Should I get this or one that plugs into a Windows laptop? I currently have two issues I need to diagnose:

2005 Volvo - I suspect one of the cylinders is misfiring.

2005 Toyota Prius - I suspect there is an issue with the hybrid battery.

I notice the description on Amazon states that for Asian cars it only works with model years 2008+, which I was surprised to read. Does anyone happen to have any experience with this reader and an older Asian car?

If you have a cylinder misfiring, your CEL will be blinking.

Looks like you'll probably get your basic CAN info from this so I'm assuming O2, Fuel Trims, MAF/MAP but probably not anything manufacturer specific. You won't get things like knock sensor or misfire counts. If you're lucky, you might be able to diagnose it with this scanner.

As for the Prius, description in the scanner says it won't work with Hybrid and/or Electric Cars.

This is for reading, clearing, and checking readiness of emissions systems. If you're not seeing a check engine light this probably isn't going to help you. Also, there are many other options on amazon that do the same thing for less money. I'd hit up volvo and prius specific forums, the torque pro app for android coupled with a bluetooth ODB reader may get you a lot more info.

bt + torque pro often gave me false positives. dealer scanned and found nothing wrong. i don't use bt dongles anymore. mine was ~$18 from amazon.

False positives in what regard? Like it was showing you had a code, but no CEL light up on the dash? I have a simple wired reader I've used for years for checking/clearing codes, but am grabbing a BT reader to monitor stuff such as transmission temp while towing.

It all depends on how old of an asian car we're talking about.

i don't remember exactly. no cel. there were several things out of range. i thought maybe torque or dongle not calibrated properly for the manufacturer and just gives generic numbers. not sure.

now i have a problem car shakes slightly at 27-29mph under/at ~2000rpm. no cel. would like something more expensive for diagnostics. not sure if can trust dealers.

Wrong. Check engine light only blinks if the misfire is bad enough to cause harm to the catalytic converter. If it's a slight misfire it won't blink.

Engine shake? Is it a vacuum leak? Is with off throttle or just pressing down throttle initially? Might be the idle air valve?
