Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by SasayakuEko Pretty good
I think it really is best that you use a tripod for this. The other annoyance was that the line was much shorter than I expected but other than that it is serving its purpose and I like the ease of use and sleek design.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Lt bubble is a little hard to see
This is a handy little level. Quality is good as you would expect from Bosch. The small size makes easy to carry in pocket or tool belt.
My only problem is that the bubble is a little hard to see and you can only see it from one side.
The adjustable holder that you mount to the wall works well. I used it the other day for a stair rail. You don't have to use a screw to attach it to the wall like the instructions suggest. It has a flat flange on the top and bottom so you can tape it to the wall with masking tape.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by fizzie Accurate, compact with dual laser indicators
First read the manual and follow all the safety precautions throughout.
This is both a standard level with horizontal and vertical bubble indicators and an accurate long range laser level. I also comes with the necessary 2 AAA batteries for operation so there's no delay getting started. It can be mounted to a wall, tripod or any metal surface with the imbedded magnet. The 3 position switch sends either a "spot" laser beam or a "line" laser beam from one end or the other. The middle position is off. Once mounted it is easy to level with the adjusting screw on the mount and using the bubble indicator on the level. There are instructions and pictured that help in leveling it with different mounts and different methods.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by MikeLikesIt Bosch Line and Point Laser Level
Need a laser to hang my pictures on the stairway going to the 2nd story. Had about 8 pictures to hang and want them to be perfect lined going up the stairs. This made it a lot easier. Once I got the fist picture hung, I aline the beam to the right angle I want them, and just starting hanging the picture. It made it so easy. It has a quick and easy simple set up using quick leveling with bubble vial is easy to get level. All in all I'm happy with the unit.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by jweisbart Useful Level for Home and Work
I've never used a laser level before so I wasn't sure of all the uses. I've used it at home to hang some frames on the wall. I also teach so I've used it on my whiteboard at school to draw straight lines. I also like the fact that you can attach it to a tripod to mark lines around the room. It would be useful for putting a line of tile or other border around a room.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Oneydee How did I get along without this tool for so long?
This is must-have tool for hard-core DIY'ers. The laser level makes picture hanging, curtain rod installation, ceiling tile work and a host of other DIY tasks easier by far.
The tool is nicely constructed and easy to use. It comes with a magnetic base that clings to a mount that can be pinned to the wall. Once so mounted, the laser level can be pointed at any angle to create the red laser line along a wall. I recently put up curtain rods in our house after a major renovation that had removed all of the old curtain rods. I measured distance from the floor, put up one rod hanger at the end of a 20 foot run, lined up and leveled the laser level on the first rod hanger and then put up 5 additional hangers along the laser line. The result was perfect.
There are places where a conventional level is still a better tool but the more I use the laser level the less I have need for any other level.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by JohnS Good for basic leveling and alignments
This is a great leveling and alignment tool for basic tasks. (Pictures, shelving, other objects on walls.) It is also useful for alignment work such as when you need to find a point on multiple surfaces. (Installing electrical outlet boxes in a room with multiple walls.)
The tool is easy to use and has a mount that allows you to hang the tool on the surface for leveling. The mount does require that you install a nail/screw/pushpin into the wall first, to allow the mount to hang. I prefer to just hold the mount on the wall to get my alignment line.
You can also mount it on a tripod but the setup is a bit more complicated as you have to make sure your tripod mount is properly level, and when it moves it needs to stay level. A bit complicated.
Of course, you can use the laser level without the mount, which was my preferred use. I used it for mounting pictures and boxes. See pictures.
The instructions are fairly detailed. It will take you a few tries, perhaps, to get used to its operation.
(Position of the tool is important.)
Overall, its a well-built tool, but certainly only for basic hanging tasks.
