Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by CARealtor EXCELLENT PURCHASE!
I am a real estate agent that cringes every time I write down the dimensions of client's rooms, as all it takes is to be off a bit, and someone sues you for showing for false information.
I have been using a "sonic" type electronic measuring device for a while, and was always extremely unhappy with the accuracy, as I would have to check multiple times till I got two or three readings that were the same, before I could trust the reading.
This little jewel blew me a way the first time I used it.
Without reading a single instruction, I quickly figured out that pushing the button once would activate the laser and again to take the actual reading. It read 8ft 11 and 15/16ths of a inch.
It couldn't possible be that accurate ... Could it?
I hit it again and got the exact same reading.
After trying several times, I was so impressed, I just had to break out the old tape measure and verify. Every time took a reading with this laser measurer and then verified it, it was accurate down to the 1/16th of an inch.
The only thing that you want to be aware of (and I read in other reviews), is that it doesn't work well on shiny surfaces. Some shiny things would take a couple seconds longer to give me a reading, and some really shiny things did not give me a reading at all. In my business, I would never have to point at a shiny object, so the one CON is really meaningless for me.
I would HIGHLY recommend this unit

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by SRG1 Great product
I work in disaster restoration.. When sewage floods a house the last thing I want to do is run an old fashion tape through that and then wind it up. This product is accurate and fast. Access to the battery is quick unlike some that have screws holding the cover in place. Battery life is good. I use it daily, I have dropped it many times and it is still running strong

I need a measuring device to measure longer distances and easier than a tape measure.
I found this device to be very user freindly and easy to carry around. Checked against a tape measure and found it very accurate.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Tony Works well, but don't use with metal studs!
This product is VERY handy when you have to measure from two common surfaces such as concrete to wood, wood to wood, and so forth. But I have found (to my sorrow) that it does NOT measure accurately whenever the laser is reflecting back from a shiny surface such as a galvanized metal stud or anything like that. I have had errors introduced that ranged from 1/2" to 1 1/14" OVER length, when measuring and having the laser bounce back from a metal stud or other very shiny reflective surface. This is really annoying, and can be a major issue if you are trying to eliminate waste or running short on materials. I have learned that I have to stick a piece of masking tape over the shiny surface to measure to it, and of course this it not always practical. (I bought this to measure heights in a home with 19' balloon walls, steel stud construction, so I would NOT have to climb so much.)
Just to be sure it was not operator error, the last time I checked I used the laser measure device and got a measurement of 94 3/8". I then checked with a physical tape measure, held tightly to both ends, and got a measurement of 93 3/4". Sure, I can always trim off the piece if it's a little too long, but that is wastage, both of time and material. An error of 5/8" in 8' is pretty significant, to me.
So, even though I said I would recommend this product, it is with RESERVATIONS.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by hardliner a great tool
This product makes getting room dimensions 10 times faster than with a tape measure. I like how you can adjust where you measure from on the laser. This the second time I've gotten this laser measuring tool after losing the first one somewhere on the job site.
