Which Cheap Logic Analyzer do you use?

Hello Guys,
Can you recommend a Cheap Logic Analyzer to me?
 
I don't need numerous channels.  I am developing a 40 pins 8 bit PIC MCU.
 
I do have a China clone logic analyzer but its connections are quite loose.  I want a better and more serious one  :D

Which one?
There are some pretty good clones, but they just have an IDC box header connector, and it's up to you to source some reliable test clips to use with them.

I used ScanaLogic for a couple years before buying my Pico Scope.  I think the ScanaLogic was way less than $100.

I don't need the world to know my name, but I want to live a life so all my great-grandchildren proudly remember me.

Hello Mike,
Did you mean this?  It is now called ika Logic.

I has found this Digilent with Microchip IC. US$100 only.

I thought you wanted cheap.  LA's are $10 on eBay.

ebay is expensive.
 
I buy $10 stuff and will be charged US$100 shipping cost.
 
If I buy $50 on Arrow, shipping is free of charge.  In additional, I often get discount from them.

I have a lot of cheap Salea imitations(*) for in the field, for in the office I have somewhat heavier (400gs) hantek (Eur 150 range) apparatus.
 
When buying a logic analyser, pay specific attention to protocol support. People diss Chinese devices all the time, but quite often they come with quite extensive protocol support for free, whereas with the brand versions you often have to buy not trivial protocols (like CANFD) extra.
 
(*) Afaik a 8051 clone with usb and a dedicated sampling component.

You're not helping people who are trying to help you, by not having your location posted.  There are plenty of LA's on eBay that ship from China with no shipping cost.  Your loss if you didn't search long enough to figure that out.

Judging from his avatar and comments in his posts, he might be Hongkongese and anti-China. So buying China stuff is ...

... and that LA cost is
 
HKD157 = US$20.26 = €17.94
 
Edit: A coworker recently bought a digital storage oscilloscope from China for US$8.95.

I agree that the Sallae Logic Analyzer clones are great for the price, although it's a violation of their terms of use.  After trying out their software on a clone, I liked it so well I bought one of their mixed channel units.

Perhaps, they are mostly counterfeits.  LoL: LoL

Take these for examples, they are counterfeits of what brands?

We bought it for fun only, as these are magnitudes below the frequencies we deal with.

In my view more that 80% of the value of the Sallae Logic Analyzer is the application that runs it.
 
There are 22 post capture protocol decoders that are included. If there were a Tektronix,  HP, Agilent, Keysight or any "mainstream" maker of logic analyzers these protocol decoders would be $1000 each. This makes the most expensive Sallae analyzer a bargain.
 
The Chinese clone makers are profiting from ripping off some of the best software available for any logic analyzer.
 
They should be ashamed.

However, there is now the open source "PulseView" software that comes with dozens of built in decoders that can do the same job...

I've found this China gear which should be an original product, and price is good.  This model is supported by PulseView v0.5.  I will get this one.

Digilent's OpenScope MZ is also a good choice.  US$89 from Mouser with free shiping.
