I have HiLo Systems programmers/testers, the adapters are not an issue.
Expensive but excellent stuff, never had a single problem.

I'm using Willem too. Cheap and reliable. It does have limitations in chip support, but again, its CHEAP.

I have used a Willem USB programmer for ages. Can't remember it has ever let me down for HDD work.

I recently picked up a MiniPro TL866... just because it was dirt cheap, and I was in shopping modus.

Down Under Dave from EEVblog did recently review this unit. I reckon his conclusion was the unit offers a lot of functionality for it's low price (review video found in first post - run youtube full screen to see program interface):

Search ebay for "tl866 programmer".

Watch out for the latest serial flash memories. Some are 1.8V devices, eg EN25S40.

Those eBay programmers appear to handle only 3.3V and maybe 2.5V devices.
