  • Why a big tester when a small one does the same

    posted by kopkaaz on 02/08/2010

    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:more than 1 month

    Pros:

    It does the same job as sku.1261 but is smaller.

    I ordered 20 of sku.1261 but since this small ne is available i ordered 10 of these.

    We use them in a big datacenter to check cables and connectors. If this tool checks the cable and connectors OK, but there are still errors on the circuit I take a FLUKE to re do the test. But I only used the FLUKE 5 out of 5000 times.

    Cons:

    First couple of times the RJ45 connector will be a pain to get out this tester.

    The ON/OFF button is not of good quality.

    When inserting the battery it feels like the whole tester is going to crack.

    OtherThoughts:

    It is cheap, it is small and it works, buy it.

    Bottomline:

    As a network engineer I can tell that this little tester will find 99% of all cable problem, for the remaining 1% I use a 15.000 dollar costing FLUKE.
