Fails after time
Has a total of 11h on unit, and now shuts off to a strong radio signal. I could be in the middle of a cave and it would say it. Disappointed with the product considering the cost. Will no longer be purchasing bosch equipement as they will not repair this unit.

Excellent results after some learning!
The first application of the scanner failed miserably. It produced what appeared to me as spurious results, worse than cheap scanners. However, it turned out that this scanner requires a totally different techniques for scanning a wall. You have to go slowly back and forth to get a clear reading. Then it perfectly detects rebar in 6in concrete walls, metal conduits behind layers of sheetrock and plywood, and other hidden components. I'm finally happy with it, and it was well worth the investment. I think the application video should outline a bit better how to apply the scanner to get the best results.

great for the price
The cheaper of the good scanners, very accurate in depth and in material, great for find rebars on concrete but not very accurate on diameter

This device saved us a ton of money by proving wall-tie existence with minimal grout removal for visual verification. The only reason it doesn't receive 5 stars is due to wheel spin errors from undulating grout. We solved this by placing a sheet of foam board over the area for faster and broader scans to narrow down detection areas. Play with the modes even if they don't exactly match your situation and use "signal mode" if items are hard to find.

The D-Tech user interface would benefit from displaying the items detected as though were looking at an X-ray rather than just as round dots. The depth display looks like the pipes/wires in an X-ray but is not. The device would be much friendlier with color to indicate depth and the display showing the actual items detected like X-ray vision. The D-Tech is somewhat useful when you already know what is hidden in the wall. Less useful when your knowledge of the wall is more limited. The location accuracy of items is adequate.

Worth its weight in gold
I bought a house that has reinforced concrete walls, ceiling, and floor. The standard construction methods where I live embed the electrical and plumbing infrastructure in the concrete. I was easily able to map the location of the rebar, water lines, and electrical conduit before I drilled any holes for shelves or cabinets. Other less expensive stud finders are useless.

I purchased this device and used it in several applications and it and it has exceeded my expectations. It is a tool and you have to understand how it works and how to properly use it. If you do not know how to use it it won't work and of course you will blame the tool. It's not the tool fault it's a users
