    Whirlwind MCT-7 reviews

    MCT7 - Multi Connector Cable Tester is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 14.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from MCT7 Passes all Tests Finally a cable tester that does it all, including B&C. With a bag full of other testers now of marginal use, this tester with the rotary switch will replace them all. Whirlwind knows what they are doing, and did the MCT7 exactly right!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from MCT7 -Cable Tester -Great Product This product is very versatile in that it can test 7 different types of cables. It is extremely easy to use and works well for its intended purpose. It is constructed well, and seems to be very durable. I am very happy with this product.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Happy customer Works as advertised and is well-constructed. 'Nuff said! Would be even better if it had RJ45 / Ethernet connection testing. Would also benefit from belt clip for those on the move.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from MCT7 - Cable tester, a lifesaver I am addicted to my MCT7 cable tester. I run various video outside broadcast setups and constantly work with a large range of cabling. This cable tester forms an integral part of my problem solving process. Also handy to figure out pin configuration on balanced to unbalanced XLR cables. I also use this cable tester to check cabling after every rental. It shows cable continuity and short-circuits in cables, as well as correct pin configuration.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Whirlwind to the Rescue This is a must have product. It's small, easy to use, and provides quick concise answers to cable problems. I use this to check out my cables before packing up to do an audio or video project, plus I take it with me. I can jiggle the connections as I test to see whether the male or the female connector is bad and see exactly which pin is at fault. Recently on a large production, we had several hundred yards of SDI and XLR cables going from a switcher to multiple cameras for a live event. During the setup we tested all the cables and replaced a handful of cables that had issues. Had we not had this tester, we would have spent a lot of time switching out cables, cameras and wondering if the switcher had issues. The only issue I had with the tester was the battery compartment. The holder for the 9V battery was loose when I got it. It was easily fixed with a few drops of hot glue.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from So easy a 9th grader can use it... As a teach teacher, the students are always damaging cables (by accident) this tools let them trouble shoot audio and video problems in a snap.. Step one in trouble shooting is to check the cable and this tool does it very quick and easy.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from A great tool to have in the bag This works great and is very well priced for such a versatile item. Perfect for video engineers, DIT's, and utilities. Really helps troubleshooting by eliminating faulty cable.
