This is my second one, after about 2 years of the first one fell apart, the buttons stopped working and the clips came off. I've only used this one a few times and already the buttons (when calling a number) are not always working
PROS: ok if you use infrequently
CONS: prone to break or not work correctly in the first year
Wasn't expecting a lot when I ordered this because of the low price, but when it came in I was very impressed with how it felt and looked. Only been using it for a short time but seems like it's heavy duty enough for what I use it for and the price was great.
When I purchased it I was so happy with it. But all of a sudden, the phone now has a very loud noise in it. I'm able to dial out but I can't hear a dial tone. Instead I hear a terrible noise. I'm an alarm technician and I only use it to check if I have a dial tone or not and check the phone number. So I'm not a telephone tech that uses the buttset everyday. I use it once in a while and I'm very careful with my tools. Even it still looks brand new. However, I'm very disappointed with this item.
Thank you for your review on PID 8136. My apologies for the inconvenient experience you have had while using this test set. If I may ask, do you happen to have the order number for this purchase? Please let me know so we can look into this matter further. Thank you in advance!

Great product with all the features that you might need.
This phone test set does everything I need it to do and more .I highly recommend it to anyone that needs to find phone numbers.
No frills, fully functional lineman's test sen. No surprises. Perform as expected.
PROS: No frills "butt set" it works quite well. Has all of the expected buttons. Lightweight.
CONS: Some may expect the unit to be heavier. I like it light. The plastic seems a bit flimsy, and I wouldn't want to try to use it after it was dropped but at the price Monoprice sells them, you could buy a spare.
