Yes, My friend bought one of those programmers. They have them on Ebay for 15 dollars delivered. He likes it.
the only thing he doesn't like about it, is not ZIF socket. got to be careful on removing the chips.
Also, (IF i remember correctly) the programmer does *not* list the 16f648A chip as a programmable chip, but lists the 16f628. Since the chips are interchangeable, he has been programming the 16F648A with the 16F628 include file. Works like a charm...<g>
