cheaply built but works well – 3-in-1 RJ45 Network / RJ11 and USB Cable Tester Reviews

Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:less than 1 day

Pros:
Works very well. The auto-test/remote-tester combo is a killer-feature! When running in-wall cabling, it's usual to have one end of the cable is in the basement and the other end on the 2nd-floor. With this tester you leave the main unit (in the auto-mode) in the basement and take the remote unit to the 2nd-floor.
Cons:
the construction is very cheap. The jack is very tight. One has to apply force to remove the plug.
Other:
This type of device would cost $50.00 at local home-depot.
Bottomline:
Get the job done while not hurting your wallet.
