    posted by drummertjuhh on 11/12/2013 Certified Owner

    Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:1 day to 1 week

    Great, compact tester for network

    posted by loyal on 10/04/2012 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    works great, low price, compact. Saves tons of time instead of going somewhere to plug your cable in and test for it. If you crimp to make your own cables or are fixing a cable, it does the job
    Cons:
    Battery hardly fit into the bay, but otherwise completely satisfied
