5 out of 5 eggsJust fine.

Pros: Works just fine. Bright display, no problems. Surprisingly, I put a rechargeable battery in this a half year ago and it still works!

Cons: None

5 out of 5 eggsGood cable tester

Pros: Gets the job done with accurate readings. Requires a 9 volt battery which is not included. Comes with a zippered storage pouch.

Cons: none to report

Other Thoughts: Since I am new to this networking cable crimping thing, I recommend this tester for the price if you are on a budget. This also makes a great starter kit too

1 out of 5 eggsBroken within a day, horrible product

Pros: Worked as advertised for about 4 hours.

Cons: by the second day the device wouldn't turn on. tried multiple batteries. from the beginning, I had to pull the battery out to power off the device as the switch wouldn't turn it off. horrible item, I guess you get what you pay for.

4 out of 5 eggsWorks Great

Pros: Easy to use and read, slow and fast setting for testing pairs, can test grounded cable too, "leather" case to put it in helps protect it from getting knocked by other tools and potentially causing some cosmetic damage.

Cons: Raised power switch, Plastic may be a little sub par.

Other Thoughts: I bought this because I regularly find myself crimping cable and running lines. This works great to test your work as well as aid's in ruling out faulty cabling. The con I mentioned about the raised power switch may not be an issue to you but for me it is. I carry it in a plain ole tool bag, If I leave the battery in; it will switch on in my tool bag and run the battery dead. To resolve this issue, I just disconnect the battery when I'm not using it and the problem is solved. I also have to do this with my multimeter.

1 out of 5 eggsTerrible and cheap!

Pros: Cheap - thats about it!

Cons: Drains batteries, hard to test with. Cheap construction.

Other Thoughts: We ordered five of these all had the same issues. Power switch on most of them does not actually turn off and the batteries are drained when you go to use it. Obviously, not auto-off feature. Testing is VERY basic and there is no error indicator - it just blinks the lights. So if you have a miswire (a cross) it is hard to spot because LEDs still blink and in a row of 16 its hard to see one that is reversed. We got what we paid for and now they are in a landfill...

5 out of 5 eggsyou can't buy the kind of loyalty i have to newegg

Pros: newegg sent me another one to replace the bad one

newegg really has the best customer service of any company i've ever dealt with

Cons: none

Other Thoughts: i just started the rma process on this thing to see if it was still under warranty and they sent me an email saying a replacement was on it's way.

i can buy with confidence that if i ever have a problem, it will be resolved.

you can't buy the kind of loyalty i have to newegg

2 out of 5 eggsTester

Pros: It comes with a case .

Cons: This tester does not work like it is supposed to. What's even worse is this is the second tester. The first one would turn on but not shut off. Save your money and buy better.
