Rated 4 out of 5 by from Pipe finding made easy So far only used for one job so far so I have given it a medium score for reliability so far. As to the product itself it is so simple to use even I mastered it in minutes. The easy to read display tells you clearly when you are nearing and centralised over either metals or electrical cables. These are separate settings and there is also one for wood i.e battens in walls.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from rubbish finding wooden studs these will do everything other than detect a simple wooden stud, far too much tech for for simple use. most joiners want to quickly find a wooden stud but this fails 80% of the time.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Disappointed in Scanner Usually impressed with Bosh Pro series products so didn't hesitate to purchase this to replace a cheep chinese scanner I had. However this one unfortunately I can't recommend, I tested it on known live cable that was covered by bit of thin plastic trunk and toped with plaster no more than 1.5cm total but was unable detect live cable. I think for price and range at which the pro series is aimed at it should have picked this up easily as product description clearly states depth of up to 12cm not mm and 1.5cm is hardly anything. It operated fine over switch/socket or live cables just didn't appear to operate up to depth stated. Return and service with Screwfix was flawless as usual!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Superb tool I have seen so many bad reviews for this product and honestly can’t see why? I bought one recently for a spot light installation, it picked up every beam and cable savings me hours. Obviously it won’t pick up cables or pipes buried deep in walls but 50mm or so it will detect no problem.

Will this indicate any holes in a wall, covered by render

Have a 15th century property with holes in the wall, possibly for putting wooden posts in. There are probably others that have been covered with kind render and would like to find them

Re Bosch GSM120. Confused by conflicting info, 1) Can it detect wooden studs, spec states yes but answer to a question states no. 2) can it detect through plaster, as opposed to plasterboard, spec yes, one review says no.

Asked by: BCeng
Hi BCeng, we are sorry for the confusion that has been created and thank you for signalling it. To answer your question, yes the GSM120 is capable of detecting through both wood and plaster. Thanks, Bosch.
