The USB stuff has no front end and stability and calibration is highly 
questionable..
How can you discriminate between mixes within the USB device and the 
signal of interest?
I will take my 141T or my 8566 over USB every time.
Rather lug a little weight around and know what I am seeing on the 
display is what is really out there.
There is a reason that usable SAs have weight to them and USB devices do 
not.

In this day and age, I don't think people should suffer through 141T spectrum analyzers or even a 8568- Spend your money an a nice USB unit instead.
