Sorta a thread-necro, but better than making a new one? Anyone got advice on a good source for socket adaptors for a programmer, or any sort of general-purpose advice?.
I'm seeing a huge variance in price, obviously the "brand name" ones are significantly more expensive than the $5 ones from china, and I'm sure there's quality differences as well, but I'm also seeing build differences, adaptors that are clearly just a single board with the pins mapped from from the socket to DIP (e.g. PLCC32 to DIP32), and others for the same socket type but with 2-3 stacked boards and seemingly more going on there (resistors, jumpers, etc). I did some research but I feel like I didn't do the right kind, and that some of this is just stuff you get from experience.
I'm a newb to this but it's something I've wanted for a bit now and finally had a couple reasons for getting one and would like to play around a bit learning, though with luck could conceivably have use for this kind of thing for MESS later...I have various old ROM-based things.
