Pros:
It is a very good voltage detector. The beep is very loud, excellent! This item is funny to play with as an old kid. It beep sometime when place next to a mobile phone. It also avoid cutting a neutral wire by mistake. It confirms the doubt whether it is an energized the circuit or not.
Cons:
unfortunately it does not detect through walls. It will not beep until you put it right against a live wire . Battery replacement is difficult as the resistance sensor gets twisted when inserted in the white non-contact plastic casing. So use good battery!
Other:
Safety comes first when using electricity. Never touch a live wire unless main is shut off( turn off ).
Bottomline:
Funny item !
