Works with OS X – OBDII USB Car Diagnostic Cable - Black + Blue + Orange (DC 12V) Reviews

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

Pros:
Easy to use, and compatible with Movi and Movi Pro, wich means you can use it directly on OSX, no need to connect it via a virtual machine. Took me 5 min to find a driver and erase my cars codes.
My software (movi) recognizes the chip as: ELM327 v1.4, don't know if cloned or not, but it works.
Cons:
The disk does not include any useful software for windows nor OSX Drivers.
The second is not a big con, because you can download the driver from here: http://www.ftdichip.com/Drivers/VCP.htm
Other:
For a more complete and less expensive software you can use this tool with a virtual machine and run it with window$ software.
Bottomline:
Could be cheaper but still is a good deal. You need a extra software, that means $50 - $120.
