    Very nice to use

    By texastutt

    from Brantford, ON, Canada

    Comments about Bosch Digital Wall Scanner:

    This unit lets me know what is behind the wall for the most part. I gave it a 4 star as it gave me very error readings on a drywalled home where I could not figure out what was behind the existing wall. This could have more to do with what was behind the wall rather than the unit. This unit will work with plaster but follow directions!

    Short learning curve

    By Mrfxit

    from Undisclosed

    Comments about Bosch Digital Wall Scanner:

    I have several "stud finders" that I have accumulated over time. None of them ever really exuded confidence to me that they were accurately detecting stud location. Forget confidence that I was actually driving a screw or nail close to the center of the stud. This new Bosch GMS120 eliminates the guesswork. In one situation I had the drywall open in a couple spots so was able to really see the accuracy of the center finder. It also quickly reports the presence of metal and electrical cables. I'm not an operators manual reader so I also liked the ease of use and quick learning curve of this device also.

          Hi Mike,

          Unfortunately, with reconditioned tools, it's uncertain whether or not the cases would be included.

          Yes, this can tell you if the studs are metal or would. It also detects live wiring and plumbing.

      New Vs. Reconditioned

      What's the difference between New and Factory-Reconditioned?

      Factory-Reconditioned products have been returned to the manufacturer and are restored to like-new operating condition; they go through a rigorous testing and inspection process. Plus, they offer a significant savings vs. new.
      • Reconditioned products may have minor cosmetic blemishes or scratches that do not affect item performance.
      • Reconditioned products may not come with all of the consumables the new version comes with (bits, sanding pads/papers, cases, etc.).
      • Both come with a manufacturer warranty and are covered by our Money Back Guarantee; New is 30 days, Reconditioned is 60 days.
