" I found this to be hit and miss. Some studs which it found, turned out to be hollow plasterboard. It missed others, which were clearly shown by a line of nail heads on the board.
Ended up using the "tap the wall" test to support its findings!!

" I wish I had read these reviews before ordering one of these. The product does Screwfix no favours and they should consider withdrawing it from the catalogue.
Can't add anything to the previous comments - it detects cables a metre away in the roof space rather than the wall; it detects studs totally at random. "

Do not buy

" I have never been a fan of these but I required one to find some joists.
Do not buy this product it does not work and I am returning it back to screwfix, which I am sure will not be a problem.
It flashes electrical currents in walls were the are no ac currents and apparently the stud wall which we have just built is constructed from solid timber.
This product should be recalled by Stanley, useless. "

" In short; IT DOES NOT WORK. Totally unreliable and inconsistent. Both the stud sensor and the electric current detector are useless and totally unfit for purpose.
Have decided to fork out some extra cash and went for the Bosch....much, much better "

" I bought this to find studs when cladding damaged walls with new plasterboard.
In short it doesnt work. Even on just 9mm of board, It gives false readings when no studs exist and gives no readings when studs are there. You would be better off using a mars bar !
It went back the next day!
I have given it 5 stars for reliability as it was consistently rubbish. "
