Anyone have an OBD2 scanner?

Dose anyone have or have used a OBD2 scanner, say the ones you can get at Canadian tire or other parts stores? I have heard good things and bad, but nothing on whether it is worth it or not. People say the more you spend the better the unit. Want to get one but would like some input from people who have one.

I have one made by Actron, one of their higher models. I like it, it gives you the code and the description on the display. Saves time by not having to look it up in the book. Do you ever plan on doing a tuner eventually? Like an SCT? If you do, I'd wait and put the money toward the tuner, and you will get a OBDII reader in the tuner.
