Default 5 Gas analyzer

Just looking for opinions on a 5 gas analyzer any of you guys have one or use one. Thinking about adding one to my shop tools and not sure if they are worth the $.

I used many a gas analyser in the 80's and 90's and early 2000's but none had the 5th gas (NoX). I've often thought that would be "nice". They were very handy for pre-OBDII vehicles.
The vehicles themselves are pretty good gas analysers as long as the vehicle is functioning within design parameters within the ECMs themselves. Even when the vehicle is flagging a code, Mode-$06 can quite often reveal what is really going on with some investigation and accurate service information.
Have you found any that pique your curiosity for price and function-?

I've gotta second Crusty's sentiments. I used to be glad I had one, but I haven't put a 5 gas on a car in over 5 years. I do still use them on carbureted stuff, like the occasional motorcycle or ATV. Last thing I jetted was a Suzuki DRZ. Before that I used one to tune the fuel injection my street bike.
They are a lot cheaper now though. You can buy a 5 gas from Snap-on for less than it cost to replace the O2 and NOx cells on the old one.
