Back in January, we covered the Paladin PC Cable-Check Pro, an all-in-one gadget for testing the pinout and continuity of common computer cables. But who’s got $130 for a cable tester? Try this one for $30. MCM Electronics is clearing out this discontinued Tenma-branded tester, which offers essentially the same features.
It looks identical to the one I own, except mine is branded “Pro’sKit.” If you do any real work with RS232 cables and adapters, consider picking one up; it saves a lot of time and headaches! Note: Shipping starts at $8, but that’s still a deall.
