Fakespot gives it an A but the reviews still sound super sketchy. Would be good if anyone can give their personal experience with it, I've had horrible luck with stud finders.

There is only 1, and I repeat, only 1 stud finder you should ever use. Franklin Sensors. Period.

Here it is (not on sale): https://www.amazon.com/Franklin-S...B0195K8OT4

Lately it is hard to believe Amazon reviews especially products sold by new/unknown companies.

Thanks for your suggestion.
Even though it is for some minor home project, I better get a reliable brand like Franklin, rather than changing every few years.

I don't think this is any good. For a few more bucks just get this Franklin one. Works every time and is accurate. https://smile.amazon.com/dp/B071LF2BRY
The other guy linked another Franklin one, but that is double the cost. For DIY, this is just fine.

Agreed. I've used these for years and they are absolutely awesome. You can also get them from:

BJs in blue [bjs.com] or orange [bjs.com]

Costco [costco.com]

I got one from Costco few years and have been using it without any issue.
I got similar to this product from Ama\zon a few months back and compare it with Costco, they both are accurate on most of the places, but sometime Costco doesn't show stud and this one did and sometimes this one didn't and Costco did.

My son is an architect. This is far more like the one he uses than the ones others wrote about.

For most people the cheap one with powerful magnets should find the nails or screws that attach the wallboard to the wall. Enough for normal work.

However they will not find the electrical wiring. They are only as accurate as were the nails or screws screwed in.

I do not know about this particular one. The one he used detected the actual wood not just the nails or screws and worked very well. It was also very good at finding the electrical wires.

Edit: The video on the third review makes it look like it is very effective. Looks very similar though not quite as good as the one my son used.

I do not remember. He lives two hours away. His was definitely better. But it was most likely far more expensive. He has a lot of great tools of course.
