Great stuff for the price – RJ45/RJ11 Network and Telephone Cable Tester Reviews

Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:more than 1 month

Pros:
Cheap, better and longer lasting than similar instruments I also had/used. Good for testing connectivity. Ground line is also tested. Have it for a year now, more than a thousand of cables tested. I didn't really test USB much.
Cons:
Battery compartment too big for the battery - I glued a bit of sponge inside so it does not rattle. After much use, sometimes you have to press cable in to test it.
Other:
Not everybody needs a Fluke ;)
Bottomline:
If you need cheap cable tester, go for this. If you need pro stuff, than don't :)
