J-Link V8 ARM USB-JTAG Emulator Adapter

programming algorithms for most MCUs, and Segger is very pro-active about updating their drivers to support the newest chipsets.

It just works, and keeps on working, and it'll be there for you in several years time.
The J-Link is fast. Stepping through breakpoints and reading memory addresses is quick, as is programming the flash memory on the chips. It's real strength, though, is that it's so vendor and tool neutral. Most chip vendors today provde low cost (or free) tools, but they also lock you into their chips and force you to accept the choice they've made for you. Segger's J-Link is a nice change in that respect, since you can be reasonably certain it will work with any chip, in any major toolchain, and you're free to change camp (or OS or IDE) without having to buy a new debugger every time.
 
 
 
Why Would I Want This?
 
You can do a lot of basic debugging with just printf and an LED, and you may not need a HW debugger to get started, but once you start to working on more complicated projects, you hit a debugging wall pretty quickly.
Your chip might be ending up in the HardFault handler, for example, but without a debugger it can be very hard to trace back exactly what is causing the problems. A debugger allows you to set 'breakpoints' in your code, where execution will temporarily stop, and you can check the value of memory or peripherals at that point in time, and then 'single-step' through your code line by line, executing your program until you find the place that causes your fault. There's a lot more to debugging than simple breakpoints, but you can often solve in a few minutes with breakpoints what would take much longer with printf and instrusive blocking mechanisms you insert into your code without a debugger.
Whether you're using GDB Server (GNU Tools) or an IDE and a commercial toolchain, it's also just a big convenience, since the J-Link can program the flash for you at the click of a button, reset the device, start execution, and then 'halt' on main(). You can do all these steps yourself -- programming the device via free tools over UART or via a USB bootloader, etc. -- but when you need to do that 40-50 times a day, it can get old quick, and 15 seconds saved make a huge difference when debugging. You can program a small MCU and break on main in 2-3 seconds with a J-Link, which makes the tools more or less invisible, which is a good thing when you have other problems to worry about.
