Rated 4 out of 5 If only the button was like
Firstly I would like to say its a great product for price and accurate measurements evey time even in sunlight.
The only issue I have is the button it makes it feel cheap, my day job is working as surveyor and I have this and an old version with its rubber button which was perfect. Why did stanley go backwards in design?
Please Stanley if you bring out a new design upgrade it with a more ergonomical button and make it rain proof.

Fiddly buttons, no sound or click to indicate the measurement has been taken.

I bought this during our house hunting - it's a fast, non-invasive way to get an idea of sizes of rooms etc.
We've now bought the house and I still find I use this for doing DIY house, garden measuring. I've used this from measuring curtains to the fish pond (it's not waterproof!).
It'll measure 6m+ in daylight against a wooden fence (which absorbs the light).
The 3D volume measurement is more of a gimmick as most DIYers will know that you need to measure more than one point on a wall..
Only thing I think that could improve this is a backlit display (when you're measuring out of a dark spot). However the display is clear and easy to read.
