What else can I say, this unit works great for me. I can't believe I've gone years without one. Whenever I've had apparent cable problems, I just bought a new cable and put the old ones in a pile. Now I can test them all rather than just buying new ones. Thus far I've found 2 cables I thought were bad to be good and one I thought was good to be bad. You know how it goes at a gig. You have a problem and just replace the cable as fast as possible. Then at the end of the night, you forget which cable is the bad one. This fixes that problem. Simple and self explanatory. Hell, it even has a USB tester.

I've used this tester extensively. This is simply not built well enough to be useful for very long. It does the job as long as it can stay together. The nut for the 1/4" jacks are PLASTIC and will break after repeated use. Also, the fact that there's USB and not 3.5mm testing is simply puzzling. Not worth the (albeit low) price tag.

    Comments about Live Wire Solutions Cable Tester:

    This cable tester is a (Must-Have) in my "toolbox"... As a professional video producer, I capture and edit the best audio signals I can.. Quality cables certainly play an important role in your chain of signals.. But if you deal with several lines ending in a junction, and recorded for video sound, you need to always know that all your signals are consistent and clean for manipulation in post production... Being able to test your cables while you are setting up a scene 10 or 15 times a day keeps you ahead of possible failures in one or more of your lines.
    This unit is so easy and convenient to use that there is not enough reasons to not incorporate this task in your production set up.
    Take a minute to test now will save hours trying to figure out which cable is failing.
    "No Brainer".
    Video Producers have to take audio recording just as serious as musicians do.

      Super easy to use and saved me 100s in unnecessary replacement cables. Really useful in assessing "inherited" cables.

      Comments about Live Wire Solutions Cable Tester:

      Great product. It costs less than other units that test fewer cable types. I did quite a bit of research before purchasing this product, and I'm very happy with the decision to buy it. Very nice quality.

      Very Handy Tool

      Comments about Live Wire Solutions Cable Tester:

      I am the owner of an older Behringer cable tester but it eventually became obsolete with new types of cabling being offered to the music industry. I saw this unit on sale and jumped it immediately because it was equipped to check all the basic cables plus speakon and even usb cables too! One of the biggest features is now you can check the cable wire by wire instead of guessing which one is really at fault! Thank you Live Wire for such a great deal and flexible tool to add to my "goodie bag" that I take with me to each gig I go document!

      great tester

      By Karl Baxter

      from Hillsboro OR

      Comments about Live Wire Solutions Cable Tester:

      when we have been at a gig and had a bad cord usually no time to test. I have been using a volt/ohm meter and is time consuming testing. This tester is easy and fast to test. Great value for testing cords.

      Not one has worked yet !

      By John Soltys

      from Chepatchet, Rhode Island

      Comments about Live Wire Solutions Cable Tester:

      My Band plays out often and we started having trouble with our cables, I wanted to get a simple tester, so I could determine what cables needed to be replaced. The first one I purchased, the number one ( Yellow light ) would not work. No big deal, I returned it today got a new one started testing a few cables and it stopped working. The battery light was not going on, I through I just had a bad battery . I put a brand new battery in, nothing. I opened the battery compartment and looking inside,one the pins broke away from it's plastic frame! I will be returning this one and I'll purchase another cable tester that is better made. I really did want to spend a lot of money on a tester, however I need something I can rely on.

      Great Value

      Comments about Live Wire Solutions Cable Tester:

      For the price I was a bit skeptical this would be worth purchasing. And was I wrong. This product is well built and well worth more than I paid for it. Testing cables with this box is simple, and saves a huge amount of time. Buy it!
