Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great features. The features are great...takes the guesswork out of locating the studs, etc.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very nice to use 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!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Short learning curve 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.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Bosch GMS120 Multi Scanner I bought this scanner about 2 months ago to help with assisting in finding live wires and copper pipes in the walls where I work. I'm a maintenancce technician and I do a lot of sheetrock repair and replacement. in the past I had to use a cheap little stanley wall scnanner that couldn't find a wall stud to save its life. I stumbled upon the bosch gms120 by accident online and read what it could do and decided to spend the extra money to try it out. I bought it online and when it arrived I put it to use asap. The stud finder is dead on accurate and the ability to find the center of the stud helps tremendously when cutting drywall and installing screws into the wall. The metal detection features are also very acurate in finding copper pipe and or rebar and the fact that it can distinguish between ferrous and non ferrous metals helps out a lot. The only issue I have with the scanner is the live wire detection. There has to be 120v+ power flowing through the wire to detect it and sometimes the scanner doesn't find the live wires. I've had the scanner right over live wires with 120v running through them and the scanner picked up a weak signal. Other than that this scanner works way better than I could ever imagine or expect. I highly recommened this scanner to any homeowner or professional out there. The cost is a little bit much but well worth is if you use it often.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from My querry. Does GMS120 wall scanner detect plastic? The conduit water pipe in my house is plastic / UPVC. Thank you.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Outstanding features Bought this for several reaons: 4.5 inch depth reading; auto center; locates rebars in concrete. Beats the top of the line stud finders I already have. Easy to use, even for my wife.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Looks good, fails to deliver I trust the Bosch name, and in part that was why I was prepared to pay so much for a cable detector. A decision I now regret. It may just be this unit, but the results are so erratic on cable detection to be totally useless, and potentially dangerous.
