    CT-3 Advanced Cable Tester is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 4.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy to use, high quality, and great price This is an outstanding unit in my opinion.? I do live sound.? Nice strong metal box and the unit comes apart into two pieces to test either very short cables like for a guitarist's pedal board or long cables.? I highly recommend this unit.? The battery leads are nice and long.? Easy to use.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great quality product A solid built, metal cable tester. I've only used it to test BNC and RJ45 so far, but it's been an incredible product. Helps me double check patching in venues where the wiring isn't always labeled properly. Very clear LED's while testing. Will definitely buy this one again.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from dbx CT-3 Advanced Cable Tester Great!  Seems to be pretty durable too. However, I wish there were an option to test HDMI cables - then it would cover all the cables I am likely to encounter (with current technologies).
