Very good and inexpensive data extractor

Has all the basic functions. It is possible to download Disco Connection software and get measurements directly to Excel files on a laptop if the laptop has Bluetooth.

Pros
  • Solid design
Cons
  • Some complications

False advertising

SCALE WARNING !Product advertised as "Made in Hungary". However, the item I received is marked "Made in China". Don't waste $75 on this product. You can get a higher quality product for half the price. FRAUD WARNING!

Pros
  • User friendly
Cons
  • ---

High accuracy with linear measurement

These are the best laser gauges on the market. I had to send this one back because it was too accurate! On more expensive models you can change fractions to 1/8 inch, 1/16 inch but this is 1/64 inch. In my work we measure within 16 inches.

Pros
  • Easy to read control panel
Cons
  • No automatic measurement

Great device but quality could be better

I really liked the Bluetooth interface and the accompanying application for the iPad. However, after only using the device a few times, the LCD started showing all 8 for measurements and Bluetooth stopped sending measurement data to the iPad. Bought a different brand instead.

Pros
  • Absolutely amazing!
Cons
  • negative exists

No business. contradicting properties.

All the information available on the Revain and Leica website says the D1 has a range of 130ft. The packaging says 120 feet. There's also no case to stash or wear on a belt. Given how these lasers are used, it seems a bit cheap. But I've used them before and have no doubts about the functionality and quality, hence 4 stars anyway.

Pros
  • Great value for money
Cons
  • Legacy model

how long walls between door openings

Use only for measurement, not on the phone. I haven't had time to figure it out yet, so drawing a diagram on paper is still faster for me. However, this device saves me 30-50 percent of the time it takes me to measure the floor of a house with a tape measure. Still need tape for some issues like long walls between doors and when the house is cluttered with furniture, no problem! I don't understand why I didn't do this sooner.

Pros
  • Brings joy
Cons
  • Other Other

The tapered shape makes it difficult to stay straight

I'm measuring floors for a design company. I'm trying to implement a measurement app and was frustrated to find I had to "upgrade" to a smaller laser than what I've been using for the last 5 years. See, if you're just using this as a weekend warrior, it will be perfect. Accuracy within 32 inches. The battery life seems to last a good month with continuous use, it is solid and reliable. Now, having used the Leica Disto D330i for the past 5 years, I'm spoiled. In comparison, the laser is cheap…

Pros
  • Decent performance
Cons
  • Not sure

Good price, poor documentation

The documentation for this device is seriously lacking and it doesn't sync data like most other Bluetooth devices. For example, in the informative documentation, nothing explains the nuance of pairing the D1 with a phone. In Android 12 I finally figured out that you should NOT use the Android Bluetooth settings to pair/discover it, otherwise the Leica software won't detect it. You simply let the Leica software do the pairing on its own, which doesn't work with any other Bluetooth device. While…

Pros
  • Ideal for outdoor activities
Cons
  • Operating speed
