AutoProPad and Obdstar X300 DP, which better

Found an interesting discussion in a Facebook group. Copied here for all. Hope it helps.

Bid thanks to Kin Lee and Andrew Cuillo

Topic: AutoProPad and X300 DP key master, which one should you have?

Kin Lee: That AutoProPad’s the same platform as X-100 Pad 2 & double the cost, after 1st year will cost $900 a year where OBDSTAR’s only $170 a year for updates. Anytime a USA company takes over expect the price to pay much more with promises of good things to come, but will it come?

Andrew Cuillo: I have had autopropad and I haven’t had any problems they have tech support in us and team helping the us market add more cars nissan Smart keys are super quick

Kin Lee: Plus I seen AutoProPad do a 5 into 4 pin Nissan system & you need to read BCM write it down then enter it manually back into it then it’ll gave old & new pin where’s ODBSTAR does all this with 1 push

Andrew Cuillo: did u know the person who made ikey used to work for xtool

Andrew Cuillo: This is nissan

Kin Lee: ok used too so he no longer does

Kin Lee: what’s that pic of Toy or Nissan 20 pin?

Andrew Cuillo: Nissan Smart keys 4digit pin

Unlocks goes into programming just insert key and done

Kin Lee: every good Chinese tool does Nissan 20 pin Smart keys super fast & IKEY does it the fastest I ever used

Andrew Cuillo: And autopropad can do some bmws too

OBDSTAR X300 DP, BMW FEM/BDC smart key…

Andrew Cuillo: here is our group for it

AutoProPAD USA-(AutoProPad-LITE)

Kin Lee: what you doing after the 1st year? Paying $900?

Andrew Cuillo: $1000 a year

AutoProPAD 1 Year Updates & Support Subscription -by XTool

Kin Lee: $1000

Kin Lee: I just read Ray-Ray said $900 in a group

Andrew Cuillo: yes they give u one year for free Carey at American Key is the master distributor

Kin Lee: I know the 1st year is free with every tool & I’m talking about after that!

Andrew Cuillo: $1000 a year

Amanda has one

Kin Lee: that’s my point!! $1k after the 1st year OBDSTAR’s only $170, it’s just like Launch charges $900 after the 1st year & MyTab’s only $150

Kin Lee: I think your missing my point here, AutoProPad cost $2700 to buy & $1k after the 1st year, X300 DP cost $800 to buy & cost $170 the next year, so tell me how much better does $2700 get you in 2 years?

Kin Lee: And in 2 years X300 DP is still have faster CPU, bigger RAM, long lasting battery and higher resolution.

Andrew Cuillo: Kin Lee I see what your saying I got mine in the beginning for $1800 when there is something wrong I have someone to call and get the software fixed if there is a problem

Kin Lee: on top of all that OBDSTAR’s leading the way on VAG’s right now, look at their H110 I added a key to an 10 A6 in under 2 min as well as a 16 Jetta, can Autopropad do that too?

Andrew Cuillo: I know the other one is cheaper and faster I haven’t tried it yet maybe my next programmer will be x300 dp

Kin Lee: I’m looking for my next tablet to buy & all my research is pointing to OBDSTAR

Kin Lee: If I wanted a high dollar tablet that claims to be the best but running on a old platform I would have waiting a few more months & traded in my MVP for the Dumb Pro!

Kin Lee: The bottom line’s no 1 tool will ever do it all & I’m always looking for the best BANG for the $$, so I don’t mind having odometer change tool to get the jobs done without spending a lot & I’m pretty good @ that!!

Kin Lee: I just saved over $200 a years on auto insurance & got much more coverage from $25k/$50k to $100k/$300k & renters insurance for less $$ & I now pay $30 less a month with lots more coverage!! This is what I’m talking about paying more don’t always get you more in life!!

OBDSTAR X300 DP vs. Xtool EZ500 Full System Diagnostic Pad

Looking for a good full-system diagnostic pad: OBDSTAR X300 DP and Xtool EZ500 (same as PS80), which one better? Look here:

Hardware specification:

X300 DP-1

Function:

X300 DP-2

Car list:

X300 DP-3

OBDSTAR X300 DP Review:

1.by all accounts its the dogs doodahs on anything Honda including rematching ecu after flat battery, and as it includes all the green units F100 to F109 it seems to have a lot of token free coverage including it claims Toyota G and H reset, if just 70% of the claimed coverage works then its a lot of programmer for the money and paid for and in profit after half a dozen jobs.
Review:

2.its one of those units that may or may not be top draw but is easy to get payback on

xtool ez500 review:

1.I’ve only had Xtool EZ500 full diagnostic system for a few days, and will update my review as I get more familiar with mine, but so far I’m very impressed.

2.I can confirm it will read PIN code & program keys for a 2008 Jeep Wrangler, and appears to be accessing all other modules on that vehicle.

3.I also connected it to a 2001 Ford Sport Trac and it seemed to access all functions well.Also, on both of these vehicles it appeared to work fast.

4.I test it and it can record and playback live data.

5.It is really good and when it can diagnosis reports in PDF file.

6.The unit appears to be built very well and has a solid, professional feel to it. Activating / registering it online was simple and only took a few minutes.

7.The carrying case is well designed and well built, and carries the scanner and all the adaptors, cables, charger, etc. very well (though for convenience I’ll probably get a small case just large enough for the scanner / cable / OBD2 adaptor / charger since that’s what I’ll be using 90% of the time.)

8.If it proves to be durable, I think it is well worth the price

In conclusion, both Obdstar x300 dp and Xtool ez500 from OBD2TOOL have their own merits and demerits. Both are good at OBDII diagnostic and special functions for cars (heavy duty truck), though it’s kind of different in details, e.g. there are some special functions for some models that Obdstar supports while Xtool cannot support and vice visa. Besides, Obdstar key master dp wins in hardware design.

So, Obdstar x300 dp or Xtool ez500? It depends, depending on your purpose (functions you need) and models you have.
