Default Circuit tracer

Anyone here own an Amprobe AT-1000? Is the performance on de-energized circuits as advertised?

Thanks,

Thanks,
If no one here owns an AT-1000, then can you recommend a circuit tracer that is suitable for residential work? I am looking for one that will work on both energized & unenergized circuits that also will not break the bank.
Thank you.

I have a greenlee model 2007 Power Finder circuit tracer. To find a dead circuit use must have an extra 9 volt battery and you trace the neutral. If you have voltage on the circuit it's even easier. It's great for locating breakers when someone failed to label the breakers. I've also found I can use it to locate underground conduits if they have a live circuit in it. I believe the cost on these is now just below $300. I've had mine for 10 years and it cost about $250 then.
