tuner opinions?

I will be buying tuner soon but I'm not sure which one I should get? I definitely want a downloader/programmer type tuner. Not a chip. My question is what kind does everyone like and what are some key features to your programmer?

No chip? What's your reasoning for using an inferior product on a 7.3

I made my Samsung SGH-I997 send this.

if you have want a programmer buy a griffin programmer from php.
bill at php puts his custom tunes on an edge programmer.
custom tunes are better than generic superchip/edge/banks/bully dog tunes.

If you are set on a programmer take a look at what we offer with the INFINITY-dx. Its a programmer, scan tool, data logger, media payer for data logs and in the future if you want a chip you can use it as a switcher for all chips on the market.

Let us know if we can help you in any way.
