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

Pros:
It really works. Displays error code, reset it etc. I used it with Nissan Sentra 1999 and Nissan Maxima 2002. It displays also error codes, which don't light Check Engine indicator. USB cord is long enough to connect to notebook both on driver's seat and passenger seat.
Cons:
1. Bad contact in OBD2 plug. Sometimes I was forced to keep it with a hand.
2. Using this device I needed to reser it several times. I'm not sure if it is software or hardware bug.
3. Sofware has some bugs. Not all, but one of programs connected but said, that my car is not OBD2 complied, other wasn't able to connect. Other software worked nice and gave me all information and error codes.
Other:
Delivery time is terrible. Hongkong Post stored it for some weeks before sending it to me. It's really not nice.
Bottomline:
Good buy for it's money.
