    Not yet. The PICkit3 maybe a bit faster but I have yet to see a decent review.

    The PICKit-2 new software is much faster.

    PICkit-2 comes already assembled and with leads and 2 CD's. By using a simple connector shown on Talking Electronics site you can do In-Circuit Programming.
    All my projects now use surface mount components. Once you have used them you never go back to through-hole.

    A surface-mount project looks so simple because all the components seem to disappear.

    The PICKit-2 new software is much faster then what ?

    I think everything on the CD's can be downloaded from the microchip site.

    It can, you can even download the circuit diagram, the system firmware, and build your own.
