Rated 1 out of 5 by from Awful product. Doesn't detect live wires. Doesn't detect wall studs, in fact it gives false positives. It's not only a waste of money but if you rely on it to detect anything it'll end up costing you more.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Negatives: Instructions hard to read On button in awkward position On button hard to keep depressed every time I let go of the on button it insisted on recalibrating itself sometimes I had to recalibrate it several times before it started reading properly Positives: Looks good...

Rated 1 out of 5 by from This finder am not easy to use, far from that. First, the manual is not clear, says about ON button and not show which is that button, you have to guess. Then you calibrate the thing, but because use the same ON button every time you want to use this device keep recalibrating, also to work you need to hold all the time that famous ON button. My advice is look for something else with better quality.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Rubbish. I don't think it's working... It rather looks like a piece of some weird useless art. Someone who put that in stock must have mixed up orders, as this one definitely should go to some class-b sci-fi movie.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Bought this to detect studs, metal and wires. Unfortunetely I could not get it to do any of these. In fact it takes some working out how to switch it on and when you do it is a case of trying to work out how it works because the instruction manual is about as useless as the device itself

Rated 1 out of 5 by from instruction manual is worse than useless. I have no confidence in this product which I bought for live wire detection. Complete waste of money. Maplin should really look at the consistency of these reviews and take this product off the market

Rated 1 out of 5 by from I tried to use this device twice once for electric and once for stud detection. It does NOT work. I tried several ways to calibrate the thing and tested on a wall where I knew the locations of the studs. It was locating thin air and missing studs. Not impressed had to use drywall plugs in the end and the job looked rubbish and took a lot longer. Try a stanley one.

Why does the light come on on one occasion but when taking the detector over the same pathh again it does not show a light? How often does it nead to be calibrated? How long can it be in continual use with the ON button pressed?
