PROS: nice kit every thing you need for basic data installation tools
PROS: This kits contains the tools to perform networking, phone wiring, and even work with coax. This kit has good components that added up to much more than what I paid for it and it is in a nice case that makes it easy to carry.
CONS: Smaller pieces can easily fall out when case is opened.
I have always had trouble with those cutters and I know many seasoned IT people who say the same. It is crucial that the individual strands do not get cut, so do yourself a favor and don't rely on a tool like that. Do it with manual precision and ensure that things are done right. This is not a job that is worth cutting corners on.
PROS: After I received this kit I immediately quit wondering whether I would regret paying the price I did. Well, these tools are much better than the cheapies my friends have bought. They are sturdy and do their job. The cable testers work, which is more than I can ask for.
CONS: Not the most comfortable to hold, but that is a small gripe.
PROS: the hand tools are all well-made, extremely durable and function with precision
CONS: the cable tester does nothing but take up room in the case
