Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Ricksxfile A Purchase I needed.
The Klein Scout Pro Tester was needed to test cables on my projects and the unit has done all required testing needed to meet my expectations. Has save valuable time not knowing if a cable is good, shorted or an open or if wired correctly. Other pluses are being able to distinguish which cable I'm testing, and verifying continuity. My concerns: the units durability, if happens to get dropped or banged around in my tool kit. Second concern, (after reading the device manual) if the Scout Pro Tester is connected to a live circuit by mistake, doesn't appear to be a way of protecting itself and may damage the tester.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by privateuser Simple and quick LAN cable testing for a novice...
Purchased to test a CAT6 run that was working but seemed to not be getting optimal speed. I had it a pair crossed, pointed out exactly by the SCOUT PRO. I believe it is over priced for what it is but it is quality product and has the KLEIN name. I would recommend this product as a need to have if doing any LAN cabling work just to avoid any unnecessary headaches. FYI another model(SCOUT PRO LT) measures footage... however the price is more than double just to gain this feature.-marty

Excellent product , Helps identify Voice and Data wiring quickly and for correct wiring . The Tester kit only comes with five wall caps for identification of wiring location, but separate kit can be ordered to expand to nineteen ,( for larger jobs). This product has capability to send a tone siginal on Data , Voice or TV wiring quickly , but needs separate tool ( amplifier) to hear tone . Overall great all-in-one product and nice addition to the tool box ,as a time saver for proper communication wiring .

I used this tool for testing coaxial lines for my tv service. I improvised and used a fitting from another tool that I had by the same manufacturer and worked great. Quick and simple to use.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by FloroidaSmartHomes Great features for the money
I am a A/V integrator and I had done a lot of research on many different Cat5 testers and found this to have the most features for the best price. The first day on the job with the new tester I had an issue with an HDMI Balun over Cat5E This tester allowed me it identify that 2 of the wires had a short somewhere in the wall. The only regret I do have is that I didn't go with the next model up that would give me the wire length.
