    I have the best of both - I have a real Microchip PICkit 2 with this particular ZIF socket board - works great and supports some of the other PICs used here on other projects. You can get the ZIF board separately for about $10 - well worth it - just remove the top plate because it just gets in the way.

    Several people that have bought clones over the years love them till they have problems and then buy a real one.
    I can't recommend a clone even being first in line for "cheap".

    I bought mine from J1Sys and had trouble getting the first one to work. He sent a replacement to me with no problems. It has worked fine.

    Ok forget problems, features, etc. How about just supporting a member who has supported the site and all of his fellow members.

    Now that is a compelling reason that I did not consider.
