'Q: PIC Programmers'

Sorry to rehash an old subject.

Can anyone recommend any PIC programmers for low volume production?
No real need for a gang programmer, just a good quality, reasonably
priced unit would be great.

Also - what are the drawbacks of using the picstart units for
production?  I know of several places doing this for low volumes, but
don't know if they'd have yield problems (or for what reasons).

Any info greatly appreciated.
Thanks

The Picstart is not a production programmer. It will not verify the chip
over the voltage range and marginal chips could slip past. It is also less
rugged than something like the PROMATE. I have used both along with the
Parallax programmer with no problems but I am not running high volume. When
I need volume I have had Microchip deliver them preprogrammed or one of the
Distributors like Future do it.
