OSB-II Readers

Hey guys, I'm fairly new here. I found these OSB-II readers and wanted to see if anyone here has any experience with them?

Since I'm new it wouldn't let me post the actual link to the page but go to dealextreme dot com and search under car accessories and then OSB-II. There are a lot of bluetooth and wireless receivers and software for a laptop. It's only $50 but if there are some experienced users here that could point me in the right direction, I'd greatly appreciate it!

Suggestions?

Ryan

From what I've read, the BT models usually have low refresh rates, WiFi is faster.

OBDII readers are cheap or the can be very expensive. Its the software that comes with it that can make all the difference. Some of the cheap ones come with freeware software which may or may not have the functions you want. Know what you want to do with it, just get the codes or do you want graphs and instant MPG, Laptop, Hand held or one that connects to smart phone. Do your research before you buy.
If its a one time deal some of the auto parts stores will do the reading for you and reset the code.
