Rated 3 out of 5 by from Has its limitations I bought this out of interest and used it on a few jobs over the past couple of months. It's an electrostatic detector very similar the wire and pipe finders of old that ran off 9v batteries. I like the design and ease of use but I think it implies more functionality than there really is here. I did find that it was reliable in finding wires in solid walls but only up to 5-6mm into plaster. In stud walls it will really struggle to give you any reading. It was successful in finding metallic pipes but not so much plastic ones. I had mixed results with stud finding. For any walls with insulated plasterboard or foil backed insulation like Celotex it was next to useless. Painted walls gave better results than with wallpaper, maybe due to static build up when you move the sensor over the wall. So in summary, it can be useful as a first check indicator & I'll keep using it in future but I won't be relying on it.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Wish I had trusted the bad reviews ! I really should have trusted the bad reviews and saved my self 2 journeys to Tolostation. The stud finder seems to work ok. However the pipe and cable finder is absolutely crap. Doesn't detect AC even when placed directly on a switch or socket. Please do not waste your time and money. Believe the many bad reviews as they are accurate.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not sure Tried this on walls in my house, it couldn't find a stud anywhere, possibly that the plasterboard is too thick??

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Completely useless I bought this to locate studs and wires for several building projects. After finding the results a little suspect, I tried it on a new stud wall I was building, which had plaster only on one side so I could see where the joists and wires were located. The stud finder randomly buzzes about electrical cables when in the middle of a piece of plasterboard, fails to locate studs, and gives completely random and erroneous results. Might has well have come as a free toy in a box of cereal - completely and utterly useless and not reflective of Stanley's brand name at all!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Strong on electrics, not so much on studs Bought this to find studs and avoid and electrical wire before drilling into a wall. As per title, quite good on electrics but a bit disappointing on the studs. It does detect them but appears a bit hit and miss.
