USB cables high-quality and use extra ferrite clamps.
First topic show the SNR levels and USB noise on 480 MHz
Some units the SNR are 2 - 3 dBm higher.
! - Also notice the very high USB noise level coming from the Airspy-mini on 480MHz - !
Using RSP1A in VHF and UHF range the SNR and AGC is acting different as show in other units.

Some other screens show USB noise level on 960 MHz
Screen 1
NoelecSmart-V4 + RTLSDR-V3
Screen 2
AIRSPY-mini + NoelecSmart-V4
Screen 3
AIRSPY-mini + RTLSDR-V3

! - Also notice the very high USB noise level coming from the Airspy-mini on 960MHz - !

In this fallow up the screens show different noise levels between the units. Some more expensive units show very high noice and some lower priced units show lower noice level.
When you search or buy a unit this information be helpful to find your best choice.
