For once-in-a-while cable testing, this is a good tester. You can test a small cable by the integrated TX/RX unit. If you split the unit in 2, you can even test longer runs where both ends are not at the same location. I used the split units to identify RJ45 cables I wasn't sure which one was which... very useful for that.
The RJ45 connectors are harder than usual to remove once your cable is stuck in. Build quality is OK, not great. Feels cheap, but i'm not complaining at this price.
I did not test USB or RJ11, for me this was an added bonus.
I have not compared this one with the other cable testers around, but the only gripe I have about it is it's certainly feasible to remove cables from it, but just a little harder than from a router port, for example.
