Signal Booster"... Not sure if that's a reference to the included antenna (which is probably better than the antenna included with the ATI 750 USB). Clearly my ATI 750 picks up the signal better, even though it doesn't have "signal booster". Spend the extra $10 and get the ATI.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Great speed
Other Thoughts: Note to Camera owners - My Panasonic DMC-FP1 transfers at less than 1MB/sec over the cable - when I put the memory card into my memory card reader, I get the FULL SPEED.READ FULL REVIEW
