Good for sometimes use. – RJ45/RJ11 Network and Telephone Cable Tester Reviews

posted by un5een on 01/15/2012 Certified Owner

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

Pros:
I had bought this tester as a replacement for another one (more expensive) and I completely satisfied. Pieces can be attached to each other, so I have less chances to lost one from them (as I did with my previous tester). Case has place for small testing cable or additional battery. The best feature for me it's indicators on slave part, because I often test my networks alone. So, with this tester I spent less time to run between server room and user's workplaces.
Cons:
Looks and feels cheap (not a big con, I suppose, especially for this price). Battery bay is too large (can be fixed easily with piece of paper).
Biggest surprise I had have when I tested network plug with Cisco switch on the other side. Tester showed that something exists, and port was shutdowned. Only our cisco admin had could turn on this port again. So, be careful with this device.
Other:
Case could have a loop for attach device on belt.
Bottomline:
Nice device for non-professional use.
