    Default Cheap Network Cable Tester (Cat5) $6.99 free shipping

    Here is a cheap network cable tester. $6.99 plus free shipping. It will allow you to test your LOR network (cat5) cabling. It might not stand up to heavy usage but for most of us it should be fine.

    I can't speak to the quality of this unit, but functionally, it appears to be the same as the unit I got from Home Depot, now retailing for about $24. I don't know if the case and two short cat5 cables my unit includes is worth the extra money.

    Al - "plus free shipping" - isn't that an oxymoron? Anyway, they dropped the price to $5.99, shipping included.

    If this is still too much money, check out this deal. $1 plus 2.29 shipping.

    Jack, x +0 =x. An oxymoron is " figure of speech that combines normally contradictory terms" as defined by Wikipedia not by me. Your example doesn't constitute an oxymoron.

    I can give you an 800 number that takes credit cards and money orders too. I am not responsible for anything that I "make" or offer to sell from my website. Did I tell you about Al's Mega Wash Super Duper LED RGB Display Thingy? Good lord, I could have sold dozens on speculation and hype alone. Ask Deb, she says I could have sold this stuff to John regardless.

    An 800 number! I'm impressed. I would have expected a 900 number! Most all of them accept my credit cards

    I placed an order for the tester and a wireless keyboard/mouse. Given that it may be coming by slow boat, I don't expect it to show up for a week or so....will let y'all know how it works out...

    New location - new display. Looking forward to 2015 season!

    Mark,

    The tester I ordered from them last fall took almost a month to arrive.

    Some other stuff I ordered last week, I had in 5 days from China.

    Mark,

    I got a notice too but the tracking number didn't work. Did you have a similar situation?

    Tracking number worked for me, at least it said that Fedex has picked up the package in California.

    But I ordered more than just the tester, I picked up a refurb wireless kybd/mouse, too.

    I have a tester that looks just like that on the web site. It works just fine. I paid $10 at MicroCenter locally here in the Atlanta area.
