The WR-G313e receiver was reviewed by a number of reputable international radio magazines with very impressive conclusions:
Short Wave Magazine
"With no need to open up the PC, installation is extremely straightforward. All you do is connect up the power,
antenna and USB cables and run the software installer that's on the CD. It took all of five minutes
before I had the receiver set up and ready to go."
"Overall, the G313, in both its forms, remains my receiver of choice when trying to extract weak signals out of
noise and interference. The Synchronous a.m. mode is particularly effective, and the i.f. filters manage to cut a very sharp line
between passband and stopband."
"If you have been tempted by the G313i but couldn't physically accommodate it in your PC.
then I can certainly recommend getting the new G313e. Although dearer than the G313i, it is
still excellent value as you get top-class performance and a lot of powerful features for the money,
as well as the option of mobile operation. WiNRADiO has shown that it can keep a steady stream of
software upgrades (all free) and the availability of a good DRM demodulator also helps to keep these
receivers ahead of the pack. It's not really a beginner's radio, but anyone who is serious about h.f.
listening should definitely consider the G313. Now that we have two versions of it, there's no reason not to."
