Pinnacle PCTV HD Mini Stick
5 February 2009
Excerpt: It’s been almost a year since we tested Pinnacle’s original PCTV HD Pro Stick TV tuner. In that time, Pinnacle has fixed many of the original product’s shortcomings. The new PCTV HD Mini Stick is even smaller than the original HD Pro Stick, which was itself the size of a fat USB memory key. You could easily chuck the 1”x0.5” PCTV HD Mini Stick in your bag and never notice it. The remote is also slimmed down considerably and could slip into your back pocket comfortably.
Pros: So tiny you could sneak it into a maximum security prison.
Cons: NTSC capability makes it of limited value for most people.
Summary: Watching TV has got to be one of the most popular ways to pass or waste time the world over, next to probably our computers and the internet. Combining a computer with TV would make quite a bit of sense, especially with hi-def resolution monitors dropping in price and becoming more readily available to everyone.
Pros: Small and portable, Easy to use, Includes radio, Many options to configure to personal specs, Good reception in my area
Cons: Locks up and crashes every once in a while for some reason, Doesn’t work with Windows Media Center
