VSI-2534 ECU Reprogrammer DG Technologies - Eric Sprague, Manager/Shop Foreman at Kirks Management Co.
Overall very happy with my VSI. I've had it for a few years now, no real issues with it. Scan tool software that came with it, Palmer XL Scan standard leaves alot to be desired, but no real issues with the tool itself. Quick to connect to vehicles, functions as advertised. The software interface can be a little clunky, but all in all, a solid tool.
EETH300 Thermal Imager Snap-on - Eric Sprague, Manager/Shop Foreman at Kirks Management Co.
I was quite excited to add this to my diagnostic arsenel. The potential to be able to visualize thermal properties is a huge help in many of the vehicles I see on a regular basis. The biggest drawback I have experienced with this tool is the resolution is not good. While I get that there are going to be surface features that may not show up with the greatest clarity on a thermal camera, there are much higher resolution options that will give obje Read more...
Remote Assisted Programming Kit (RAP) Drew Technologies - Daryl Fraser, Manager at Colby & Gale Svc Station Inc
Recieved our RAP kit from Drew Tech today. We are excited about implementing this tool in the near future and will post a further review when we have used it. Great customer service experience so far.
Durabook SA14 i7 Laptop AE Tools - Jamey Thornton, Owner/Technician at Dikes-Thornton Automotive Inc.
I finally purchased the Durabook from AE Tools, I have wanted one for years, but just didn't want to spend the money for a new lap top vs. a refurbished one. I have been using it for a few months now and I am really glad I got it. The terabyte hard drive is partioned into 6 drives. I have GM, Chrysler, Ford, European, on separate partions, Toyota, Honda and Nissan together and Other Asian on the last partition. Read more...

(iATN Note: At the time of review, this product was titled "Durabook Lap Top by AE Tools").
CReader HD Plus Launch Tech - Ricky McClintic, Technician at X-pert Automotive
Good product. Paid for itself in 1 use! Gives detailed codes and a wide range of Pids to help me in my diag.
Remote Assisted Programming Kit (RAP) Drew Technologies - Darren O'Gorman, Technician at Auto Analyzers
They are working out a few bugs, but it is only going to get better. The idea is solid and I am looking forward to doing Chryslers soon. Great company, good people.
Remote Assisted Programming Kit (RAP) Drew Technologies - Jim O'Neill, Owner/Technician at Chino Autotech
I've really just received my new RAP unit from Drew Technologies. I'm giving it 5 stars for the concept and implementation of what can be a real time saver for our shop. Our techs, skilled as they are, often avoid the flash programming of ECMs because of the necessity to stand-by like an E.R. doctor over a delicate patient. The warnings that accompany the instructions make some techs very nervous. Some manufacturers do not communicate their metho Read more...
MaxiCheck Pro Autel - Evan Warden, Technician/Shop Foreman at First Class Auto
This tool is great for quick diagnostics and way more thorough than a "code reader". It does have some bi-directional capabilities for ABS where applicable. I would give it a 5 star, but the fact that it advertises TPMS and in fact does not cover TPMS at all is a minus for this product. If they didn't advertise it for TPMS, then I would give it a five.
MaxiSys Mini Autel - Zachary Dean, Technician at Main Street Garage
Purchased this as my personal scan tool. I have the MS906 corded version. it has been working well for about a year now. The shop i work at has a Matco Maximus, Snap-On Verus, and a slightly older Launch X431. I would take the Autel over those any day! Other techs use my Autel much more often than I use the shop tools. This is by far the best scan tool for the Money!
Maximus Matco Tools - Morgan Wells, Technician at Car-X
This rebranded Launch scan tool is overpriced, slow, has text written in poorly translated english, and is completely underwhelming compared to almost any other scan tool out there. I used it for a year and hated it. "But wait" says the salesman, "there's plenty of features you won't find on a Snap On". Sure, there'll be a button for something you want to perform. But once you click said button, you'll be greeted with a screen that states, "Th Read more...
