Superb accuracy for an inexpensive tool.
I am always a bit sceptical about a product when its listed as Amazon's Choice, incase there's some vested interest. But on this occasion their recommendation was well warranted. Straight out of the box it's just so simple to use. On stud partition walls it detected the studs easily, and first time. It not only highlights the center of the studs but also the edges for precise positioning. I tested it on celing joists with similarly positive results. The battons between the joist are set deeper and were still detected in normal stud mode. But the deep mode returned much more detailed positioning of the battons. Detection of electrical cables was usually straightforward and is essential when trying to avoid disasters. If you experience detection of live cables over a wide area, you just need to place the scanner over an area with a high reading and recalibrate. This will reduce sensitivity to provide a higher degree of accuracy in those situations. You should remember that the cables must be live in order to be detected. Some of my central heating pipes are in the concrete flooring and I had some doubts whether they would be detected. But the Metal scan mode made light work of it. In this price range I don't beleive you will find a more comprehensive and capable scanner. Just a good all round performer.
It does what it says it'll do and finds objects, studs, wires etc... behind a wall. However it's not the most accurate detector on the market. It doesn't give you a 100% line up of where things are end to end. Only really that you're on top of it. And with wires it's very sensitive to active currents meaning it picks things up when it's within about 50cm rather than when its just right over it. Overall it's good and gives you an idea of what's where but if you're a tradesman and need to use a detector for precise drilling and cutting then get something a bit more expensive that does a better job for that.
Handy and Simple bit of kit for an amateur, at a great price
I am always nervous of drilling into walls, and keep telling myself to " get a wall scanner". I spotted this one when doing my Christmas Amazon shopping and at under £20 ,I bit the bullet and bought it. The instructions are clear and it is really simple to use , just insert the battery ( included, a welcome change for cheaper items!) and off I went. It fits well in the palm of your hand : compact enough to be comfortable but big enough to be able to read the screen clearly. I tested it by running it over an area where I knew there were electrical components and I got a loud beep and warning symbol - that's good enough for me. ! For occasional use just for DIY, no need for an expensive " bells and whistles" gizmo.

I needed this to replace my very old meter that had done great service every time my caravan moved
This arrived promptly. I needed this to replace my very old meter that had done great service every time my caravan moved. These things are a delicate instruments and require care when in use, using the usual amount of care, I found Astra 29 East quickly enough and I am happy with the performance. Some folks will not be able to use this due to a lack of patience but anyone with a little intelligence and patience should not have serious problems. Perhaps its worth mentioning that Astra 19 gives a very strong signal, from there I can traverse east for 9 degrees and also reduce the elevation. Works for me! How much can you expect for a tenner!
Fixed my Sky Q dish in minutes!
Having an extension and the builders moved my dish resulting in no signal. Sky couldn't come out for 3 weeks, local satellite quotes ranged from £60 to £100 to re-align the dish. Decided to give this a go. Attached it in minutes, just screw the cable onto each end of the meter (i knew the general direction i needed to point the dish after a googling it) and simply moved the dish slowly until the meter went crazy, I left it hooked up whilst I went in and restarted the Sky Q box and it's back on with good signal.. I have had to do this 3 times now in so many days as the builder needs to move my dish daily, each time it has worked and re-aligned my dish in under 5 minutes. Excellent buy.
after being quoted £150 plus vat to put up a satellite dish I decided to do it myself.bought dish and brackets for £25 with cable.then invested in a csl sat finder for £9.50.this little unit is fantastic.took 1 minute to read instructions which were very easy.after about an hour system was installed.didnt need sat box as its built into the tv.sat finder found satellite straight away and I moved the dish until sat finder displayed nearly 10 and I pick up 200 free channels and some in hd.saving of around £145.if you have this sat finder and a drill you can do it easily.its not hard as the rip off merchants try and tell you.
