Bosch Laser Range Finder DLE40
I bought this to measure all room dimension in new home, to provide accurate dimensions for all new fixtures and fitting, allowing me to accurately detail drawings in minutes! Now part of my tool kit for work, to measure customer installations. Have already recommended to a colleague and they have already ordered this model for their own home/business use. Very easy use, highly recommended

Accurate time saver
Before buying I did research and it was a combination of price versus accuracy that clinched the deal. At first I tested the accuracy against a tape measure laid on concrete in full sun and I was disapointed. It came up with all sorts of figures because I couldn't see where the laser was pointing over a distance of about 8ft. I then started closer and worked out to 10 ft and only once was it not spot on and then it was accurate to 1/16". Impressive. Later when the sun wasn't so bright, I used it to measure an irregular shaped pond and it was brilliant. The laser could be seen clearly and it saved a lot of time. The initial problems could have been teething problems
In conclusion, a good tool but care is required if used in bright sun/lights. I feel have good value for money and glad I didn't get a cheaper one with less accuracy.

Great measure, great price
I bought this for a site visit and survey.
Very happy with the accuracy which i checked a few times with a 30m tape. It made quick and easy work of the job and saved me a lot of time.
I now use this at home and work. Great product at a great price!

Much better than I expected
Where do I start with this...
I have more steel tape measures than I can possibly count, but they all have one limitation. Their length. It's never long enough.
This unit gets over the limitations of pocket tapes and then some. I was sceptical at first over it's accuracy because it was a great deal cheaper than the Leica models so I constantly rechecked the readings with a steel tape, and they were always spot on.
Much easier and quicker than manually measuring distances, no tape to drop or flop all over the place or land in the mud when marking out footings.
Also has the additional benefit of measuring area and volume also. Very handy for flooring or wall covering calculations.
Can be mounted on a tripod also.
