    Fr24 box is made to be radar . And nothing else. Dongle is made for Dvb-t. It gives good results as radar.

    It depends where your interest lies...
    * If you want to feed to provide information about the aircraft in your area and the primary interest is in the aircraft - then it is best to try to get the FR24 box.
    * If your interest is in the technical challenge of building the receiver and antenna - then the dongle etc. is the way to go.

    100% agree, but there is no way to compare FR24 box with DIY as W4lRon did, and FR24 box is not something you can buy.
    I do have FR24 box, but I wanted to do it myself, so i made one more radar with dongle+ above mentioned antenna

    Find it on Ebay.com or Ebay.co.uk - order from China / Hong Kong / Singapore the sellers ship worldwide, many for free ... Typical price is 10 - 15 USD.

    So how do you want to use the dongle? - with Windows, with Linux with a Raspberry Pi computer? - you say what you are trying to do and people here will help you.
