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. Then I remembered that I patched a hole in the Sheetrock there and have a small piece of 2x4 in the wall to screw the patch to.
This Stud Finder exceeded my expectations. You still have to use your brain so you don't end up putting a screw in a vent pipe but I am happy with the ProSensor 710.
I think it would be nice to have a way to keep it on. The button works but sometimes it's awkward to hold it down. If there was a button but also a way to lock it down, I think that would be great.
As I said mine worked great at first, but when I just pulled it out of the drawer for a recent project it gave me the same erroneous readings my dads did. I ended up having to use the magnet trick to find nail heads to complete my project. I always store this thing indoors, in a dry environment and I always remove the batteries when stored for more than a few days.
Pretty bummed considering what I paid for them and now I just can't trust the thing.
With my project list growing and my knuckles getting sore from looking for studs that way, I decided to try one more time with the Franklin ProSensor. All I can say is 'wow... finally' - this thing is 4 for 4 so far on finding studs. I even tried it on the same wall that my previous finders had so much problem with and it nailed it every time. One time a couple extra lights fluttered, but I scanned it again and got the three lights I was looking for. Finally, one that works!
This one won't tell you if it's metal or wood. It doesn't beep when it senses electric in the wall. It doesn't scream "Edge!" at you when it thinks it's found an edge. It will tell you right where a stud is though, and that's what I want in a stud finder. Put your mark on the middle of the three lights you should have showing, and that should be center.
