Using MaxiSys Pro MS908P for 6 months, it can do what I paid, it works fine in my workshop, comes with everything when I first bought it, use it for scanning of ABS, airbag, engine, and anything the car can communicate with, such as.
AutoVIN Technology, MaxiFix Cloud-Based Information System, Shop Manager, ECU Coding and ECU Flash Programming (only MS908P works, because it includes a J2534 hardware)
Two year ago, the brand new MS908P between 3200-3800, but now its price drop less than $2300 supplied by Autel authorized dealer in China.
This was bought direct from www.cnautotool.com (who can provide me a certificate)

Quick processor speed and boot-up time:

It doesn’t seem to make a difference what model of car I hook it up to

The MaxiSYS (MS908) is the fastest (scan) tool I’ve ever used.”

It saves us time on every job we use it on with its quick boot-up time, ability to look at live data and ability to use bi-directional controls while not being bound by a cord.

Easy to use be’coz of the manual included:

The Autel Scanner MS908 system comes with the manual, which was loaded onto a CD. So it’s easy to use, there is little need for the manual.

It also included 12V and 120V chargers, a USB cable, non-OBD adapters, a strap/handle and a screen cleaning cloth.
According to both reviewers, the MS908 is easy to use. Even right out of the box, minimal setup was involved.

MS908 system good at update:

Once the scan tool arrived in the shop, the only i need to do is to register the device on Autel’s website in order to perform updates. If you choose to not update it, you can use it out of the box within five minutes.

Autel is really good about updating their tools. It’s a tool to check for updates like once a week, because as soon as Autel comes up with solutions, they put them on the internet for our users.It is kind of cumbersome to pick and choose the updates through the tool, without having to hook it up to a computer, as the tool is fully Wi-Fi capable. It would be nice to set a profile of vehicles that you work on, or a sort by vehicles that you need…available updates on all vehicle makes and models, including European vehicles not serviced in the U.S.

I’ve updated mine on the road. It saves me a ton of time.

Advanced & function-able:

This MS908 offers 100-percent access on the anti-theft security systems, it allows me to send reports via Wi-Fi to another computer, it comes pre-loaded with direct links to repair info (AllData, Identifix, Mitchell 1, iATN, etc.) and that it stores vehicle histories and complete customer history, which can be retrieved through VIN auto-identification.

And I have used the tool for many advanced functions, which include performing diagnostics and resets on many vehicle makes and models and even programming keys. Have used a lot of OE scan tools before. Autel lays out data the same way OE scan tools are laid out. I am familiar with this setup logic, that if technicians are not familiar with a factory menu layout, this may be difficult for some users.
Perfect in auto key programming/module coding:

I used Autel MS908 to program keys on several vehicle makes including Ford, Dodge, Nissan and VW. And also used it to diagnose a faulty PCM in a 2010 Dodge Ram and faulty headlight modules on 11 5 Series BMWs. After replacing the new module, it had to be coded and he also had to run reference for the adaptive headlights. The MaxiSYS performed flawlessly.

In conclusion:
Autel Maxisys Pro MS908P is a best universal full-system diagnostic tool for car repair work, it
wins Autel MS908,  Autel Mini,  Autel DS808 and Autel DS708.
Built in with advanced technical parameters, it has a most full functions on a wide vehicle coverage
