Customer Review

Reviewed in the United States on October 14, 2017
I first saw how many reviews it had and the stars it had and thought this would be a good item to get. I mean how can all these 1k reviews be wrong? When I first received the 3 sperry testers I was super excited. The size was perfect, compact and it doesn't block the outlet either above or below of the one you plug it into. They felt solid and the rubber molding on the sides was a nice feature. I go to plug it into an outlet and Major disapointment. It was so difficult to tell which lights were on. The small bulbs in there are not bright so they are hard to see during the day time and worse of all the light of one bulb will bleed into the compartment of the bulb next to it making it seem like the other bulb is on also on. I believe a tool should help you solve problems, not add the problem of then trying to decipher what code its throwing with the lights. So I start plugging in the other 2 sperry testers and find out one of the testers has a bulb that won't light. Bummer but hey it happens things get dropped during shipping etc. But what was really concerning to me was the bad reading for open ground. I plug the tester into an outlet that has no ground hooked up to it and it would read as correctly wired. I was already going to return because of how difficult it was to read it due to the bad lighs but this was really reassuring I was doing the right thing sending it back. Trust me, I am not the type of person to send back items for something minor things but this just adds problems. I recommend you go for a different tester.
