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: Quick and easy to use.
CONS: Does not test for short or crossed lines. Therefore, if the cable shows that it passes, it may still not be ok to use.
PROS: Nice, neat compact unit easy to use.
CONS: Not always accurate. I have had it test cables and outlet connections as good but they must have been weak. Tested with another unit, showed bad. Replaced connectors and they worked fine. Too bad...otherwise I like it.
PROS: very simple and easy to use. a all in one tool.
PROS: Easy to use.
CONS: Can't tell if you have a crossover cable.

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!

This is a simple tool, as the price indicates. Advanced features for detailed troubleshooting and identifying issues should look at other tools. Those tools should be used for Full Time Network Admins and Engineers.
PROS: Quick Simple
CONS: ...eh, wish it came with some short RJ-45's for checking Patch to Drop.
