"I hardwired my broadband connection to the other side of the house where the wifi signal was weak. I ran 25 metres of cat6 cable on the outside and was able to test the both end connections with the remote unit. Excellent! (Don't forget to order a 9v battery.)"
"Bought this to test some LAN cables I was installing. It's simple to use and does just what's needed to prove that you have not made an errors or have any damaged cables. Obviously at this level it does not prove the quality of the connection but it's good considering the money it costs"
"Really simple device, compact and great to have to check out any dodgy connections. Does the job very well and comes with a zipped pouch. The pouch is flimsy but a card insert to add protection against damage is a must. Good price too."
"Given the low price of this tester i was very skeptical. However, glad to report that it works really well. It helped me find a couple of cabling faults within minutes. The construction seems fairly cheap so i'm not sure how long it will last, but certainly for intermittent use its well worth a adding to your toolbox."
"The product is clearly built to a price and has a 'cheap' feel to it. My on/off switch was not well aligned and difficult to operate. That said it worked, and worked well. Great for occasional use and good value"
"As other purchasers have found, this tester does not switch off. Simple fix, remove the front cover (4 screws at the back) reveals the switch is square in an elongated round slot. Use a small file and round the switch on one side and hey presto, it switches off - problem solved! Apart from this the tester works very well and identifies incorrect wiring in a jiffy. Fine for DIY network cabling, probably not suitable for every day pro. use as its rather light weight. I was going to return this, however after the fix and use, its worth keeping for the next networking job."
"It works, but the on/off/s switch is totally flimsy and I don't have faith in it's durability. Also the instructions don't mention the use of the S position on the switch. However, it's cheap enough and if it continues to work, then all the better."
