Which programmer is recommended?

Hi all.
I'm presently still using a Picstart Plus to program my pics (I write my programs in mplabX & then import the hex file into mplab IDE 8.9 to program, but now wish to upgrade to use some chips that Picstart Plus does not support.
 
My question is which would be the least hassle programmer to switch to, the chip I intend to use is the PIC18F47K40. I've seen  a few videos with bad points stated on some of them so just looking for advice & guidance to avoid pitfalls....

    As far as I can tell, they are all as bad as each other :)
     
    Filter by ones that actually support your chip.
     
    ICD4s are 50% off at Microchip at the moment. PICKit4 is cheaper, if they have any.

    I would go with the PICkit 4. It programs faster than the PICkit 3 and is reasonably priced.

    The PICKit4 are out of Stock Again.  The Ship date is April 27.
    And you would need an adapter if you are Programing chips off of the Board.
