Picks up wires then no wires this is extremely unreliable. Very disappointed in this product as its unusable.

Reliability issues and no instructions in English

For starters, on opening the sealed package, there’s a chunky user guide in many East European languages. No instructions in English at all. So had to download a guide online. Despite checking all the troubleshooting, there’s a reliability issue. You can get different readings on the same area of wall on different occasions. This leaves you wondering where the real live wires are located. You’re supposed to be able to get more accurate positions for metal and wires by continuously moving the device over the same area. All that does is give a mix of negative and positive results without any surity.

Avoid - completely unreliable

Don't waste your time or money with this product. Initial readings appeared to be incorrect so I followed instructions to manually recalibrate. The detector then "found" live wires in a wooden door and when within 20mm of any wall! Assuming user error, I recalibrated again, but with the same results. Will be returning tomorrow!

This is an invaluable product!

We bought this product as we were about to erect a handrail on our staircase wall, which had various switches and wall lights This product was invaluable in detecting hidden wiring in the wall, which enabled us to safely drill in the safe spots. I dread to think what could have happened if we had not used this excellent product!

This is an excellent tool, worth its weight in gold. It is so easy to use, and the price is extremely competitive when compared against other models. I felt really confident after I used the tool that there would be no horror shows when I drilled the wall
