Bosch PMD7 Digital Detector is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 68.
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Dubious accuracy Lacks the ability to set a sensitivity search level to objects hidden behind wall and thus tends to indicate areas of risk that are well outside any zone with hidden cabling/pipes etc. Very sensitive to nails in studboard frames and usually indicates a 6" no-go radius around each nail head.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent product Needed to find studwork in order to mount bracket on wall - essential to get secure mounting due to weight, did job perfectly and was relatively simple to operate.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very Good Digital Detector Bought to help mount TV on wall and other wall mounting projects planned in near future. Not used yet but tested in a few areas that I know have pipes, metal and wires in wall and the detector was accurate and assured me that it will do the job. Much better than other detectors that I have used, some costing a lot more. Simple but effective so well pleased with purchase.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not impressed This thing lights up nearly everywhere on the wall. It shows alerts on surfaces that I know are wire & metal free. I'll try it again but I can see this being returned.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Simple & Easy to Use Feels solid & well made. A comprehensive printed manual included. Simple to use & works well. My only niggle is the packaging that needs a craft knife to get it open & then the pack is pretty useless for storage.
