    It works just as advertised on all the cables I checked.
    THEODORE -- napa, CA   8/20/2010
    A very easy to use product that worked right out of the package. I have used it to check several Cat 5 cables (and found one bad one.) It needs an addition to the instructions about checking crossover cables, i.e., what the sequence of wires should be. It's now a valued part of my electronic toolbox.

    Works well for testing your cable installations and it makes your installations go much faster.
