Rated 5 out of 5 by from I bought two of this unit a month back and am pleased with my purchase, I just ordered another 10, one for every technician in our company. For tracing un-terminated ethernet cables, there are two crocodile clips, by sending the tone down a twisted pair and going to a bundle of cables to be identified ( at a switch or , you simply locate the correct cable then two tricks to confirm you are on the right one, first if you touch one of the pair and probe the other, it gets louder also, the tone is eliminated completely if you then short the pair under test (i.e no tone will be heard) which confirms you identified the correct pair. Reading the instruction book makes using this device very effective. It's also very lightweight which is great if you have a lot of tools to carry about. The carry case makes sure your tester is protected when not in use.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Worst cable toner. This cable toner made a fool out of me. Could not tone a very short run. I though the cable or jack was damaged because th signal was so weak and begun taking apart the whole rack to Re terminate. Also the continuity light is on when no continuity and off when there is continuity, this is backwards to every other toner. I have used other cheap toners and they worked fine but don't live long.
