5 out of 5 eggsExcellent device

Pros: I was looking for a smaller tester than my sharkbyte that could test phone and network cabling. This fits the bill perfectly. The manual testing mode option is handy although I'd just redo the cabling ends if that was necessary. For the cost it's a well designed product and includes all cables/adaptors to test phone cat5/6 and coax based wiring. The LEDs are bright red and easy to see on the main and remote device. I found no speed selector option but it's suitable at the rate it cycles. You aren't going to miss anything and you won't have time to brew a cup of coffee. A good tool for any tech or person who's running wire and terminating it out. Did I mention that its small and fits easily with a small toolbox? :) Don't forget a good crimper some cable and decent ends. Don't go cheap on those items.

Cons: None.

5 out of 5 eggsA steal of a deal.

Pros: Does exactly what it's supposed to do, and for a great price. Comes with a nice little carrying case too that I didn't expect.

Cons: None I can see so far. Probably should have come with an 8P RJ45 patch cable to match the 6P RJ11 it did come with... but not really a con.

Other Thoughts: Comes with a base and a remote unit, an RJ11 patch cable, 2 RJ45 (male) x BNC (female) adapters for coax testing, a Male x Male BNC adapter, and a nice little leatherette carying case to hold it all together.

Very good little tool for the price... this is the most important tool in your network troubleshooting kit. A vast majority of major network issues are caused by pinout problems, and simple tools like this will save you countless headaches down the road. All this thing does is check for proper continuity... it's not very fancy, and you shouldn't overpay for something like this. Other big name brands out there will charge you much more for something that does literally the same exact thing this one does, so I recommend not overpaying or overthinking... this thing is cheap and effective. If you do any networking work, you NEED to own one of these, even if it's not this brand... buy one!

5 out of 5 eggsSuper Useful!

Pros: This made hooking up Cat5e to my patch panel a breeze. With this, I was able to figure out which port on the patch panel was going to each wall jack in the house. Also great for testing cables.

Cons: The case that comes with it is garbage and the plastic on the product does a feel a little inferior on build quality. It still gets max eggs because that really doesn't matter. Do you really care about cosmetics on a cable tester when it works? Nope.

Other Thoughts: Does the job beautifully!

5 out of 5 eggsMust have for networking installs

Pros: Effective and priced well for someone doing personal networking.
Once you learn what the lights mean it's very user friendly. Good interface.

Cons: A little annoying having to run from end to end to get results but hey for the price it's fair.

Other Thoughts: read up on what the light patterns mean so you won't be confused.

5 out of 5 eggsWorth The Money

Pros: Worked exactly as it was intended. Leather case was nice, and I received all the attachments for testing.

Cons: None, very pleased with it.

Other Thoughts: If you can't afford a high dollar tester, this is the next best thing for checking continuity.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Value!

Pros: * Very easy to use
* Nice manual mode
* Price

Cons: * Feels delicate
* Case is awful

Other Thoughts: Great little tester that's easy to keep handy and easy to use and read. The case it comes with is awful, but that's easy to overlook for the great value.
