4.0 out of 5 stars Good hardware, useless software., 28 Aug 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I'm actually using this for freeview tv and radio (unlike everyone else it seems).
The drivers on the CD are the latest version, all other drivers (found on google and from windows update) are older and do not work. I also had to disable windows automatic driver install to keep the drivers from the CD installed.

The bundled software (BlazeVid) is terrible: it didn't find any channels and seems like something from 1998.

Windows Media Center works (an annoying £6.99 upgrade for Windows 8!), except for that if you minimise it, it crashes (only in live TV mode).

If I'd paid any more than £10 for it I'd be upset given the difficulty of installation, but it works solidly and has great reception, so I'm not too bothered. (On that note, the supplied magnetic ariel only works if its placed on something metallic, like a radiator).

4.0 out of 5 stars Great for USB sticks, not so sure about more power hungry HD's., 20 Aug 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
It was instantly recognised after a reboot in Windows 8, and it is fast with usb3 HD's and usb3 sticks.
However, it wouldn't power up a laptop HD in a USB caddy (WD scorpio blue) - it just clicked every 5 seconds, while it works fine in the laptop's own USB2 ports.

Still works years after purchase, unlike sandisk cards bought at the same time which lost all data.

This is by far the most content-rich RE book I've read (and I've read most of them).
If you read one book about RE, make it this one.

Great product. Eventually, the jet clogs up with old oil and becomes more like a water pistol than a mist spray. A thorough soak and wash with detergent fixes that though.

Very narrow - not for those with wide faces since they let water in at various levels of tightness.
