I tried this on my walls. It seems to be very easy to use. I will be moving soon and want to be able to identify studs for hanging purposes. I am anticipating an easy time hanging shelves and art on my new walls.

The product seems to work ok, but because it does so many things, it can be confusing to use. We had to read the directions several times to figure out the way to find a stud. Supposed to be able to locate pipes and electrical wires, but it is hard to tell if you are locating pipes or studs. You also have to be sure you do not start on a stud or it will throw off the calculations.
I received this scanner as a gift. I have used it a few times already and it works great. Finds the stud every time. I had used a different one before but this is a major improvement. Another great tool from craftsman!
Our son just bought a condo, and he had lots of pictures to hang. To be sure he gets them securely and safely hung, we got him this stud finder.

Needed this for a desk building project and ordered it for store pick up. It was quickly available when I went to the store and even came with the battery installed. does as described and with any stud finder, i would suggest a little patience when using moving the tool to find studs. The LED light is nice to have to make your marks.

I got this for some specific projects. It usually can find the studs (although sometimes is seems like there is a constantly moving stud pack inside the wall). The instructions could be a little easier to read. Not so good on extra thick walls.

I bought the lower priced version from Craftsman without the deep scan option and it nevered worked out of the box. This version, on the other hand, worked like a charm as described.
