Draper 3 in 1 Detector is rated 3.0 out of 5 by 46.
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Tricky to adjust for successful detection. Used successfully for detecting pipes and cables. Fine adjustment needed for satisfactory use. Must read the instructions particularly relating to possible static interference. Unable to detect studs but that was not a current need. Would probably have to use the alternative adjustment process and not the rotating wheel.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Read the instructions and use your head With any of these life-saving detectors, you do need to get used to how they work; especially as they could save you from being electrocuted, or blowing the fuses, or flooding the living room when all you were doing was putting up a picture! Obviously I wasn't there, but there's a good chance that the reviews of first-time users are a result of what I went through when I first got one. Constant beeps? Adjust the sensitivity wheel. Didn't detect the light switch cable/kept beeping? Adjust the wheel and turn the blummin thing through 90 degrees so it's not right next to the metal faceplate, or just the copper insides of the switch. Finally, stud finder beeping no matter what? Your wall is possibly plaster and lath if the property is old enough and there you have it. That one's a bummer! In metal finding setting, if you run it close to a corner on a plasterboard wall, it will most likely beep. This because of the expanded metal corner that is quite probably there. I sincerely recommend taking five minutes waving it over a pencil in stud finder setting and playing with the wheel to get your bearings. Likewise a screwdriver or table spoon, again see how it works.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Doesn’t work Bought it this weekend, it just doesn’t work properly. The stud alarm (super annoying btw why not just have the light??) went off even on the lowest sensitivity as soon as you pressed it to the wall. The voltage finder couldn’t detect a cable above a light switch that I know to be there and was drowned out anyway by the metal stud alarm which sounded continuously against a brick wall. Took a punt as this was cheap, but it’s just rubbish. Do not buy.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Unreliable readings Seems to work ok for metal detection but not for studwork. Appears to show all wall is studs

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beeps when it should Finds stuff then beeps. Can’t complain. Bear in mind mine came with batteries, even though it says it doesn’t.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Found the studs but gave a lot of false positives I bought this to find the studs in a wall for putting up a cupboard. It did find the studs but gave a lot of false positives so didn't fill me with confidence
