Suggestions for a MultiTool? Answered

I am trying to find a nice multi tool and looking for suggestions. I am cheap and would prefer ~$40 but cheaper is MUCH better. I like leather man, especially the wave but their are a little expensive(If u know where to get cheap please share). I was looking at the sog power locks and powerassists but they look alittle large and had mixed reviews (mabee later life)

One of these: http://www.dealextreme.com/details.dx/sku.4696

No scissors, but robust, and VERY cheap. I've got one, knife is quite sharp, saw is really good for ripping stuff up. Philips screwdriver seems to fit wide range of sizes.
