Within 30 days, another color failed.

Best use of the product would be in The Landfil with all the rest of them and I believe Brookstone would agree.

Cannot find a TV remote control when it's 2 feet away under a pillow.

As of this writing, this product either gets a raving 5-star review or a dismal 1-star review. Hmmm... that's gotta make you wonder... Well, my personal experiences with this thing is very much in line with the reviewers who have given it a 1-star rating.

I had trouble with two of the receivers right out of the box. One of them did not respond to the transmitter and the other gave off a faint sound that was barely audible from a few feet away. As for the remaining two "functioning" units, I doubt they're anywhere near the 85-decibel alarm touted by the manufacturer. I took mine to a brick and mortar Brookestone store and exchanged it for another unit, which I tested at the store to make sure that it was working. Strike one.

I was thrilled at first thinking that "Yes!! At last! No more lost keys or remotes!" Wrong! My joy was short-lived because a month after exchanging the Key Locator, the response from all the receivers became sporadic. As Murphy's law would have it, it failed to function right when I needed it most. Infuriating! Strike two.

Periodically, the receiver attached to my keychain would spontaneously beep - not something you want it doing at inopportune moments and I'm speaking as one who's had to endure some embarrassment because of this little malfunction. Strike three!

That's when I gave up on it entirely. By then, the warranty had run out and I was unable to return it. Recently, I discovered that all the units had ceased functioning altogether.

I found another key locator called loc8tor (sold here at Amazon) which has earned a place in Time Magazine's Best Inventions for 2006. Somehow, it hadn't turned up on Amazon's search engine when I searched for "Key Finder". But if you use "loc8tor" as the search string, it will show up.

I reviewed this item under a nearly identical title, so check that one as well.

I had a keyfinder from a california company, which I think is now called the keyfinder. But it was $25 or $30 for just one, and the sound was very strange...sort of a high, odd pitch. It sometimes took me a long time to find the keys.

So, when I saw this, I thought it would be an upgrade.

Mistake one...I attached all the "ringers" to the items BEFORE I really fully tested the device. One color NEVER worked. But, since I had already attached things to various devices (and it is HARD to get them off...I still have the dead ringer on the back of my cell phone), I decided not to take it back. 3/4 colors working was still okay, I figured.

Within 30 days, another color failed. Within another month or so, all colors were dead. I tried replacing ALL the batteries, very carefully. No luck.

Unless this thing has increased its warranty (and you can take it back into a brick and mortar Brookstone for a FULL refund without a receipt, or at least get full credit without a receipt), it is NOT worth it. My recollection is that it only had a 30 day warranty when I bought it.

I actually regret not making a bigger stink about this at the time it failed, but I figured I would just not shop at Brookstone again.

There ARE good keyfinders out there...don't give up.

This thing plain does not work. the first day we opened the box they worked as long as we were within 6 inches of the lost keys or remote control, but by the next day they didn't work at all. If we fiddled with them for an hour we could get them to work temporarily but a couple hours later they didn't work again so when an item was actually lost this system was useless. I could have tried to resell them on amazon, but I would have felt too guilty selling such a worthless product, so I just threw it away.

I did my research on key locators because I wanted to get one that was effective enough to remedy my fiance's perpetual key-finding problem. This key finder worked the first few times sporadically and then, after less than a month, completely ceased to work.

I do not recommend that you purchase this product.

Initially it showed promise but failed miserably. It is absolutely a piece of junk. Amazon should stop selling it immediately.

I would not consider buying this product. Received this Smart Find Plus from my daughter for Christmas a few years ago. Should have returned it to Brookstone immediately and got a refund of $60. It worked inconsistantly and than did not work at all with any of the remotes. The remotes for the tv remote controls were attached so well that you cannot remove them without breaking them. How this product made it through quality control, does not say much for Brookstone and their products. Called Brookstone today, and they were of no help what so ever. I thought maybe there was a simple fix until I read the reviews of those with identical experiences. Best use of the product would be in The Landfil with all the rest of them and I believe Brookstone would agree.
