Quite decent device – 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:
Cheap, lightweight and easy to use while still preforming to standard.
Cons:
Feels a little fragile and I doubt if it'll take abuse the professional devices go through.
Came with Chinese-only manual.
Other:
Had it for a few days now and ran some testings, I've worked with similar (Professional, and much more expensive) devices before and while they felt more heavy-duty and robust, this device appear to accomplish it's task well for SOHO use. Keep in mind it is not designed to trace wires through brick walls in the first place, though it will probably work with drywall.
The device arrived with a Chinese-only user manual, but the entire thing is quite self-explanatory so if you're of technical orientation you'll figure it out in a couple of minutes by yourself.
Bottomline:
Would recommend this for the hobbyist\ occasional user.
