From the Manufacturer
VideoScanner will save you time and money by eliminating guesswork, rework, needless holes, and costly broken drill bits and saw blades. It will precisely locate wood, metal studs, joists, pipes, conduit, or rebar while continuously detecting the presence of hot electrical wires. Three selectable modes ensure precision: normal, DeepScan, and metal. The DeepScan technology penetrates concrete, plywood, drywall, paneling, and flooring. Metal detection mode helps you find heating and plumbing pipes, inner-wall exhaust vents, and ducting.

As the other writer pointed out, the switch on this thing is terrible. It is too sensitive. Also, you can't put this in your tool apron because the switch kicks on everytime it bumps something (even slightly) in there. This causes that annoying error tone.
Finally, it is simply not accurate. When I first got it, I tested it. It didn't find studs where I knew there was one and it said there was one when I knew there wasn't. I don't trust it's accuracy at all and I might as well throw it in the garbage because I don't use this one anymore. I bought a different one and am much happier.
1. It is only accurate on single layer drywall covering wood frame construction with either no insulation, or batt insulation that does not have a foil face.
2. It does not work on surfaces such as lath & plaster, button board, or covered shear walls. (Surfaces that are present in most homes build pre 1960)
3. It appears too sensitive when locating electrical current in walls. This problem makes it impossible to locate studs if they are within a foot or so of electrical current, because the electrical 'alarm' beeps until reset.
Definately NOT a buy!
This tool picked out every wall stud in my living room, den, and kitchen in minutes without needing to use the deep search feature. The regular scanning feature clearly delineated the ceiling studs through deep texturing.
Try that with a magnet or pounding on walls! At [the price], what are you waiting for?
The instructions are clear and helpful. Per the instructions: if the unit flashes and beeps repeatedly, relocate and start scanning again. Simple and efficient.
