Works as advertised. Decent remote. We have an analog cable system where I live, so this tuner enables me to use it, and at a great price. The TV Time software isn't bad either, though I use Windows Media Center by default.
No cons really. It was simple to install, setup, and program. Can't think of one negative.
If you plan to get over the air or cable digital channels though, you will need a converter, but those are cheap.

Decent card for analog broadcast/cable, reasonably clear picture (for analog), plays well with Media Center on Win 7 32-bit, does not hog PCI bus. Includes remote and FM tuner (I don't user either).
Latest driver a little difficult to find on vendor site. Don't bother with CD or included software - rubbish. Card is a little big; make sure you have room.
Driver offered by Windows Update didn't work. Head to vendor site, swear a little and just install the latest driver once you find it.
