Rated 4 out of 5 by from Office move, life saver. Moving into a new office, always a chore to find the studs to hang TV's. Worked even through ply backed plasterboard, and alerted us to a rogue lighting cable loop.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Huge waste of money. This 3 function tool fails on all 3 functions. The LCD display is invisible when the tool is raised above eye level. The stud detector is very uncertain and the live wire function over-rides all other functions. Hard pads on face of detector left marks on emulsion wall. I tried to master it for 4 days then took it back for a refund. BOSCH should rethink the whole thing.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Awful As a keen DIYer in a new house I thought this would save me lots of time locating studs and existing wires/pipes. It, however, cost me lots of time as it gives so many false positive readings I had to check with more conventionaly methods anyway. When it failed to find a live wire that I knew was there it immediately became an expensive paperweight. Waste of money.

Will this detect ethernet or telephone cable?

Asked by: ROGERQDC
Hi, thanks for your question. Generally these types of cable will not be detected, they will not have a strong enough current to register as live wires and will not have enough metal content to show up in metal detection mode (which is intended for finding pipes, reinforcing steel or similar). If the ethernet or telephone cables were contained within a metal conduit however then this would show up in the normal metal detection mode.
