Multi-Function F-Type, RJ-12, and RJ-45 Cable Tester

Cable testing cannot get any easier than with the Monoprice EZchecker 008 Cable Tester.

This tester is a quick and easy continuity checker for RJ45 (STP and UTP), RJ11/12, and F-type and BNC Coax cables. It tests each conductor on RJ cables and instantly provides a pass or fail result, with an indication of which conductor is faulty in the event of a failure.

The tester consists of two pieces: the Master unit and the Remote Terminator, which can be detached from the Master unit by sliding it off to the right. There is no on/off switch or test button, simply connect the wires and get your result. Nothing could be easier!

WARNING!!! Do not test live circuits as it could cause damage to the tester unit or personal injury.

Note: This product has a universal card packaging that is used for PIDs 8129, 8130, and 8131, with the individual model marked on the back. The front of the packaging includes functionality tags for all three testers combined. Therefore, the packaging erroneously indicates that this tester is capable of HDMI cable testing, which it is not designed to do. For HDMI cable testing, please usePID 8131.

Also note that the back of the card indicates that this unit can test USB cables. While it is electrically capable of doing so, the necessary adapters are not included with the tester.

Pros: Simple to use if you are testing a lot cables for faults, 8 hours/day, 5 days/week

Cons: Too expensive for it's one-task use.

For the occasional use, I'd suggest you spend a few more dollars and buy a multi-purpose (MP) meter. Then merely short one end of the cable and use the Ohm scale of the MP meter to check for continuity, and you will find many other uses for the MP meter!

Thank you for your review and my apologies for the issues you have experienced with PID 8129. Unfortunately, it sounds like you may have received a defective product.
Now if you'd like, I can help setup an RMA for a replacement. If you would like me to proceed with the RMA, all I would need is the order # this cable tester is under. Sorry again for the trouble and thanks in advance!
