Originally would have given +5 stars. Built like a tank, got much street credits for fixing a band’s Speakon 4p cable during a performance.
HOWEVER, now after 4 years of very polite usage, one of the “Ethernet” jacks has developed a problem. A contact has retreated making all network cables look bad. Hosa does not keep spare parts. If anybody out there can point me in the direction of a repair jack that is identical, it would be greatly appreciated.

Everything works as it should except that the compartment with the battery holds the battery less than 1mm away from the contacts. For me I need to turn the nob to the pin I am testing and then press the battery in to make the contact. When you have 60+ cables and snake channels to test, this time can add up and is an unnecessary step and just complicates the process. To solve this you can bend the plastic that is holding the battery forward a little so it makes constant contact. So far it has saved me 15+ minutes during a live show, which can seem like an eternity while on stage.

Works as advertised. Solid construction. I wish someone would make one of these that can test all combinations of USB connectors though. Still, it works with the most common standard but you will have to test male to male A and micros some other way. Yes you have to turn the knob to check each pin but I actually prefer this as it''s easier to understand what''s happening when something isn''t right.

Works ok. weird glitch when testing 2-conductor 1/4" cables .. both the 1 and 3 connection LEDs light up in the 1 test position. Bought to test speakon NL4 and NL8 connectors, and works great for that but had to replace the NL4 chassis connectors because the originals were made of softer plastic .. definielty NOT genuine Neutrik chassis connectors.

This this in NOT small or compact in any way! Good product, though. Continuity tester with test leads is a great feature.

I am a Audio Engineer and this cable tester works great for me. One concern though, the package says it will test 75 ohm bnc (video) but nothing about 50 ohm which is what RF audio antennas use. I haven''t tried that connector yet. But it''s great. I also like that it has USB A and B ports unlike others with only A ports. For me the only missing ports are 1/8, but that''s easily rectified with the device''s test cables. One other note: the device is a bit large for persons with small hands so if you wish to take it around, get a case.

This tool is fantastic to have around. It works well, but I had to put some tape over the LEDs so they weren''t so blinding. Easy fix. I''ve used this a lot and it''s holding up great. Made of good, solid metal.

Built like a tank. Not only checks continuity of cable, tells you which wires are shorted to which, or open. Came with no instructions, but worth finding online to understand system used. No power switch, plug cable in to activate. I had no problem with the battery door.

Well could have more ports for testing like more video signals for HDMI, Display port These ports would fit on the unit as the unit could have at least 4 more connectors ( lots of room on back side ) Since it is mainly for audio testing can''t really start adding video signal testing but you can still use the Continuity testing if you wanted to track a pin on a video cable if you wished.
