Amazing Tool

" Moving to a new house and thought that I do not know where anything might be in the walls. Tested it and found it amazingly accurate in finding electric wires piping or nails.
A definite must have.

Not cheap but effective

" Used this to sort out drilling in a bathroom with metal stud walls containing cables and pipework.
After a bit of practice in an area where I knew the layout enabled me to drill with confidence. Well done Bosch

Expensive mistake

" This scanner is hit and miss and not as good as YouTube review videos would lead you to believe.
As a professional Joiner / Carpenter I expected a lot more from the Bosch brand, however considering the price it's better aimed at the DIY user thinking they are buying professional kit! "

Rubbish but may be defective
9 Sep 2014
By LRobinsBuilders

" Bought this on recommendation,found it to be hopeless permanently detected electric cable even where there was none,then failed to pick up live cables right under it,also couldn't find studs In a stud wall but detected every drywall screw in the entire wall which meant it never stopped beeping!
Returned it the same day,screwfix to there credit refunded me no questions asked.
I think I had a lemon and it needed to be re calibrated but this has put me off buying another.
