Best Cheap SDR Dongle???

I'm pretty new to this and I'm looking to buy a decent cheap SDR dongle for my pc, just to listen to some frequencies on locally, any recommendations? Budget £30

If you don't mind waiting for the slow boat from China then they don't come a lot cheaper than this:

I just got myself one of these.

About 27 quid including mag mount and 3 antennas, delivery was just 2 days on ebay so looks like UK stock available.

Very impressed with it, should have bought one of these things much sooner.

Granted it is more expensive than the link that Admiral provided, but supposed to be better spec.
