Well worth the money. While it doesn t do an actual bandwidth test, checking the continuity with this device will tell you if your cable is good or bad 99.9% of the time. You can check short cables or longer installed runs with the included remote display unit.

I looked at similar items in the big box stores for more than twice the price. I ve never used a CAT5 tester before, so I m not sure if those have more features for the money, but I can say that I m perfectly happy with my Paladin 1574. It already saved me a lot of trouble by alerting me that I was wiring my CAT5 jacks to the wrong standard. I was mistakenly using the T568B standard, when my structured wiring panel requires the T568A standard. Without the tester, I wouldn t have discovered this until I was all done. Then someday down the road I d try to put a gigabit network on the wires, and it would fail.

It may not be obvious how this thing works, even if you read the instruction sheet, but it s dead simple. You connect one end of your cable to the "out" jack on the main unit and the other end to the remote unit. The main unit sends a pulse to each pin, while you watch the lights on the remote. If the cable is good, the lights corresponding to pins 1 thru 8 will come on and go off in sequence. If the sequence is different at the remote, then something is wrong.

Two high quality jumpers with RJ45 connectors are provided, and everything fits into the nylon carrying case. There s even a slot in the back of the case for the instruction sheet. You ll want to keep this with you because the instructions explain how to interpret the lights for various miswiring scenarios.

Note that this device tests only the continuity of the wiring, not its ability to support any given bandwidth. If you stretch, fold, or mutilate your cables, or if you do a sloppy job with the terminations, the wires might test fine according to this device, but you might not get the date transfer rates you expect. There is no device in this price range that will perform a bandwidth test.

I liked it so much I bought a second one. The only reason it didn t get 5 stars is the first one had an LED burn out after about a year and that was too soon. The new one (cheaper to buy the whole unit than replace the troubled part) is working fine and everyone who uses it loves it. Since I don t know how the unit with the bad LED got treated by people who borrowed it from me I don t penalize the manufacture much.
