Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by PHnoD Dad thought it was pretty neat. For the tool collector though.
I used this twice for its purpose and many times to check level on many different occasions. I played with it to learn it and had plans to go and help my Dad at his hunting camp in a week. I figured what we needed was a piece of angle steel 4 feet and quick clamps so I could clamp angle steel to the ladder then attach this level using the powerful magnets on the back of the base. I duct taped the angle steel where needed so I wouldn’t scuff my laser level and actually it helped it to slide the level up and down easier too. If the floor was being walked on IT WOULD SHAKE the red laser line. I had forgotten the camera, so a month later I returned to help and took pictures of what I used the level for. I used both vertical and horizontal at the same time to set frames for windows that we put in the 2x4 walls. The only bother was getting in the way of the line (have to remember it’s there) and the laser line itself kind of hard to compare to a pencil line but for the rough opening work, it was perfect and it doesn’t replace a true frame level though. The batteries lasted for a long time there and other places and still has the same batteries it came with. This is truly for a rough job level or for big items like ducts, conduit and frame work. I used this to level a tie plate support for a wall that was tipping out on a block garage in the day light too, line wasn’t as pronounced but I saw it well enough. I couldn’t see a tripod working well unless you do only waist high work all the time, no you can’t just set it up and keep swiveling it to move the lines unless everything is perfect plumb and square, you will have to move this around with you. In other words if your wall is tipped in or out at any point and you want to draw lines down just by setting up the level and swiveling it to move laser line, where ever the walls are tipped in or out, you will not have square lines to follow. The 1.5” angle steel I used actually was rusty dirty and bulky but if it was replaced with a like item clean and new it would be great. Battery compartment is ridiculous to open with my fingers and fear breaking it with a small screwdriver to open, I am not a fan of leaving batteries in anything and the case that this stores in has holes that you can push three batteries into and hold them. This unit should have a warning to make you lock the unit before travel, there is a lock that holds the internal laser component’s from being knocked around, if you remember. DO NOT LEAVE YOUR LEVEL AND PLUMB BOB HOME. 4 stars and a bit pricey.

Great addition to my tools. Ideal for Ceilings and Metal Framing. Found it for 200 bucks at my local pawnshop. It's actually 2 lasers in 1 small package.Good job, Dewalt.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by jbb49 Great product
This level takes making sure your lines are plumb and level easy. It comes in a sturdy case with the correct batteries. The ability to lock the self leveling feature keeps the internal components from getting damaged accidentally while being stored or transported. It is threaded so that it can be mounted on a tripod, but it also has magnets on the back so that it can be easily held on a metal track. Awesome product!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by wcsd a necessity for all types of construction
This is an amazing tool that lets you easily and quickly set level lines or plumb spots to help you set level trim work, fencing, structural steel, masonry... the real challenge would be to find things it can't help you with that a string line, level, and plumb bob can't help you with. The unit is bigger than I expected, but can be easily held. Anyone doing any type of construction, whether its on their own home setting shelves or on the job site, regardless of trade will find this useful. The hard case is a great addition since mine gets tossed in a toolbox full of heavy stuff. It comes to work with me and so far has helped me make quick work of carpentry projects and a small block wall. I'm currently searching for a tripod to mount mine, since it has magnets even just a steel stud with a base would work.

This laser is perfect for any pipe fitter. Horizontal feature is for setting elevations. Vertical feature is for intersecting odd angles. Spot feature is for locating drops or finish wall location. No more carrying 2 lasers. This laser has it all.
