I expected too much from this device in part because of the great reviews. The app also looks pretty good until you get the device. I was looking for a testing tool to quickly find issues but I find this to be more of a clunky toy type gadget. It is slow to respond and lacks range to communicate on long runs back to the network closet . I have other tools that I am much more comfortable with and will give results quickly. This may be great for some but not me.Return was painless and professional

I've been using this app/device for almost 4 years now and it's been invaluable. I use this almost every day to ID ports. The infrastructure is really bad at where I work so this saves me from hand tracing. There are multiple different networks and vlans as well and this does a great job IDing them as well. I baby it as the plastic ends, I feel, could crack easily but the case protects it well. If testing a lot of jacks and cables you can sometimes hang the app and I have to close, reopen, and reconnect. usually doesn't happen that often though. I like the reporting aspect of it but I don't use it that often. Nine times out of ten I'm strictly ID'ing a switch port. The end to end testing is OK but sometimes it's not reliable.

I think this device and app is developed for network maintainers and administrators like myself. IANA professional cable installer. I have had access to the Fluke Linkrunner AT2000 tools occasionally and for my uses the pockethernet compares well. I have owned the device for about a year and half. App almost never crashes or hangs for me. I remember one instance I did have to restart phone to get app working. I tried to register for the forums but can't at this time, thus no 4th or 5th star.
