I fully agree:
I own a HI-LO (the company name producing the EPP and ALL family) EPP-01A
eprom programmer since three years, and never had problems.
NMOS/CMOS EPROM : from 2716 to 27512 and 1 Mbit
          EEPROM: 2816, 2816A, 2817A, 2864A, 28256A
Page Mode EPROM : 27513,27011

Quick program time: 20 secs for a 27256
Easy to install
Easy to use software
Its price here in Italy was abt. 160 UKP (incl. VAT)
But if price doesn't matter and you're looking for performances, take a look
at this jewel
