This looks pretty cool. I love my network cable tester. Cables are getting pretty cheap (as least the Monoprice-level stuff I use), so I feel that I'd be better off just putting this $30 towards replacement cables as needed. But I would appreciate anyone's experiences or opinions on this tester.

Is there a compatible receiver or this is only useful if both ends of the cables are plugged into it?

It's very helpful for testing wires that may be in your walls. Wires like coaxial and ethernet are not easily replaced when in the wall may be good to test first.

Yeah but on a small scale (not 20 cables or something) that's not really hard to do with a multimeter, is it?

Would be nice if this could tell you the quality of the connection. Coax/Ethernet. Don't usually have issues with continuity, but would be cool to know if replacing a cable would make for a stronger signal.

How is this useful for testing wires in your walls when both ends need to be plugged into the device?

This is really more for the audio industry as in pro audio speakers and line/mic level xlr connections. I see it has some data connections for continuity test. I don't like it as much as the Behringer models or the swizztek because it doesn't have intermittent indicator.. often times an XLR mic cable will have an intermittent fault that's hard to diagnose. Those two companies will tell you which conductor and if it's an intermittent fault so you can put that cable aside and fix it later later and get on with the show... so again this is really more for audio and not IT there are much better LAN cable testers out there...

This is handy for me as a musician with multiple cables. I only buy cables with lifetime warranties, so this saves a trip to the store to test a faulty cable.

Lifetime warranty cables; Monster, Livewire, Mogami, etc
