Default best obd 1.5 scanner?

I have a 94 se with the dreaded obd 1.5. The only scanner I have heard of this far that will work is the actron cp9145. Does anyone know much about this model or others that will work? I would like to be able to do at least some live diagnostics and use it on obd ii vehicles.

It does perform live diagnostics but not on odbII.

Is the cp 9185 worth the extra money? Actron confirmed it would work

I haven't used it but I love the Cp9145. The reviews on Amazon have helped me a lot in making purchasing decisions both pro and con.
