    Quick RJ-45 Network Cable Tester

    When a LAN connection fails, you can swap out the cable to see if it is the problem or you can reach for the Monoprice LAN Quicker 009!

    This cable tester is designed to troubleshoot RJ45 LAN cables, both UTP and STP. It not only tells you if the cable passes or fails the test, it indicates which pins fail and whether they are open, shorted, or crossed. This allows you to easily see if the cable is your problem and what you need to do to fix it, if it is.

    The tester has two basic testing modes: Auto and Step.

    In auto mode it makes a single pass over the cable and gives a result. It shows whether the cable passed or failed and, if it failed, the type of failure (open, short, or cross) and the affected pins/wires.

    In step mode the tester steps through each wire independently with each press of the Test button. This allows you to get detailed results for a cable that may have multiple types of failures. For example, you can see that pin 1 is open, pins 2 and 3 are crossed, and that pin 4 is shorted.

    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 testing HDMI, Coax, and RJ12 cables, which it is not designed to do. For HDMI cable testing, please use PID 8131. For Coax and RJ11/12 testing, use PID 8129.

    Also note that the manual for this tester shows test results for RJ12, Coax, and USB cables. While it is electrically capable testing these types of cables, the necessary connectors or adapters are not included with the tester.

    This tester works well and helped me to find a few incorrectly terminated (cross and open) wires during a recent cat 5 office install. I would like some more features like total run/wire length and speed tests, but I wasn't willing to spend the big bucks to do so. For the price, I don't think unit can be beat. Other low cost options I looked at seemed flimsy, and this had more features.

    First unit was DOA, monoprice quickly replaced by cross-shipping and provided a free RMA shipping label.

    You definitely can't fault this thing for anything. It's a quick and good rj45 cable tester! I sort of wish I had bought the version that also tests f-type coax/bnc/and rj11 cables. I found out that if your running Ethernet you almost always come across some coax that needs testing :) or maye a phone line or 2...
    But for what it is and does it does very well.
    Dirt cheap too. Love monoprice.

    PROS: Quick
    Does exactly what it says
    Comes with a 9v

    CONS: None really as long as all you need it for is rj45 cables

    Very cost effective
    I needed a tester to set up my home network. This one works great. My only complaint is the brightness of the LEDs. They are so bright you can't read the labels next to them until they go out. A minor issue, but that's what brings the rating down a notch.

    PROS: Easy to use

    CONS: LEDs are extremely bright

    Love it great price
    Put 15 network drops in a new business was able to test each connection to make sure it was wire correctly. Should have bought one of these a long time ago.

    PROS: Really easy to use and understand

    CONS: None

    PROS: Makes you confident of your cable work. Inexpensive.

    CONS: None.

    Dud, replaced quickly
    Actually got a dud tester first time, contacted support and had it replaced in 2 days. Didn't have to pay any extra shipping or anything. Second one works great!

    PROS: visual and sound confirmation

    Great for the Price
    I really liked this device especially for the price. One problem that I had was that the PASS light didn't work right out of the box. Contacted support they promptly sent a new one with a return shipping label for the return. Would have been a 10 if it hadn't been defective.

    PROS: Great value, easy to use, audible PASS function.

    CONS: Came defective, see review.

    Easy to use
    This little tester saves time and money. connect it and with the one button operation quickly test your newly made cable. Green means go and red means Oh no. Make sure the cable is completely unplugged from any source or you'll fry the tester.

    PROS: Small, Lightweight, Easy to Use.

    CONS: Case is a little flimsy, no instructions but if you're making your own cables, you should be able to figure it out.
