Things you should know: A stud should be 3 lights (1.5"), if you get more lights than this, it might NOT BE A STUD! Be careful! If you aren't sure, check with a thin nail or look at surroundings to see if it could be something else (electrical outlets, odd plumbing, etc)
5/5 stars because this IS the boss of all other stud finders. I think I've used about 6 different stud finders just hoping that one would be different and simple to use. Well this one IS different because it IS simple to use. Your wife, mom, even grandmother could use it without any difficulty. Franklin sensors really knew what they were doing and I know this review seems like other reviews, but hopefully the video demonstration helps you guys see how this works vs other sensors. If this review helps you, let me know!
My brother-in-law gave me a Franklin Sensors stud finder for Christmas this year. When I saw how many sensors it had I wondered why no one had thought of this before. Somewhat skeptical, I tried it out. It worked like a charm. It lights up right where the studs are.
Next time I visited my parents, I took my new stud finder over to show off my new toy. My dad and I tested it throughout the house. It worked on wood and metal studs. (We built the house so we knew what walls had wood or metal studs).
The hammer and finish nail approach works but if you aren't into fixing drywall just to hang a picture, I highly recommend the Franklin Sensors Stud Finder. Any other stud finder will just gather dust in my shop.
UPDATE 5/15/12 - I recently remodeled my kitchen and putting in new cabinets gave me the chance to put this stud finder to work. It was really helpful with finding studs and because of the many sensors, I could find and mark both edges of the stud.
There were a few times where I thought I was getting false readings. Once where I was putting in the sink cabinet but then I realized the stud finder detects density. I was getting a reading where I knew there wasn't a stud but I have copper vent pipes and it was right where I expected the vent pipe would be.
In another spot, it would light up like I had a stud but if I went above or below in the same area on the wall, it would not light up.Read more ›
Update.......August 22, 2016... after continual use for over 4 years it started giving odd readings after a drop from the ladder. I was trying to locate ceiling joist over a stippled ceiling. After a frustrating morning with an expensive replacement and then a borrowed Zircon, I ordered a new ProSensor from Amazon. It arrived in ONE day! The stippled ceiling really showed the superiority performance of the ProSensor to the competition.
Here's the good and the bad.
It found every stud on my open walls. I was very impressed and about to give it 5 stars and then I noticed that it gets tripped up when you have insulation in your walls. Of course there are many different types of insulation, and the kind that I found that really plays havoc on this stud finder is the insulation that has a foil backing on one side. The signal seems to get tricked and all the LED's light up, just like when you put foil in a microwave oven. Depending how close the foil is to your drywall, determines how accurate it will be under these conditions. Sometimes putting it in then same spot on the wall gives different readings. I was very disappointed to see this.
If you don't have the foil backing type of insulation used in your walls then you will probably be very happy with this stud finder. I can honestly say that it is the best stud finder I have ever tested, BUT if you have the type of insulation that has a foil backing, then this tool will help but may give occasional false readings. They should either cut the price in half, or add a sensitivity control to help with the insulation false reading problem.

This is the best stud finder I've ever used. I have owned several fairly high-end stud finders ($60 range), and this one blows them out of the water. No contest.Published 16 hours ago by ihateeverything
This is a very good stud finder, if, all you have are interior walls that are not insulated. My house has foil backed insulation which really throws it off. Read morePublished 1 day ago by Bill Phillips

Works great, only gripe is that you can't point it at yourself like other typical stud finders as a joke.Published 2 days ago by Ender
Love how it lights up. You are able to see exactly where the stud is so that you can hit it in the center. Even the boyfriend liked it....Published 4 days ago by trush
I am a DIY kind of guy and always stayed away from stud finders. Every time I would use one I would mark a stud come to find out I couldn't be father away from a stud. Read morePublished 6 days ago by jamie langella

Seams decent, haven't used much yet. Kind of big and bulky. You would think for $50 would come with battery, doesn't. Will add further review after I put it through the paces.Published 8 days ago by Amazon Customer
