Network Computing recognized the LinkRunner G2 as an, “essential handheld test tool for the physical layer.” Commenting on the decision to award the Bench Tested Product of the Year to the LinkRunner G2, Smyth added, “We think that it has been well thought out and takes handheld testers to the next level, at an affordable price, making it indispensable.
