I've been using a CT-100 for about 2 months and I'm ordering another just to keep in the studio.Years ago I fasioned my own cable continuity tester for 1/4" and XLR cables and spent, I'm sure, well over 20 bucks in parts. Not only does Behringer's CT-100 have more features than my old "Dave's-Do-It-Yourself 1000" (ok, I just made up that name), but it accomodates nearly every cable you'd want to test for live or studio sound setups. Here are (in my view) the main pluses:1) Visual and/or audible indicators - NICE2) Intermittent indicator - VERY NICE3) Portability and durability - REALLY VERY NICE4) Value - AMAZINGI've found that the CT-100's manual covers all the high points quite clearly although a basic understanding of electronics is gonna be helpful here. I don't baby my gear and my CT-100 continues to function after two months of pretty solid gigging - I wouldn't recommend using it as a door stop, hammer or stepstool, though.BOTTOM LINE: If you looking for a cable tester, get the Behringer CT-100 - not the "Dave's-Do-It-Yourself 1000".

The instructions... well, there really aren't any. To make your life easier, what follows is what the lights mean:

for guitar cables tyhe lights should look like this (X = lit, 0 = unlit):
x xox
x oxo
x xox

for XLR (microphone) cables:
x oox
x oxo
x xoo
Does what it's supposed to do
Very solid. No worries about damaging it.
This price? An excellent value. I've wasted WAY more replacing cables needlessly...

    It took a bit of trial an error to figure out what lights should be lit for various cables. The how-to-use part of the manual (non-existent) should be created.

      Comments about Behringer CT-100 Cable Tester:

      So easy even a child could use it and probably better than I could.
      I picked this one over other ones in the price range because it can indicate
      an intermittent open.

            Bought one about 5 years ago for use at our small church and outreach building. The box accepts all the cable ends we use. And, continues to do well exactly what it is supposed to even after numerous drops and falls.
            I am buying this one for my daughter's, in-laws who lead a Worship team with classic "cable issues."

                works well, and lights up nicely, seems to be good quality uses 2 @ AA batteries. The main weakness is how to read the test after it's made. I am mainly testing 1/4 guitar cords, I went online and found the pattern for
                good connections for TS 1/4" guitar chords

                x-xox
                x-oxo
                x-xox

                the x are lighted and o no light the vertical row of x are the
                intermittent signal lights
                behringer needs better instructions

                    This thing is a good addition to your gig box. If you have a suspect cable it will tell you right away. Great time saver. Directions are poor, but you really won't need them.

                    I use this to test before a gig, and again at the gig just to make sure a gremlin doesn't pop up. I discovered an intermittent cut-out in a 50' mic cable just minutes before we started, and was able to repace it in time. That one time paid for the unit, and gave me peace of mind. Well worth the price!

                    This is a good tester. I had been using a digital multimeter for all my testing, which is time consuming. This little thing is handy and fairly easy to use, (as long as you understand what the lights are telling you). Other than not having any "true" instructions this is a good tester. I wish it could test usb cords as well.
