3 out of 5 eggsFinds the cables that the other toners couldn't

Pros: All my other tone/probe kits were cheap off-brand stuff, from an $10 one from China, to a $99 one from the local electronics store. They all sucked, and they could barely detect a wire >100 ft long.

This thing is WAY BETTER. The digital mode on the Fluke Intellitone is a LIFESAVER. You can use this probe to tone "live" wires that are already connected to network equipment. The "digital" toning mode is VERY sensitive, I can find wires from upwards of two feet away from them. Just wave the probe over your big bundle of wires and it will tell you if it is in there somewhere. You actually CAN use this thing to trace and discover wires behind the walls.

Digital mode is what makes the Intellitone worth the extra money.

The analog mode is also quite sensitive, too. Much better than the other tone/probe kits I had. It just transmits a "stronger" tone down the line. It's also a really nice touch that "shorting" the two pairs you are toning together causes the tone style to change - it lets you verify with 100% certainty you really did find the right wire pair. I can even use the probes from my old kits, and they detect the signal from the Fluke tone generator too.

For toning - which is really what you're buying this thing for - it beats all the other toners on the market HANDS DOWN.

Cons: Everything except for toning out wires sucks on this device.

The plastic housing feels cheap, light, and junky. It doesn't "feel" expensive. It doesn't look like it would survive a fall off of a ladder, either. Mine didn't come with a carrying case, either. Not even a little cloth bag.

The wiremap test is awful. Sure it's nice that you can actually do a wiremap test directly on your tone probe - but their execution was flawed. On mine, the port you plug the wire in on the base unit is a bit finicky, and it erroneously tells me that wires are open about 50% of the time. I have to REALLY firmly push the wire in, then set it carefully down without letting the wire pull out at all, then run over to the other side to check if the wiremap is successful. It does this for ALL cables, even factory-made CAT6 patch cables. It's not bad enough to RMA it.... but about 50% of the time I can't really trust a "bad" reading. Is it ACTUALLY bad? Or was the cable just not quite pushed in firmly enough? Annoying.

The "wire map" test on this unit is this painfully slow. It does this iterative "dink, dink, dink" sound as it illuminates one of 8 LEDs on the probe for each of the 8 wires it is testing, sounding a "dink" tone if it's good, and a "blehh" tone if it's not. This takes forever to test a wire. For $280, why can't it just test all 8 of the wires, and show me the results? Why cant the LEDs on the probe be green/red, and just light up green if it's good, and red if it's bad?

Also the rest of the unit - the symbols on the dial, the LEDs, etc. are all quite cryptic. You really have to read the instruction manual cover to cover to know what the lights, sounds, and tones actually MEAN. It's not at all intuitive.

Female F-type port for coaxial cables.... what am I supposed to do with that? Screw the unit directly into the plug sticking out of the wall? I ended up screwing a coupler onto it.

For such an expensive device I expected more.
