Essential tool for worry-free drilling,
This review is from: Bosch PMD 7 Digital Detector (DIY & Tools)
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
I used to own an 'other brand' detector like this, but the build quality was poor, the device gave many false positives and didn't last.
This Bosch leaves me few such worries, particularly in build quality, as the device is extremely solid. It's easy to use (just insert batteries, slide the one switch, wait for the ready light, and hold the sensor area on the back up against the wall).
A red light shows the presence of metal in the wall, a red flashing light a current. Yellow is a maybe, and green is safe. I wanted to hang a picture near the main fuse box, but doubt I would have risked it without the reassurance of the detector as to where was safe. It does seem to give a few false positives, but not as much as the older device I tried, and I would much rather have the sensitivity of the device give a few false positives, than false negatives.
