    Zircon MultiScanner X85 is worthless. I went thought out the house looking for studs, It would see a stud - then with a second pass it would not - third pass nothing , fourth pass nothing , fifth pass something , sixth pass nothing -its a guessing game with this stud finder, It would be easier to just knock on the wall to find studs.This thing might be good to find satellites in outer space,- I just need to find wood stud in the walls. I bought the M150 Franklin stud finder. works great with every pass. Zircon should be ashamed to sell such garbage . Thank You -Home depot -for taking it back- seems like most products are make buy a couple of manufacturers - they make a whole lot of things that are completely worthless, Is it just to see what they can get away with ? I bet Franklin stud finders and Zircon stud finders are owned by the same clowns.

    I have had this stud finder for a while now, I does not find edge or center of studs ( wood or metal ). It did not detect live un-shielded wire, and it would not find hot or cold water lines in pex or copper. This has been one of the most unreliable tools I have ever used. I bought this for use professionally as a maintenance person, but it has failed me every time. I will be replacing this product.

      Hello. The X85 is a stud sensor that also thermally detects the center of actively heated
      water-filled 1⁄2 in. (13 mm) diameter plastic pipes up to 2 in.(50 mm) deep. We're not sure which mode of the tool was not working for. If you contact at 800-245-9265 mon-fri, 8am-5pm PST we would be happy to help you solve the issue regardless of the mode you were having problems with. Thank you. zircon

      Worked as advertised. I needed a scanner that would see the joist on roof through shingles and plywood. Worked well I was able to mount an antenna and hit a joist.

      Don't waste your money
      It doesn't work at all! Switching between functions is clumsy. Cheaply made. It doesn't find anything even behind .5" Sheetrock.

      Hi. We're sorry to hear of your experience with your X85. Under normal conditions should be a very easy, accurate and versatile scanner to use. There are enough variables in wall construction (insulation properties, moisture issues, general inconsistencies, etc. etc.) that we would have had to do some trouble shooting with you to figure it out. I’m positive we can help you out, for as we know from experience, there is always a reason and a solution for these problems. Please contact us. We offer toll free support by phone (800 245 9265) during normal business hours Mon. thru Fri. 8:00am to 5:00pm PST. We also maintain a 24/7 interactive online knowledge base and email support that can we found on the Zircon website. Thank you. zircon

      The perfect tool for the job.
      Needed to install 3 grab bars in a shower with tile and drywall constructions. The X85 is the perfect tool to find the hinden construction details. Read the instructions carefully for proper use of tool!
