  • Small, working, bad housing quality

    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:1 day to 1 week

    Pros:

    - Works

    - Small!

    - Tests RJ45 (UTP Ethernet) and RJ11 (Telephone) cables

    Cons:

    - The GND LED is missing! (and paths on PCB are missing, so if you want to test STP's shield, you'll have to mess up with it for a while)

    - Build quality is not very good and the detachable terminal part tends to fall apart sometimes

    - I had to open the casing to align battery wire properly

    - Battery connector is weak, so it bends when you try to remove it from battery

    OtherThoughts:

    - It's probably possible to add missing 9th LED for testing GND of STP cables.

    - I've didn't managed to open case of terminal part without cracking it, but

    Bottomline:

    Buy it if you need some aid with building small network and you are able to fix little issues.

    If you are going to use this every day for some big work, you should probably invest into something more durable.
