Well priced and have good sensitivity - always trigger when I burn food in oven or the wood fire releases smoke inside.
I had a problem with 2 of the three detectors in my house false alarming after a couple of years. I figure they might be getting dust on the sensors so pulled them down and blew them out with compressed air. So far no false triggering since then. Vacuuming them might achieve the same thing - I haven't tried that.
Maybe, it depends on what you're after.
