The GFCI tester seems to work fine. Works also for testing non-GFCI circuits. Legend to interprete meaning of lights is on the device. Seems reasonably durable.

DEAR CE Product Expert-Ye
You are confused. The model CE-HGT6120 has a green light in the middle. That is the ALL ok light.
I just purchased this tester (March 2016) as a replacement for a good one that was removed from my tool bag.
My tester, and as it seams many others light up the "BAD GROUND" Red light after performing a good test. I do not even want to tell you the trouble this defect has caused me. Many hours and $$$ I will never get back.
SO DO NOT PURCHASE this tester until they fix it. The tester will test the GFCI correctly but then every ground will show BAD.
This was tested on 3 separate, ALL wired correctly homes- with the same results- bad ground.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by 6tessa9 Easy to use and does what it needs to
This simple little device helped me determine which GFCI-protected outlets I needed to rewire/replace without having to call in an electrician. Probably saved me quite a bit of money - and replacing the defective GFCI outlet I had probably saved my son's life since the new one tripped correctly when he accidentally stuck his computer plug in while touching one of the contacts!

This is a small tool every home owner , electrician or DIY should have.
The Commercial Electric GFCI Receptacle Tester. is not only GFCI tester but also is designed to detect the most common wiring problems in standard receptacles. The tester can detect conditions such as correct wiring , open ground, reverse polarity, open hot, open neutral and hot/ground reversed etc.
I had this from my local Home Depot, and it never failed, and it is a very useful product.

Unfortunately this tester proved to be defective. Like others, I too was shown "bad ground" on every outlet in my house (three levels). After returning the item, I went with a competitor product that functions, though not as "cool" looking (especially in terms of the light colors). Buyer beware until the product is either updated or pulled.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by JWC Product may be ok, but company doesn't exist
I had the same bad ground problem as others who posted here. That was my first clue that it might be a product problem. However, I wanted to know what triggers the "bad ground" reading so I searched in vain for any company information, tech support, online documentation to explain how the device works. Zip, zero, nada. I finally searched the model number and found the exact same product listed on Amazon being made by Sperry Instruments. The documentation there states that it has a 10 ohm ceiling for ground resistance. I will check it in some other houses and compare the results.
I have to assume that CE is just a made up brand for Home Depot that is manufactured by Sperry. When I called the tech support line, it was answered as Gardner-Bender. I guess there has been some industry consolidation. I don't like buying technical products from an unknown manufacturer and I won't do it again. I will resort to alternate testing to try and confirm the ground resistance result from this device, as this was a new sub panel with a new 5/8 copper clad ground rod. I need to see if there is a problem with the ground rod or a badly calibrated outlet tester.

I purchased this Item (GFCI Tester) model MS102H to find out if I had a bad outlet. It worked find, lights indication was functioning, etc. I replaced the GFCI with a new one, tested it again and all is working and signaling just fine. Also just a DYI'er....
