Rated 3.7 out of 5 by 20 reviewers.
Rated 2 out of 5 by Limited usefulness This product seems to have limited use. I wanted a moisture meter with pins, but this was the only one they had in-store. I was trying to measure the moisture in my ceiling after a small leak in a second floor bathroom. This device is useless on uneven surfaces (i.e. popcorn ceilings or trim). It works well on wide, smooth surfaces like walls. If you're trying to check moisture on anything other than a wall, find a meter with pins. July 29, 2014
Rated 1 out of 5 by Useless I've been using a protimeter surveymaster for many years, and was looking for an inexpensive backup device, but this isn't it. The protimeter showed 10% - 12% while using it on drywall, but the ryobi showed nothing. I got a paper towel wet and put it underneath a very thin floor mat; the protimeter easily identified the location of the wet paper towel, while the ryobi showed nothing. If it can't find moisture with a simple test like this, it's useless. May 3, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by works great This product showed exactly where the moisture was in my walls and floor after the fire sprinkler broke in my home. When I opened up the wall, it was wet and the mold had begun to set in. This Ryobi poduct saved me so much from further damage to my home. The inexpensive price of the moisture meter is well worth this product. Very happy with this product and this is the first review I've ever written. January 1, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Seems to work good I far as I can tell it works good, but I don't have anything to compare it with as to accuracy. October 29, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Accurate moisture reader Bought this to measure moisture readings in drywall after a recent water leak. It works great and can easily pinpoint where the drywall is wet and where it's dry, even though none of it is wet to the touch. I've taken several readings over the past few weeks and watched the moisture level go down as the drywall dries out May 14, 2014
