Perfect. Went with the lowest end Bosch GLM20 but very satisfied.

Home made. finally bought one of these after many years of being fascinated by the idea. Suddenly I measure everything in my house and see how easy it is. A great addition to my tool box for the price. Note that it works with reflected laser light, so it is more suitable when both ends of the measured distance are facing each other (e.g. opposite walls or inside a window frame). It's still easy to measure flat objects, for example by holding the object to the end of a coffee table to have the…

Pros
  • Sturdy construction
Cons
  • Very expensive

I have to walk around several houses daily to check the roughness of window and door openings. I was hoping this would shorten the time at home. I found it was quicker to do them with a tape measure. The constant fiddling with the measurement hold button, the small display and the backlight, which always switched off too early, became annoying. For some reason, it also accidentally shut down completely. I started checking the measurements with a tape measure because I was beginning to distrust…

Pros
  • Constant test results
Cons
  • Not sure

Good for light measurement, but not always reliable.

I am a real estate appraiser and bought this to measure the inside and outside of houses. This is one of the cheapest models, so it doesn't always work perfectly, but it's good for measuring light. It's supposed to work at heights up to 65 feet, but I've found that any distance over 40 feet can be difficult, especially in tall buildings. Although the measurement accuracy is very good. If you want/need to do light measurements without buying a high end instrument, this is a great option…

15 minutes and it was worth it :)

I needed the exact square footage of my entire home to replace my carpet which has not been used by my many four legged adopted puppies and kittens in the past 12 years. Years. I know Bosch and still use some of the older products from their line. When the price of this device dropped, I jumped on the deal. Pro, it's tiny, feels good in hand, thin enough to fit in almost any pocket, feels very neat (I measured the same distance). My old, yet another function gave me different readings, guess…

Pros
  • Free for educational purposes
Cons
  • Useless features

The best small laser meter is

I used a previous model of this laser meter (which has lasted a long time and withstood a lot of wear and tear and in fact STILL WORKS but it's time for an upgrade). The recently updated has a few small improvements that make a big difference. First, the screen is backlit so you can see the numbers on the screen when you're measuring in a basement or other dark place. With the previous model, I always had to hunt for lights or whip out my phone to use as a light, which is a juggle when you're…

Pros
  • Perfect for outdoor activities
Cons
  • Not sure

Accurate, very easy to use.

Revain combines reviews of the GLM15 ("main unit") and the GLM20. This rating refers to the GLM20. DURING USE: This laser meter is very easy to use: just turn it on and it will measure in real time. Press the button once (there is only one button) and the measurement will be saved. Press the button again and new measurements are displayed in real time while the previous measurement is still displayed. I prefer this to my Stanley laser meter, which requires you to press a button twice to take a…

Pros
  • Excellent overall performance
Cons
  • Doubtful
