I've got one of these and it's a nightmare to use.

Well don't stop there, explain why!

I've just bought a similar looking orange one on eBay for £13..............wish I'd held on now!

Cold. Same price in my company shop.

My sister's onto her third one of these having taken the first two back as faulty.

I'd love to be able to tell you what's wrong with them, RR, but I honestly have no idea about these things :)

I've used this with no problems... Just needs an application of common sense... ;-)

I was waving it back and forth across my ceiling trying to set the sensitivity/calibrate it to the material in question but I couldn't get it to bleep in the same place twice. You know how you think you've found the electric cable and then you try again just to make sure and it doesn't bleep in the same place the next time?

It's one of those things where it doesn't have any controls as such, but it sets itself depending on how you pass it across the surface, what type of surface it is etc. So you end up switching it off then on again and starting from scratch.

I'm sure if you used one every day you'd become used to it but I'd prefer an old fashioned one like I had 20 years ago that just bleeped when it went over a bit of metal and didn't try to work out what type of metal it was, how many volts are going through it or what colour the wire was.

You weren't waving it at your head were you? It detects wood you know. :whistling:

They are not very good, I have one though not made by Stanley.

When I fixed a projector screen up into the ceiling through plasterboard, I used my stud sensor but it was way out. Scanning backwards and forwards, 10 holes in the ceiling later and getting nowhere, I ended up going into the attic and drilling the holes downwards instead. Quicker.

What they are good at is detecting frequency waves from ac mains and metal, like a mini metal detector.

I bought one of these two weeks ago. It failed to detect the 1000 volt cable in our wall and I drilled through it and died of electric shock. I'm now writing this post from beyond the grave and will soon be reaping my revenge on Mr Stanley!

Therefore voted COLD! ;-)

I feel vindicated. Seems pretty much only big_al_1983 can operate one of these. Perhaps the rest of us around the world just don't have common sense eh?

I love this site! Not so much for the bargains but for the comedy!:-D

Got one of these at B&Q today for £6.30 by asking for a pricematch.

And it works great......... well it does now I read the instructions, its not the type of thing you can use without reading up as you don't use it in the normal way.
