I have used similar products and have needed / wanted one for myself this product even though it is not the top of the line does what it is intended to do very well

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by GoDux Installing kitchen cabinets? Buy this level!
Installing cabinets has two critical leveling measurements:
- Find the "high point" on the floor where cabinets will rest, and setting as the level line for all cabinet tops
- Install cabinets to this level
This level easily allow you to find the high point level level by walking the floor with a pre-set stick (at 34.5 inches) and adjusting the level up each time you find a new high point. Once you are confident you have the high point, leave the laser on, cover the windows, and install the cabinets to intersect this line. This was a first time install for me and we were able to get every cabinet to intersect the thickness of the laser line front/back/sides/wall. Bonus measurement was the ability to estimate the first shim level before dropping the cabinet on it - you know, that corner shim that gets covered and requires you to move the cabinet if not right!
Extra bonus for this level was installing pre-hung doors, super,super simple!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Rlatham Must have for Plumb & Level Installations
I thought these ‘homeowner’ laser levels were just that for a ‘lazy homeowner’. This ‘Bosch Self Leveling Laser Level’ has made me rethink that position. When I replaced the tile in our home right after moving in 20 years ago I used all of the old methods measuring the space, plumbing one wall marking out the tile set pattern and calculating the tile pattern. With this unit I checked the plumb of the wall with a level then set the unit up on the counter and matched the level line to a verified plumb line. The laser beams were able to verify the layout and the grout lines of tile row by tile row in a matter of minutes. The same was true for the kitchen cabinets. This unit took a full hour’s job of creating a level line and snapping the chalk lines for the entire kitchen, of 20 years ago, to a point and view layout. Either the professional doing full layouts or a homeowner trying to get cabinets, shelves or tile lay outs done correctly and installing the job THIS IS YOUR TOOL. Any good camera tripod can be used with this laser projector to get professional results in minimal time. The old ways work, but not as fast and with a lot more mathematics!

Apparently I don't have to tell you, but this thing is AWESOME. I use it for hardwood flooring, tiling showers and more. Bright beam, accurate and so convenient. Just buy it.

I work in an underground coal mine and needed a tool to help me set steel beams level and also profile belt lines. This model has a locking device when the switch is off and I need that as it protects the self levelling device when not in use. Bough my first one last April and still working fine!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by aroyals very simple to use level
It's pretty impossible to not use this level correctly, simply turn it on and set it down at the height you want to use it. I was hanging a row of hooks in my closet, so I set it up on a shelf across from where I wanted the hooks. As soon as you set it down the lasers automatically come on and it self-levels. There is a single vetical and a single horizontal line, so you can use either one or both on a project. Just be careful if you don't have the unit on a tri-pod that you don't bump it and move it while in the middle of a project.
Comes with a nice little carrying pouch to protect it, and it's nice that it actually comes with two double A batteries. This is a good level for projects around the house, I wouldn't use it for large scale things over 30' wide, but for most of the stuff around the average house this is perfectly sufficient. Very easy to see red lines.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Orvy Wish I had bought one sooner
Works great Excellent for what it can do. I wish I had got one of these sooner. Excellent for just about anything you need to level or square on vertical and horizontal. In heavy light if you get rose colored glasses the laser line stands out very nice. Also at HD. Used for siding installation and it will wrap around outside corners amazingly. Great product for the $$.
You will need a tripod of some kind or set it on something not moving. It finds level by itself then turns on the laser. I used one I had when we all took Film photos in the past. But Bosch has several types in the HD store.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by poundpound So far so good
Just got one at Depot, web said ship to store only but they did have one in the store. Definitely get a cross hair one like this, not the dot one. Used it to level a 16 x 14 ceiling, worked great. Does not rotate but no problem if you shoot to 2 walls and mark on the walls then move it to the opposite corner and line the laser to the marked line then mark the other 2 walls. Did not include a tripod but I had one. Did not try it outside. Make sure you lock it off when moving it.
