Well, as with any tool, it depends on what you're planning on doing.

Do you foresee the need to program PALs?  GALs?  MCUs?

How about testing old TTL packages?

Do you need program the old 3-rail EPROMs? (e.g. 2704, 2708)?

I like the Xeltek Superpro as well.  I'm a little shy about the Chinese 
USB models because you don't know what the heck is in them.  But you 
can't beat the price.  Some folks like the Willem-based programmers.
