I was disappointed in the stud finder.

This device attempts to be a stud finder, metal finder and live-wire detector. It works best as a metal detector but you can't turn off the live-wire detector which is fooled by static electricty and gives so many false positives you don't know what you have in the wall.

I recently tried to find the position of studs in an exterior wall of a new home with sheetrock and vinyl siding. In the metal mode I got a rough idea (looking for nails or screws) but it seemed to identify more studs than existed and according to the readings I was sure there was a live-wire in there.

I then tried a Zircon stud finder that cost half as much as the Bosch and found less studs and those it found were in different positions than those indicated by the Bosch.

I cut into the wall and found the Zircon was correct and there was NO wires, live or otherwise. The Bosch showed the position of the studs off by 1-2 inches and indicated studs were there were none.

Despite the description of the DMD4 as a multi-detector, it really is a metal detector, and a superb one at that. It easily finds studs in plaster lath walls by detecting the nails. For me, this alone makes it a worthwhile tool. It also quite readily picks up pipes, and is a reasonably good a voltage detector.

In contrast, it's really not a good detector for wood studs behind drywall, precisely because it is so sensitive to metal. You have to first scan for metal, then scan for studs. To really identify the studs you have to use the detector to track along the drywall screws and then confirm that the spacing between these tracks matches common stud spacings. My little $40 Zircon is more useful for detecting wood studs in drywall because it is unrepsonsive to metal, so it will find the studs with a single quick measurement.

I think people might be having difficulty with this device because they are mainly trying to use it to find wood studs in drywall, a job for which there are better alternatives. On the other hand, as a detector of metal in wood and masonry it is a very useful and accurate tool.

I saw the DMD4K at a tool show at my local lumber yard. It was very impressive on the test board that the Bosch rep used to demonstrate it.

In a nearby booth showing a $5 magnetic stud finder (actually a nail or screw finder, to be precise) was a test panel made of 1/2" drywall on 2x3 studs. I borrowed the DMD4K and tried it out on the magnet guy's test panel but it couldn't find the studs. I asked the Bosch rep what I was doing wrong and he tried without success to find studs on that panel.

I bought a magnet.

I was disappointed in the stud finder. Using it on an outside wall that has foil backed insulation is a normal task. I found the finder's performance lacking.

I was installing safety handles in a marble shower, couldn't find the studs until I bought the Bosch. On the wood setting, I still couldn't find the studs through the stone and cement, but I did find every nail in every stud using the steel setting.

It looks great on paper but the A/C meter, as others have mentioned, gives a TON of false positives. I was using it on drywall to stay clear of plumbing and a/c wires. Used it for over an hour until I gave up. I will be returning it tomorrow.

I bought this to find wood studs in the wall. It is completely useless for that purpose. Also voltage. Pretty much the same as what everybody else says. Do not buy.
