looking for a good, reliable usb programmer.
I have a Wellon VP 280 wich I loved, but I screwed it up myself. So if anyone has one of these for sale, let me know.

Got a Top 3000 last month and it already crapped out today, so I'm a bit fed up with the chinese programmers.

Which programmers do you guys use?

They do crap out in time especially if they are physically stressed (like dropped). I use a TL866 Minipro for years and couple of times I had to open it up and re-solder the connections between the two PCBs. I don't have experience with your programmers but it may worth a try...

Got the Top 3000 working again.
But it still misbehaves with older roms, 2732 to 27128.
How does the minipro handle the older roms, especially the ones that need 25 volts?

Couldn't managed to burn a single 2732 with minipro yet :) The eproms I tried (AM2732 which is even 12V and other 21V eproms) might be faulty because I couldn't burn them with a standard willem programmer either...

2764's worked however...
