Autel MaxiScan MS309 CAN OBD II/EOBD Code Reader

4 out of 5 eggs Worked for my 2005 Chevy Cobalt 05/25/2014

This review is from: Autel MaxiScan MS309 CAN OBD II/EOBD Code Reader

Pros: Inexpensive. Simple to use. No batteries required at all. Worked: detected the P0455 code on my 2005 Chevy Cobalt and reset the code. What more could I ask? Would buy again.

Cons: Appears to be discontinued (couldn't find on Autel web site), but for this price that's OK with me. A little buggy/flaky at times - it didn't pick up the code, but a rerun picked up the error code. Need to look up codes on the web, but that's not a big deal.

Other Thoughts: Chevy dealer wanted $115 to read the codes. Difficult to tell from the web if this reader would work on my 2005 Chevy Cobalt, but tried it and it did. Paid for itself in one use.

After I purchased, I noticed there are small, inexpensive bluetooth-based auto code readers that can be controlled by a $5 phone app. Some people might prefer those but I've had no experience with them. Pleased and would buy again.

Kingston 8GB DataTraveler 100 G3 USB 3.0 Flash Drive (DT100G3/8GB)

2 out of 5 eggs Slow - why bother? 09/26/2013

This review is from: Kingston 8GB DataTraveler 100 G3 USB 3.0 Flash Drive (DT100G3/8GB)

Pros: It has worked reliably.

Cons: Slow. In real-world usage it's slower than an older USB 2 Corsair Flash Voyager (in both USB 2 & 3 slots). And my similarly-priced USB 3 ADATA S102 speed-wise is much faster.

Other Thoughts: Why bother with this slow drive when other reliable, similarly-priced products are available?
