Rated 5 out of 5 by 12 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 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 out of 5 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 out of 5 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 out of 5 by Simple and compact For the money this device works great, I needed something that could test the wiring at a clients office. I was in a jam and this helped me prove to the client that the cable was just bad. May 13, 2014
