Zircon informed me that the i700 is being discontinued because its two part construction is not robust enough. The i520 has the same functionality minus the wall marker. NOTE: you should watch the video on the Zircon site to see how to correctly use the i520 or you will think its not working very well.

A triumph of form over function ! When scanning a p/board wall the scanner was very inconsistent in finding edges of studding (approx. location of studding known to me). The display often didn't fade away to a blank screen properly so screen had to be viewed dead square on to assess the display. I also got many false readings for ac current being present (I know for certain no power cables are behind the wall because I helped my Father-in-Law put the wall up many years ago). I got so many negative results when I knew a stud was present, that I had to give up on the job. A great shame as the conception, robustness and instruction dvd made me think I had found the answer to stud location problems. I've returned the scanner to Amazon for a refund.

only used a couple of times as yet, electric scan works well,
however locating studs was a bit hit and miss .
As i have stated above this might be my lack of experience or understanding .

I recently bought one of these and it would not work-despite battery level showing good. After an e-mail to Zircon, I was informed that this will only work with a brand new battery! due to the way it operates. Replacing the battery, it worked brilliantly-so WHY was this not mentioned in the leaflet with the unit as it is quite an important issue? I have fed this back to Zircon and hopefully this will help others who are experiencing similar problems. For an item of this quality and price there should not be anything left to guess work. Thus the 4 stars.

after reading various feedback on scanners i was a bit worried if this would be effective but it sounded like it was worth spending more to get a decent one .....and it was. Needed to find studs for a shelf for heavy books and this scanner was 100% found the stubs easily and even found the center lines. the shelf is up and holding heavy books so it was a great success and worth spending a bit more
have not tried it for power cables so cant comment on that

It's easy to get started with and can give good results but then on some other walls of same construction where i knew there was a live wire it didn't pick up anything. Probably best not to take results literally but with some common sense. The one job i needed it for didn't give me definite results so i was wary and played safe since i was putting up shelves near a live wire.

Arrived quickly,but no instruction DVD. Works well finding studs,but useless for finding electrical cables or metal pipes in stud walls unless they are directly fixed to the back of the plasterboard. I guess would be ok on a standard plastered wall

Very difficult to locate joists and generally no accurate indications. Used it on a ceiling, which finally I was obliged to open-up and see what is behind the plasterboard. In my opinion this tool can only be used as a very rough indicator.

read the instructions carefully and the multiscanner works OK. Not as accurate as I would have liked but two or three passes should locate studs with reasonable confidence. Not tried the deep scanning so far.

Its very good and easy to handle. Not so easy when working over your head. That's probably the only time an ON/OFF switch would have been good.
I would recommend it to anyone.
