Pros:
If you deal with cat-5 alot this tool is for you. It will show you the length of your wire runs, crossed cables, which side breaks are on and it even plays a tone on the remote end to tell you that your on the right cable.
Cons:
UI is a little awkward No coax adapter or rj11 adapter is included.
Other:
Tbe same device is avalible elsewhere for over $170
Bottomline:
Great tool for the price. It does it's job. It detected where a cable was broken and which pair and showed crossed wires and which. Works well.
