Any Experience With "USB ISP Programmer for ATMEL AVR "

So I ran across this today and would like to know if any of you guys as any experience using something like this instead of programming on board... Thanks, Oh and also if any store like Sparkfun or Mouser sells them

It's more expensive than the original AVR ISP2 ($34 via Mouser). What's the point?

(And ISPs generally permit on-board programming.)

Working on a Microbot and I don't have room for a programmer on my board...

Edit:
I just realized that I'm going to have to build a circuit for microcontroller load because I saw a circuit attatched to the original photo I saw of this.. My bad.. Probably should go to sleep

So what's wrong with using the $34 AVRISP2, or some of the cheaper ($15-$30) clones? You do not install them on board. You can either use them to program the chip before installing it in the socket, or while it's mounted, via a 6-pin connector (if you don't have space for a regular connector, you can use a smaller one and make an adapter).

I'm guessing this one is compatible with AVRISP2, but it's more expensive, so I see no benefit.
