Works great – 8-in-1 RJ45/1394/USB/Firewire Computer Network Cable Tester Reviews

Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:more than 1 month

Pros:
Works great. I tested some network cables, haven't tried others yet. The LEDs light up one wire at a time (2 LEDs, one at each end), so you can easily tell which wire is the defective one.
Cons:
A little chunky, about the size of a paperback novel - a little longer, but also narrower and thinner, so...
Other:
I want to use my tools more, but I have no more wire to test and run. Home and work are both all wired up.
Bottomline:
Get it. Now. Avoid SKU 24076. It looks convenient, but it doesn't work, and is hence a waste of time.
