I had been using the original PICStart + for about 2 years without any problem before I moved to ICD 2.
The major problem with PS+ is that it doesn't support ICSP. If you need ICSP you should go for ICD 2.

The picstart plus works exactly as it is intended to do. It can be used with new microcontrollers from microchip by upgrading the firmware with the MPLAB software.
