Over 258,263 professionals have used IT Central Station research.
Compare the best Network Diagnostics vendors based on product reviews, ratings, and comparisons.
All reviews and ratings are from real users, validated by our triple authentication process.
The total ranking of a product, represented by the bar length, is based on a weighted aggregate score.
The score is calculated as follows: The product with the highest count in each area gets the highest available score.
(20 points for Reviews; 16 points for Views, Comparisons, and Followers.)
Every other product gets assigned points based on its total in proportion to the #1 product in
that area. For example, if a product has 80% of the number of reviews compared to the product
with the most reviews then the product's score for reviews would be 20% (weighting factor) *
80% = 16. For Average Rating, the maximum score is 32 points awarded linearly based on our
rating scale of 1-10. If a product has fewer than ten reviews, the point contribution
for Average Rating is reduced (one-third reduction in points for products with 5-9 reviews;
two-thirds reduction for products with fewer than five reviews). Reviews that are more than 24 months old,
as well as those written by resellers, are completely excluded from the ranking algorithm.

What do you think of LinkSprinter?
This is by far the best tester we have used.
Every single wiring/network/telecomm technician should have one of these in their tool bag.
It will immediately send you an email with the results of your network test or you may login to the link-live cloud service to view and export the information.
In about 15 seconds the visual indicators on the tester will tell you:
Do I have POE?
Can I ping the gateway?
Can I acquire an address?
Can I ping the internet?
You can sync this to your mobile device if your looking for additional information - Like the switch name, port and VLAN you are using. No more tracing patch cords in the data closet!
How about a quick cable test? Yep,...
