Electrically fragile - will probably quit working very quickly When they say "not for live circuits" they MEAN IT. You better know where your line goes ahead of time because if you guess wrong and plug it in to something that is live you will blow the LEDs rendering it useless. Chances are you'll destroy it the first or second time you use it - it apparently has zero circuit protection against anything out if its expected electrical values. And if your cat 5/6 wire happens to be POE-enabled you might as well smash it with a hammer because it will be dead lickety-split. I was trying to trace and verify 50+ of in-wall wires and only made it through about 1/3 before I stumbled across a POE surveillance camera and that was the end of that. 1Great Quick-Tester Unit Great tester, the best I have ever owned. My previous unit got broken from people borrowing it and not being careful. I ordered the NT3 model thinking I upgraded and because it has the USB capability. I dont regret the upgrade but the upgraded model is only automatic. It does not allow you to test a single wire manually. I could not find the NT2 model so I bought other economic models, but they all test wire-pairs. I finally found the NT2 on Amazon again and bought it...immediately putting it to use on the job. This is a great tester. I now have my NT3 and NT2 testers along with a variety of USB adapters to include mini and micro USB adapters to test the new LAN switches with mini USB ports for their console ports.Single best quick tester, as most issues just require you to test continuity. 5Works great on my small networks. I had one of these for the last 5 years. It just died 2 days ago. Its easy, works great on the networks i run, and is easy to use. Don't forget to get the tone generator for it! Makes a huge difference and is so easy. I would not recommend it for the more "rugged" user, though. Its great for me, i use it a couple times a month at most, usually it sits in a drawer in the case it came with. But its definitely not meant to be thrown or dropped on a regular basis. 5There are better tools out there This device, and its companion TC-TP1 probe, have a price:features issue. I bought this with the TC-TP1 for work. At home I have a cheap VicTsing toner/tester, and it's more capable than this setup for what I'm doing.PROS:-The transmitter is capable of testing a cable plugged into itself, or at the other end of the remote terminator.-Better built than the VicTsing. Definitely of higher quality-Can stop on a single wire for troubleshooting, or will continuously test all 8, one after another. VicTsing can not stop on a single wire.-Comes with adapters for testing/toning BNC cables-TC-TP1 has non-conductive probe tip for insulation from electrical currentsCONS:-This tester does not come with an RJ11 to alligator clip adapter, for attaching directly to wires. This becomes an issue when attempting to trace a cable that you do not intend to terminate with RJxx plug or jack. The VicTsing comes with it.-This device is more than the VicTsing, and doesn't include the toning probe.-This comes with a carrying case, the TC-TP1 probe does not. The VicTsing is only 2 pieces, and comes with a case that fits everything, and the two pieces attach to each other without a case.-2.5mm headphone jack. VicTsing has standard 3.5mm. 2.5mm seriously limits your options.-You have to flip a switch to go from speaker to headphones. Why the headset plug doesn't have this capability built in, is confusing.-Only generates one tone type which generates no tones in the higher frequencies, which makes the tone harder to hear (at least, for some). VicTsing has two different tones, one being the standard high/low alternating frequency tone used on many other tone generators.-No light on the TC-TP1. VicTsing has an LED.-Must continually press the trace button on the TC-TP1. VicTsing has the option to press button, or switch on constant.The transmitter has two completely different button styles. It really looks like it was designed in the 90's. To me, it's just weird.for this and the TC-TP1 probe, it's almost 3 times as expensive as the VicTsing. I'm pretty sure I'll return these and get the VicTsing. It's a bit cheaper feeling, but seems to be a better fit for my needs. 3Terrible reliability over the long run These fail quickly. I've bought two of them. The first one failed in 3 months of light use. The second one finished the job and then sat for a few years. It then failed just a few cables into the next job. It seems to be the receiving unit that failed the second time (always showing wire 1 being bad). Complete waste of money now that there are many cheaper options on the market. Don't waste your money on this one. I'm trying a model from Elegiant now that can trace cables as well, for half the price, and with better reviews. Most of the reviews for this Trendnet model are based on an initial use. And on initial use it does work. Trust me, they will fail when needed down the road. After replacing 5 or 6 connectors on the same cable thinking you've made a repeated mistake, you will agree with me. I first bought one of these in 2011. The model number has not changed, so no reason to think they have improved anything in the past 5 years. 1Works but not the best feedback I get the same results with cables plugged in or out. On cables I know are good and tested. Update, if your battery gets weak you don't know if the cable just isn't connected right at all or if the battery is low. You get the exact same lights on the main unit, and no lights on the remote unit. I wouldn't recommend this one. I found this one https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00DQH4XPW to be a lot better because it at least tells you if it's connected or not connected, doesn't matter if I have a low battery or not. There's more information to go off of. 2Simple fault finder I just ran a couple CAT6 cables and waited to receive this device before terminating them to RJ45 connectors on both sides.I worked in telephony for over 30 years and am now retired. I've run many CAT5 and some CAT6 cables in the past and just hooked them up with laptops or other devices on the ends to see if they worked. I found a short between two adjacent pins with one CAT6 and it looked like a bad crimp on the my end run. I clipped the suspect end off and then retested from the base unit. It showed clear, so you can troubleshoot from one side, contrary to another review. If it was a short in the cable run it would not have cleared, or could have been a crimp fault as well. From now on I will crimp one side, test it and then hook up the other side. This is a simple device, but it will give you a good idea on troubleshooting by process of elimination. It obviously will not test an open in the cable run with one end connected as it can't detect an unbalance. I'm happy I bought it for now, am scared about the reviews regarding longevity and would recommend it. 4STAY AWAY FROM THIS TESTER Failed on me the second time that I used it and cost me time trying to fix a problem that wasn't even there. At one job, the tester actively failed as it worked fine when I tested a line I know was good just to get familiar with the tester and make sure it's working right, then when in use for real, one channel went out on me prompting me to test everything else to find the issue (couldn't be the tester since I just tested it), then before I was done, another channel went out making me think I made the issue worse. I wasted so much time and I'll definitely be spending a bit more money on my next tester to assure this doesn't happen again. 1For simplicity -it works, just doesn't test the SHEILD conductor. xBaseT tester as well as xBase 2. For simplicity -it works, just doesn't test the SHEILD conductor. xBaseT tester as well as xBase 2.Its not a complex device - it is a 9v batter, and an array of LEDs to show conductivity through a cable's various conductors, plus some minor logic to auto-step through the sequence of conductors so you can test two remote ends of the same run with one person.Plug one end of cable into tester's remote port, other end of run into the remote, turn on, press the auto button, and the tester cycles through the various cat5 conductors. Go to the remote end and verify those are lighting on in sequence, and you can feel good the cable is put together right. (if they light out of order, then its not right, if some don't light its not right: except the SHIELD - which never lights on the remote).OR plug both ends of the cable into the testor in 'loop back' and it tests it just the same.The shield indicator never lights on the remote - not with my cables, not with the short cable that came with the unit; so I assume its not designed to light.BNC to RJ45 adapters provided (2x) to allow using this on a 2 conductor 10base2 style network if you have that old school tech still installed. 3Perfectly competent all the way around. So far, I haven't found anything to dislike about this particular tester. I will fuss on one nit picky issue, but it is an almost universal nit to pick so oh well...This review by the way, should be taken in context with my review on the TrendNet TC-TP1 tone probe as these two tools are tightly related, and make up a large chunk of my testing / verification equipment for network installs.Out of the box, the tester is well packaged, basic documentation is included. The simple battery compartment is like most other cable testers I have ever used, far too flexible when the compartment is empty, giving you the feeling you are going to shove your finger through it when you open the compartment for the first time. Once a battery is installed however, there is plenty of support, and the cover operates smoothly.The ports, switches, and lights are all well labelled, and easy to understand. Plug your cable in, and either plug back in to the loopback, or to the remote, and slide on, push test, or push the silver button for testing one wire at a time...Tone generated from one perspective is a little weak (not loud in the probe) but by the same token, the tone generated doesn't "leak across" to other cables in a bundle. There is no mistaking which cable the signal is being sent down, making cable identification fast and easy, speeding the work up.The ethernet to BNC adapters for testing BNC terminated coaxial cable are great, if you are troubleshooting token ring networks. But let's face it. Hardly anyone still uses Token ring, and a huge number of younger techs and admins have never heard of, much less actually seen token ring. I have been in this business a long time and my only involvement in Token ring was migrating a token ring over to ethernet. So the use there is VERY limited, However with the addition of BNC male to F coax female adapters, then the tester works well for testing continuity in RG-6 coaxial cable for cable internet, TV, and satelite applications.The included carry case / storage bag is far and away the best quality case / bag of any network tester I have ever laid eyes, or hands on. I am amazed at the quality of this thing. All the others I have had, or been around included some flimsy super thin vinyl piece of garbage bag that the manufacturer should be embarassed to have their product associated with... The TrendNet bag has good quality materials, good stitching... Nothing cheap about it...Cost is considerably higher than many other low / mid range cable testers, but when you consider this is also half of a tone and probe set, the cost becomes MUCH more reasonable. When you consider the accuracy of this particular unit, and the flexibility of available tests, it comes a true bargain. 5
