Good scanner bad software...
Pros: The scanner connects to the car.
Cons: The free software provided is useless and didn't work on any car I tried it on.
Other Thoughts: I would purchase the scanner againg but I would just buy the cheapest listed ELM327 scanner and find my own software

Doesn't work-no customer support!
Cons: Can't get ELM OBDII 327 to work with my netbook. Got in touch with the "Scan Tools" software company that came with the unit and they said that NewEgg was NOT an authorized distributor and they were not sure how I obtained the software. Email to Newegg to resolve issues went unanswered.
Other Thoughts: Not even heavy enough for a good paperweight! Hopefully, after all I went through to get this unit to work, I'll get a refund.

Pros: Works as described, perfect. Installed it on a Win7 Pro 64 laptop and an older Vista 32 laptop just to try out different scenarios. Had to finagle the port config a bit (read my Other) however, once that was done it worked like a charm. Demoed all the OBDII softwares provided which also worked as described. $19.99 on sale, couldn't pass it up.
Cons: Configuration can be a bit tricky, but what do you want for $20. I worked for Gm for 16 years, scan tools are $2k +.
Other Thoughts: Win7Pro64 / Vista 32 – PC running, plug in OBDII USB, STOP windows driver install process! Install CD in drive. Go to device manager, find uninstalled device and reinstall drivers from rom drive (let the OS find the drivers). Restart PC, leaving OBDII connected.

Pros: Easy to use interface
Cons: The software that came with it was a little hard to install - see below.
Other Thoughts: because there was no autorun and directly clicking on the install .exes didn't work. Ended up having to run the install.bat to get it running. really wasn't much of a hassle though, and the software ran just fine after that.

Pros: This is a general el327 style obd2 adapter. This adapter will work with most of the free scanner software on the market! Good build and worthy of purchase
Cons: none really.
Other Thoughts: I had one of these then I bought a bluetooth variant and now I can use Torque (android app). This unit is now in my garage and the software is loaded on a netbook that I use as a backup.
