Great wide-band SDR  Time owned: 3 to 6 months
I'm using the NetSDR as a panadapter on an FTdx-5000, connected to the IF port. It sends up to 1.6 MHz of IQ data over an Ethernet connection to my PC. I'm mostly using SDR-Radio Console software, which provides point-and-click tuning for the FT5K. SpectraVue is another option.

NetSDR doesn't require an external soundcard or preamp like some SDRs do. The wideband capability means I can monitor (or record) an entire band at once.

Setup was a little involved, but once going, everything has been working great. Highly recommended.

My only complaint is that NetSDR isn't compatible with CW Skimmer yet, but that's really a third-party software issue.

Brilliant networkable low-noise SDR !  Time owned: 0 to 3 months
I've owned a number of SDR's from RF-Space, and have been delighted with each one. The Net-SDR however, takes SDR performance to a new level. The receiver has a very low noise floor, great minimum discernible signal levels, and of course wideband capture. Tested over 10KHz to 34MHz, the receiver performs very well, with no internal spurs or noise being found during careful testing. Coupled with an external V/U/SHF receiver, the Net-SDR is a fantastic pan-adapter. From testing, the Net-SDR easily exceeds the specifications stated on the RF-Space website. The radio has been mostly used with Spectravue, but also tested with the new SDR-Radio console software, which again opens up an entirely new world of usability.

I have written up my experiences with it, and added some screen grabs at http://www.uhf-satcom.com/sdr-netsdr/

Overall, highly recommended, low noise network attached receiver!
