Excellent tool, suitable for laser rangefinders

The only thing I didn't like / didn't like was the case. The belt loop has a Velcro closure that allows you to adjust it to fit different belt sizes, and also offers a quick release if you get stuck in some pinched place. It also charges a battery in a day if you're taking a lot of measurements, so a high-capacity battery would be nice.

Pros
  • Weight
Cons
  • Almost everything is fine

No sunlight area

The green laser on this unit is the most visible I have ever used and can be seen from a great distance. However, on bright, sunny days, which are the norm here in the California desert, the device won't read lasers more than 25 feet away. Even if I see a point 40, 50 or even 60 feet away, the measurement doesn't register. Very frustrating and disappointing as I am very happy with the visibility of the laser itself.

Pros
  • Easy to install
Cons
  • Null

Essential for old eyes

Very thankful that this happened when it happened. As an experienced real estate appraiser, my eyes just can't see the red dot of my Disto lasers anymore. While this Bosch is limited in its overall menu of options compared to the Disto, this little green laser excels at metering. Also, the baby will vibrate to let you know when it's recording the distance. Battery life was good when using the Energizer Ultimate Lithium. This is a great little tool!

Pros
  • Permanent test results
Cons
  • Some difficulties

got a lemon [edit] at Laser Distance Meters

Screen won't rotate, deal breaker for meedit: Come find out the screen just won't rotate, red 165-40 and love it, quite a downgrade. I install signs and graphics professionally, if the screen doesn't rotate I have to stick my head out to see the readings, which I won't do. So I'm going to keep it and use it around the house, the green laser is cool but I'm not going into the field with me - I prefer the smaller form factor of the red one anyway, it's too bulky to put in my lunch bag.

Pros
  • Lots of positive vibes
Cons
  • Available in white only

Stop buying cheap ones!

Buy once, cry once! Yes there are plenty of these for a third of the price, I know I have a full case of these. All are complete rubbish compared to Bosch. I use this daily for exterior construction and it NEVER fails. And yes, the green laser leaves the red laser in the dust. It works great even in bright sunlight. I pulled out my tape measure for a while to confirm the measurements. Those days are over. If you are serious about your tools, look no further and buy a Bosch. Oh yes, and the size

Pros
  • New
Cons
  • Compatible

Check for date of manufacture and claimed defect

This should be a fantastic item. Feels good in the hand, durable and EASY to read with old eyes. But reading about exploitation and finding in other reviews a supposed known defect in the puncture measurement with these dates from 03/2021 and earlier, AND getting one this week (12/14/2021) with production date 03/2021, I've grabbed right now it for returning to Revane. I was trying to see if Revain would send another production date 04/2021 or later and they just told me to "contact the…

Pros
  • One year trial
Cons
  • No instructions

Bosch GLM165-25G GREEN Laser vs Bosch GLM 50 Bluetooth RED Laser

As a HeavyLift Director/HeavyLift Engineer, I use laser tape measures EVERY DAY. All day every day. I have both the old GLM50 RED and this new GREEN measuring laser. YES, the GREEN dot is "better" visible on bright, sunny days. but it's too small to see "clearly" more than 50 feet away from you in bright sunlight. SKIP digital corner / level / bullseye level in this new. My old GLM50 REALLY has this built in design and I end up using both laser gauges all the time. It would be really desirable…

Pros
  • Great for me
Cons
  • Minor issues
