I have used one of these units, and diagnosed quite a few problems on location with one as well. However the actual LCD interface is not that great, I always use it with a notebook/netbook to get readable results

Do not expect the world of it, it will not match a $20,000 SA, but like I said I have used it to successfully diagnose a few major problems I was having with interference.

Cheers

Have one of these for quick and dirty scans.
Practically worthless without having a notebook connected. :?
Otherwise, can give some good results and if you are pretty careful with what to press and when, you can record and replay your scans. :o

Also, software needs somework.
