This little gadget detects wood, metal, and live wires buried up to 1-1/2 inches deep, alerting the user with both an audio and liquid crystal display warning. It can tell the difference between wood, metal, and live wires, no matter what the surface material: drywall, tile, plaster, you name it. It calibrates automatically, too, whether you're using standard or deep-read mode. The display is crisp and very easy to read; the unit is compact and lightweight and runs on 9-volt batteries. Before biting into a wall with a reciprocating saw, check it first with the IntelliSensor. --Kris Jensen-Van Heste

The Stanley IntelliSensor Digiscan Stud Sensor detects and differentiates between wood, metal and live wires simultaneously through drywall, tile, plaster and other common wall materials. Using both an audio alert and an easy-to-read LCD display for visual detection, this sensor helps you quickly and accurately locate stud and joist edges and center positions. This digiscan locates wood studs and live AC wires in both 3/-4 inch standard and 1-1/2-inch deep-read modes; automatic calibration occurs in both modes. Made with a heavy-duty ABS construction for durability and featuring a convenient pencil notch at the top for marking stud edges, this sensor is also ergonomically designed to fit comfortably in the hand. This tool runs on a 9-Volt alkaline battery (not included) and has an automatic shut-off to save power. This product is backed by a limited lifetime warranty.

I regret buying this sensor. The on/off switch gets bumped in a tool belt or box, which starts it beeping, and the only way to keep it from turning on is to pull the battery. The LCD screen is hard to read except from straight on, or in poor light. Although it beeps and shows different icons, it does not discriminate well, and does not pick up edges well. It is bulky and awkward to use on a jobsite. Spend your money on something else.

This stud finder is worthless for finding studs. In my 1926-built house, it finds studs everywhere! The darn thing never shuts up as it beeps away telling me "Eureka! I found a stud." NOT! It does work for the wiring but I bought it as a stud finder. So far I've bought three stud finders, all of them duds. Even on a brand new wall which I know had studs every 16" it still claimed to find them all across the 22' wall.

I agree with the other reviewers that this product is useless. Don't buy it. It constantly beeps where there are no studs, which can lead to your hanging a heavy item where there are no studs.
