New iCarsoft Code Reader

I just got an email yesterday from FCPEuro and they have a new Volvo specific scan tool that apparently reads and deals with all kinds of Volvo issues including airbags, etc. For $150 it's pretty tempting. Any opinions on it? There's a video of this too on their site.

Snatched one of these up on Amazon, and it's glorious. Plug-and-play, ease of use, comprehensive and very nicely featured.
With this scanner, I was able to read and clear a troublesome Airbag code on a 2002 V70. It's also capable of connectiong to the rest of the various modules in the vehicle, and that's how I was able to determine that the HVAC controls had a dead spot in one of the dials. Talk about details! It also works well on my 98 S70 as well as the 08 C30 I just bought. Can't comment on anything newer but it should work well for you, judging by your sig. I was actually coming into this forum specifically to let everyone know it's worth it.
