Just bought this to do the job it’s supposed to do and totally disappointed, absolutely not either precise or reliable, useless piece of kit, wouldn’t recommend at all. Wouldn’t even rate the one star I’ve given it.

Very inconsistent, even when the calibration routine in the instructions is followed. Readings change with applied pressure, even when not moving the sensor over the wall. Generally random and inconsistent results. It is extremely disappointing that B&Q sell this item; I would have expected better.

If I could give it minus 5 stars I would ...
Believe the other reviews - you may as well just punch holes in the wall blindfolded than waste you time and money on this piece of complete and utter garbage!!!!
DO NOT BUY !!!!
Absolutely awful piece of kit

Cannot fully explain how bad this is, and before anyone says; yes I calibrated it correctly.
If you hold it against a live wall with literally one finger on the front it beeps like crazy, but as soon as you hold it with two fingers (away from the sensor too like you’re supposed to) it all of a sudden reads like it is safe. Good logic?!
I’ll be returning mine tomorrow, 5 year guarantee with it if it even lasts 5 years...

I can only assume people giving bad reviews arent using this properly, this has detected everything to the mm and has been helpful for drilling holes once in a newly decorated bedroom to allow us to put up shelves and a curtain pole. Saved a lot of time and guess work. Worth its money.
