Rated 2.0 out of 5 by 4 reviewers.
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Replacement Battery The replacement battery is expensive. The cost is about $4.50/battery and you need about 8 or 9 and hard to find. The unit looks like disposable since it would cost you more to replace the battery compared to buying a new on. Performance is that not great and you could hardly trace cable that is connected live on a network switch. :) July 31, 2011
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Weak signal The signal emitted from the tone generator is so weak. I can hardly hear the beeping sound when the wires are lying behind drywalls. In other words, this item is useless. Plus, it has only a rj-11 jack, while most cables in my house are hooked with rj-45 jacks. I would recommend you find one with stronger signal. August 29, 2010
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Would not recommend Got this as a gift. Low quality unit, with a weak signal. No use to me. May 14, 2014
