Great tool, but... – RJ45/RJ11 Network and Telephone Cable Tester Keychain Reviews

Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:1 day to 1 week

Pros:
Easy to use. Compact. ON/OFF switch below surface avoids unintentional battery drain. Flashing 'POWER ON LED' in the 'master unit'
Cons:
One of the LEDs needed resoldering before being operational. Another of the LEDs was severely misaligned inside the housing. Plastic housing alignment very poor. Plastic housing very weak - needed repair and reinforcemnets prior to use.
Other:
The tester is too big for being a 'key-chain' - it is comparable to a 'box of cigarettes'.
Bottomline:
After resoldering and securing the cabinet, the tester is perfect and quick for novice users !
