Why a big tester when a small one does the same – RJ45/RJ11 Network and Telephone Cable Tester Keychain Reviews

It does the same job as sku.1261 but is smaller.
I ordered 20 of sku.1261 but since this small ne is available i ordered 10 of these.
We use them in a big datacenter to check cables and connectors. If this tool checks the cable and connectors OK, but there are still errors on the circuit I take a FLUKE to re do the test. But I only used the FLUKE 5 out of 5000 times.
First couple of times the RJ45 connector will be a pain to get out this tester.
The ON/OFF button is not of good quality.
When inserting the battery it feels like the whole tester is going to crack.
It is cheap, it is small and it works, buy it.
As a network engineer I can tell that this little tester will find 99% of all cable problem, for the remaining 1% I use a 15.000 dollar costing FLUKE.
