EEPRROM Programmer advice please

I don't know, I'm barely about these days (far too busy ) then two posts in one day...
...a friend has done a bad thing and written a proggie that's frankly well beyond my poor programming skills.
The result is a serious need for an EEPROM programmer:

Questions:
Would kind forum buddies mind recommending an EEPROM blower to this EEPROM n00b?
-Cheap (of course)
-Fairly simple to use
-Can handle a range of types*
*don't forget I'm into my Acorns as well as my Amigas
-Useful associated software..?

As a side question I rather like overclocking (old) stuff...
...how do reasonably modern EEPROMS compare to old ROMS with regard to the clock-speeds they can be pushed to?
...other helpful suggestions about EEPROM-blowing I'm too daft to even think of considering. eg:
Do you really need a UV lamp, or is a sunny windowsill good enough?

Thanks.

willem?
uv eraser can be bought cheaply off ebay too.

btw eeprom is Electrically Erasable, you will need UV thingie for EPROMs,
sun isnt much reliable and you can erase it forever)

I just got one of these and I really like it. It even works with my Windows 7 64bit Ultimate. It's very quick and easy to use.

Thanks chaps

Keeping an eye on this:

Looks like it covers all the bases I can think of.

A cheap clone I presume - is that such a bad thing as long as it works?

keep in mind that you'll also need a 16 bit adapter board to burn 40 pin amiga roms. (that ZIF socket is only 32 pin ...)

Excellent! Thank you.

I kind-of wanted the programmer I linked to as it's:
-Cheap
-Does lots of stuff, well you never know.
but:
as pointed out it won't do Amiga ROM's - a bit of an issue...

Now I have a plan:
Get the cheap multi-purpose one, assuming I win, then get the adaptor Chain suggested.


Of course I may come a-begging for further info if (when):
-I have trouble working out what EEPROMS are equivalent to Amiga & Acorn ROMs
-I have trouble working out the software - famously difficult..?

I bought mine (burner + adapter) from Sivava, major headaches until I figured out the adapter didn't work. Ended up buying another set from Kee electronics... the adapter from Kee works fine on both burners.

Next time, I'll definitely buy one with an enclosure.
