Seagate Backup Plus Slim External USB 3.0 2TB Hard Drive Review
The PCTV nanoStick  - The PCTV nanoStick
Wed, July 09 2008 | 4:01PM | PermaLink Feedback?
“The PCTV nanoStick is great value for money if you’re looking for the smallest USB digital TV tuner on the market. But similar to other Pinnacle TV tuners we had a nightmare scanning for TV channels using the supplied antenna. Internet radio quality was quick and easy. After quickly glancing through Pinnacle’s forums, it seems a lot of other users have problems scanning for channels - regardless of reception area. When we gave up and connected a rooftop aerial, video quality was good - even at full screen - and the added benefit of being able to trim videos and burn them onto DVD means you can watch recorded programs on the big screen once you get back to the comfort of your living room. Advanced users not needing to compromise on size should look at Pinnacle’s PCTV Dual DVB-T Diversity Stick, which sports twin digital TV tuners so you can watch one channel while recording another or record two different channels at once. Overall, the PCTV nanoStick is an attractive package considering its size and price, but it comes with a serious caveat: you need to get the aerial in just the right position to work perfectly on all channels – or just ditch it and use a proper indoor aerial to get the best signal every time. But that’s defeating the object, of course.”
