I want to purchase a used instrument for testing the quality of Cat5e and
Cat6 cabling along with distance measurement to any shorts or open circuits.
Which model should I look for, what gives me most functionality and quality
for the bucks. I'm thinking of around USD 500-1000 on eBay
Thanks for comments and hints
Here's a pretty impressive little tester that we use to verify patch
cables for re-use. It's no $5k Fluke, but it has a remarkable feature
set. It might do what you want -- for about $500 from
