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.

PROS: - The price is right
- Comes with a 9V battery
- Easy to use

CONS: - Doesn't do your taxes
First unit was DOA, monoprice quickly replaced by cross-shipping and provided a free RMA shipping label.
But for what it is and does it does very well.
Dirt cheap too. Love monoprice.
Does exactly what it says
Comes with a 9v
CONS: None really as long as all you need it for is rj45 cables
PROS: Easy to use
CONS: LEDs are extremely bright
PROS: - Saves time and gives at a glance results (a huge convenience if testing multiple cables).
- Has step feature if you prefer to watch it walk through each strand
- very fast test.
- low bat. indicator (I've actually had a low batt. give intermittent false fails on a cheaper unit.)
CONS: Would prefer that it also had coax or rj11, but for the money its hard to complain!
For the cost, this was a great tester. I'm not sure that a more expensive one would ever be needed since this did exactly what I needed.
PROS: Easy to use and very accurate results.
CONS: Slide off module is a bit difficult to get off at first but was fine after the first couple times. They could mark the direction to slide it a bit better.
PROS: Really easy to use and understand
PROS: Makes you confident of your cable work. Inexpensive.
PROS: visual and sound confirmation
PROS: Great value, easy to use, audible PASS function.
CONS: Came defective, see review.
