Great investment in an excellent tool!
I bought this tester for a project at my house where I installed Ethernet wiring throughout the house. I used it to test my final connections between two points. Being my first time terminating Ethernet, I thought it wise to invest in this tool to verify my work was done properly. I'm glad I did! It helped me confirm that I had everything pinned out correctly and displayed a message of "pass" on the screen when evrything was correct. Helped me quickly identify if I had a problem somewhere, which I did a time or two. Well worth the $50! As other reviewers said, it works quickly too. Seems well built and durable too. I plan to make patch cables next, and plan to use it to verify that they will work. I opted for his model, versus the more expensive Klein models, since I only needed to use it on Ethernet wiring. My only tip for use is that you need a spare patch cable (not included) if you need to test a female connection, so that you can connect the remote or the tester to it. I highly recommend this product to anyone who wants to test their wiring installations, or to test existing wiring.

      Needed this to check the right wiring for the cable on my boat radar. Worked perfectly. Rugged design and more importantly it told me which wires went to each connector.
