Well for the price it is great. Would never expect I could get a punch down tool for this price. If you just need something to get the job done then this should work. Because it is made out of mostly plastic it is very light in weight.
The tool seems cheaply made and might not stand up to long term use. The cutting mechanism is like a scissors as opposed to a blade that cuts the wire on impact. Because of this the wire is not cut as close. Also this tool does not have an interchangeable blade and is set to always cut.
You really can't beat it for the price. I don't know how Dealextreme can even offer it at such a low price. If you will be using it for more than a few uses you may want to consider spending a few more dollars for a better tool. SKU 6386 is a tool most will be used to and is only a few dollars more. The spring on 6386 strong though so it makes a little while to break it in.
