Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent value Excellent value little tester. Reliable, quick and easy to use. Makes cat5 fault finding a breeze. Generally a better piece of kit than most other testers I've had. Doesn't like powered up POE circuits though, so be more careful than me. Oops. Just bought another one cos I love it and have missed it this week.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good Product A good product at a fair price, maps cabling for continuity only. This product does not perform the full category compliance test for Cat 5, Cat5e. Cat 6 10G. It only wire maps and does not check length, propagation delay, impedance etc.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great little tester I've had one of these for years, and used it frequently as I extended the network through the house. The ability to split the tester makes testing cables stretching from one room to another a complete doddle.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very easy to use, good value. has both a step mode so you can see which pins are wrong, or an automatic mode. would recommend to anyone who want to make there own cables.

I have tested a cable and pins1-8 light up ok, it identifies the cable as a straight but then the power light flashes red/blue, what does this mean? The cable was working but has stopped which is why I am testing.

Asked by: Paul
This would indicate a short in the cable.

Unit shows straight connection but only led 6&7 light up, what does this mean? Many thanks

Asked by: Dave m
This would mean that there may be a fault in the cable , or the cable has been configured wrong in preparation.
