Flakey
First thing I noticed -- no switch. It sits on my desk and randomly beeps for 3-4 seconds. It sensed where I knew there was AC. But I wouldn't trust using it if it was critical that I know when it was safe to work on a circuit. Thus it is useless.

Hubby misplaced his tester and needed one asap!

Works perfectly! Doesn't have an on/off switch but overall a good product.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Nice product.

This is handy for quickly telling if a line or outlet has power in it. I use mine regularly, but it seems to act up sometimes and it starts beeping while in my tool belt when it is not close to any source of power. If it keeps acting up I will just take it back for another one before the warranty expires.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Light doesn't work as indicator is exposed to AC current. Dangerous!

AC detector did not work as described. Drove 35 mins to Sears for this item. Opened package, inserted new batteries and tested this product. Detector gave low volume beeping but failed to provide blinking light. Paper insert advises consumer to call 1-888-326-1006 for assistance instead of returning meter to store. Called number, described problem and was instructed to return item to store!! Two 35 min trips to Sears will cost me more than meter is worth. What a waste of time on my part and waste of customer service resources for Sears.

life saver

I cannot begin to tell anyone how many times my life was saved by this device, being able to double check if the power is live is handy and saves lives

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Ok tester, battery sucks, no on or off switch

I do appl. repair, good for quick check for 110 volt circuits, easy to carry. Battery life sucks no on or off switch, battery hard to change have to force off cap. When it works does ok. Have a Green Lee, bought at Sears, at least turns off to save battery.

Cheap and Very Effective

I wish there was an on/off switch to save battery life, although I have had mine for a couple months and the battery still is good.  This could save your life during remodeling projects to help determine if the lines are hot or not as you never know how a house has been wired prior to your arrival.
