Rated 3 out of 5 by from Stanley stud sensor A little hard to understand how to use and to pinpoint the places of cables as that's what I brought it for but after I got the hang of it and it works very well 9v battery not included so that was another £5 I think

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Do not buy this if you want to find wooden studs. It is utterly useless. I bought this to find wooden studs in a plasterboard wall. It found them, I drilled in to nothing but plaster board, no stud. Total waste of money.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Basically unusable This is one of the worst product I have ever bought: - The calibration process simply doesn't work. The unit will tell you that ether the entire wall is electrified or that none of it is. - The manual is worse than useless - just a collection of meaningless pictures (literally no words in it) - As a minor point, it is uncomfortable to hold. Save yourself 40 quid and buy a blindfold and pencil instead. You will be no worse off than if you used this tool.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Very, very poor. I have a stud and cable detector which is about fifteen years old and decided to replace it with what should have been something very much better. I feel that this product is almost a complete waste of time and money. I have persevered with it and agree that you do have to learn a technique to get results from it. I still have no confidence in this tool and always use my ancient detector which consistently produces a better result. I would never recommend this product to anyone. B&Q should in my opinion refuse to stock it.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Returned it! We bought this as it was the only one in store that detected pipes as well electrics. All it did was squeal and turn off. Instructions were poor so we watched the video and it looked so simple to use yet ours didn't do anything like what the video showed. Absolutely awful so returned it for a refund.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Beware! I bought this to replace a cheap no-name stud detector that I had had for 25 years or more. Unfortunately, not using it frequently, the batteries got left in and leaked. I bought a Stanley because I considered it a good make. I was very disappointed. It failed to locate studs reliably and reported electricity continuously. I returned the unit and got a refund.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Waste of money Seems to change its mind every time I use it, don't trust it and a total waste of money and effort

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not to the normal standard Bought this as I trust the Stanley Brand, however, this product did'nt live up to the reputation. Tried locating wiring / pipes in a new home but the FatMax would go off randomly when testing it on walls. Tested above wall sockets but never beeped so can't trust it in areas I can't get too. B&Q refunded without issue.
