Nice look and feel are definitely the main plus of this product. Convenient to hold, gives off reasonably loud sound and pleasant light.
Alarm is only triggered when a certain threshold is reached, volume doesn't change gradually but jumps from 0 to 100% at once. Thus, it only works in close proximity to the cables and doesn't give off any weak electromagnetic perturbations. To me this appeared very counterintuitive.
As a result - it fails to detect wires in walls or give a hint of the voltage involved.
Also it's not real-time -- there's a slight delay before alarm sounds so you have to hold it steadily for a while to be sure if your target is powered.
Certainly good-to-have, might help to do some housework, but if you're constantly dealing with high-voltage -- choose more wisely.
Don't expect anything fancy and you'll be satisfied.
