Scan Tools w/ Same Functionality As STAR But More Reliable Than Clone STARs
I'm wondering if there are solutions out there that offer the same capabilities as the clone STAR solutions out there but are far more reliable than the clone STAR solutions. I've purchased 2 clones (one from a forum member and one from eBay) and they have BOTH broken - one broke just over a year of having it and the most recent one just broke after 60 days. Worse part about it is that despite me disputing via PayPal this most recent one that has broken, it appears that somehow the seller will not be accountable.
It's not that I am using this thing every day - the tool is used maybe 6-10 times a year - so I'm not sure why they are breaking so prematurely.
Does anyone have any input here on other solutions that are backed by some sort of warranty?
