Slim Design but Poor Quality for me!
Strengths: Very slim design for space saving!
Weakness: Very Poor TV Quality for me!
Some people said they got a good TV quality, but I don't! I got very poor TV quality. I will stay away from this product. The S/N is printed on CD, meanwhile it is in your CD ROM drive. There is a hand writing S/N on the package, not too professional to me! Save your $ to get something better than this!

MSI VOX TV Tuner
Strengths: Compact Size Low Price USB Powered Good TV Reception
Weakness: Weak Documentation
I am very satisfied with this product. Set-up was very easy using the supplied CD. The drivers on the website were the same as on the CD, so there was no need to download those. The TV reception using my cable connection was very good, with very little jitter. I have performed basic recording using the DVR, and it seems to also work well. I definitely recommend this product.

Strengths: external unit, relatively easy set up
Weakness: During setup, software requests serial number which is not the unit's S/N, but one(s) listed on cd-rom- a bit confusing. Bottom screen flickers.
What at first seems to be an attractive unit- external plu-n-play on a USB 2.0, is offset by some mild confusion in setting up software as well as flickering picture on bottom tird of the screen and audio being slightly out of sync.

I have used this tv tuner for...
Strengths: Has different jacks like A/V, Svideo, RCA, and audio out. Came with a lot of software like PVR, and a windvd tv tuner software. It is light and compact. The bag came in handy!
Weakness: Powers itself from the USB port. The antenna-in jack is too small for a regular outside cable wire. Software did not come with serial numbers, I think you have to buy the software yourself.
I have used this tv tuner for almost 3 months. With a regula antenna, i get good tv quality.
You might have problems trying to hook a video with RCA output to it.
When trying to put an antenna wire, you might trouble with little space given between the antenna-in jack and the audio-out jack. This can be annoying.

Strengths: compact, portable
Weakness: occasion drop frame, average audio
TV picture quality is reasonably well if the input signal is strong. Video Capture function is fine for an external unit. Picture quality is not as good as that of an internal card. The data transfer rate of USB2 may be the limiting factor. The included software has adequate functionality, though not very user friendly. The captured audio is only acceptable.

TV picture quality is reasonably well if the input signal is strong. Video Capture function is fine for an external unit. Picture quality is not as good as that of an internal card. The data transfer rate of USB2 may be the limiting factor. The included software has adequate functionality, though not very user friendly. The captured audio is only acceptable. Buttons in the remote control are "sticky".
