I use it on my 97 Bonneville and my 2000 Blazer. It has good information, but sometimes its hard to navigate diggin through all the links.

Nothing beats the factory service manual. You didn't tell us what car you have so I can't give you a link to one, but you can get them on Ebay for most cars at a very reasonable price.

I'm not a fan of AllData.

If you're not using a service manual, I'd got Mitchell OnDemand. I've been using it for years and it'* leaps and bounds over AllData.

I used Mitchell OnDemand at auto school. BACK IN 1995! I can only imagine how much further it has come along. But, I agree, MOD is far better with pictures and how-tos vs Alldata. I don't have any experience with Alldata Pro though.

I have a 98 SLE that I'm fixing the AC on and I heard that ALLDATA was pretty good but I'll check out Mitchell on demand.
