    Kopul CBT-12 reviews

    CBT-12 - 12-in-1 Cable Tester is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 6.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great tool The tool does a great job at performing the designed tasks. The single switch that steps through the tests for all cable types is nice. I suggest a useful addition for testing USB cables. The current unit has Type A and Type B connectors for USB (standard USB cable) Many USB cables these days have a Type A on one end and mini, micro or other on the other end. It would be great to have these connectors in the vicinity of the Type B connector to enable testing of these common USB cables.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from too much and yet too little, but good all around as a musician and computer tech i need to keep my cables in good shape - this is good for testng a wide variety of pro cables used by audio techs but strangely is missing some crucial cables like usb 3.0, usb c, mini-usb, firewire, lightning and submini headphone type cables. maybe the company should make a separate tester just for computer cables and another just for audio and video cables?

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Needed in every trouble shooter kit. With today's needs do Cat 5 and 6 in the audio world it's nice to have that feature. Only thing missing is the 1/8th Jack. Guess I'll have to have an adaptor. Well worth the money though. Less expensive than the last one (another manufacturer) and more possible cables.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great tool! A must buy tool for Audio technician. It has all you need for testing if cables are faulty. Very compact. I use this for a quick check if cables are the problem.
