I haven't personally tried one, but Cen-tech is HF's house brand. Built to HF's exacting standards. (hint, hint)

Might be worth a try though, they do stand behind their products.

I've just had bad experiences in the past with HF electronics, power tools, anything I could not look at and come to a logical conclusion, "Is this any good"?

What do you need to do, read and clear codes or look at engine data in real-time?

If you just need to read and clear codes, you can do it for a lot less than $100.00.

If you need to look at live engine data and the $100.00 scanner will show all the detail you need, it's a BARGAIN.

If you have a smartphone you can install an app called Torque for $5 bucks. That and a spiffy $13 OBD2 to Bluetooth/WIFI adapter from amazon and you can both read codes and observe real time information. I have an android phone that uses the bluetooth adapter. If you have an Iphone you need a wifi adapter.

If you want more details, just ask.

I second the torque app and an inexpensive Bluetooth adaptor I picked up on eBay. Shows real time data for sensors. I have about $20.00 total invested and it's paid for itself 100s of times over.

Thanks John, but I just had another thought. My truck is an 2004 ford diesel. Will any of these scanners work on it? I want to buy the right scanner the first time. No sense buying two.

I have a 2004 Ford Diesel. Works fine. Great for monitoring Engine Coolant temp vs. Engine Oil Temp (EOT) differential. It has told me that I am needing to have my oil cooler replaced. It also is telling me that I have a bad sensor and a few glow plugs not working. Will get it all fixed at the same time.

Here is the adapter I bought on amazon...

Hello dave8n in Pa,

Is this the model? This one works good, including live data and snap shot cababilities. Includes free updates and USB port for computet interface. Payed more then $100 for this one though,
