this thing woke us up at 2 in the morning... kept going off so we called the fire department. we sat out on our porch for 2 hours talking to a policeman and fire chief while we waited for the gas company and a sherifs deputy to show up with testing equipment! LOUSY machine!!! they couldn't find any problems, but the gas man said to set it outside in the fresh air to reset. Don't you know, started going off again (outside) while we were trying to catch up on our sleep. We've only had the thing for about 2 months. My husband just put it together and mounted it on the wall a few weeks ago, so it should be in tip top shape!
I've used several carbon monoxide alarms from First Alert for the past couple of years. Sadly, I was very dissapointed with the fact that they've shorted out after only a few months. For Kidde, they've made high quality carbon monoxide alarms, but also a very convient prices. The Kidde KN-COBB Basic Carbin Monoxide Alarm is a very simple and easy to setup alarm. This alrm is very affordable, and you can easily hang it up, without any problems. It is also easy to install the batteries, unlike those that require a 9 Volt batteries. Here, all it takes is a trio of AA batteries, and it works better, even during a power outage. Kidde does show it, and I really suggest you have one for your everyday houselhold.

I purchased from this seller because I wanted to replace my old alarm with the same model (the circular one shown in the picture), so that I wouldn't have to worry about moving the mounting screws or anything. The item I received was the newer, rectangular model of this alarm, sold as the 9CO5-LP.
I did have to move a screw, which only took a minute, but I'm more upset that I went out of my way to pay more for the item advertised, as well as paid for shipping instead of using a Prime-eligible seller, and ended up with the same item I could have gotten for over $10 less from another seller.
