Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by csallen039 Works great, but for how long?
It works awesome. Cut my time measuring houses in 1/2. First one's lcd screen broke within a month, but got a replacement with no problems yet, so 4 stars

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Laser4measuring Solid device
Fast measurements. Intuitive. Rugged. Can do much more than I need right now. Good range. Small enough for a jacket pocket. Price point is fair.
I use it in arenas and large commercial buildings~average measurement is 40'+ to 100'+.
..at longer distances it can be hard to see the dot, but maybe some laser glasses or an assistant would help.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Markd Handy for quick measurements of large enclosed spaces
Measured out a large building with this device, took a quarter of the time a tape measure would have required.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Zach Would not recommend
Bought this and went out to measure a roof. You cannot see the laser further than 15 feet. I dont know if this is only meant for indoor use, if thats the case than why pay this much money?

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by groum If you need to map a room...
It's a bit pricey, but worth every penny. Makes room measurements so much faster than a tape measure, especially with the longer walls. The min/max feature is great if you're needing to measure obstructed corners, and don't want to move everything in the way.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Bryan Maybe not for baseboards. . .
I guess I can't really complain, the listed tolerance is 1/16th of an inch, but mine seems to measure at least that much long every time. That wouldn't matter for some things, but if you're trying to use this tool to measure case and base then it's a pretty big issue. I was hoping it would be dead on most of the time. I'll see if I can calibrate it or learn to consistently account for the error but I'm not sure this tool is going to replace the old tape measure.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by mahoo Terrible for outdoor use
I am an engineer and I bought this device to do some measurements on some bridges. The problem is that the laser beam range is about 3-4 feet on a sunny day and even if you point it to a shady spot you still cannot see the laser from 10 feet away. I had to return it an hour later. The product would be great if the laser matches the advertised range of 225 feet.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by LittleJ Pretty much as expected
These devices have been way overpriced for years. The Bosch is priced just about right for what it can do. Finding a suitable target to hit is the only challenge to using this device. A white target seems to work best. We made something similar to an old church fan. The controls are simple. Check a few settings, then point and click. Well made shell. Good battery life. Used a 100' tape to verify accuracy.
