Stud Sensor - Edge Detection - 3/4" - Red/Black is rated 3.6 out of 5 by 94.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Craftsman Stud Finder This one is basic, and having used it to check for studs, is quite accurate. The tone is loud, and that's a good thing when there is construction work going on around me. I like the red color, because it stands out in my tool bag for an easy grab and it is super light weight. If you're looking for a low priced stud finder (metal and wood), this one will work just fine. The only reason it got 4 stars is because it does not alert to possible electrical wires. There are some jobs that require that feature to ensure my safety. It uses a 9 volt battery. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 3 out of 5 by from It works, sort of..... I was installing flush mount fluorescent lights in my garage and I needed to locate the joists, and the reviews for this item were decent, so I picked one up. Like most low cost stud finders, you have to fiddle with it a bit to get a good reading, or to get it to read at all. For whatever reason, this thing found the edges of wall studs no problem, but no matter what I did, I could not get it to locate ceiling joists. I ended up using a magnetic stud finder. I wasn't going to spend a lot on an item I'll rarely use, but I probably should've spent a little more on something else. I'll keep it. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 4 out of 5 by from good tool for the price Unit works as described. It does a good job locating the edge of a stud or header. It cannot tell the difference between a 2X4 stud and an electrical cable . The unit needs a 9 volt battery that is NOT included. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Works but annoying power design Pros: - About $10 cheaper than other stud finders. - Does find studs - Has a notch at top useful for marking the edge of the stud with pencil. Cons - Requires you to hold in the power button the entire time. If you accidentally slip your finger off, it resets and will beep when turned back on and calibrating. In other words, you could get some false positives if your not careful to keep the button pushed in. Best to find a couple of adjacent studs which will likely be 16" apart on center. - No function to find hot wires. - Most other stud finders can go 1.5" deep, though 0.75" isn't a problem with most drywall. - It's got pads on the back face but VERY thin. It still makes a sound like it's scraping the wall. Conclusion: It works. But since you will likely only require 1 stud finder in your life, for $10 more, why not get one that will work better and doesn't require you to hold the button in the entire time?

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Waste of Time Purchased this based on the overall good ratings and I could not be more unimpressed. I used fresh batteries and followed the instructions. To my amazement, if I went over an area searching for a stud, the device would beep in different areas of 1-3 inches different from previous measurements. I have used a more expensive stud finder before so I know how to read edges but this device was just wrong every time. Save your money and buy a better quality one.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from got the job done sometimes it needed to be calibrated a few times before getting it to work but it was always right about where the stud was and calibration is a breeze. good for the money. saved me alot of holes in my wall [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 1 out of 5 by from A Very Evil Stud Finder Perhaps we received a faulty one, but this thing was VERY inconsistent at finding studs and frustrating to work with. We recently had our room drywalled and know that there are studs approximately every 16 inches. This thing found maybe 5 out of 30 studs, all while making the irritating beep sound and dragging gray lines on our white walls with it's soft black feet. We went old school and resorted to knocking to find all of the studs in the room. Useless! [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Useful but with some limitations I got this stuf finder because I was still using one of those little magnetic ones to find studs, and that was very tedious. This Craftsman Stud Sensor is a big improvement on that old one! But it is also not as good as others I have used for reasons listed below. First, it requires a 9-volt (rectangular) battery, and it’s difficult to install and/or remove without damaging the wiring behind the battery cap. Second, it does a great job of detecting wooden studs (no need to pass over a drywall nailhead!), but it can’t tell the difference between a stud and an electric wire or water pipe, so you have to be very careful when you drill into what you think is a stud behind he drywall. I have used other sensors that do tell you the difference. Now, this one does sense the edge of the stud, so you can then come at the stud from the other direction and, when you see that it senses the other stud edge 1.5" in the other direction, then you can be pretty confident that you are dealing with a wooden 2x4 stud rather than a power line or water supply or drain pipe. So these are two things that make this sensor less than ideal. On the good side, the sensor works and can detect things behind walls up to ¾" thick, which is pretty good. It seems to me it takes a couple of passes to get really good at sensing the studs, but once it’s sensing, it does so consistently. And it is well designed to help you mark the stud edges and then find the center of the stud for drilling. The sensor has thin pads of synthetic felt on the wall side of the sensor so that you don’t scratch the wall with the sensor itself, but the sensor only works in this mode if the wall is smooth. To make it work on a rougher surface, the instructions say that you need to put some pasteboard between the sensor and the wall, then turn on the sensor with your thumb so that it can calibrate the depth and also begin to read. while holding the "on" button down with your thumb, you need to hold the cardboard in place with your remaining fingers while sliding the sensor back and forth on the rough wall, and the directions advise keeping the other hand away from the sensor to avoid interference and thus inaccuracy. Trust me, this one-handed operation is not ideal. The cardboard doesn’t want to slide in both directions easily, and you have to remove it to mark your spot (unless you want to trim the pasteboard very precisely to expose the top of the sensor where you mark your wall). So, bottom line: an improvement over trraditional magnetic stud finders, but not as safe as more expensive sensors that can "see" wood vs. wires vs. pipes behind the drywall. A bit awkward to use on rough surfaces, but experience using it overcomes some of these limitations. I’d recommend a redesign using button batteries or AAA batteries rather than 9-volt batteries.
