Hello evryone, I am new here. I am very pleased to find this forum, and judging from the replies I've read, this forum is full of helpful and knowledgeable people.
Okay, now to my question. I am looking to buy an EEPROM programmer, which I will use mainly on flashing computer BIOS chips. I hastily flashed my gf's laptop with a wrong BIOS and now it's dead. Good thing I have a backup of the bios file. All I need now is a writer for its SST39SF040 chip. Can you recommend a programmer for this kind of job with a fairly wide range of chip support?
I am considering a TOP2004 or TOP2005, as these are the "cheaper" ones. Or are there other programmers which cost less?
By the way, what's the difference between the specs of TOP2004 and TOP2005? TOP2004 is somewhat cheaper, but I find it similar in specs to the TOP2005.
