Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:1 day to 1 week

Pros:
It's cheap. All cables are included. It's a nice tool when 'debugging' your car.
Solid metal casing - should be able to handle beeing used in a workshop.
For reading DTC codes and live data this does the job nicely
Cons:
It's a clone ELM327 so some programs can't be used.
At first it requires a bit of fiddeling to get it working like installing drivers and getting the right comport.
Other:
The supplied CD-R was blank but it's easy to find SW on the Internet so no biggie.
Bottomline:
If you have a car with OBDII if this is a must have. Can save you lots of $'s beeing able to see what the ECU have to tell about you r engine.
