very handy tool, for a very good price – RJ45/RJ11 Network and Telephone Cable Tester Reviews

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

Pros:
very easy to use, i didnt even to read the instructions, just put the battery and connected a cable, switched it on, and it works like a charm.
Cons:
very cheap (other professional tools costs hundreds of dollars, but you ususally dont need all the extra features they offer, only the basic cable connectivity test)
Other:
i routed my entire house with RJ45 cables, and used this tool to check all of them after routing them through the walls and connecting them to the sockets, saved me a lot of time since i was able to pinpoint where i had problems and which wire was not connected.
Bottomline:
a very good and handy tool, for a very good price.
even if you dont need to use it on a daily basis, for this price it is worth to keep in the toolbox just for the time it saves when needed.
