Better scanner advice?

That come in another topic as a hijacking.
There are affordable laptop-based scanners, that gives pretty advanced real time engine scanning and readouts. There is few of them, but having no programming knowledge, I can hardly tell them apart. There also are some gimmicks on sites. One scanner sells for $120 with temporary software, but software key is $90.
Can anybody tell their experience with those, or any other up to $300?
