5 out of 5 eggsGood unit

Pros: Easy install
Works with Linux
Good quality

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: Bought this to pick up ATSC channels for my MythTV box. Works very well with Slackware 14.1 (I'm running the 3.18.11 kernel from -current.) Just plugged it in and added it to my tuner list with no issues.

Sensitivity is good - it picks up channels as well as my TV's ATSC tuner does, with no drop-outs or bad channels.

The bundled antenna is directional (needs to be repositioned for each channel) so isn't terribly useful for a media center, but would probably be fine for watching TV on the go. (I'd planned on using my own omnidrectional antenna anyway, so this isn't an issue for me.)

Overall very pleased with this unit!

2 out of 5 eggspoor performer

Pros: picks up many but not all the OTA channels
it does work, sort of, on both desktop and on laptop

Cons: in spite of installing updated driver for Win 8, the images stutter, CTD, stops responding; frequently have to use task manager to stop and start over
Same problem but not quite as bad when using on a Dell Inspiron 5100 laptop
ArcSoft TotalMedia s/w bundled with it is primitive and limited.
Only OTA channels it recognizes are the ones it scans, you can not enter a specific channel
The s/w does not have a feature to switch to previous channel.

Other Thoughts: Kworld has yet to respond (over a week old now) to question I sent
some people wrote they got VLC working with this tuner, but details are limited and may have been under Linux; I use Windows.
ArcSoft said they wrote the s/w app with features at the direction of Kworld. No update in s/w since say 2010 other than a driver released about 2012

All in all, just barely worth the price. I get to watch the few channels I want, but the image and sound stutters and halts and on other channels the s/w just stops period that I use Task Manager to end the process and start over. I had hoped for better than what it delivers. Oh, and there's no rhyme nor reason to why it opens the channel it does when the s/w is started.

3 out of 5 eggsKnow product limitations

Pros: HD recording, Ease of use with Windows Media Center. Good price.

Cons: Records in a MPG format that can only be read by authoring computer meaning you can not watch what you recorded on another computer or watch what has been recorded and record another program at the same time, this severely restricts the freedom to watch what you want when you want. At first I could only get the USB tuner to stay on for a few minutes, then it would lose the connection every time and be quite hot. I finally figured out that it required a separately powered USB port (not a seprerate port, just the the USB hub must have a robust power supply). Once on a powered USB port it has work reliably.

4 out of 5 eggsCool Beans

Pros: Nice price, fast free shipping.

Cons: None.

Other Thoughts: I love reading reviews about products on this site, how people have horrible things to say about products and how they break in ten minutes. So far everything I have purchased on this site does what it is suppose to. But hey, stuff happens, that is to be expected with any purchase online or in a brick & mortar store. It's stil funny as heck reading some of these reviews. (^_^)

5 out of 5 eggsWorks great

Pros: Works on windows 7 64 with windows media center. I can watch local channels now.

Cons: Its only digital, I was hoping to hook up my old VHS player to transfer some old movies over, but the vhs player is analog. Oh well, no big deal, I ordered another device for that.

5 out of 5 eggsGood for OTA

Pros: This is my second purchase of this product. i have had this product for a few years. I recently purchased a second usb tv stick because I was getting tried of paying for cable tv. Now, with this tv stick I get almost 20 plus channels for free( location does determine how many channels you can get). I am get channels like bounce,get tv, abc, fox, cbs, cw, my 68,tbn, etc. Then just buy netflix and /or hulu for the rest of the shows. Im saving about $80 a month now.

Cons: Not really a con but if you are live in a moderate to bad location you will need a antenna with an amplifier to pick some channels.

Other Thoughts: If you dont have a cd rom/drive, you will need to down drivers and software from makers website. I recommend just using Windows Media center with this device.

5 out of 5 eggsWorks well with Linux OS

Pros: Works well with Win7 64 bit on a Intel Core 2 Duo, 2.2Ghz cpu, notebook computer
Works well with Linux Mint 17, Kernal 3.16.13, with Kaffeine media player and Intel Core I3 1.33Ghz cpu, notebook computer
TV Tuner software, supplied on DVD works OK, on Win 7 64 bit
Tuner seems to work about the same as the tuner on my HD TV, at bringing in tv channels and playing them.

Cons: Unit gets quite warm during operation.

Other Thoughts: Note: I am only using this unit for receiving over the air HD TV stations.
I don't have cable TV, so I can't comment on the QAM performance.

The unit I received was a Kworld 435Q V3, which appears to be the most recent version of this model.

Quick delivery to Lindsay, ON

Very pleased, at this point, with the performance of the item.

5 out of 5 eggsTwo Working Great!

Pros: I got the ones that work good with recent Linux distros and MythTV. Good and fast tuning.. Turns red when in use. Will buy more of these soon.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: Had to use with USB 3.0 ports in Linux because they are V3... bulk mode transport. Haven't tried them in Windows at all...
