Which is better?

KT200 does not require activation, install software and ready to use. pcmtuner does require activation. 

KT200 is based on Geniune fgtech. Fgtech is the best for old cars, for newer you must doing in bench ot boot, no OBD. No OBD for sid208, no OBD for BMW Fxx, no OBD for new Nissan/Renault SID309/310 edc17c84.

They updated bench for edc17 and bench for MD2 in the last 3 years. KT200 is quite the same, also the software as fgtech. Buy they released a lot of new ECUs and this tool can read and write a lot of TCUs.   KT200 is galletto but with more new protocols and with the possibility of reading TCUs. on TCU they have much more than kess v2/dimsport. 

But in one tool you have OBD, BDM, Jtag, Boot and Bench mode. but for bdm you must use their adapter. It has edc16/med9/edc7  bench mode,  and work very well.

Pcmtuner is based on pcmflash software, it works pretty good on bench mode, boot and OBD. It has tuner account, free VR files and damaos for users.  

KT200 has more ECUs and TCUs supported, more protocols inside and has Jtag and BDM. But it don’t have tuner account, tuning service and wiring diagrams. 

KT200 can do much more TCUs than pcm, i.e volvo mps6, vag dq400e/sq100, jeep 9h28 TCUs.

KT200 has 10 optional language, free to change language in software. pcmtuner flash supports English and Russian only.
