Superb Stuff

" There are many cable detectors out there and there are lots of disappointed users, so I went for the one in my price range that got the best reviews. I was not disappointed. I found it simple to use and it found the location of the cable in question immediately. I would definitely recommend the Bosch PDO 6. "

Great product

" Purchased this on the strength of the other review and I have not been disappointed. The product works well and detects all metals and electrics that I have in my walls, it has a good scanning depth and is simple to use.
Please note that this does not detect wood.

Great piece of kit

" Bought this after being disappointed with the Stanley stud sensor. The Bosch simply delivers, easy to use and very accurate for both for metal and electric current detection.
Detection depths are even better than the ones in the product description.
Not cheap, but worth the investment! "

not as good as i thought
19 Jan 2012
By truebuilder

" after reading a previous review i thought this would be a foolproof way to detect all wires, cables and pipes.......it isn't!
readings are erratic at best and non-existent at worst
live socket cables are detected ok and the ring glows red, and it bleeps, but it didn't detect a coaxial cable or even a live lighting cable even though both of these were shallow and uncapped. more frustratingly another pass over the lighting cable got a very small response, easily missed the first time. the inconsistency is worrying.
the depth gauge is pointless and doesn't work
so really although it is better than no detector at all i really wouldn't recommend it because it just cannot be trusted 100%. maybe all detectors are like this but when you have to resort to the old method of chopping out along the cable's length then you know this bit of kit isn't wort the £50 price tag
will return for a refund asap "
