The crimper is sufficiently built to withstand the rigours of the occasional user. It would probably work fine making lots of connections every day but, if you're going to be making a lot of connections, for repeatability and comfort, I would recommend a more expensive tool. With that said, I have tried a few test connections and the crimper works great.

I wish I had this cable tester years ago when I was making more of these cables. I used to verify the connections with a couple of fine tip probes and a multimeter, and only if I had problems after installation. Although there doesn't seem to be much to it, the cable tester positively verifies which connections got crossed, shorted, or open. I would recommend at least this level of cable tester for anybody making these cables. It is a great time saver.

The only reason I didn't give this five stars is because the 50 connectors that come with it are poor quality. They are for stranded cable only and the clip is so poorly designed that it doesn't hold the connector into the receptacle very well. This is a very common problem with cheap connectors. In other words, don't buy this for the included connectors. This tool is easily worth the price without the connectors anyway. I went out and bought some RJ45 connectors that are made for solid cables. Once I used those, everything fit and stayed together just fine.

Great value, cable tester helped to show what was wrong with the drop preventing gigabit operation. Cable heads are normally $7 for 10 at Home Depot and a crimper locally is over $20 by itself. From order to receipt of product was 3 days total, great service!

I don't use this tool often but have needed to replace ends occasionally and it works for that. The crimper seems to break the little piece of plastic that is supposed to hold the cable into the plug but I think it may have to do with the quality of the RJ45 Connectors. For the price it works as expected.

I bought this product not to long ago and it has allowed me to make several ethernet cables for my house. I now have my entire house wired with ethernet cables so slow wifi connection is not a problem.
This product was cheap, and it got delivered relatively fast.

Does what is says on the box. Inexpensive, reasonable quality. Instructions could have been better (eg. which way do I put the uncrimped head into the tool?), but you figure it out after playing with it for about 2 minutes. Exceptional value overall.

Crimper is of reasonable quality. The cable tester unit seems a bit weak but does come in a little case (not shown in photos). For the odd few times I will need these tools they are great for me and certainly excellent value.
