Yeah, I'm not looking for certification, I just want to be able to test
that the cable's wired correctly with no short, opens, or split pairs.

I'm 99% certain the Klein will be all I need, but just want to make sure
there isn't something the $105 Fluke does that the $45 Klein doesn't
that I don't know I need.
