The digital readout is good. Works great. The vials work as any other bubble level. The battery life is somewhat suspect but I use the thing all day long so I tend to wear batteries down faster than an average user. Reviews online stated that one should tape the battery door shut so that one would not lose it. I did that as pictured. While magnets are adequate they are just glued in. After using the level for a short while one had fallen out and broke in half. I re-glued it back in, with better adhesive, and kept on working.
While the digital level works perfectly until you run the batteries down it just becomes a regular bubble level. I feel that the magnets should be a bit stronger and made to be contained internally. By far it's the most expensive BUBBLE level I used at work. When powered up the digital readout is a definite plus. In the future I may think twice about buying another one but for home use it is more than adequate.

This product was just want i was looking for. It is small, accurate, and easy to carry. I am a tower climber and I appreciate the versatility and the easy use of this product. Whenever I work at heights I need tools that I don't have to worry about, this is one such tool. It is dependable

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Edward Good value for the money
Very accurate and repeatable. Where I work with metal I really enjoy the magnetic base. I just wish it was rechargeable.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Roadrunner777 First one was DOA, Next one was OK
First one I bought would not power up. Easily returned and exchanged. The replacement worked fine.
Pros: Full featured, in rise/foot, % grade, degrees, even a thermometer. Backlit screen, easy to read.
Cons: Poor design for battery door, overall not a robust design.
Fully featured, as above. Hold and reset functions allow a great deal of flexibility.
However, in some ways this level is a bit fragile. The battery door is like one for a remote control, easy to pop off and lose. It might be a good idea to tape over it before it gets lost. I would be extra careful about exposure to water, dust, and dropping. It does come with a case, and I recommend using it.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Drifter Issue with horizontal level, but AMAZING customer support.
This level has some great features like absolute and relative angle measurements, as well as temperature (unexpected, but nice). It also has back up horizontal and vertical bubble levels in case the batteries die. I bought this while installing windows on a time crunch so didn't have the chance to train myself on its use and thought that a digital bias in horizontal was due to operator error. I finished the windows using the bubble and only later took time to thoroughly check the level. It had a 2.4 degree bias in the digital compared to the bubble when measuring absolute horizontal (vertical was dead on). I called Husky, explained, and they are sending a replacement with absolutely no hassle. With this kind of customer service, Husky tools will certainly make my short list for tool buys in the future! ... and I'll keep checking my levels before I use 'em.

Level works for what I needed it for .The on off button sticks most times ,it is more annoying then anything .It comes with a nice carrying case, which keeps it from getting all beat up.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by LEDengineer Super handy level
I use one of these for around-the-house projects, and another one for metal fabrication in my shop. The digital display flips over when you use it upside-down, making it easy to read. Also I didn't see it in the description, but the display is backlit - a great feature. Always powers on in the 'level' position, so you don't have to calibrate it if you reset it to some funky angle, just power off then on. It's kind of fun to use, I find myself looking for all kinds of things to level around the house.
It's durable, I've dropped it so many times I can't believe it's still working. Good battery life, but I use rechargeables (AAA) for best value. One thing I didn't like was that the magnets on the bottom attract tons of steel junk in my shop. A quick hit with a hammer and punch knocked the magnets out. I kept the magnets in the other one, because they are good for many projects.
