Rated 5.0 out of 5 by 14 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great little tester! Used this when re-wiring office - very handy, portable, and always accurate. I recommend this tester for small offices and home use! December 9, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Simple reliable product This is a simple device to use. You wouldn't need to know anything about networking or the like to use it. February 3, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Found my stupid mistake in less than a minute I've made a number of ethernet cables without a tester before, but after two failed attempts to make a 100 footer, I broke down and bought this tool to figure out what was wrong. Within seconds, it told me what the problem was: I had wired one end of the cable exactly backwards, making it a crossover cable instead of a straight cable. I must be getting old and senile, but now that I have this tool, I can continue pretending that I know what I'm doing for a few more years. I realize that there are cheaper testers out there, but I don't think they would have diagnosed this particular problem so exactly. The display shows exactly how the two cable ends are connected, which is bound to be a huge time-saver in the future. June 26, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Should have bought this a long time ago This was exactly what i wanted. Good quality and simple. This found my network problem in about 5 minutes. I had been pulling my hair out for a week. There a cheaper ones on the internet but this one feels like it will last. It was simple, i didn't even have to read the instructions. It will be a new permanent addition to my networking tool bag. March 13, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by I don't know why i didn't have one of these sooner. No more wondering if i made my cable right. This is a no brainer. If you make ethernet cables, and need to know if it's right BEFORE it's installed. This is a cheep simple way to make sure it's right ahead of time. And very easy to check cables allready installed also. October 7, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Handy tool for occasional electrician I do IT management as a second duty in small company. This tool is very useful in troubleshooting in-wall wiring as well as patch cable. More comprehesive analysis than $9 simple RG45 continutity tester. I literally threw away the $9 tester. October 11, 2011
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by great tool helps alot makes it easy to diagnose issues and speeds up repairs September 30, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Awesome tester in a small package I bought this tester to use at work because the tester we had was hard to read and took a long time to show results. This tester is awesome! It is super-fast (old tester took about 20 - 30 seconds for results; this tester... 2 - 3 seconds). It is very simple to read (shows results as 1 - 8 instead of symbols that I had to translate on the old one) - if it is good it shows 'pass'. It will also show whether you have a crossed wire, a short, open, split, etc. It will even test cross-over cables (which I wasn't able to test on even more expensive FLUKE testers). It may not be the cheapest (least expensive) tester out there, but you get what you pay for... and in this case, you get more then you pay for. December 19, 2013
