I'm not sure if this is a true SDR or like the RadioJet it's kind of in between.
Looks interesting.

They claim it to be SDR. The spec says, however, it is a: Dual conversion super-heterodyne with low-IF , I-Q digital sampling So it is not one of the good frontend sampling ones.
It seems to be a nice all in a box solution. Most SDRs require a computer for the software to run, which gives you the advantage of using different software.
Unfortunately there are some limits that I would not like. The HF coverage is from 500 kHz to 30 MHz. I would prefer the frequencies below down to at least 10 kHz. There is a lot going on from NDBs to even the new hamradio MW band. On the upper limit you would be missing 6m/50 MHz. The 70cm band is also only starting at 438 MHz. You also would have to find out the receive quality, they don't say a word about that.
The price tag seems allright. So for those happy with the specs it should be acceptable.
