Black & Decker Stud & Metal Sensor is rated 3.0 out of 5 by 1.
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Ok product if used correctly. I've used a couple of these B&D laser levels and they work fine if used the correct way. I'm a contractor and I see the stud finder often misused by professionals. The tool needs to be placed against the wall in a location where you KNOW there's no stud, THEN press and hold the button, once the stud finder is silent (some have an initial "tone" or beep to let you know it's on and sensing for studs) and the little light is on you can then slide it along the wall in your desired location. The tool CAN'T come off the wall. Once you break contact with the wall you HAVE TO let off the button and go back to step one in a location you know there's no stud. If you place it on a stud to start with and THEN press the button then the tool will read THAT as normal density and search for places MORE dense then your 2X4..........like maybe a brick fireplace for example. At any rate the model BDL190S is more accurate and easier to use. All, however will require that you depress the "start" button in a studless location. But the BDL190S sensor reads increasing density so you know when your getting close to the stud as well as easily find the center of it. The laser on the 190S is easier to use too.
