"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 does the job I needed it to do, but only just.
The unit I received had one of the labels on upside down, hiding all the LED's. forcing me to decide, did I want to return it, or did I want to peel it off and hot glue it back in the right position? I opted for the latter as it was the only one they had in stock.
I opened it, and as a previous reviewer said, the connections and soldering is very poor quality. Like he did, I fixed that up. Once done, it works. But has absolutely no frills.
One thing to note, the copytext of the product on the website says "Push button control", its not a push button, its a sliding "On/Off" switch."
"I was really surprised to discover the printed user guide that came with the unit had a major printing error. It quotes T568B is as follows - WG, G, WO, B, WB, O, WB, B. In actual fact this is T568A!!!! Good luck if you follow this guide."
