posted by bobele on 09/15/2010 Certified Owner

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

Pros:
- Small
- Cheap
- Finds broken cables
- Finds shorted cables
- with a litle modification works with shilded cables :D
Cons:
- Build quality is not the best
- The 9V batery does not fit!
no other cons at the time.
Other:
Just soldered two leds inside and it works for shield too!!! Must have! Just take your batery apart and it will fit. Buy quality bateries or accus!
Bottomline:
Nice looking 'keychain'. It's a MUST have if you are working with LAN cables (or telephone cables)! With sku.33466 you can probe usb cables too! Just play with it!
