Great deal, grabbed one to throw in my work box. This is half the price of anything comparable. Don't think I've ever seen a cable tester less than $30-$40. Thanks op!

That said, looks like best price available on this device.
Hard to find too many places to compare price- doesn't look very largely distributed/mainstream. Seems like only one official photo of the device too, strange.
Not a brand I'm very familiar with.
Livewire have been a brand for a long time. Not necessarily thought of as 'the best', but they make usable products that work. I've used plenty of their stage boxes/snakes/DI's etc over the years.

And...it's a cable tester. This one shouldn't require too much thought lol. Do you need a cable tester? Then this is is a fantastic deal and you should snag it. Only caveat I see is there is no CAT5 plug on this box (more common now on these devices since that is now a commonly used connection in the pro audio world).

I own this unit and I can tell you it's very well made. I make all my own instrument and patch cables. I don't use it that often, but it's very handy when you need it. The only caveat I have is that the TRS plugs being on opposite sides makes testing short pedal patch cables difficult, but I typically use the continuity tester on those any way. I highly recommend it for any PA toting musician or sound man's go-bag.

If I didn't have a multimeter for those rare times, I would have bought this. Great deal if you frequently need to test cables you can't use a multimeter for.

Thanks for your post. If it had cat5, I would probably get it just incase... Although I guess I don't "need" it either way, having something like this would save time when diagnosing cables

Been looking for a tester that has Speakon to replace my 10 year old Behringer tester that refuses to die. This will do nicely. Thanks OP.

Really, over a 13 dollar order and a month delay? One could always cancel the order.
