Default Good burner to buy??

Hey guys, I have decide that I want to go the turbo-edit route when I finally get boosted. I tried doing a search but could not seem to get any results that were specific to my question. I am looking for a good and reasonably priced burner to purchase. For those that have them, can you give me some advice on what I would want to look for. Thanks!

There's a new burner that the guys on the Uberdata board have been talking about, it's only *****$75***** (at least right now) and its USB. uses the power supply right off your usb port.

http://www.moates.net/gmecm/hworder.html

if you scroll down a bit it's called "BURN1". It programs AT29C256 chips, which are the chips of choice if you're chipping your ecu. it's been tested, and works. I wish I would've known about this before I bought my Batronix burner (over $120, not usb). btw Batronix's USB burner is over $200.

If you want to check out the thread on the uberdata board that describes how to get it to work, here's the link. you have to register for the board to see it but that's no big deal.

Yeah, I decided to spend the few extra bucks and buy the preassembled one. If I had bought the kit, I would still need to buy the power adapter, cable, etc. and it just didn't seem worth it. I think I ended up paying about $15 more than if I had bought the do-it-yourself kit.

EDIT:
Sorry, make that about $40 more. Memory not what it used to be...

Willems burner off ebay for $63 shipped with ZIF socket.

Had the Moates burner been available at the time I would have bought that one. Its much smaller and has a case.

Ok...I ordered the Moates burner and it should be here today. I was reading the write-up from the UberData site (link listed above) and was wondering if I will have to use both the TunerPro RT and TurboEdit software or will I be able to burn the chips directly from the TurboEdit software. I am not too afraid of desoldering/soldering the chips and all that crap, but I have never burned any chips or anything like that. I don't have my set-up in yet, but I want to have the ECU chipped and know that I can burn the chips when I do have everything bolted up and ready to go.

If you sodder in a zif socket into the spot where the chip will go, you can replace chips and reburn as you please, with no soddering. the low profile (blue) zif sockets are available on the moates web site also.
