Not For Mac
 
This review is from: Plextor External High Speed USB Mini Digital HDtv Receiver PX-HDTV500U (Personal Computers) I got very excited when I read about this product online. But I missed the small print and saw there's a 3GHz CPU requirement for HD on the Amazon review below. Plus, I checked to see it's a Windows(R)-only device. Sorry Mac OS users. Otherwise, it's genius! So, perhaps I'll wait for version 2.0.

CPU Requirement
 
This review is from: Plextor External High Speed USB Mini Digital HDtv Receiver PX-HDTV500U (Personal Computers) Plextor's website says you need at least a 3Mhz CPU to get high definition (1 Mhz for standard definition).

Good Until It Stopped Working
 
This review is from: Plextor External High Speed USB Mini Digital HDtv Receiver PX-HDTV500U (Personal Computers) This unit worked quite well in New York City with antenna placed in window. I received many channels and pictures were excellent on 19 inch PC LCD monitor. However, after a few months, without changing anything, the unit just stopped working. The unit has a one year warranty, but trying to return the unit for repair or replacement was useless. Evidently tech support c...

Item did not work
 
This review is from: Plextor External High Speed USB Mini Digital HDtv Receiver PX-HDTV500U (Personal Computers) I had tried another digital receiver prior to purchasing the Plextor receiver. The previous receiver worked very well except it got very hot after only 30 minutes of use, so I returned it. The plextor receiver was rated very well so I purchased it. I liked the design as it had vents built in to allow for cooling, however, the cable/antenna connection was flimsy. U...

Did not work
 
This review is from: Plextor External High Speed USB Mini Digital HDtv Receiver PX-HDTV500U (Personal Computers) Did not work on any computer. I gave it a 2 only because I can use the digital antennae on my HDTV to get over the air HD, on channels my cable company does not carry in HD. Pretty expensive for this use, but not a total loss.

Truly plug and play HDTV
 
Having bought other such devices (TV tuner cards and the like) in the past and having had pretty sketchy experiences with these, I wasn't holding by breath when I bought this, however, it was very easy to install (no opening the case for once) and after spending about 2 minutes letting it search for stations it popped up with a list of 20+ HD stations available, all of which come in very clearly and without any pauses or glitches. Now that's how technology is supposed to work! Highly recommended...

No Windows 7, now or ever.
 
This review is from: Plextor External High Speed USB Mini Digital HDtv Receiver PX-HDTV500U (Personal Computers) I've not actually gotten this thing to work yet so I don't know about the quality.But according to tech support, Plextor does not support W7 on ANY device they make, including this one.Only XP and VISTA for this product with no plans on writing a W7 driver.So unless you have REALLY old computers, look for another one.

This Rocks
 
Just got my Plextor HD tuner. Works like a million bucks. Just load the software plug in the unit a go. If you want HD TV this thing is the way to go.
