i am looking into getting a tone generator to add to my testing equipment and my initial research has led me to this entry level unit with 4.5/5 star reviews for about $34. im wanting to trace some wires thru the house.

That's not bad, much better quality than the crappy harbor freight one (~$22), which has a retarded probe and finicky switch on the generator likely to deplete the battery.

ive been trying to buy the monoprice one, but ebay wont take my gift card. says it cant be applied to this order. no way have a redeemed $5k in ebay gift cards in the last month so im not sure whats up. could be a sign though.

I just bought one on amazon for $25. It works ok, but when im at my patch panel I can hear the tone from multiple ports away... its kinda crappy and hard to pinpoint where the tone is coming from. Not sure about these monoprice ones, but I know for sure my next purchase will be a fluke.

I have the Greenlee [amazon.com] it has worked for years without fail, of course these days it pretty much just sits in my tool box [batteries removed] waiting patiently for me to break it out again.
