Could be better!!
Pros: Durable
Cons: Bulky/Heavy,Limited Functions,Pricey / Poor Value

This does the job. I have mainly used it for XLR options. Not very easy to operate as you need to turn the knob for each connection. For example for XLR turn the knob 3 times to see if connections are ok. I can't understand why that part couldn't be automated. Also I noticed the device does not have a off switch. So hope the battery doesn't drain as this is not something that would be used regularly. Construction is solid but bit too large. One good feature is that it has a continuity tester. I have reservation recommending this to anyone.
