OK overall but signal is weak for some application – Multi-Purpose Communication Cable/Wire Tester and Tracer (2*6F22 9V) Reviews

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

Pros:
Nice box it comes in. It can do 3 things: 1. The wand detects any high voltage around about up to 3 feet away, awesome for finding power wires in the wall. 2. Generates radio over wires and you can trace it 3. Shows if your Ethernet cable is correctly wired. 2 nine volt batteries are included
Cons:
Radio signal is kind of week. Turning the reception wheel to the max but the wire cannot be traced through the walls. Probably only helpful to find the correct wire ending among other ten.
Other:
Would not say that the price is right.
Bottomline:
I enjoy its ability to detect high current around the house, feels like magic.
