Worked like it was supposed to. We used it to trace out speaker wiring in a house so we knew where to cut our holes for the speakers. We also use it when we run CAT5/6 in office buildings to trace the cable from the outlet back to the switch or punch down. The only slight problem we had was when we would trace the speaker wire. I guess the signal was strong and we would get some induction on the other wire that we were not tracing. But we didn't miss a hole or cut in the wrong spot, the wire was there.

This thing works well for its intended purpose and is of high quality. To one of the earlier posters, it isn't *supposed* to find wiring behind wall board, it is intended to locate wires on a punch down block or other available source. And for that job, it works perfectly. Highest recommendation.

I have been using this "toner" kit for more than a year now on a nearly daily basis and it works very well. I use it in an industrial environment for identifying circuit wiring for things such as street and area lighting, motor wiring, instrumentation wiring and the like. It is one of the most used and most useful items in my tool collection and has proven to be very durable and reliable over this entire time. This is a great product for what is was designed to do.

This isn't professional grade but seems to get the job done. I used it in several homes where installers poorly labeled the data and cable tv lines in a central communications box. Used it in some homes varying from 6 total cable/data lines to one that had over 40. Hasnt disappointed me yet.

PROS:

1. Its cheap. Units with similar capabilities cost about 3 or 4 times as much.

2. Has most of the bells and whistles. The pacakge comes in three pieces. There is a main unit that has only a phone and data connector (RJ11 and RJ45). The add-on unit that has a receptacle for the data connector to connect it to the main unit and offer capability for male coax or alligator clips (the inset picture in the product. The third piece is the sensor itself that looks like a long pen. It has a speaker with volume/sensitivity level control.

3. The sensitivity volume has a range of sensitivity that I haven't fully explored. I have bundled coax and data cables coming into a central hub. When I first tried to find a particular cable, I had the speaker turned up to loudest. This basically caused every cable to give off a signal. I then had to turn it down to isolate only the strongest signal from the cable I was looking for. If adjacent cables can pick up signal, this could be useful in certain situations.

4. It comes with a nice little case that holds and protects everything.

CONS:

1. The plastic packaging was poor (clear plastic shell packaging). The owner's manual had fallen out at somepoint in packaging/shipping process. I just today realized that the manual is available on Amazon's site.

2. Could be an isolated incident, but Amazon's normally speedy service got this to me in about 4 weeks. Very slow by their standards.

I bought this tone generator to track down some speaker wires in the ceiling that had been installed during initial construction. Because they were in a highly visible location, I needed to be precise when cutting the hole for the speakers. The Extech worked for this application but beware that the tone is fairly weak and the detector tip must be within a few inches to pick it up. Worked OK through sheetrock.

I had an electrical outlet go "dead" in my bathroom. I checked breakers, connections, etc with no luck. It had worked previously...very frustrating! I bought the Extech tone generator and amplifier probe to trace the line through the house so I could get to the bottom of the problem. I threw the breaker, clamped the alligator clips on as instructed, turned the tone generator on, and EASILY traced the signal from my bathroom, through my upstairs bedroom, into a closet, down a set of stairs, into the utility room, and finally.....into a small bathroom that I never use that had a....GCFI outlet that tripped. Reset pressed and boom...power back on. The unit gave a clear signal through walls, ceilings, and paneling. I'm VERY happy with this product. The build and carry case are such that it will last me a lifetime.

Very good choice for an initial investment for a non powered circuit finder. Kit comes complete with a carrying case but no batteries. Good for checking circuits less than 150 feet since the signal from the tone generator becomes weaker the greater the distance from the signal generator. Construction of the amplifier probe is okay but I would not drop it. The tone generator is more ruggedly constructed.

Nice compact device. I was hoping the use of the 'Amplified' in the name of the tool would allow me to be able to trace a wire with only one end disconnected from a device. This is not the case. I doubt any tracer can be use on an active line.

I also found the switch to be a little loose in that you can inadvertently throw it to the right most position without knowing it.

The probe is a little too sensitive in that if an active wire is near the one you are trying to trace, you will hear a buzzing along with the tones.
