The official Microchip PICkit products are more robust, and not so  
expensive if you buy just the device itself, without the "starter  
kit" that includes a CD-ROM and demo board.

Search the Microchip store for PG164120. Unfortunately, it seems that  
the price has gone up from $25 when I bought my PICkit 2 to $39.99 now.

"PICkit 3 only" is part PG164130 for $44.95

Both are less than the eBay price of $66.

I recommend against the clones. I started with one, only saved $5,  
and it burned out on me. The low quality is not worth the $5 savings.
