Workshop Week - Hand Tools

: (

Unless its my mistake, the lan tester set is twice as much than amazon has it for. Tell me Im wrong and woot is not a passing fad thats passed on.

would buy the greenlee tools if they came in a set

It’s twice as much as I think it’s worth. It only lights up what pins are directly connected as they should be? I got a tester like that for $15 when I first became an IT tech. Something that simplistic is mostly useful just for making sure you terminated a cable right, and that’s all.

It says it’s also a tone generator, but without a tone receiver (different from the included receiver unit) that function is useless.

Save your money on the cable tester. Get a cheaper one with the same functionality elsewhere. Or spend more and get more functionality and a better readout.
