I use the M2L Electronics EZ-EP programmer, which is extremely simple and low cost. I also prefer the BP Microsystems BP-1200 or Needham's EMP-30, but those are a little more expensive and probably overkill if you are just doing 2600/5200 homebrewing..

with them.  I need this primarily for 2600-related work, but would also like

If you want to save your money, you should look for an old programmer from the mid-80s. I have found an EW-704 (from Sunshine Electronics, a company that went out of business some years ago) for about 15 Euro. It burns many kinds of eproms from 2716 to 1Mbit eproms. You might need an old PC too, because it is based on ISA-bus.
