Excellent product. But the battery compartment DOH!
Simoof 12.08.2015
OK at first I thought this is the worst designed battery compartment ever. It did not make contact with the terminals well enough to keep contact. I was about to return it when I tried one last time. This time I pushed in and down and I heard a click... and now I think its the best designed battery compartment ever. In and down.
Well this is a must tool for any tech, sound engineer or musician if you are a sole traveller. Bands, buy one. At this price its the cheapest of its kind. But the quality of the unit is unbelievable. This is a tank.
Plug one end of the cable into the correct socket. Plug the other end to the correct socket for it. And config seems to be catered for. Turn the switch to the numbers. The corresponding light will light up. Now you will need to know a little about how your cables should be wired but for guitar leads and balanced xlr, 1 to 1 , 2 to 2 and 3 to 3 should be the norm.
If the connectors are not standard, you can even use the supplied probes to test continuity. It beeps. So no need to hold the probes steady to glance at a light.

With connectors in place, shake the cable whilst testing and you will see if theres a break.

Now it is not going to fix your cables, but it will tell you which ones are good to use and which ones need to go to the repair man or the bin.

Its big and bulky to allow for speakon cables. It is worth every penny.

All you need is a 9v battery. It even has a built in battery check.

Nifty device, but poor build quality
Fløh 23.03.2021
So if you're looking to get a bang for your buck, but don't mind build quality at all, this device is definitely for you. It definitely has enough connectivity but basically still remains just a continuity checker. So don't expect anything fancy at this price point.

The most disappointing part was actually the build quality, which held me back to actually use this product (but it wasn't that bad that I had to send it back). It was just a bit lower than my expectation (e.g. the battery compartment has to be pried open with a flat-head screwdriver). It feels very cheap as well, so I'm not too eager on using this device in a professional application, but it's fine for home use.

Good value for the money
Anonymous 04.01.2016
The tool initially came with the 9V battery compartment plastic drawer chipped at the corner. I didn't bother myself with sending the tool back but bought the replacement plastic part at the local electronics component supplier for like 5 EUR and am pretty happy ever since.

The features I use the most have saved me lots of nerves in the live situations: the sockets for checking the cables with TRS / XLR type plugs; the RJ-11/45 sockets are also fine if you are troubleshooting your LAN. And finally the simple continuity meter using the provided probes is a good reason not to carry your proper multimeter to a live gig. The unit is not battery hungry. Built like a tank.

The only donwsides are:
- the tool is guite bulky, it is around two average effect pedals size and weight wise
- there comes no gigbag with it, so I use a heavy duty blister packaging for carrying it around

If the tool gets broken or lost I would consider buying smaller one from the same maker.
