    This appears to be a good low-cost alternative to the Picstart +, but I
    want to hear some opinions before I buy it. I'm just starting out in
    PIC programming, and this will be my first programmer. Anyone?

    I've used a couple of Olimex's MSP430 dev. boards, and they work OK.

    I've not used the PIC-MCP but I have used their PIC-ICD which performed
    exactly as it should. Actually better than the Microchip ICD1 I think,
    because the connector is more sensible for prototyping.

    If you want to use the 16F87x family I would suggest the ICD rather than a
    programmer. The ICD programs and debugs.
  4. Hello,
    I have been using this Olimex PIC-MCP with MPLAB-IDE 6.3 and it's
    working correctly.
