Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by GeminiGal Great Deal and Easy Installation on Smoke Alarm!
After finding out that you should replace your smoke alarms at least every 10 years, I was on the hunt for 6 smoke detectors since most of mine appeared to be the original alarms from when the house was built in1998. I received a fabulous deal on these alarms for about $6 each. Granted these are basic alarms but my house isn't that big and I don't have any young children so these alarms worked for my situation.
Being a female, installing these alarms is not something I would normally tackle so I patiently waited for a friend to help with the installation. After waiting about a month, I decided I would take the leap and try to install them myself. Since they were battery operated and no hard wiring involved, I was amazed that the installation was so simple. I simply removed the old alarm plate from the ceiling and replaced it with the new one and they all tested fine. Bottom line - good price with no labor costs!

I was looking to replace multiple alarms in my home. They were 10 years old, so definitively time for replacement. I did not want to drill additional holes for new mounting plates. Discovered that theses units are the replacement for the 0912 models I had. Simple, 30 second installation.

It works, it's inexpensive, it mounts as easily as you expect. What more is there to say? These alarms have been around for decades and there are no surprises.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Doug Basic, just what I wanted to comply with 2016 deadline
Nothing fancy (if there is such a thing in this category) just a smoke detector with a test button. I wish the friction "lock" was tighter, but it does include a tamper-proof pin to prevent unwanted removal. Must be removed from bracket to replace battery.

Needed a solution for a combination smoke and carbon monoxide detection. This solved our need and installs without an issue.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by David very sensitive, but I prefer that over being notified too late
I bought 3x of this same model in 2003 and they worked well for about 11 years. Then I noticed the sticker on the bottom says replace every 10 years....so I got my money's worth. This is the current replacement and while it seems about the same I can't say it's identical. It *does* snap onto the same mounting ring, so replacement was literally a snap. These things work out to under a dollar a year which is absolutely worth it to me. That being said, this unit is sensitive to more than just obvious smoke. Yes, it can go off when you cook or even steam from a shower, so place them appropriately. I had a ceiling fan motor going bad that produced an "electrical smell" and a very mild haze in the air that set it off. Some people find that annoying. I find it comforting that I'll probably get sufficient warning that I won't die in my sleep some night if something goes wrong.
