Have you tried the Autozone trick? Some may still have these, and they should all be on clearance. I paid 120 for mine including the cartridge. It was 1/2 off.

145 isn't half bad. If you can't get that one on ebay, get it direct from actron if it comes with the cartridge and cable for that price. You won't regret it.
