easiest kit ever!  Time owned: 0 to 3 months
First the bad news! Instructions are in German language! More, expect they reply in German only! Now the good news! Schematic is the only thing that is necessary, no German is required to build the kit! Google translator makes does job for you in case. More, they understand English! Transaction was smooth and I built the kit in one hour or so. Few components, no SMT. I also ordered the enclosure for another 7.50 euro. Connectors, the BNC and rca and the cable to connect it to the sound card were all included! It came with an excellent clear instructions sheet and a CD with SDR software. Just an impressive product which transform a downconverter, an homemade or an analog receiver such as the Icom IC-8500 into an SDR receiver. As all direct conversion IQ SDRs performance will depend on software, the soundcard and the processor you use. Overall this has been the easiest quality kit I built.
