I got an Actron $40 one from Amazon. All it does is show a code, cross reference with the book, fix, clear code. Not sure what else a home garage mech would need?

I got a USB scanner for $12 from fleebay. (http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/ws/eB...=STRK:MEWNX:IT)

Say what you want - it works great. There is a bunch of free / open source software you can use.

Scantool.net
EasyODBII
ODB2Spy
ScanMaster (DEMO - the full version is sweet but expensive)
wODBCRAZY

With all of the free ones you can read and clear codes and most of them will do do frees frame data and give you the raw numbers from all the sensors.
