Cheap but useful tester – 3-in-1 RJ45 Network / RJ11 and USB Cable Tester Reviews

Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:1 day to 1 week

Pros:
Cheap, works, tests a variety of cables.
Cons:
Build quality is pretty cheap feeling. If you don't know how a cable is supposed to be wired it's probably not much use to you.
Other:
Very useful for the price and the range of cables it can test is very good. If you make your own cables and want something to test them nice and cheap this will do the job fine.
Bottomline:
Pretty cheap build quality but then again the price is cheap. I wouldn't treat it too roughly as it feels as though it would break fairly easy. I tested it with a few different cables and it worked fine but getting the RJ11/45 cables back out can be a bit tricky. Still worth buying though, works a treat.
