abunda_amazon_reviews Serves its purpose, if you learn how to use it. Red projected arrow (its appearance and disappearance) DO NOT identify the stud location, at least in my case. Here is how it worked for me (confirmed through repetitive hole drilling so I know exactly when were my stud edges): As you move the device steadily over the wall, as soon as the sound and projected red arrow appear, this means that the stud leading edge lies approximately underneath the area between the "C" letter of the ZIRCON name, and black triangle above it. Maybe around this triangle vertex. See attached photo. The device seems unable to identify the trailing edge (where does the stud end). You should rotate it and scan backwards to identify the second edge, which will be the leading edge this time.;;Reviewed in the United States on August 16, 2016;;4.0 out of 5 stars;;Worked for me, but not exactly according to the manual or an intuitive way.;;Dmitriy from Fairfax;;;Works as expected every time.
