Most Helpful Customer Reviews
This i65 unit from Zircon works very well, based on my experience. I have been remodeling a very old home for three years, and it included removing and working with existing wood lath with plaster walls.
Conventional wisdom says none of the modern-day Stud Sensors work with wood lath and plaster walls, and the reasons cited include... 1) The rows of wood lath can vary in thickness -- thereby, throwing off the reading depth of the sensor. 2) When plaster is applied, it is forced through the gaps in the wood lath and builds up behind the lath to lock the plaster to the wall upon drying. These varying thicknesses also throw off the accuracy of these stud sensors.
Yes, I agree with all of that on merit -- but I've used the i65 successfully after realizing a few things. First of all, many owners never bother to read the instructions, and try to use these devices too quickly. Here are a few tips that might help... a) Set the unit flat against the wall...
I was researching these things like crazy. Everytime I found a good one, there would be a review saying it sucked. I finally went into the nearby Lowes to see them in person.
Once there, I was just as lost. Then I noticed a display case Zircon had set up. They had a piece of drywall with a wooden stud behind it. Hanging below it dangled this Zircon unit begging to be tested. I ran it over the drywall and it found the stud every time. I did it at least 10 times and it gave perfect results. Even better, it shows you in 'real time' via the LCD display where the edges and center are. The LCD literally shows the stud moving across it while you slide the unit past the stud. When it reaches the center, it gives a loud beep and a red laser lights up showing you the exact center spot.
I bought it and headed home. I ran all over the house. It found studs every time. I should note my home was built in 1996 and contains smooth normal drywall and gypsum walls. I'm very...
This thing REALLY works !!!!!!
I have a few partially exposed walls covered with plaster and paneling so I was able to visually verify it's accuracy. It was DEAD ON CENTER every time. I had purchased a cheaper Zircon called the "SS Pro" model for $19.97 from Home Depot 3 weeks ago and returned it because I proved it to be 1" off in either direction 100% of the time using the method I mentioned above. I just ordered 2 more of the Zircon i65 Onestep Models (# 61960) for my 2 sons as birthday gifts. It's well worth the money !!! Have a Great Day !!! Stan
