Rated 4.6 out of 5 by 17 reviewers.
Rated 4 out of 5 by Best For Plaster Worked as advertised. I was working with 80 year old lathe and plaster and the Zircon found the studs where other stud finders failed. I would get a cheaper device to find the studs in drywall, but for plaster I finally found a product that worked. July 10, 2010
Rated 5 out of 5 by Wanted to mount plasma tv to walls I have lathe and plaster walls. And never hung mirrors, pictures ect. for years cause they were too heavy. I had other studfinders that failed to get any results. Until i found this product, not only did it find all studs but located my pipes too. Now mty Flat tv's are on walls and look great September 25, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great tool that provides information other locators don't. The M40 is a very simple working tool... just one button, a string of lights, and a tone but it gives PRECISE locations of metal. There is a "wide-angle" locator scan and a pin-point scan. I've been a carpenter for 50 years and often wished I had X-ray vision to see into walls. Between my Zircon i520, which does a great job, and now this M40, I feel confident that I know what is inside that wall and where! Both tools require some getting used to and practice. These tools are just - tools. They beep, point, light-up, whatever... it is up to the operator to take the info and make sense of it. Watch the videos and read the instructions and then practice! The M40 tells you know where metal is and it does it well. You can follow pipes, locate sheet metal, rebar, and even get some idea of the size of the metal. I've only had it for a month but it goes with me to every job! It appears to be well built and sturdy.. time will tell. May 7, 2013
Rated 4 out of 5 by Does the job for finding studs through ceramic tile I bought this tool specifically to assure that I would hit studs to mount grab bars in a ceramic-tiled shower surround. Regular stud finders, including the magnet type, did not do the job. This tool pin-pointed drywall nail locations precisely. That permitted drilling the needed eight holes through the ceramic tile, backerboard and drywall, hitting a stud for every hole drilled. This is a nice tool addition to my collection of handman aids.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Save you time and money. Find your hidden nail, metal stud in dry wall, wood stud in wall construction, find metal electrical pipes in wood wall construction. Finding a wood beam or joist, locate the nail and you will find the stud 9 of 10 times and figure on center spacing to eliminate the guess work. Find electrical pipes in wood walls using deep sensor.
