Yes. Reading the flashes works fine.

Yes, and a lot more. It reads/writes GALs, some microcontrollers, etc
Conitec has pretty good service. When you find a device that is not
supported, they will support it in one of the next releases

The IV is a little bit slower than the V, but it is a very nice device.
